Not One To Follow The Crowd - Roger Dubuis
Roger Dubuis has been in the world of Swiss watches for a relatively short period of time, and definitely isn’t one who will follow the crowd. The company itself was only established just over two decades ago, but since then has taken the watch world by storm. When we compare them to other brands they started manufacturing their own movements within a short time period of 4 years. They make a large selection of limited edition watches.
Roger Dubuis as a company feature extraordinary watches that don’t compare to that of many others, and they do it well. These are the ultimate luxury item for the discerning buyer that do not want to follow the crowd, and for whom price is no object. Past models have included the Sympathie Chronograph and Sympathie Perpetual calendar which featured a more square shaped case.
Roger Dubuis - Excalibur Collection Of Watches
The Excalibur watch lineup in the Roger Dubuis range is truly a unique item when we compare it to others. Mainly a lineup for men, we see models equipped with a single and double flying tourbillon. Watches featuring heavily skeletonized movements and more subtle automatic models. Interesting, Roger Dubuis do not offer a chronograph in this line-up.
Models such as the Spider Pirelli feature an incredibly unique black strap. The black strap is no ordinary rubber strap, as the black rubber inlay is from a Pirelli race winning tyre that has competed in real races. A truly unique black strap indeed! Certainly, a watch for those whom status is the ultimate, price is no object and require a piece of outstanding quality. Another watch in the Excalibur lineup that is of considerable note is the Knights Of The Round Table model. This watch features an automatic, in-house caliber, but what sets its apart is the truly unique dial. This is a dial that will definitely not disappoint.
Inspired by the story of King Arthur, the Knights Of The Round Table pays homage to exactly that. Each hour marker on the dial is cast in pink gold and then hand sculpted to be individual, each one representing a different knight. They are seated around a pink gold and blue table and housed inside a beautiful gold case. The watch features a striking blue alligator leather strap and buckle which ties in nicely and makes this a truly special item. This watch is an item of beauty that does not compare to any other and piece that will go down in history as unique. Limited to 28 pieces.
Roger Dubuis - Velvet Collection Of Watches
The Velvet collection of watches are the more feminine lineup for the brand, with all models featuring precious metals and diamonds, a luxury piece indeed. Models come in yellow gold, white gold and pink gold and all feature an automatic movement. Again, a collection where price is not the object, but exclusivity. Models either come on an alligator leather strap and buckle or precious metal bracelet, with a wide range of alligator leather straps in a variety of colours.
Dials also come in an array of colours including white, black and blue, but also in an exquisitely bright flower motif. Certain dial options come in an array of brilliant white diamonds encrusted throughout the entire dial, displaying ultimate luxury for those unconcerned with price, but rather the highest of status.
Roger Dubuis as a company and a brand have grown enormously since their humble beginnings and they certainly create a product of unparalleled luxury for the men and women who wish to turn heads.
