Established in Geneva in 1995, the Roger Dubuis story is that of a constant pursuit of excellence and hyper-performance.
From the very beginning, Roger Dubuis has been a fully integrated Manufacture. Four years in development, the first movements to be entirely designed and developed in-house were introduced in 1999. Each bore the Poinçon de Genève hallmark in recognition of its superlative finishing.
Determined to give itself the means to fulfil its ambitions, in 2001 Roger Dubuis opened its manufacturing facilities in Meyrin, just outside Geneva. This light-filled, avant-garde building became the new home for every one of the specialisations required to produce a Roger Dubuis watch, as well as management teams.
In 2008, the Maison became part of the Richemont group.
The Manufacture continued to make its mark with the introduction of the in-house RD-101 calibre. The world’s first mechanical movement with four sprung balances connected by five differentials, it was first presented at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) of 2013 in a case of silicon — another world premiere.
In 2015 Roger Dubuis reaffirmed its strong position in the field of contemporary skeleton watches with the launch of the Excalibur Spider Skeleton and spent 2016 focused on the flagship collection Excalibur. 2017 would be another milestone year for the Manufacture, when it released the first movement with a mainplate, bridges and upper tourbillon cage made entirely of carbon. The year after, in 2018, Roger Dubuis announced its partnership with two legendary institutions in the automotive world — Pirelli and Lamborghini Squadra Corse. These partnerships resulted in the Excalibur Spider Pirelli and the Excalibur Aventador S, followed by the Excalibur Huracán in 2019. The brand continued down the path of synergistic collaboration in the automotive world, becoming the official sponsor of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo race. More innovation followed in 2020 with the redesign of the Excalibur collection: a new territory of expression for the brand’s creativity as witnessed, the following year, by new versions of the emblematic timepieces Monotourbillon, Double Tourbillon and Monobalancier.
Riding this wave of reinvigorated creativity, in 2022 Manufacture Roger Dubuis became the Official Timing Partner of the legendary Goodwood Festival of Speed, cementing its place in the world of automotive enthusiasts.
