To mark this special occasion, Roger Dubuis would like to present two outstanding timepieces that typify the best qualities of the brand, the Velvet Joaillerie Automatic for her and the Excalibur 42 Chronograph for him, ideal as a gift for that special person at this special time.
The spirit of the Geneva-based watchmaker shines through each detail of Velvet Joaillerie Automatic, right from the blackened numerals and appliques to the trompe l’oeil part-circle, part-barrel shaped case. The attachments, set with diamonds, merge into the case and extend onto the bracelet with the central horn – part of the brand’s DNA – becoming a subtle embellishment.
The bezel and bracelet sparkle with no less than 262 diamonds. While 66 diamonds add a decorative halo to the bezel, the bracelet is resplendent with 196 diamonds, totalling 1.33 carats and 1.65 carats respectively. With its glamorously elegant presence, the Velvet Joaillerie Automatic typifies the best characteristics of Roger Dubuis’ World of the Diva, a fitting tribute to the modern woman who is both suave and sophisticated while possessing an unmistakable sense of her own style.
The Excalibur 42 Chronograph brings a dash of elegance to the exacting world of the chronograph. The generous 42 mm diameter and svelte design proclaims its watchmaking pedigree whilst underlining its special identity. The chronograph makes an immediate impression of robustness, with a touch of daring that becomes a recognisable sign. Its firmly masculine, sporting appeal is reinforced by a straight-line design.
The Excalibur 42 Chronograph is inspired by the World of the Warrior and carries the hallmark of the brand’s ingenuity in its mechanisms. Its elegant case houses the new RD681 automatic chronograph movement with a micro-rotor.
Both the Velvet Joaillerie Automatic and the Excalibur 42 Chronoraph are embossed with the Poinçon de Genève, hallmark of watchmaking excellence, as do all the Roger Dubuis’ timepieces.
