LADOIRE Genève RGT Punk Rock Limited Edition

Unveiled during the Geneva Time Exhibition in January 2010, the RGT Punk Rock is the latest interpretation of the exclusive Roller Guardian Time from LADOIRE Geneva. Without marketing objective or constraint from marketing criteria, Lionel Ladoire gave full rein to creativity, at the crossroads of the watchmaking tradition and atmosphere punk-hardcore.

LADOIRE explores the creative possibilities provided by the opulent RGT and its technical movement to provide a timepiece with a very strong personality. The RGT Punk Rock, limited to 3 pieces only, features a titanium case and a hand-made skeleton dial.

New player since 2007 in the Luxury industry, LADOIRE is positioned on the market of high-end watch making, in the exclusive segment of avant-garde Swiss timepieces with complications.

Emblematic of this visionary ambition, ROLLER GUARDIAN TIME (RGT) is the first timepiece created by LADOIRE. With a mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured in-house, the RGT is an unconventional piece that intrigues with its avant-garde look and display completely non-standard. Baptized “Sur Mesure”, this collection proposes to custom-make the RGT to create unique pieces in both design and technical component level, according to the desires of its clientele.
