These high jewellery versions of ROGER DUBUIS’ prestigious watch models were introduced to match the occasion of New Year celebrations in 2012. It was for the first time that ROGER DUBUIS has created a cross-collection line of jewellery watches. Set with brilliant-cut or baguette-cut diamonds, the La Monégasque Automatic watch, the La Monégasque Chronograph watch and the Excalibur Skeleton Double Tourbillon watch, have been produced exclusively in gold and in extremely limited editions, to mark this special occasion. All the models are stamped with the prestigious “Poinçon de Genève.
La Monégasque Automatic Fine Jewellery: The year 2011 has been a turning-point in the history of ROGER DUBUIS. With its new La Monégasque Collection, the brand has achieved the feat of re-inventing itself while losing none of its identity. With its bold, drawn-out lines, La Monégasque draws its inspiration from the spirit of Monte Carlo and its intense love of gambling.
This Automatic model is suitably adorned with 124 brilliant-cut diamonds, for a total of approximately 1 carat. Its case, available in pink gold, measures a very respectable 42 mm in diameter. This little jewel of a watch houses an RD821 movement, entirely designed, developed and produced in the ROGER DUBUIS Workshops. It has hour, minute and small seconds functions at 6 o’clock. The watch is delivered with a black alligator-skin strap with a pin buckle.
La Monégasque Chronograph Fine Jewellery: Fascinating and captivating in its exuberance, the gambling world that dominates Monte Carlo has a lot in common with the La Monégasque Collection. Both are characterised by the combination of passion and elegance, and are daring and selfcontrolled.
The Chronograph model has been specially selected for the Jewellery line. It clearly embodies the brand’s capacity for self-renewal. Its dial with its brushed sunray effect centre and brushed surrounding circle, is adorned with gold transfers and appliques to form an ensemble of unparalleled refinement. The RD680 calibre with which it is equipped, represents the latest generation of ROGER DUBUIS mechanical movements. Featuring the automatic micro-rotor winding system that is characteristic of the Manufacture, it is equipped with hour, minute and small seconds functions at 9 o’clock with a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock. This La Monégasque Chronograph model, with its 44 mm diameter, sparkles with 116 brilliant-cut diamonds for a total of approximately 1.4 carats.
Excalibur Skeleton Double Tourbillon Fine Jewellery: The only one of its kind in the market, this Skeleton Double Tourbillon watch from the legendary Excalibur Collection is the latest example of contemporary Fine Watchmaking signed by ROGER DUBUIS.
Equipped with two differential flying tourbillon mechanisms, this hand-wound RD01SQ calibre is made up of no less than 319 parts assembled on a plate representing an advanced example of openwork. The 45 mm diameter case, in pink or white gold, flashes with 408 baguette-cut diamonds, for a total of approximately 19.99 carats.
All models are stamped with the “Poinçon de Genève”. Faithful to the tradition of excellence that gives the House its reputation, the watches in this exclusive Jewellery line comply with all the latest requirements of the “Poinçon de Genève”. This mark of quality, issued by the Canton of Geneva to a small number of watchmakers, certifies that the watch movement that the watch includes is made by hand, assembled and regulated in Geneva and that it complies with the strict requirements laid down for the watch manufacture. ROGER DUBUIS is today the only watch Manufacture that has all its movements certified with the “Poinçon de Genève” stamp.
These models are available only from the network of ROGER DUBUIS boutiques. This line of Jewellery timepieces is supplied exclusively to ROGER DUBUIS boutiques. Only a small number of watches are available in each country. This exclusive character makes each of these Jewellery watches an extremely sought-after collector’s item.
