Diva is an Icon of chic and charm. The world of the Diva is perhaps best defined by thinking of her as a “muse”. Her entire personality expresses a specific point of view or vision. Her passionate nature, totally dedicated to cultivating elegance, and daring character, are an inexhaustible source of inspiration. The world of the Diva has inspired ROGER DUBUIS to unveil its brand new Velvet Collection dedicated to women.
The Velvet Amethysts and Spinels model plays in different tones of light and shade, and exhibits a kaleidoscope of colours that are both deep and strong. Amethysts and spinels are intertwined like a Byzantine mosaic on the 36 mm titanium and DLC case. Different materials and precious stones create a dazzling mixture of colours to produce a mystical array of reflected tones in this model. Amethysts and Spinels watch combines all the features of a high end mechanical timepiece exclusively dedicated to women. This ultra glamorous model is produced in a limited edition of 188 pieces.
On its dial, numerals and appliques darkened by DLC give the aesthetic trompe-l’oeil impression of being in relief. In the foreground, a black brushed centre-dial reveals the brand name ROGER DUBUIS, while the black brushed sunray effect exterior contrasts with the purple of the elongated Roman numerals. A game of hide-and-seek between the tones of light and shade soon commences, highlighted by the bright colouring of the deeply-tinted bracelet.
On the bezel, the amethysts perform a dazzling dance of light and their glittering covers the entire watch right up to the surface of the blackened titanium case. Here the stones play with time, and the horns are set with attachments that merge with the bracelet to wrap the watch around the wrist. Precious links between the case and the bracelet, these attachments reflect a daring design. The Amethysts and Spinels model is equipped with the RD 821 automatic mechanical movement that is designed, developed and produced in-house.
The femininity and jewellery spirit of this watch are also emphasised by the white gold model set with diamonds. One hundred diamonds are set into the case and the buckle of this watch (approx. 1.77 carats), matched by a silvered dial decorated with black Roman numerals and a strap in black satin-finished fabric.
Like all models produced by the Genevan watchmaker ROGER DUBUIS, the Velvet models comply with all the latest requirements for the “Poinçon de Genève”. This mark of quality, issued by the Canton of Geneva to a small number of manufacturers, represents an official guarantee that the watch and its functions operate correctly. It also certifies that its mechanical watch movement is made by hand, assembled and regulated in Geneva and that it complies with the strict requirements laid down for the watch manufacture. Currently, Roger Dubuis is the only watch Manufacture to produce 100% of its movements in accordance with the criteria of the “Poinçon de Genève”.
