Imbued with the world of gambling, the Monégasque Collection from ROGER DUBUIS reflects a style that is intimately linked to one of the chicest of all the coastal resorts in the Mediterranean. Bathed in sunshine and luminosity, La Monégasque encapsulates the spirit of the location and participates in all the style and glamour of the Principality.
La Monégasque Flying Tourbillon in pink gold displays the technically daring and innovative talent of the designers and watchmakers of the ROGER DUBUIS Manufacture. It is a tribute to the traditional art that it preserves so well. Every detail has been given careful attention: the RD540 hand-wound mechanical movement, manufactured, assembled and decorated by hand, is visible through an anti-reflection sapphire crystal that also reveals a unique dial decoration. A window opens onto a world in relief. At the centre, a silvered disc with a brushed sunray effect is enhanced by the power reserve indicator and the pink gold flying tourbillon.
A brushed sunray effect rhodium-plated intermediate dial carries the white transferred markers outlined in black and a matching ROGER DUBUIS transfer. Lastly, a brushed anthracite circle surrounds it, highlighting the applied Arabic numerals in pink gold outlined in black. The power reserve is given depth with silvered snailing, black transfers and an edge of pink gold. The large date and the power-reserve indicator create perfect symmetry with the flying tourbillon.
Produced in a limited series, La Monégasque Flying Tourbillon in pink gold is destined to delight no more than 188 watch lovers around the world. In its 44 mm case, water-resistant to 5 bar (50 metres), the RD540 calibre with 293 parts meets the new criteria of the “Poinçon de Genève”, crowning this masterpiece of top-flight mechanical watchmaking. Running at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour (3 Hz) with a power reserve of 60 hours, it displays hours and minutes with central hands, an instant large date at 12 o’clock, power reserve at 4.30 and the flying tourbillon at 7.30.
Honouring the spirit of Monte-Carlo, its legendary history and its world of glamour, La Monégasque is a line that demonstrates the company’s creativity, modernity and its ability to continually reinvent watchmaking. La Monégasque Flying Tourbillon in pink gold embodies these values that form the power and the passion associated with ROGER DUBUIS, the highly contemporary Manufacture of fine watchmaking.
