In 2018, Roger Dubuis hits the runway with its very own Haute Couture watch trilogy offering a whole new take on its supremely feminine VELVET collection. The three new VELVET CAVIAR models are a tribute to the expressive innovation and risk-taking for which the Manufacture is renowned.
The contemporary and seductive VELVET collection cultivates the art of the extravagant, and plays out with graphic motifs on dials, subtly distorting the shapes of cases, turning lugs into precious links. These glamorous tributes are powered with an automatic RD830 calibre.
Coupled with the collection’s signature diamond-studded white or pink gold cases, VELVET CAVIAR brings an attractive choice of straps and dials. Each will enable women to express their mood of the day or one of the multiple facets of their nature. Graced with striking colour contrasts, shimmering mother-of-pearl or darkly sophisticated black lacquer, the distinctive faces of these stunning models feature feminine flourishes reflecting a rich and varied character.
Their distinctive Haute Couture origins are showcased through a choice of spectacularly sparkling straps made of miniscule black or white crystal marbles inspired by the finest caviar. In addition to its appealing sparkling effect, this unique and innovative material picks up the light in an inimitably elegant, utterly sophisticated manner, without a trace of any form of ostentation.
Drawing upon all its unparalleled technical skill and expertise in working with ‘disruptive ‘materials, Roger Dubuis now leverages its recent motorsports experience by transforming a polymer into a rubber-lined molten material sprinkled with light-reflecting “spangled dust”.
