Dare to be Rare: Raging Mechanics Tokyo Event - Five Elements Rule for the Raging Mechanics Japan Launch

Avatar
KIH
Roger Dubuis is getting into high gear in Tokyo. The venue was unique; an area which used to be the "warehouse" district where the population at night is almost ZERO. Maybe these areas are getting hip like New York's Hudson Yard. You must take a bus or cab from the nearest station but for this event, a special van transported guests back and forth from Shinagawa station...Story

Roger Dubuis x Lamborghini | Palm Springs, CA

Last week I had the privilege and the pleasure to attend an event hosted by Roger Dubuis (RD), together with Lamborghini and PuristsPro (with special thanks to one PuristS Prime!) I’ve not had close exposure to either brands, so it was definitely something I was very much looking forward to! Below is a not-so-brief report (the good photos are credited to Lamborghini and the not so good ones to me…) RD has been on a bit of a motorsports tear the past year, with the announcement of a collaboration/partnership ... ...Story

A match made in heaven: Roger Dubuis forming partnership with Automobili Lamborghini and live shots of the Excalibur Aventador S

Avatar

Roger Dubuis has been a symbol of cutting edge design, innovative use of material and ground breaking movement. Exclusive but not totally un-approachable. Similar can be said of the marque from Sant'Agata Bolognese. It was in the making for a while and I'm so thrilled to finally see the launch of this collaboration! From the press kit: It sounds like an astounding performance...Story

Hands on review of the Roger Dubuis Hommage Automatic Open Dial

Avatar
foversta
It is always strange to discover the existence of a watch by seeing it for the first time in a boutique. It is the experience that happened to me a few days ago in the Bucherer store in Paris when I saw a very particular Roger Dubuis Hommage Automatic. Indeed, it was distinguished by its open dial, far from the usual guilloché dial of the collection. If we had to summarize in a few words the Hommage collection, I would say it symbolizes the comeback of the brand to the classicism of the early years embodied by the "Bulletin d'Observatoire" pieces but with an aesthetic approach a bit more demonstrative as evidenced by the guilloche dial...Story

Wrist-testing the RD EasyDiver ChronoExcel

It is a considerably rare event to spot a Roger Dubuis timepiece in the wild, but I managed to catch one during this year's BaselWorld 2015: thanks to its owner, a fellow Purist, a red-tipped EasyDiver ChronoExcel got into my hands, a sports watch with significant horological as well as design/manufacture content, both of which reveal themselves to the beholder only after an intense crush - this is exactly what I did (actually, I was that surprised that I forgot something very crucial - see below!): One of ... ...Story

Roger Dubuis - The 2014 Hommage Collection

Avatar
Kong
Roger Dubuis founded his manufactured in 1995, and created watches as tribute to his teachers and friends whom had helped him during his journey of learning the art of watchmaking. Thus the name 'Hommage'. This year, a new 'Hommage Series' in honour of Mr Roger Dubuis is created by a new generation at Roger Dubuis Maison. Still featuring the same classic design and traditional watchmaking but with a bold refinement in aesthetic and all Poinon de Genve certified...Story

In anticipation of tomorrow's opening of SIHH...

a few shots of a masterpiece of the Hommage collection, the centrepiece of tomorrow's attention! This one is a white gold flying tourbillon with power reserve: and a For me of special appeal is the very dramatic yet subtly coloured mother-of-pearl dial: It has a great depth and really adds a well defined amount of spice to the face of the watch. It can be however almost 'mean' if the right (i.e. harsh) light hits it (very important if you want to get some attention with a tourbillon in your neighbourhood): Overall a very lively interpretation of RD's most important (=defining) collection. We shall see much more as of tomorrow, and I promise you a lot of additional spice ! Cheers, Magnus...Story

Roger Dubuis: Sneak Peak at new Hommage @ SIHH 2014

Avatar
Ornatus-Mundi
The Hommage collection was first launched in 1995 at the time of the company’s founding, as a distinctive means of paying homage to generations of watchmakers, as well as to the noble horological traditions they faithfully perpetuate. It is currently experiencing a sweeping revival fully unveiled with a 2014 range that cements its place at the heart of the Roger Dubuis universe. Symbolically speaking, the Hommage collection represents the fifth element radiating throughout the brand range: Incredible Mechanics. .....Story

Starting from Scratch - fascinating hints for Roger Dubuis' SIHH 2014

Avatar
Ornatus-Mundi
Re-inventing the classic watch - a tedious task. The Manufacture Roger Dubuis had one single collection that was a defining streak fro the brand and an orphan at the same time: the Hommage Collection . Being one of the very first offerings (and one of the few where you could consider the brand and its founder being one and the same ;-)) it was nearly abandoned in the wake of the oversized, crazy and - mmhh - 'out-there' pieces. At SIHH 2013, a bright sign of light was suddenly visible: the RD Hommage Tribute to the Minute Repeater (see my article here ): Its success with the press, the retailers and the customers must have been tremendous...Story

RD Excalibur 36 Limited edition - Jewellery: For a Sparkling Festive Season!

Avatar
Ornatus-Mundi
Roger Dubuis always paid significant attention to its female clients and offered an abundance of tempting feminine timepieces. The new Excalibur collection was joined by some really outstanding ladies' watches earlier this year as the Excalibur 36 Limited edition - Jewellery saw the (stage-)light: Housed in a white gold case of just 36mm diameter, a truly sparkling watch which reveals some fantastic individual jewellery techniques only upon closer inspection The roman numerals masterfully play with the incoming light. In fact, they are produced using a metal coating on a disk made of sapphire crystal, while the latter covers a dial paved with diamonds, including the areas beneath the roman numerals! In total, 560 diamonds adorn this limited edition of 88 timepieces in and outside of this magnificent watch: Aren't the smooth and elegant lines of the diamond inlet just adorable? I cannot take my eaves of the areas where the lugs join the case band... It is driven by a Cal...Story
