Roger Dubuis SAW RD78

        Created in 1980s by one of the most talented, Patek Philippe’s watchmakers – Roger Dubuis and by the famous Franck Muller’s designer – Carlos Dias, Roger Dubuis became a well known and respected watch-making company synonymous with the hallmark of Poinçon de Genève quality, as well as with a chronometer certified highly fashionable trend-setter for the entire luxury watch-making branch.

        The brand released, in 2004 the very first SAW- Roger Dubuis Sports Activity Watch, and ever since, the company continually improved and upgraded this highly successful sports watches line, which recently was enriched with a brand new timepiece created to top the most exigent standards of accuracy and style, due to its impeccable functionality and refined aesthetical beauty.

        SAW Movement RD78, Chronograph sublimely merges the classy refinement of the rose gold case and bezel with the youthful air of natural rubber inserts. The rubber strap features a large “RD” logo, and furthermore as an individualizing Roger Dubois signature, the strap is fixed with the aid of triple lugs to the robust case. At the core of the timepiece, beats an intricate, Poinçon de Genève high-quality mechanical self-winding chronograph movement which confers the watch a 42-hours power reserve.

        The stylish black dial features warm rose gold, appliquéd hour indices along with two Arabic numeral hour markers for the 6 and 12 o’clock positions made of the same precious material. At 9 o’clock position the watch features a second’s counter and also a semi-instantaneous 45-minutes counter located at 3 o’clock position.

         Roger Dubois designers produced a lady’s version of this model, where they implied a highly sophisticated combination of materials and textures (stainless steel/rose gold, white rubber, all merged with the glittering diamond setting) creating thus a refined and delicate wristwatch for women, which gains a plus of elegance but still retains a playful sporty touch.

        Animated by a mechanical self-winding movement, this version features a white dial fitted with black Roman numeral hour markers and, as well as the first model it features an additional blue contrasting tough, within the small seconds hand. This version features a second’s sub-dial located at 6 o’clock position and is available in rose gold or stainless steel.

        Due to a long tradition of exclusivity, the line has only 28 timepieces of timeless beauty and irreproachable precision, but we can only expect that their prices will be just as exclusive.
