Roger Dubuis launches two new versions of the Velvet Joaillerie Automatic and Excalibur 42 Chronograph
July 30, 2014: Roger Dubuis has presented two outstanding timepieces that typify the best qualities of the brand, the Velvet Joaillerie Automatic for her and the Excalibur 42 Chronograph for him.
Velvet Joaillerie Automatic has an incredible set of details, right from the blackened numerals and appliques to the trompe l’oeil part-circle, part-barrel shaped case. The attachments, set with diamonds, merge into the case and extend onto the bracelet with the central horn – part of the brand’s DNA – becoming a subtle embellishment.
The bezel and bracelet sparkle with 262 diamonds. While 66 diamonds add a decorative halo to the bezel, the bracelet is resplendent with 196 diamonds, totalling 1.33 carats and 1.65 carats respectively.
The Excalibur 42 Chronograph is a dash of elegance. With the generous 42 mm diameter, the chronograph makes an immediate impression of robustness. Its firmly masculine, sporting appeal is reinforced by a straight-line design.
The Excalibur 42 Chronograph is inspired by the World of the Warrior and carries the hallmark of the brand’s ingenuity in its mechanisms. Its elegant case houses the new RD681 automatic chronograph movement with a micro-rotor.
Both the Velvet Joaillerie Automatic and the Excalibur 42 Chronoraph are embossed with the Poinçon de Genève, hallmark of watchmaking excellence, as do all Roger Dubuis timepieces.
