SIHH 2015 Roundup: Roger Dubuis – Photos, Specs, Prices, All You Needed To Know Replica Wholesale Center

There are a range of special details on the watch that I like. As an example, you’ll discover a ruby crystal in one of the pushers (what I believe is for the chronograph), in addition to a lapis lazuli background for your moon phase indicator. The dial also needs to be amazingly three-dimensional in its appearance, and overall quite bold to behold.Roger Dubuis further says that for the man who purchases the Hommage Millesime view, they can create custom links for the 18k gold pocket watch chain. These custom hyperlinks may have special engravings on them or text. Yet again, this bit special Roger Dubuis Hommage Millesime will exist as a one-of-a-kind production produced since the first of its type in a new series that will exist as a new “vintage restoration project” each year. The Roger Dubuis Hommage Millesime pocket watch will further be exclusively available in the Roger Dubuis boutique in Geneva (opening July 2015) and also the price is currently $892,500. The event is meant to raise cash for a medical charity, to which 100% of the proceeds go. Every one of those watches submitted are completely unique and donated by the participating brands. People today get very interested in the results, as it is not just a sign of the economy when it comes to Monaco’s wealthy elite (and many others), but in addition the interest people have in particular brands and versions. The total return of Just Watch 2013 was 5,066,000 Euros (most of that is due to one opinion).For 2013 there have been some significant winners and losers. All the lots sold of class, with a few moving over estimate, and a few below estimate. The majority of the many nevertheless sold inside the estimated price, and those aren’t covered in this report. So let us take a peek at the major winners and losers of the 2013 Only Watch auction. This guide is only going to cover pick lots, and for a complete list of all of the watches that were up for auction you can view our first Only Watch 2013 article here.Scattered in this guide and in the image gallery below are some images from Roger Dubuis’ 2012 ad campaign for the Excalibur collection. I don’t know who they hired with this and other advertisements, but once I watched them I was like “whoa…!” Having a title such as “Excalibur” it’s not surprising that they would take a fantasy-style medieval strategy to the artwork for the advertisements.

Skeleton watches were the entirety of the Roger Dubuis offerings at SIHH, encompassing its flagship Excalibur Skeleton Tourbillons, as well as a new, entry-level skeleton automatic.

Roger Dubuis is synonymous with skeleton watches, particularly its open-worked tourbillons with their recognisable star-shaped bridges and skeletons were the focus of the offerings at SIHH 2015. The new line-up started with the Excalibur Spider Skeleton Flying Tourbillon at the top of the price spectrum, and ending with the Excalibur Automatic Skeleton, the first skeleton watch from the brand that is not a tourbillon.

Excalibur Spider is a new sub-line of the King Arthur-inspired collection with its distinctive notched bezel and triple lugs. The Excalibur Spider watches have skeletonized cases, hollowed out at the lugs and flanks of the case, making them lighter, a useful feature for a watches that large.

The Excalibur Spider Skeleton Double Flying Tourbillon has a 47 mm case in alternating titanium and black DLC-coated titanium, with striking red aluminum inserts in the case band, crown and dial flange. Despite its size, the weight on the wrist is modest, due to the skeletonized case.

Inside is the RD01SQ movement, an open-worked movement with twin tourbillon regulators. Coated in dark grey ruthenium and finished with perlage (also known as pearling), the bridges and base plate sparkle at certain angles as the perlage catches the light. The barrel bridge is in the form of a five-pointed star, the trademark flourish in Roger Dubuis’ skeleton watches.

Limited to 188 pieces, the Excalibur Spider Skeleton Double Flying Tourbillon is priced at S$395,000.

Similar but less flamboyant is the Excalibur Spider Skeleton Flying Tourbillon. The case is also 45 mm and skeletonized, but it’s brushed grey titanium throughout for a more monochromatic look.

The movement is similarly styled, with the star-shaped bridge and pearled ruthenium plates, but with a single tourbillon. This is part of the regular collection, and priced at S$213,000.

Another version of the Excalibur Spider Skeleton Flying Tourbillon is a limited edition of 88 pieces, with 60 baguette-cut diamonds set onto the rubber coating of the titanium bezel – the first time diamonds have been set into rubber.

The rest of the case is finished a matte black DLC coating, giving it slightly more gloss than the matte rubber on the bezel. This will cost S$260,000.

Much more accessible is the Excalibur Automatic Skeleton with the newly developed RD820SQ movement. The most affordable Roger Dubuis skeleton watch to date, this has all the signature design elements of Roger Dubuis skeleton tourbillon watches, including the star-shaped bridge and perlage on the ruthenium-plated plates. Visually it is extremely similar to the skeleton tourbillons, in fact the casual observer would find it hard to separate the two across a room.

This is the first skeletonised, self-winding movement from Roger Dubuis. It’s essentially an inverted movement; all the action on the front with both the micro-rotor and regulator on the dial side.

At 42 mm in diameter and 11.44 mm high, the Excalibur Automatic Skeleton is a manageable size, sliding easily under a cuff, and combines the brand’s signature look with a lower price. The Excalibur Automatic Skeleton starts at S$84,000 for the version in DLC titanium, rising to S$103,000 for the pink gold model. And the pink gold skeleton with a baguette diamond-set bezel is S$148,000.
