The four seasons of reincarnation, flowers bloom, time is like flowing water, gone forever in silence. We are always lamenting the ruthlessness, haste, and invisibility of time, and we are always looking for a way to record the traces of time … so, the clock describes the trajectory of time, and we are always reminded of the movement of time, The time of the water, use the limited time to extend the infinite journey, make life more exciting, let people’s life bloom. There are many brands in the world of watches and clocks, but there are only a handful of watches that appeal to me. Among them, ROGERDUBUIS is one of them. It is the only one that is irreplaceable in my heart. The only thing here is my knowledge, in-depth understanding of the brand and my feelings. I will divide it into three parts to briefly explain the unique impression left by ROGERDUBUIS. I hope that friends who like it can also Leave your footprints.
The only design:
To some extent, the design of a watch is the most recognizable. Being remembered at first glance in the impression is also a design success, and Roger Dubuis has such recognition. In a symbolic sense, the Hommage series is like the fifth element of Roger Dubuis, and is the energy source of the entire brand: a world of ‘extraordinary machinery’. The other four worlds of Roger Dubuis naturally revolve around it: the Excalibur series representing the world of Warrior, the LaMonégasque series showing the world of Player, the Velvet series symbolizing the world of Diva, And the Pulsion series that belongs to the world of Venturer. The Hommage series celebrates these ‘extraordinary machines’, aiming to promote the professional skills and proud traditions of the world of watches.
The Hommage watch redesigned in a time-out style brings together all the traditional features of Roger Dubuis. The new generation of watchmakers takes the masters who created this collection as a model, which not only gives the watches a new style, but also makes them more vivid and expressive. Slender lugs, sunk bezels, large Roman numerals, a grooved crown and a unique folding clasp, this watch not only carries the usual styling characteristics of the series, but also has been given a Elegant new elements in the series.
The HommageDoubleFlyingTourbillon double flying tourbillon hand-guilloché watch fully displays the beauty of traditional guilloché art and reflects the bold combination of tradition and modern craftsmanship. The special details of this watch include the slight tilt of the lugs, the satin-brushed finish on the side of the case, and the increased width between the lugs to ensure perfect wear.The combination of these details enhances the visual and tactile ergonomics. Comfort. Although this watch has a large size, it still retains a delicate and elegant shape, maintaining the classic bloodlines and exposing a charming temperament. The polished and satin-finished alternating surface treatments are accompanied by the sunburst that has become a feature of the Roger Dubuis brand, combined with the contrast between the rhodium-plated movement and the rose gold case, creating a charm together. Extraordinary composition effect.
The guilloché art from the 16th century focuses on ‘decorating objects with carved, etched, and interlaced lines.’ The grooves that make up the pattern are only one hundredth of a millimeter (0.05 millimeters to 0.1 millimeters) in depth, and it’s not hard to imagine how precise a detail is needed to complete a fascinating work. This fact clearly illustrates that under the hands of the sculpting craftsman, two identical engraved patterns can never appear; the craftsman must scratch the turning knife four times on each nick or groove with skillful handwork, and Not the usual once or twice! The dimensions of each groove must be carefully controlled to achieve overall harmony, and the three-dimensional effect presented in this way is really shocking. It also confirmed that each watch with a hand-guilloché dial is definitely a unique work of art.
The only mark:
The imprint of Geneva is in a high position in the field of horology. The models with the imprint of Geneva have also made countless watch fans long, and ROGERDUBUIS is particularly outstanding in this regard, and it has become a guarantee of fine watchmaking. The Hommage collection was created in 1995 when the watchmaking factory was founded, in a unique way to pay tribute to the generations of watchmaking masters, but also to celebrate their inherited and continued watch tradition. This series has undergone a complete renaissance with new works launched in 2014, reconsolidating its core position in the RogerDubuis world.
Roger Dubuis clearly flaunts the banner of the Swiss watchmaking cradle, proudly showing its fine blood of Geneva origin. Only watches assembled, embedded, and adjusted in the Geneva area are eligible for the Geneva Seal certification. Therefore, the seal uses the eagle and key with the crown on the Geneva emblem, plus the words Geneva.
Although the new Geneva Seal standard is more stringent than ever, Roger Dubuis can continue to pass the test with outstanding performance. In the Roger Dubuis factory, 60% of the craftsmen, that is, about sixty people, are divided into twenty groups, and each group is responsible for meeting a requirement of the Geneva Seal Certification. Protecting and admiring this regional handicraft tradition requires more than rigorous attitude. It also requires investment in time to make a movement that complies with the standards of the Geneva mark and requires 40% more work than usual. This also explains why Roger Dubuis is the only watch factory whose all watches have passed this certification mark. It was so in the past, and it will be so in the future.
As the founder of the watchmaking factory and ‘Soul Master’, Mr. Roger Dubuy has continuously played a spiritually inspiring and inspiring role in it. He has personally invested in the design of watches. When the ‘master’, who has always been known for his demanding requirements and high aesthetic ability, praised something ‘perfect’, his authors can be confident that he has indeed achieved the highest level of excellence on this much-watched ideal.

It also symbolizes his highest appreciation and recognition for this watch. This kind of signature has a high degree of recognition on some occasions, increasing your taste and connotation.
It is also worth mentioning that, when studying at the Geneva School of Clocks and Watches, Mr. Roger Dubuy’s student number was 208, which has therefore become the limited production quantity of today’s HommageFlyingTourbillon flying tourbillon watches. The training in the school gave Mr. Roger Dubuy unprecedented horological skills. Therefore, the limited number of watches is on the one hand the recognition of the knowledge and technology possessed by Mr. Roger Dubuy, and on the other hand it is also Roger Dubuy. Mr. Pride and self-confidence in the brand.
The only movement:
The RD620 self-winding movement in the Hommage Automatic watch has a stable vibration frequency of 28,800 times per hour, which is the representative of the new generation of Roger Dubuis movement. This self-winding movement is designed, developed and manufactured in-house and meets the strict standards of the Geneva Seal. It is characterized by special-shaped splints, springs and levers, as well as a miniature rotor that is one of Roger Dubuis’s representative works. All components have been hand-refined and of superb quality, so the sapphire crystal on the 42 mm diameter case back is engraved with the signature of Mr. Roger Dubuis on metal, symbolizing the special pride of the watch factory.
The HommageDoubleFlyingTourbillon hand-engraved watch is also equipped with a new movement. The RD100 movement was born after many R & D discussions. It consists of 452 hand-finished parts and is equipped with a 50-hour power reserve. Its production time is 1,200 hours- Of these, 360 hours were devoted to meeting the certification standards of the Geneva Seal-and they were then tested for a full 6 weeks.
