Roger Dubuis, leading manufacturer of fine Swiss watches, will be showcasing a range of their exclusive timepieces at the upcoming Doha Jewellery and Watches Exhibition, held in the Qatari capital from February 24th to March 2nd 2014.

The Roger Dubuis range, including some of the brand’s most iconic pieces, is expected to be one of the highly acclaimed exhibits at the Middle East’s best regarded exhibition of fine watches and jewellery, which traditionally attracts a broad spectrum of the region’s luxury aficionados.

 “Luxury watch lovers in the Middle East are renowned for their marked preference for high-end luxury goods which exude exclusivity and style. By showcasing our outstanding selection of fine watches at Doha Jewellery and Watches Exhibition 2014, we are looking to engage even closer with our select clientele from the region,” said Jean-Sébastien Berland, Regional Brand Director of Roger Dubuis.

Among the standouts of the brand’s collection on display at the Doha Exhibition Centre will be the iconic Excalibur Quatuor that set new standards in innovative watchmaking and the exquisite diamond-encrusted Velvet in rose gold, especially created for the Diva in every woman. These exceptional timepieces will be on view for the first time in the country.

The Excalibur Quatuor in pink gold, with its revolutionary four sprung balance-powered movement, has captivated fine watch lovers with its iconic style and utmost precision. Available in a limited edition of just 88 pieces, this one-of-a-kind timepiece is set to capture the imagination of fine watch lovers in the region.

 

The Excalibur Quatuor marks a new and exceptional achievement in the history of Fine Watchmaking. The exclusive timepiece symbolises the mechanical magic of one of the most innovative manufactures of the 21st century. It pushes the limits in terms of precision and marks one of the major advances in contemporary watchmaking and bears the Poinçon de Genève seal, a hallmark of horological excellence.

The Excalibur Quatuor captures the bravura and creativity of Roger Dubuis better than any other model. It represents innovation while respecting the great traditions of watchmaking. In addition to incorporating four sprung balances, it also features a completely original power-reserve indicator. These two technical feats (patents applied for) have not been developed for their own sake but as part of watchmaking’s permanent pursuit of precision.

 

The Velvet in rose gold is a sparkling masterpiece that effortlessly combines the reliability of a prestigious timepiece with the allure of a fine piece of jewellery. This svelte and elegant model embodies the values of Roger Dubuis’ passion, a daring nature, expertise and a devotion to technical and aesthetic perfection.

The Velvet Fully Paved with diamonds attracts attention and arouses curiosity with its subtle fillet across the dial: the off-centre numerals seem to play between the barrel-shape and the circle, a trompe-l’oeil on two levels.

A magical blend of technical excellence and high luxury, the watch is set with 1,300 diamonds totalling approximately 9 carats.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.

Roger Dubuis watches are designed for individuals, who are a class apart, masters of their destiny and trend-setters in every way. The watches easily straddle different worlds and different lifestyles encompassing the worlds of the Incredible Warrior; the Incredible Player; the Incredible Venturer and the Incredible Diva. These are creations that typify the ultimate in their class – true masterpieces, all of them carrying the prestigious Poinçon de Genève, hallmark of ultimate quality.
