Leading Swiss luxury watchmaker Roger Dubuis presents the exquisite limited edition Geneva Seal Excalibur Chronograph single pusher model with Flying Tourbillon.
Produced in a limited edition of just 8 pieces, this outstanding model was especially created to mark the 125th anniversary of the renowned Geneva Seal (Poinçon de Genève), and was the first Roger Dubuis timepiece to conform to its new standards. The principal change in the new requirements outlined by the Geneva Seal attests the entire watch is Geneva Seal certified, no longer the movement alone. Roger Dubuis is the only watchmaker worldwide to have every one of its timepieces stamped with the Poinçon de Genève, the pledge of handcrafted excellence.
Technical excellence and powerful design are the Excalibur collection’s defining characteristics. This new Chronograph with single pusher and Flying Tourbillon, housed in a 45 mm diameter pink-gold case, is the perfect incarnation of the avant-garde spirit that personifies the Genevan Manufacture.
In addition to the flying tourbillon at 9 o’clock, the power reserve display at 12 o’clock and the 45-minute chronograph counter at 3 o’clock, the timepiece is distinguished by its platinum micro-rotor, visible from the dial side of the watch. And exceptionally, this oscillating weight bears in full view on its exposed portion the Geneva Seal – normally stamped only on the movement – supplemented on either side with the inscription «125 years».
The Geneva Seal officially came into force in 1886. Bestowed by the State of Geneva on a select few watchmakers, it constitutes the official guarantee that the mechanical watch movement is hand-made, assembled and regulated in Geneva and that it respects the strict requirements of handcrafted excellence in watchmaking. Every component of a movement bearing the Seal is hand-finished and finely decorated, even those that are never exposed to view. A timepiece certified by the Geneva Seal guarantees the exclusivity, reliability and origin of the watch.
At Roger Dubuis, adoption of the Geneva Seal goes hand in hand with the quest for excellence that has characterized the brand since its creation in 1995. As the company sees it, the Hallmark of Geneva is not an end in itself: it is the starting point in its pursuit of excellence.
