Modern Times at Roger Dubuis

Geneva’s Roger Dubuis is now employing the latest micro-mechanical technology, but not in the way you might think. The interior of the company’s newest Excalibur 45mm Chronograph ($51,900) is a traditional column-wheel movement, conforming as always to the long-standing conventions of the Geneva Seal. Instead, the company has applied two advanced techniques—laser engraving and galvanic treatment—to obtain the crisp Roman numerals on this 88-piece edition of Excalibur. The look is indicative of subtle changes occurring at Roger Dubuis. While the company retains its extravagant take on watch design, many of its details are undergoing modernization and refinement, which makes for an interesting upcoming season for watch collectors.
