Compared to other Haute Horlogerie houses that date back decades and sometimes centuries ago, Roger Dubuis may seem like a rookie—the company was founded in 1995—but that makes its incredible success all the more impressive. The late Roger Dubuis who first honed his watchmaking skills at Patek Philippe and Longines built a brand that not only managed to set itself apart with the unique design of its watches but also started producing its movements in-house only four years after it launched. All of the house’s calibers are now certified with the prestigious Poinçon de Genève, an award that symbolizes high quality, reliability, and above all craftsmanship.

In 2005, Roger Dubuis became the first company to develop a double tourbillon skeleton and a minute repeater tourbillon—an achievement that speaks a lot about the brand’s commitment to innovation.

But what instantaneously sets apart a Roger Dubois timepiece is the avant-garde design and more precisely the skeletonized movements that let you see inside the complicated mechanisms.

Below, we picked our favorite statement timepieces from the luxury watchmaker’s new collection.

Excalibur Blacklight

This is quite a funky piece—crafted with colorful gems and diamonds, the watch actually glows under UV lights. It has a 42mm case that houses a skeleton automatic caliber made with 167 parts, all individually hand-finished—a feat that took 530 hours to complete.

The Excalibur Backlight is fitted with a rubber strap and a double-folding white gold clasp. Given how much time it takes to manufacture just one of these watches, it’s understandable that the company only produced 28 of them.

Excalibur The Nights of the Round Table

Talking about a statement piece! Inspired by King Arthur’s Nights of the Round Table, this exquisite 45mm watch sports 12 three-dimensional “figures” cast in rose gold and a table reinterpreted in enamel and pink gold blocks. The automatic self-winding caliber, certified by the Poinçon de Genève, offers 48 hours of power reserve and is comprised of 172 components. The watch comes with a black alligator strap with an 18-carat pink gold clasp.

Excalibur Pirelli

The result of Roger Dubuis’s partnership with Italian tire manufacturer Pirelli is this incredibly cool watch. It is fitted with a strap that features rubber inlays from Pirelli tires used to compete in professional motorsport races. The 45mm skeleton case has rhodium-plated indexes and houses the automatic skeleton caliber that took 530 hours to make.

Excalibur 36 Astral Skeleton with Flying Tourbillon

This striking timepiece runs thanks to Roger Dubuis’ signature skeleton flying tourbillon movement—one of the most complicated calibers in Haute Horlogerie that provides 60 hours of power reserve and consists of 179 components. The 36mm case has a pink gold-plated flange set with ten round diamonds as well as 18-carat gold hour and minute hands. The watch comes fitted with a matching 18-carat pink gold strap as well as a spare grey alligator one.

Ladies, this dazzling timepiece will definitely add oomph to your next formal outing. The 36mm white gold case is entirely paved with baguette-cut and cushion-cut diamonds for a total of 13.04 karats. It runs via a self-winding mechanical caliber that offers 48 hours of power reserve.

The black satin-finished strap features a folding clasp set with even more baguette-cut diamonds.
