Roger Dubuis has been at the forefront of contemporary Haute Horlogerie since 1995. The Brand continues to be extravagant while combining the traditional art of fine watchmaking. Roger Dubuis skeleton watches reflect transparency which is it’s of Key Value.
The Brand lives by the motto NO RULES, OUR GAME and this motto makes it a daring brand while well trenched in the art of fine watchmaking. Especially with the highest complication of Tourbillons, which is a part of the brand DNA.
We were fortunate to catch up with Nicola Andreatta, CEO, Roger Dubuis in a virtual conversation.
It was a wonderful experience traveling to the digital Roger Dubuis Booth at Watches & Wonders 2021. We were also able to discover Hyper Horology with their latest launch of the new Excalibur Single Flying Tourbillon.
Below are the Excerpts from the Interview:
Has the meaning of Luxury changed for Roger Dubuis customers during Covid-19?
I believe the desire to own luxury watches has not changed. You Live to Die, – Luxury customers should believe in this LATIN PROVERB: MEMENTO MORI and CARPE DIEM in order to enjoy indulging in Luxury products. I believe in the saying that we will all die someday. Therefore, I have realized that those who choose to live with this moto, and are willing to indulge in luxury, experience everything to the fullest, including luxury. The meaning of luxury has not changed but the desire to experience it has only grown.
