The cream of New Delhi's high society were all present as Swiss luxury Maison ROGER DUBUIS unveiled its new and unique La Monegasque range at the Indian capital's premier Leela Palace hotel.
The exclusive event was held in cooperation with renowned purveyor of luxury watch brands, Kapoor Watch Company. This special viewing of ROGER DUBUIS' La Monegasque collection was arranged especially for discerning watch aficionados to enable them to get a detailed preview of the collection, which is available exclusively at Kapoor Watch Company's boutiques in the capital.
The Monegasque collection conjures up an era when refinement was at the essence of the art of living. Everything about it is daring, elegant, individualistic. It is the dazzling rendezvous between glamour and Fine Watchmaking, a marriage that infallibly inspired ROGER DUBUIS. Dedicated to a dream, a lasting tradition and the pursuit of excellence, the Monégasque collection vibrates in harmony with the mythical scene of Monte Carlo. The stylishness of the sports convertibles, the rustle of silk evening dresses, the lapping of the Mediterranean ... a murmur, almost musical, that resonates with the movements, with Fine Watchmaking and with the thousands of operations of a craftsmanship that bears the name ROGER DUBUIS.
La Monegasque is a collection that follows codes rooted in tradition, but then interprets them in contemporary style. Its personality, strength of character and perfectly controlled vigour assert its charisma. With its slim lines, the roundness of the dial drawing out the contours of the bezel, the collection innovates with its unusual and original configuration. It is equipped exclusively with outstanding mechanical movements entirely designed, developed and produced by the ROGER DUBUIS Manufacture. This latest generation of mechanical movements - among them, the RD680 automatic chronograph - matches aesthetic qualities with high performance, and is based on the most specialised production techniques.
Incorporating the signature features of ROGER DUBUIS movements, such as the shape of the bridges, springs and levers, this new Fine Watch movement will give rise to a new family of calibres that fully respect the aesthetic of the brand and the exacting standards of the Poinçon de Genève.
The ROGER DUBUIS Chronograph La Monegasque is presented on a genuine alligator strap with a steel folding buckle. Its case is water-resistant to 5 bar (50 metres).With 42 jewels finely adjusted in five positions, the Chronograph La Monegasque is truly a fascinating piece to celebrate the person that you are.
ROGER DUBUIS watches are designed for individuals, who are a class apart, masters of their destiny and trend-setters in every way. These are creations that typify the ultimate in their class - true masterpieces, all of them and all carrying the prestigious Geneva Seal of ultimate quality.
ROGER DUBUIS' new range seeks to not only reach into new as yet untapped markets, but is designed to build on their successful creations that have made them a brand that stands on its own.
ROGER DUBUIS is more than a Manufacture, more than a watch: it is its own world. An exciting, animated world. A world where creativity reigns supreme, where originality is king and the pursuit of excellence is truly a driving force. A time keeper that is intentionally extravagant and elegant. New worlds will open up fabulous horizons and nurture the history of a young manufacture that loves to innovate as much as it respects the classic idiom of Fine Watchmaking with the precise demands of the Poinçon de Genève. This is what makes ROGER DUBUIS unique.
