The brand that ‘dares to be rare’ gears up for the 2018 launch of two …
From 2018 onwards, Roger Dubuis enjoys a particularly high-profile on-track presence as one of the main sponsors of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo: the legendary Lamborghini one-make series. A wild beast capable of extreme performances: the brand-new Huracán Super Trofeo EVO is attired in an all-new carbon fibre body kit developed with Dallara, one of the most influential Italian firms on the worldwide motorsport scene.
I also need to call out this, for all the airy-ness of the plan, it still comes in at a rather hefty 13.75mm thick – guess all those gears have to hide somewhere (hint: it is vertically). That aside, for people who want to have an wonderful piece of timekeeping architecture on their wrist, the 20-piece variant of the Roger Dubuis Exalibur Spider Americas Edition is available at their New York boutique at a price of $167,500, at Roger Dubuis 545 Madison Avenue, New York. So this is something fresh from Roger Dubuis, and it is not just a very impressive looking pocket watch, but also something which the Swiss luxury watch brand expects will be a new tradition for them. Known simply because the Roger Dubuis Hommage Millesime pocket view, this merchandise is a one-of-a-kind creation based on a challenging restoration project of a classic pocket watch movement. In reality, “millesime” in French only means “vintage.” Roger Dubuis has announced that they’ll create one such piece unique “restored classic” watch each year and that those items will soon be available for sale only in Roger Dubuis brand stalls around the world. That seems like a pretty decent method of getting folks in stores, or at least the stores that have these products. This Roger Dubuis Hommage Millesime will reside at the forthcoming Roger Dubuis brand boutique in Geneva, scheduled to open in July of 2015. As the first of its type, the Roger Dubuis Hommage Millesime needs to garner a lot of attention if Roger Dubuis would be to warrant the new group. Though the price for the Roger Dubuis Hommage Millesime won’t be what folks consider inexpensive, it did require massive quantities of time and effort for just 1 object.According to Roger Dubuis, Mr. Roger Dubuis himself gifted a vintage pocket watch movement to the firm for them to animate and flip in the Roger Dubuis Hommage Millesime. It would be a bit unfair for the motion within this pocket watch to be recognized only as something which was restored and decorated. Roger Dubuis claims to have added several features to the movement as well. They predict the motion the Roger Dubuis grade RD181, and aren’t particularly open with who made it in the first place or what year the motion was created. I know that Roger Dubuis would like to maintain focus on itself and its accomplishments, however when they mention time and time again that the motion was subject to a comprehensive restoration job it’s almost unfair to those interested parties to neglect mentioning anything associated with the history of the motion or its origins.
The 2018 racing season of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo officially started on February 2-3 at Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi. This first round of the Middle East series precedes, by a few months, the start of the three continental series Europe, Asia and North America.
