For the 20th anniversary of the Roger Dubuis, there is a project even more special that the Manufacture just launched, the Hommage Millesime replica pocket watch collection, with a modern timepieces case.
This 60mm Hommage Millesime replica pocket watch features no less than a minute repeater, a double retrograde perpetual calendar and a chronograph. As all the future replica pocket watches of this Hommage Millesime project, this unique pocket watch will be based on a calibre gifted by Mr Roger Dubuis himself that was restored using the most authentic artistic crafts and techniques.
The 60mm case of the Roger Dubuis replica pocket watch is made of 18k pink gold and features a convex bezel and contrasting satin-brushed/polished finishes. It is attached to a solid gold chain. The dial here is partially opened, revealing some parts of the perpetual calendar. Several finishing techniques are applied, including heat-blue hands, a sunburst pattern on the gold perpetual calendar plate and guilochage on the month and the moon sub-dials. All the levers visible are of course painstakingly finished, with straight graining on the flat surfaces and polished bevelled angles.
