Roger Dubuis

Plaza Watch International - - Sihh Special -

What is a last­ing mem­ory from any of the last 25 years of the SIHH?

I will al­ways re­mem­ber the stunned look in the eyes of our guests and vis­i­tors at the SIHH 2013. 2013 is the year we cel­e­brated Ex­cal­ibur with an in­cred­i­ble Roger Dubuis World: a 5-me­tre wide Golden Ea­gle, the sym­bol of Geneva and the Poinçon de Genève (Seal of Geneva). I be­lieve this im­pres­sive demon­stra­tion of our brand the­atrics will re­main a high­light of the SIHH for many years… or maybe only un­til this Jan­uary, as we are com­ing back with a new in­cred­i­ble Roger Dubuis World which will once again sur­prise vis­i­tors!

What is your favourite watch from any SIHH and why?

It has to be the Ex­cal­ibur Qu­atuor re­vealed in 2013. Ex­cal­ibur Qu­atuor is the world’s first sil­i­con watch in­cor­po­rat­ing four sprung bal­ances. This ma­jor in­no­va­tion presents the ul­ti­mate chal­lenge in com­pen­sat­ing for grav­ity. The Ex­cal­ibur Qu­atuor sym­bol­ises the me­chan­i­cal magic of our Man­u­fac­ture. It pushes the lim­its in terms of pre­ci­sion and marks one of the ma­jor ad­vances in con­tem­po­rary watch­mak­ing.
