Chinese martial artist Donnie Yen & his Roger Dubuis

Hong Kong actor, martial artist, film director and producer, Donnie Yen and his wife Cecilia Wang attended the 31st Hong Kong Film Awards (HKFA) ceremony held at the Hong Kong Cultural Center in Hong Kong, April 15, 2012.
The annual Hong Kong Film Awards ceremony recognizes achievements in all aspects of filmmaking. It is the Hong Kong equivalent to the American Oscars and the British BAFTAS. And Yen is nominated for the Best Action Choreography award for his role in the film "Wu Xia". Donnie Yen attended the event while wearing a ROGER DUBUIS Flying Tourbillon La Monegasque (Limited Edition) in Platinum.
This exceptional piece is destined for just 28 connoisseurs worldwide in this limited edition. In its 44-millimetre case, water-resistant to 5 bars (50 metres), the calibre RD540 with its 293 components is the crowning glory of a masterpiece of high-flying mechanical skill. It makes light of the effects of gravity, at the same time providing perfect legibility of its large date and power reserve displays; technology serving ease and elegance.
A creation of unique ingenuity, at the limits of the mechanically feasible. Executed in platinum, the most discreet of metals, the Monégasque Tourbillon Volant opens the door to a new dynasty of exceptional timepieces. It allies the most iconic watchmaking complication, the flying tourbillon, with the highly individual aspect of a movement made, decorated and polished by hand. The Monégasque: a hint of rock ’n’ roll and sexappeal, with a delightfully provocative flavour.
It evokes the whole myth of Monte Carlo, with that unconventional and (very) chic something that casts every mischievous free spirit under its spell. Time flows languidly on the wrist: daring design, contemporary lines and an unusual and original shape drawing out a perfect circle. Detail takes precedence over effects. The collection lays claim to a concept of style rather than fashion, discreetly elegant with unconventional outlines.
