Roger Dubuis teams up with the Bobsleigh Federation of Russia

Unification of precision and performance

The Geneva based Haute-Horlogerie Maison, Roger Dubuis and the Russian Bobsleigh Federation held a press conference at the Park Hyatt Ararat Moscow to announce their new partnership. The two partners gathered to celebrate their shared values, precision and commitment to performance, over the coming years.

After many successful years within Russia, Roger Dubuis naturally accepted this new partnership with the Bobsleigh Federation of Russia. Both partners are not only driven by passion, but also by their mutual respect of key traditions in their fields including groundbreaking innovation and defining new boundaries.

As of today, the promising Russian Bobsleigh and Skeleton teams will receive the support of Roger Dubuis, which has for many years established itself at the top of Haute-Horlogerie, combining innovation and excellence. The Genevan Maison, well-known for its audacious designs and contemporary approach of fine watchmaking, stands out by being the only brand to certify 100% of its timepieces with the precious Hallmark of Geneva. This unique certification, dedicated to preserving the quality and respect of the tradition, not only guarantees the performance of each timepiece but also the individual finishing of every single component.

Like Roger Dubuis, the Bobsleigh Federation of Russia is in a constant quest for high performance and excellence. According to the promising results already achieved from the national teams in the Bobsleigh and Skeleton World Cup, both partners are convinced that this partnership will lead them to golden success. The four-man bobsleigh team has already secured four key victories in a row, predicting many wins at future competitions. One man will have to be closely followed: Aleksander Zubkov, whose team is now leading with a perfect season thus far.

“We are very happy and excited to get such an amazing watch brand like Roger Dubuis on board as an official partner and I’m sure this cooperation will have positive influence on our teams. As you might have seen already, the Russian Bobsleigh team is having great success this year. We have received amazing results since the beginning of the season, getting the gold medals four times in a row in the World Cup for four-man category and I believe we will keep this leading position.” said Mr Bedzhamov, President of the Bobsleigh federation of Russia.

“We are very delighted to support the very promising Russian Bobsleigh and Skeleton teams in their endeavors. Like in Haute-Horlogerie, Bobsleigh is synonymous of precision and performance. In this sport, like in the world of fine watchmaking, there is no room for compromises. We share these values with Mr Bedzhamov’s team and we didn’t hesitate for a second to join this partnership, which I’m sure will lead us to gold...” added Jean-Marc Pontroué, CEO of Roger Dubuis.
