Roger Dubuis and Grégory Bruttin
Two generations of master watchmakers devoted to the same ideal
Wisdom does not depend on age, and the same is true of talent, particularly when it is constantly focused on pushing the limits of watchmaking. A perfect example is Gregory Bruttin who is responsible for movement development at Roger Dubuis. This young master watchmaker has an exceptional gift for mechanics and he, and his team, created the Excalibur Quatuor. This dazzling feat promises great things to come for the Manufacture.
After attracting attention at several prestigious Swiss brands, he moved to Roger Dubuis in 2002. He joined one of the most innovative Manufactures of the 21st century, and most importantly, met its founder, master watchmaker Roger Dubuis – a man unanimously admired not only for his virtuoso watchmaking but also for his vision and his non-conformist approach.
Roger Dubuis is a natural builder. He positioned the new brand in 1995 as the only Manufacture to submit all its calibres for the prestigious Geneva Seal certification.
Roger Dubuis and Gregory Bruttin worked closely together for several years, each inspiring the other. In 2006 the younger man took responsibility for the technical office. He became deeply involved in the strategy of movement development and helped to make the prototype workshop an integral part of the brand’s technical management. In 2009 he became responsible for movement development and was named Director of Movement Development in 2011.
Dubuis and Bruttin are both devoted to fostering innovation, talent and excellence. Together, they create a very fertile environment. Jointly expressing the brand’s DNA, they make it easy for the brand to perpetuate its traditions. With the Excalibur Quatuor, the Manufacture is in the happy position of launching a new star into the sky of supreme watchmaking.
