Hommage, Tribute to the Minute Repeater
Tribute to the Minute Repeater
This major complication, produced in a limited series of 8 pieces, embodies all the values that characterise the brand: personality, excellence and technical expertise. Its requirements, both in mechanics and design, impose demanding new manufacturing standards. Combining high tech solutions with traditional watchmaking skills, the piece calls for the manual dexterity and know-how of the finest craftsmen.
The subtly daring form of its 45 mm case and the simplicity of its design are a celebration of symmetry. The pink gold case is a statement of elegance while its openwork dial displays the purity of its movement and the beauty of its flying tourbillon positioned at 5:30.
The elusive concept of time is captured in the intricacy of its mechanism and the nobility of its materials. Its calibre RD808, an automatic mechanical movement with a double micro-rotor in platinum, incorporates a minute repeater with a centrifugal sound diffuser. The beauty of the watch delights the eye and lifts the spirits as the time is displayed on an anthracite grey ring. This exclusive, intimate watch offers a perfect world of elegantly mastered time, and its authenticity is guaranteed by the demanding requirements of the Geneva Seal.
A new chapter in the story
Like the minute repeater model, the Tribute collection forms a hyphen between past, present and future. It tells the compelling story of the brand moving from one discovery to the next, from one technical achievement to another, a brand where constantly trying the impossible leads to avant-garde discoveries. How has the brand maintained its inventiveness and passion for beauty since 1995? The Tribute collection provides the answer in models that combine sublime mechanisms with perfection of style, true to the spirit of Mr. Roger Dubuis who is committed to pursuing his creative challenges well into the future.
