The Kimberley Process is an international certification scheme for rough diamonds that aims to avoid the use of "blood diamonds / conflict" by rebel movements to finance their military activities. PK System certification is legally binding, due to its integration into the national legislation in some 80 countries producers, processors and traders, rough diamonds can not be traded between these countries without a Kimberley certificate issued by a government confirming that the diamonds are conflict free. Roger Dubuis gets its supplies only from partners who also respect the system to ensure the legitimacy of our diamonds.
Partnership with the IOSW
The ever-increasing demand for luxury watches translates into a growing demand for qualified craftsmen and women to service these products. To help meeting this demand, the Institute of Swiss Watchmaking was founded in 2008 by Richemont to provide dedicated, career-minded individuals with the education and training to become a part of this exciting profession. The goal is to develop and maintain, on a worldwide basis, a combination of know-how and expertise in the field of high-end watchmaking that will enable the brand to offer its customers high-quality local service. Roger Dubuis's sponsorship to the IOSW is a valuable support to its training policy.
Roger Dubuis uses exotic animal skins for leather bracelets. These are regulated on the international level through the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). The goal of this Convention is to ensure that the international trade of wild animal and plant species does not threaten the survival of the species to which they belong. To do this, a system of permit has been put in place. In order to be exported, imported and re-exported , skins must be accompanied by a permit issued by the competent authority of the country of departure. For Roger Dubuis, this agreement mainly concerns the marketing of watches with alligator straps.
