As the most beautiful creations, Roger Dubuis watches deserve particular care and attention to preserve their original beauty and their technical precision for future generations.

Mechanical hand-wound and self-winding watches should be wound at least once a month to prevent the oil from drying out. When a watch has stopped after not being worn, we recommend manual winding by turning the crown at least thirty times. An automatic watch should then be worn 10 hours per day to be automatically fully wound. Manual watches should be wound every day at the same time to benefit the maximum power reserve and benefit the best performances. Take care not to force the crown once you feel resistance. Before any contact with water make sure the crown is correctly screwed down or pushed back to prevent water from penetrating the mechanism.
Roger Dubuis timepieces are equipped with security gaskets that guarantee their water resistance. They can deteriorate because of natural ageing, fluctuations, impacts or cosmetics. If condensation appears under the glass of your Roger Dubuis watch, it means that the water resistance is damaged. We recommend having the water-resistance checked every two years by an Authorized Service Center, especially before a period of intensive use such as summer holidays.
Roger Dubuis watches are made to stand up to intensive use. Care must be taken, however, to avoid dropping them or knocking hard objects which might cause damages to the case or/and movement. We advise to store and wear watches and jewelry separately to preserve them from scratches.
Do not use any chemical products since they may damage your watch. If it has been exposed to these, clean it with a soft brush and lukewarm water, then dry it with a microfiber cloth. For paved timepieces, check the stones regularly to ensure they are securely set.
Leather is a natural living material. Contact with water or exposure to high humidity can deform or discolor it. Prolonged exposure to bright sunlight can damage its color and quality. Leather is a permeable material and therefore it can become stained by contact with cosmetics and oily substances. If the strap is deformed, do not put glue on it since it will damage the lug bars and lug screws. We suggest you to replace your leather strap after twelve months.

An automatic timepiece is a mechanical watch set with either an oscillating mass or a micro-rotor which, thanks to the natural wrist movement winds itself mechanically. Therefore, if worn everyday, the timepiece doesn’t need hand winding.
A manual timepiece is a mechanical watch that needs to be hand-wound to function. The several mouvements have a “power reserve” that determine the length of time the watch is able to function with its full wound capacity. Especially appreciated from specialist of “Haute Horlogerie”.
A tourbillon is an addition to the mechanics of a watch escapement. In a tourbillon the escapement and balance wheel are mounted in a rotating cage, in order to negate the effects of gravity when the timepiece (thus the escapement) is stuck in a certain position.
A masterpiece from Roger Dubuis. The achievement of 7 years of research and 40 people included in the production process of the watch. A timepiece working with 4 balance sprung and 5 differentials, for an ultimate precision. A watchmaking achievement that looks for the untouched territories of mechanical accuracy.
The minute repeater is a timepiece that once mechanically pushed, rings the hours, quarters and minutes of the watch. It is an historic complication that is known for the mechanical achievement of making a mechanical timepiece ring.
