Roger Dubuis & the Poinçon de Genève

For Roger Dubuis, the Hallmark of Geneva is not an end in itself, but rather a starting point in its quest for excellence.

Haute Horlogerie perfection

Since celebrating its 125th anniversary in 2011, the Poinçon de Genève certifies timepieces as a whole according to criteria relating to watch exteriors and performance. Roger Dubuis notably devotes 40% longer production times to ensuring that all its Poinçon de Genève timepieces are worthy to bear this guarantee of exclusivity, origin, know-how, performance and durability. Learn more below about these exceptional characteristics.

Guarantee of origin

Official guarantee that the watch’s mechanical movement has been assembled, cased up and adjusted in the Canton of Geneva.

Guarantee of exclusivity

Of the 20 million watches produced in Switzerland each year, only 24,000 bear the Hallmark of Geneva.

Guarantee of performance

Once assembled, each watch is individually tested and certified in order to guarantee its smooth running, its water resistance and its precision.

Guarantee of durability

The finishing performed on the movement parts strongly reduces friction and ensures exceptional durability. The techniques and materials that are used guarantee the movement a virtually unlimited lifespan.

Guarantee of know-how

Each component of each section of the movement is individually finished and decorated by hand in keeping with the hand-crafted traditional know-how cultivated in Geneva. A movement bearing the Hallmark of Geneva requires an additional 30 to 40% extra work.

About Complication

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.
