Roger Dubuis - Hommage Minute Repeater Automatic Tourbillon

| No comment
Manufacture Roger Dubuis celebrates its 20th anniversary with a proof of Haute Horlogerie mastery:
the new Hommage Minute Repeater Automatic Tourbillon. This exclusive timepiece features a minute repeater with centrifugal sound dissipator, a flying tourbillon, and double micro-rotors.

The minute repeater mechanism chimes three different sounds: the hours on a low tone, minutes on a high tone, and quarter hours on alternating high and low tones. Manufacture Roger Dubuis designed gongs in a pretty unusual way with the goal to improve the quality of the chime thanks to a combination of new ergonomics with rectangular rather than the usual round gongs, as well as new materials. The dedicated centrifugal-force striking dissipator optimizes inertia and controls the speed of the chime so as to ensure a long, clear chime that is pleasing to the ear and clean.

The flying tourbillon has a new carriage designed to guarantee optimal inertia, equilibrium and anti-shock protection.

The automatic winding via double hand-guilloché pink gold micro-rotors ensures optimal winding performance while enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the RD104 movement visible through the sapphire crystal case back.

The rose gold case has a diameter of 45mm and alternates the satin-brushed case middle to the broad polished bezel. The striking mechanism is activated via a traditional repeater slide which ensures a better resistance to dust and water than a push button (the case offers water resistance to 30 metres).

The dial is developed on multiple levels and decorated using various techniques, from the sunray hand-guilloché motif in the dial centre (echoed on the two micro-rotors visible through the back), to the circular satin-finish on the chapter ring, and the circular graining on the movement mainplate. The minute repeater is not covered by the dial so providing a clear view of the parts in motion when the striking mechanism is in operation.

Like every single Roger Dubuis timepiece, the Hommage Minute Repeater Automatic Tourbillon bears the Poinçon de Genève to certify its quality and reliability.

Only 20 pieces of the Roger Dubuis Hommage Minute Repeater Automatic Tourbillon will be produced with the limited-edition number engraved on the case side and Mr Roger Dubuis’ signature metalized in a pink gold colour on the case-back.
