SIHH is the perfect time of the year to plan a neat luxurious shopping list. And if you had plans to add a Roger Dubuis watch to your collection of accessories, then checkout the new Velvet ladies collection. The highlight of the collection is stunning 18-carat pink gold timepiece which is encrusted with 66 diamonds totalling to about 1.33 carats. The watch sports a 36 mm dial and runs on the RD821 calibre self-winding mechanical movement.
The dial comes with Roman numerals which seem to hover between the “central barrel and the circle, creating a trompe l’œil on two levels”. The brushed centrepiece at the front bears the ROGER DUBUIS name with a brushed sunray effect. The 6 and 12 hour markers are set in pink gold. Finish with a curved crystal that covers the dial, the watch sports an “aura of light” bracelet done up with 196 diamonds” that amounts about to 1.65 carats. The attachments, also set with diamonds, extend onto the bracelet; recalling the central horn that is a fundamental part of the brand’s design code, here they become a subtle element in the design.
