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 check out the new Velvet ladies collection. The collection’s highlight is a stunning 18-carat pink gold timepiece encrusted with 66 diamonds totaling about 1.33 carats. The watch sports a 36 mm dial and runs on the RD821 caliber 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 centerpiece 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 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.
