At the upcoming SIHH 2016, Roger Dubuis is preparing to unveil an array of women’s Velvet timepieces. It looks like the next year will be the year of women’s timepieces and Roger Dubuis has definitely recognized this trend.
The first feminine novelty is the 36mm Velvet Secret Heart Watch that offers a double retrograde date function which is a perfect match for the timepiece’s tonneau gold case shape since it follows the symmetry of the blue dial. Two rows of sparkling diamonds rim the bezel and the inner bezel ring, thus surrounding two arcs of a circle bearing the Arabic date numerals that in turn round Roman numerals and the classic tonneau-shaped center of the Velvet.
As you can see at the image above, there is also a red crescent-tipped hand which indicates the date. When one hand reaches the bottom of its column, it jumps up and than disappears whereas the second hand pops out at the top of the other column to start over. This exquisite women’s watch is powered with an entirely new caliber RD821B automatic movement. The Velvet Secret Heart Watch will be issued in the ultra limited series of only 8 pieces.
The second novelty in Roger Dubuis Velvet Collection is Blossom Velvet Pink Watch which combines a soft, floral exterior with the sharp mischief of the Diva’s inner beauty. This exceptional timepiece is also housed in an elegant case with the diameter of 36mm. The feminine case is crafted from pink gold and incorporates two rows of brilliant-cut diamonds encrusting the bezel and the lugs, thus transforming the Velvet’s classic central “third lug” into a precious link.
These sparkling diamonds nicely round the split-level mother-of-pearl dial of the new Blossom Velvet timepiece which has been graced with an engraved and sculpted floral marquetry motif.
Inside the beautiful case and beneath the vibrant dial lies caliber RD821 mechanical self-winding movement which promises up to 48 hours of power reserve. The impeccable mechanism bears the iconic Poinçon de Genève quality hallmark.
The last, but not the least, the watch comes with a blushing pink satin strap which goes perfectly with the stunning dial. The gorgeous strap will keep the watch secured to the wrist with a pink gold adjustable folding buckle set with brilliant-cut diamonds.
The new Blossom Velvet Pink Watch comes with 154 sparkling diamonds (weighing approximately 1.9 carats).
