To mark its 20th anniversary, Manufacture Roger Dubuis is re-launching a unique restoration project entirely dedicated to its Hommage collection: Millésime. As the name suggests, it will mark each year with a special “vintage” in the shape of just one creation embodying a wealth of restoration work.

These models will be available exclusively from Roger Dubuis boutiques and related to boutique openings representing milestone events in the life of the Manufacture’s distribution network.

Within this significant undertaking, a series of antique movement blanks will be restored using ancestral crafts and upgraded to meet 21st century Poinçon de Genéve specifications as part of an exceptional series of limited editions.

Each will incorporate a perpetual calendar, either alone or accompanied by one or more of the other three most sophisticated horological complications.

“My character has been forged through restoration. What could be more moving and uplifting than to walk in the footsteps of these watchmakers from anotherera? I have always felt immense admiration and profound respect for their work, their conscientious discipline and their superior intelligence. The overriding purpose has always been to ensure that all of us who are true devotees of fine mechanisms may continue to enjoy these masterpieces – whether new or historical creations – and pass them on in turn." Roger Dubuis

Exclusively available in Roger Dubuis boutiques and launched to salute the opening of a flagship store, one of these restoration Millésime models will be produced per year and will therefore become an annual highlight eagerly anticipated by connoisseurs and collectors.

The common theme running through these exceptional restoration pieces is that all will bear the prized Poinçon de Genéve and comprise a perpetual calendar, either on its own, or along with another of the other three major horological complications (minute repeater, tourbillon or chronograph).
