History of Roger Dubuis
Roger Dubuis, the company, was founded in 1995 by Roger Dubuis, a gifted master watchmaker, and Carlos Dias, a businessman and talented designer. The year marked the launch of their first collections. By 1999 Roger Dubuis designed and manufactured its first in-house movements, all bearing the prestigious Poinçon de Genève.
The year 2001 marked the build of the impressive Manufacture on the outskirts of Geneva, in Meyrin. The Manufacture is a striking building featuring glass walls housing state-of-the-art watchmaking facilities inside. The iconic Excalibur collection was launched in 2005, featuring an exclusive double tourbillon skeleton movement (RD01SQ). By 2006 the brand had developed 28 proprietary calibers, all with the Poincon de Genève (Geneva Seal).
2008 marked a new chapter in Roger Dubuis’s history, as it was acquired in part by the Richemont group. The Richemont Group purchased 60% of the company, and in 2016, the remaining 40%.
Today, Roger Dubuis is a fully integrated Manufacture that specializes in innovation and creativity. Their limited edition collections feature High Complications encased in groundbreaking choice of materials, with 33 exclusive in-house mechanical calibers developed since the brand’s creation. One of the pioneers in skeletonization, Roger Dubuis, is an important player in Hyper Horology.
