Roger Dubuis has once again demonstrated its amazing ability to interpret the essence of mechanical clocks. This rose gold Hommage Minute Repeater Tourbillon Automatic three-question tourbillon automatic winding watch carries extraordinary mechanical Complexity and the sophisticated sense of innovative aesthetics stand out as a unique alternative. As the world’s first show, the appearance of this timepiece in the 2014 Watch and Miracle-Asia’s Advanced Watch and Clock Fair (WATCHES & WONDERS2014) is bound to become the focus of attention.
The perfect and harmonious complex movement of the Hommage series is a new high in the complexity and exquisite quality of high-end watches. The movement of the Hommage Minute Repeater Tourbillon Automatic is a two-piece automatic movement called Roger Dubuis. The key technology of Jedubi’s representative feature: equipped with an automatic winding mechanism of an exclusive dual micro-rotor (especially a beautiful rose gold hand-engraved version) to ensure the best winding performance and aesthetic effects; one set in a new frame In the flying tourbillon, the excellent guarantee for inertial operation, balance ability and seismic protection is achieved. Like every timepiece created by the watch factory, this watch is also engraved with the Geneva mark, symbolizing the highest quality. The manufacturing process of this watch takes 1,241 hours, of which 328 hours are devoted to meeting the strict standards of the Geneva Seal, which shows that Roger Dubuis attaches great importance to this quality mark.
The creation of fascinating auditory, visual and tactile clocks originated in an era where electric lamps and fluorescent scales had not yet been invented, so chronograph watches were produced, which are convenient for people to distinguish time in the dark by tapping. The minute repeater mechanism can produce three different sounds: the hourly sound is relatively low, the minutely sound is relatively high, and the quarterly sound is achieved by alternating high and low. In today’s high-tech era, this remarkable and highly complex function obviously no longer serves its original purpose. It symbolizes the romantic poetry and wonderful feelings of mechanical timing, and brings together the sense of hearing, sight and even the sense of pleasure.

The Repeater Tourbillon Automatic watch uses a specially designed rectangular gong instead of a regular round gong. It combines new mechanics and novel materials to improve the sound quality of the time. As far as the auditory effect is concerned, the research and development of the centrifugal force percussion dissipator guarantees the best stability and speed of the chime sound, and it emits slender, clear and pleasant notes without any noise. According to Mr. Gregory Bruttin, the director of R & D and watchmaking department: This technical characteristic is like a skater, spreading his hands to produce a wider axis of rotation and slowly turning. When he tightens his arms close to the body, he has a smaller , You can rotate it quickly and dazzlingly.
In terms of visual effects, the Hommage Minute Repeater Tourbillon Automatic is equipped with all the outstanding features of the Hommage series. The appearance design is reflected in: leaf-shaped hands, guilloché sun pattern, Roman numerals, sunken type Bezel and enlarged inner ring, limited edition numbers engraved on the case back, mirror polished and satin-finished finish on the ring and lugs. From the movement point of view, the characteristics of the Hommage series appear in the multi-level movement design, and create interesting three-dimensional effects. This wonderful minute repeater movement is not completely covered by the dial, so when the timekeeping mechanism is activated, people can clearly see the complete process of the gong struck and related components. In addition, people can also appreciate the asymmetrical effect unique to this RD104 movement through the sapphire crystal lens on the case back. It looks like the special beauty of the natural and delicate unevenness of the human face, which is exceptional.
Roger Dubuis provides connoisseurs with a mechanical world full of aesthetic interest. The case, lugs and crown exude warm rose gold light, and the plating of the center of the dial and the edge of the main plate of the self-made RD104 movement. The effects complement each other. The rose gold hue is ingeniously matched with the hand-applied Roman numerals on the minute circle scale, the brand logo and the bright gray of the tourbillon, creating an elegant and charming visual contrast, perfectly set off the minute repeater mechanism visible in perspective. The dial also uses rich layers and various decorative techniques-from the unique hand-engraved sun pattern in the center of the dial (this pattern is also reflected on the two miniature rotors visible on the back) to the satin on the scale circle The surface round grain and the grain round grain on the main plate of the movement are both rich relief effects, deep feeling and texture at this time. While creating various changes and contrasts, it also improves the ease of reading. Degree and aesthetic effect.
The good touch of the watch wearer has also attracted much attention: the toothed crown helps facilitate the grasping; the difference between the satin brushed ring and the polished finish of the bezel is called the Hommage series. One of the signature features; choose to use traditional spring-loaded slides-instead of using the button device commonly used today to ensure waterproof performance-to activate the timekeeping mechanism, not only to prevent the case from sinking, achieving a soft appearance and touch At the same time, this method can also effectively ensure the dust and water resistance of the movement. Achieve the top of the world
