Saddened By The Loss Of Great Watchmaker and Disruptive Designer Roger Dubuis

 |  October 27th, 2017

It was just about two weeks ago that it was announced that, just shy of 80, Roger Dubuis has passed away.

 |  September 14th, 2015

A number of things make Roger Dubuis an exciting brand to follow. For starters, every timepiece the brand manufactures carries the 100% Poinçon de Genève.
