Indore, M.p. India (PressExposure) April 09, 2011 -- The La Monégasque collection by ROGER DUBUIS stands out for the flowing line of its case whose round dial stretches the contours of the bezel to produce a uniquely distinctive form. Audacity and excellence underlie this new collection which incorporates only exceptional mechanical movements that have been designed, developed and produced by Manufacture ROGER DUBUIS.
Produced as a limited edition of just 88, this Chronograph La Monégasque Big Number stands apart for its dial in the classic casino colours of black, red and green. Elegant and refined, this rose gold model deals a winning hand of a subtle design and a fascinating mechanism. The dial, which contrasts a satin sunburst centre with a circular satin exterior, incorporates a 30-minute counter at 3 o'clock and small seconds at 9 o'clock, giving it the elegance and appeal of the traditional chronograph.
Its stylish 44mm rose gold case is highlighted by a black PVD-coated titanium bezel. Water-resistant to 5 bar (50 metres), it contains the new RD680 self-winding chronograph movement. Designed, developed and produced by Manufacture ROGER DUBUIS, the RD680 chronograph calibre represents
the new generation of mechanical movements at ROGER DUBUIS, matching beauty with performance and building on cutting-edge production technology. This self-winding column-wheel chronograph movement with micro-rotor, characteristic of ROGER DUBUIS, has a 48-hour power reserve and a frequency of 4Hz (28,800 vibrations/hour). Incorporating the signature features of ROGER DUBUIS movements, such as the shape of the bridges, springs and levers, this new Fine Watch movement will give rise to a new family of calibres that fully respect the aesthetic of the brand and the exacting standards of the Poinçon de Genève. This rhodium-plated and decorated RD680 self-winding chronograph calibre comprises 261 components and provides hour and minute functions, small seconds at 9 o'clock, a central chronograph hand, and 30-minute chronograph counter at 3 o'clock.
The Chronograph La Monégasque Big Number is presented on a hand-stitched black alligator strap with a rose gold pin buckle.
