Roger Dubuis Hommage H37 5739 Window Perpetual Calendar
Roger Dubuis today has very little to do with the watchmaker himself but when he created the Hommage collection, you see a genuine reflection of the man himself.
The H37 Window Perpetual Calendar presented today is one of the earlier pieces created by the legendary watchmaker, before Roger Dubuis became a Richemont owned brand name in 2008. Around the year 2000 Roger Dubuis produced only 28 of these watches. For each variant in the series, there were no more than 28 made.
The white gold case is very distinct with its polished, concave bezel and polished lugs. The beauty and complexity of the movement is revealed through an engraved sapphire case-back, powered by the calibre RD5739.
The dial is bright white lacquered and contrast well with the perpetual calendar. This Roger Dubuis Hommage Perpetual Calendar Window H37 has a date indication between 4 and 5. A moon phase indicator between 7 and 8. At 12, the day of the week and the month indication and between 2 and 3 a window year indicator.
In watchmaking, "perpetual calendar" describes a calendar mechanism that correctly displays the date on the watch 'perpetually', taking into account the different lengths of the months as well as leap years
The years are indicated with a window color indicator divided in 4 colors. Red is the leap year, yellow is the first year, green the second and blue the third year. The watch is very easy to set, there are 3 pushers on the case to sync the perpetual calendar.
The watch bears the Seal of Geneva and was regulated by Roger Dubuis himself. At the time of production, it was mainly Patek Philippe movements that carried the Seal of Geneva. That is why Mr Dubuis felt it was crucial to have the same hallmark.
The watch comes with its original box and manual. It has been fitted by a custom made grey strap to contrast well with the dial.
