Roger Dubuis Hommage Chronograph H40 56
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 H40 Chronograph 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 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 RD56 that is based on the Lemania 2310, like the Patek Philippe 5070 or even like the Vacheron Constantin 47101.
The dial is not something you see everyday. Roger Dubuis called it "Bouchonné" or you may know it as "perlage". Circular-graining, also referred to as stippling, spotting or beading and which consists of tiny circles. Mostly seen to decorate a movement but Roger Dubuis used it on some of its dials. hard to capture on a picture but amazing in reality.
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.
This Roger Dubuis Hommage Chronograph H40 is accompanied by a rarely seen handmade ebony Roger Dubuis box. The box itself is a piece of art.
The H40 today are highly collectable and you rarely see one for sale. At the moment of writing, none are for sale.
