Roger Dubuis is a master in the art of creating complicated masterpieces, and if for many, less is more, for the contemporary Swiss brand, more is always more, and it is with this intention that they produce unique movements.
One of his latest creations is the Monovertex Split Seconds Chronograph.
Outside, the new chronograph is presented in a 47mm case in composite mineral fibre in shades of red with a bezel and pusher at 2 o’clock in gold, which is attached to a biomaterial strap in shades of black and red.
It is on the skeletonized dial that we can see the complex chronograph, which features a central minute and hour hands in addition to two split seconds chronograph hands, one in skeletonized red that makes the second one in white transparent.
At three o’clock a minute counter operates a tripartite hand at an angle of 120º while on the opposite side operates a tourbillon that rotates 360º continuously and whose function is to eliminate the effect of gravity in all directions.
It should also be noted that in a watch where every detail counts, the number 88 is drawn on the tachymeter scale and represents Roger Dubuis’s lucky number.
Finally, at the heart of the RD Monovertex Split Seconds Chronograph lives the Caliber RD114, a double column wheel chronograph.
