Black Velvet

Roger Dubuis 2016

Women's

Roger Dubuis has claimed this year for women, and presents for women a watch that is as original as it is sensual. This Black Velvet is an unconventional beauty, with its carbon case and dial, and its bezel set with exotic stones… in this instance, Paraiba tourmalines with their vivid turquoise shade. It is also a world first: after last year's pioneering technique to set rubber with gems, this year Roger Dubuis breaks new ground by setting carbon with stones. Like ceramic, which first appeared on men's watches before spilling over into women's timepieces, carbon sheds its masculine overtones and takes possession of feminine wrists. A quantum leap that won't go unnoticed.
