Roger Dubuis introduces a sizzling on-trend range of straps, dials and gems designed to suit every occasion as endless as the ever-spinning circle of time. Color transforms, conveys and defines a blend of personality, preferences and attitudes. Red for strength, health and vitality; yellow for happiness and imagination; beige for earthy chic; blue for serenity and caring; or simply an explosion of the rich purply pink Radiant Orchid Pantone Color of the Year 2014. The potential interpretations of this up-to-the-minute theme are as infinitely varied as the countless facets of fashion.
From the coldest nights of winter to the hottest summer days, Roger Dubuis is right up there with this year’s best looks and color trends, from soft and subtle to popping and powerful, from pastel shades to primary tones. Introducing the PANTONE Spring 2014 Fashion Color Report, Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, stated: “This season, consumers are looking for a state of thoughtful, emotional and artistic equilibrium. While this need for stability is reflected in the composition of the palette, the inherent versatility of the individual colors allows for experimentation with new looks and color combinations.” Emotions and artistic equilibrium are indeed cornerstones of life according to Roger Dubuis.
At the forefront of the contemporary Haute Horlogerie scene since 1995, the brand’s audacious and unconventional models, rich in conceptual creativity and mechanical detail and firmly anchored in the 21st century, embody the savoir-faire and expertise of the finest mechanisms. Color is a natural theme for the Manufacture Roger Dubuis, which sees it as an ideal means of expressing its own vibrant, upbeat and unconventional personality – and even more importantly that of its wearers. The palette of interpretations includes shimmering satin straps and statement gemstones in the Velvet collection, as well as multi-hued glossy leather straps and even a cobalt blue dial (another hot trend in 2014!) in the Excalibur 42 collection.
