This exceptional pocket watch had its origin in 2001. Six years earlier Roger Dubuis had started the watch house bearing his name and in 2001 he came across a number of movement blanks. His plan was to upgrade the basic movements to Poinçon de Genève level. The first movement to emerge from the restoration project was a calibre RD60 and it sold for one million Swiss francs. Today, twenty years after the establishment of watch house Roger Dubuis, the remaining movement blanks will be used to not only celebrate the birthday of the watch house, but also that of the traditional values of the watchmaking profession.
