King Jewelers and Roger Dubuis Expand Their Partnership

Jun 12, 2015
King Jewelers Announces Roger Dubuis Expansion Via Collector’s Dinner at Quality Meats, Miami

Watchmaker Roger Dubuis was in Miami this past week to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the founding of the Geneva-based watchmaking company that bears his name with south Florida’s leading authorized watch dealer, King Jewelers, Aventura.

The renowned watchmaker visited exclusively with King Jewelers watch collectors as they premiered King’s expansion in Miami. He discussed his role as the “soul” of Roger Dubuis within the company today offering advice as he presented some of the world’s finest horology timepieces and his latest collection. Dubuis simply relates that he had decades of experience (much of it with Patek Philippe) before he started his eponymous firm.

“I have two objectives tonight,” said Mr. Dubuis, “To represent the brand, to transmit my knowledge, life-long passion, and craftsmanship to our valued King Jewelers collectors. I enjoy sharing my work with them and love seeing clients wearing my works of art.”

“King Jewelers continues to be the authorized dealer of the finest horology collections in south Florida, including the original boutique in the U.S. Our long standing partnership with Roger Dubuis continues with recent expansion within our 7,500 sq. ft. Miami salon” says Scott King.

Hommage & Velvet

When Roger Dubuis began creating his first design for his then-new company 20 years ago, he immediately wanted to honor all those watchmakers from whom he learned his craft.

“I created Hommage as the first collection of the manufacture to honor all the people along the way who had taught me, given me inspiration and advice.” Dubuis cites Hommage and the firm’s Velvet collection, for the ladies, as two of his favorite recent designs.

“I can say that the Velvet design is one of my favorites because it’s one of the most incredible cases for us. It’s a timepiece that brings much emotion to me in part because of the tonneau/round shape and also because there is much that can be done with the shape. Its proportions are fantastic, it’s very feminine, the geometry of the case in a ladies watch can be constraining, so when a designer comes up with one that works, you have to stop into King Jewelers store and look at it. It means you have succeeded.” -Roger Dubuis

Last year Roger Dubuis re-imagined the earlier Hommage collection with a series of new Hommage timepieces brimming with classic Genevan designs, but also added a modernistic deep guilloche on the dial-side movement of certain models.

The newest addition to the Hommage family, the Hommage Minute Repeater Tourbillon Automatic, serves as the peak of the collection. This week the stunning timepiece was found on the wrist of Jorge Puentes, brand president of Roger Dubuis North America. The watch’s sapphire crystal caseback features Mr. Dubuis’ signature in pink gold. It’s issued in a twenty-piece limited edition to commemorate the firm’s anniversary.

Jono King, Vice President of Sales, King Jewelers, said, “Today Roger Dubuis pioneers contemporary Haute Horlogerie and is perhaps best known for tourbillons and double tourbillons, with skeletonized models at the fore of its most recent designs. And as Dubuis himself demanded from the outset two decades ago, his firm remains 100% certified with the Poinçon de Genève (Geneva Seal).”
