Now the WatchTime team has gotten a detailed look at all of the new models, including the headliner watch that was kept under wraps until the show: the Roger Dubuis Hommage Double Flying Tourbillon.

As brand representatives explained at the Roger Dubuis press presentation, the focus this year was on the Hommage collection, the line that best exemplifies classical watchmaking, and the evolution of the first watches introduced by brand founder and namesake Roger Dubuis nearly 20 years ago. The tagline of the Hommage collection is “Incredible Mechanics,” and the Hommage Double Flying Tourbillon represents that as well as a high level of traditional and contemporary decorative arts.

The movement, Caliber RD100, is composed of 452 parts, has a 50-hour power reserve, and, like all of Roger Dubuis’s in-house movements, meets the criteria for the prestigious Geneva Hallmark. Perhaps the most striking aspect of the watch aesthetically is the sunburst guilloche applied directly to the movement’s mainplate, which also serves as the dial. The rose-gold Roman numerals are applied directly to the front of the movement.

We”ll be revealing more shortly about the the Hommage Double Flying Tourbillon and the nine other new Roger Dubuis Hommage references introduced at the show. For now, have a look at some image of this new timepiece and its movement, provided by the brand.
