At SIHH the Roger Dubuis booth presented a casino look, consistent with the launch of the new men’s collection La Monégasque. The piece that best represents the high-stakes gambling theme is the limited edition Chronograph Big Number which sports the classic casino colors black, red and green. The 44mm rose gold case recalls the brand’s popular Sympathie line.
Behind the roulette-inspired dial lies the self-winding RD680 movement which has been designed, developed and produced by Manufacture Roger Dubuis. The double-pusher column-wheel chronograph features a central chronograph hand, 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, and small seconds at 9 o’clock. The movement, with 261 parts and 42 jewels, is 6.30mm thick and beats at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vph). The movement is adjusted in five positions and has received the Poinçon de Genève (Geneva Seal).
Produced in a limited edition of 128 pieces, the Chronograph La Monégasque Big Number is priced at SFr.37,000.

The Roger Dubuis RDDBMG0003, the limited edition (128pc’s) version of this model, was made with the RD78 movement, not the RD680 movement.
