ROGER DUBUIS QUATUOR

Written by K. Amanuel

 

Roger Dubuis introduced the “Quatuor” at SIHH 2013. The Roger Dubuis Quatuor comes in limited edition of two models. One model is the 18k red gold and comes in limited 88 pieces, while the silicon model comes in just three pieces. The red gold model is retailed around 350k Swiss Francs, while the extremely light silicon model is retailed around 1 million Swiss Francs.

 

 

The Roger Dubuis Quatuor comes in a thick 48 millimeter wide Roger Dubuis Excalibur case. The case houses caliber RD101 movement, which is designed by Roger Dubuis designer Gregory Bruttin. This complex movement has 600 parts and took many hours to assemble. The movement’s balances are paired (2 x 2) and positioned at 90 degree angles to one another and linked by differentials. Working in pairs, the escapements allow for immediate compensation for the rate variations due to changes in position. The balance add up to 16 oscillations per second.
