Famous friends of Roger Dubuis brightened the Geneva watchmaker’s stand with their presence throughout the recent Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie in Geneva.
For three days, Gerard Butler, Daphne Guinness and Tomer Sisley were the manufacture’s special guests, invited through a gateway into a fantasia lorded over by a giant eagle, the emblem of the city of Geneva and the symbol of the Poinçon de Genève. Welcomed by CEO Jean-Marc Pontroué,they were given a preview of the new timepieces for 2013 against the backdrop of the Excalibur legend.
The Geneva watchmaker took advantage of this year’s theme, Excalibur, to create a decor inspired by the chivalric code, a world of expertise and the mastery of power. Thus, sheltered under the wing of an immense eagle, horologists and guests of the brand were introduced to the major innovation of 2013: the Excalibur Quatuor – more on that extraordinary timepiece in due time!
