Baroque Time - Roger Dubuis High Jewelry Velvet

This watch features 304 diamonds that are precisely measured and custom cut in the baguette style. The case consists of an eye popping 138 baguettes cut in 24 different sizes, and totaling 7.5 carats.

The rest of the watch, including the dial, bezel and lugs are decorated with 136 additional baguettes in 50 different sizes and totally 5.20 carats, for a grand total of 13.61 carats.

The gems are set invisible-style, a laborious, exacting process that requires each stone to be individually grooved at the pavilion before being set into a grid of gold wire to exacting tolerances so that each diamond rests at precisely the same level.

Naturally the labor-intensiveness of the manufacturing of this watch means there are only 28 pieces available. The case is 18k white gold, and the strap is a black satin-finished fabric.

The watch is also available in a spectacular version with a fully set bracelet, with a total of 1,300 diamonds (just over 9 carats). And there’s more: a rose gold version with 82 round brilliant diamonds totaling 1.60 carats on the bezel, lugs and bracelet links, and another set with amethysts and black spinels on a DLC coated case, all with those signature gracefully elongated Roman numerals. This is watchmaking art at its pinnacle.
