This watch is considered by many Roger Dubuis collectors to be a grail. At 40mm, it has an incredible presence on the wrist further accentuated by the white enamel dial. The movement used is a new-old-stock Tavannes pocket watch movement that was produced in the 1940s and heavily modified by Roger Dubuis for the present watch. It doesn’t get much better than this for a manual-wind, three-hand watch.
