Floral Wonders

Roger Dubuis turns the spotlight on women, proudly proclaiming 2016 the Year of the Velvet Diva and introduces Blossom Velvet Pink and Blossom Velvet Blue, multi-petal expressions of ageless sensuality, while three one-of-a-kind and even more elaborate interpretations – assembled as an exquisite set nestling in a superbly crafted marquetry-worked box – compose a dainty ‘trilogy bouquet’ reserved exclusively for Roger Dubuis boutiques.

The 36mm case of the Blossom Velvet Pink and Blossom Velvet Blue – respectively crafted in pink or white gold – is rimmed with two rows of brilliant-cut diamonds adorning the bezel and lugs, transforming the Velvet’s classic central “third lug” into a precious link. These sparkling gems surround the characteristic split-level mother-of-pearl dial graced with an engraved and sculpted floral marquetry motif. The signature Velvet central tonneau or barrel shape – contributing to its trompe l’oeil effect and swept over by the hours and minutes hands – is delicately accentuated by diamonds.
