Roger Dubuis

In the '80s, Roger Dubuis left Patek Philippe to establish his own workshop, dedicating himself to the restoration of older pieces. In 1995, following a partnership with businessman Carlos Dias, he would establish his own eponymous brand. Dubuis' attempt to rival Patek Philippe themselves became one of the reasons for his acclaim – his pieces channelled the traditional Geneva watchmaking that Patek Philippe embodied with more stylistic flair.
