Roger Dubuis let the design take the lead with the Velvet, its famous watch collection for ladies. With its unusual shaped case, full of intricate details, is the Velvet not easy to craft, but certainly worth the effort, as it results in one of the most original ladies watches currently available, combining exquisite craftsmanship, eye for detail as well as a superb movement, all in an original design. Made in a vast variety of examples, they all share the same basic shape of the case, but Roger Dubuis made subtle differences that give each member of the Velvet collection its own personality. The here offered reference 86770 is a precious specimen realized in fully 18k white gold. The oval shape with massive curved lugs is preserved in incredible conditions and has been embellished with a diamond-set bezel that weaves with a solid white gold bracelet with internal chain decoration that recalls the diamonds-set decoration of the bezel. The two tone silvered dial shows a glamorous roman-numerals layout with applied grey VI and XII while rest are in black. Offered with its original orange box, this very watch is powered by an automatic movement.
