Roger Dubuis – Pulsion Chronograph

Another new addition to the Roger Dubuis Collection of fabulous timepieces for 2012 is the Pulsion Chrongraph, This piece comes in three styles Black Titanium, Pink Gold and Titanium.

The Chronograph in the new Pulsion Collection from ROGER DUBUIS is in keeping with the image of the world of the Venturer from which it takes its inspiration: technological, powerful and dynamic. The Black Titanium edition (the first of the pulsion chronographs’) is equipped with a black DLC titanium case and a rubber strap, it has been designed for action. A distinguished feature of this collection, the sapphire crystal extends to the flanks of the case and serves as a bezel, while its numerals are engraved under the crystal and impregnated with luminescent material. This piece will be the introduction to the Roger Dubuis Pulsion Chronograph Series.

The Pulsion Chronograph from the Genevan watchmaker ROGER DUBUIS plays the card of total transparency in order to show its technical prowess. With its partially openwork dial that reveals all the workmanship of its exclusive RD680 chronograph movement, it is instantly recognisable thanks to its sapphire crystal screwed directly onto the case. This revolutionary structure enables the Arabic numerals to be engraved under the crystal and to be impregnated with luminescent material.

In addition to this distinguishing feature common to all the models in the Pulsion Collection, the Black Titanium Chronograph is equipped with exceptional technical features. Its dial, constructed in various different levels and with a black exterior surface treated with Geneva ribbing, exhibits complex workmanship, exemplified by the numerals 12 and 6 machined into two mini-circles and screwed onto the surface.

The dynamic character of this timepiece designed for action is also shown by its black DLC titanium case with a 44 mm diameter. With alternating polished and satin-finished surfaces, it has a complex structure that emphasises its elegant power and the force of its design. The mechanical chronograph movement with automatic micro-rotor winding, calibre RD680, represents the new generation of ROGER DUBUIS mechanical movements, combining aesthetic qualities and performance, and based on the most advanced production technology. The RD680 chronograph calibre includes 264 parts and has a power reserve of 48 hours (technichal spec. states 52 hours) for 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz).

The Pulsion Chronograph model is proposed with a black rubber strap featuring polished and satin finishings with a titanium folding buckle. Two models complete this collection, both of which are equipped with the RD680 chronograph movement and house the same case structure and the same polished and satin finishings. The first version is also proposed in titanium and has a light-coloured dial, while the second is presented in a pink gold case with a dark dial.
