Is this the worst wipeout ever at Teahupoo?
Niccolo Porcella caught a huge wave, got barreled, and then the powerful cannon swallowed him up.

Roger Dubuis embodies a longstanding commitment to safeguarding and restoring examples of the finest watchmaking traditions, while consistently renewing and re-energising this proud horological heritage
To mark its 20th anniversary, the only watchmaking Manufacture to be 100% Poinçon de Genève certified is re-launching a unique restoration project entirely dedicated to its Hommage collection: Millésime. As the name hints, it will mark each year with a special “vintage” in the shape of just one creation embodying a wealth of restoration work. These models will be available exclusively from Roger Dubuis boutiques and systematically related to boutique openings representing milestone events in the life of the Manufacture’s distribution network. 

Within this significant undertaking, a series of antique movement blanks will be restored using ancestral crafts and upgraded to meet 21st century Poinçon de Genève specifications as part of an exceptional series of limited editions. Each will incorporate a perpetual calendar, either alone or accompanied by one or more of the other three most sophisticated horological complications. 

When Dubuis describes his career, one cannot help but be fascinated by his deepfelt commitment, his love of horology in its authentic and traditional sense. Whether in restoring complicated timepieces in the Galerie d’Horlogerie Ancienne (later renamed Antiquorum), devoting his considerable expertise to ébauches (movement blanks in the Grand Complication department of a great Genevabased Maison), or founding the Groupement Genevois des Cabinotiers, Mr Roger Dubuis has unceasingly dedicated himself to serving as the custodian of watchmaking professions. 

“My character has been forged through restoration”, explains Mr Roger Dubuis. “What could be more moving and uplifting than to walk in the footsteps of these watchmakers from another era? I have always felt immense admiration and profound respect for their work, their conscientious discipline and their superior intelligence. The overriding purpose has always been to ensure that all of us who are true devotees of fine mechanisms may continue to enjoy these masterpieces – whether new or historical creations – and to pass them on in our turn.” 

Origins of the Millésime concept 
This particular episode in the life and times of the Incredible World of Roger Dubuis began in 2001, just a few years after the company founding in 1995, when Mr Roger Dubuis purchased several ébauches with the intention of upgrading them to meet the stringent requirements of the Poinçon de Genève. 

The first unique restoration piece with an RD60 calibre sold for a million Swiss francs.The project was subsequently placed on standby until his return to the firm some years later. 

Fast forward to 2015. To commemorate its 20th anniversary, Manufacture Roger Dubuis pays tribute to ancient watchmaking skills by re-launching this restoration project incorporating the remaining movement blanks gifted by its founder and ‘soulmaker’ as a series of privileged one-of-akind creations entirely dedicated to the Hommage collection and picking up its distinctive signature codes. 

Exclusively available in Roger Dubuis boutiques and launched to salute the opening of a flagship store, one of these restoration Millésime models will be produced per year and will thus become an annual highlight eagerly awaited by connoisseurs and collectors. The common theme running through these exceptional restoration pieces is that all will bear the prized Poinçon de Genève and comprise a perpetual calendar, either on its own, or along with another of the other three major horological complications (minute repeater, tourbillon or chronograph). 

All are based on calibres gifted by Mr Roger Dubuis himself, and each will be restored using the most authentic artistic crafts and techniques. As in the case of restoring paintings that have been damaged, or which may call for reconstruction of missing elements, these are not new developments. Instead, they involve the restoration of ancient pieces through entirely artisanal means, in line with the original constructio sometimes requiring the recreation of missing parts. Outstanding value is added through the upgrading of the pieces to meet the requirements of the Poinçon de Genève. In this instance, complying with the Poinçon de Genève 2.0, which applies to the entire timepiece and not merely the movement, means taking a 19th century calibre and having it certified according to 21st century criteria governing not only its technical performance, but also the entire fully assembled watch.

Spotlight on Tahiti - What's going on this month
Elegant, exhilarating, generous and a place of deep harmony, there is no place like The Islands of Tahiti. This month’s we're updating you on romantic offers at the St. Regis Bora Bora, one of the world’s most unique vineyards and a French Polynesia trend on social media.

Discover the world’s most unique Vineyard in Rangiroa
Rangiroa might be famous for its fascinating lagoon and diving spots, but those are not the island’s only secrets. Since June 2015, the Hotel Kia Ora Resort & Spa is offering an exclusive “Rangiroa Vineyard Excursion” to their guests, taking them to a unique islet where grapes grown in the coral atoll sand are used to produce wine. The tour is accompanied by an expert guide and finishes with a tasting of several types of this rare wine. 

French Polynesia: one of the “most pinned” locations by Britons
According to a recent Pinterest survey, French Polynesia is one of the top 3 of the “most pinned” locations by UK users, a good indication that the crystalline waters of the South Pacific are among the most desired destinations worldwide.
