In the 1980s, he went independent and established his own watch repair shop in Geneva.
Speaking of Patek Philippe, it is a famous brand that deals with many complicated watches that anyone who is a watch lover knows. He was a watch maker with a very high level of technical ability.
As a watch engineer, Mr. Roger Dubuis learned advanced techniques at both manufacturers, and by coming into contact with various movements, he may have expanded the concept of the in-house movement that was announced after independence.
Starting with the in-house movement that took about four years to develop since its establishment in 1999, three works were announced: Golden Square in 2002, and SAW series Aquamare, Seymour, and Easy Diver in 2004, transforming one after another. Roger Dubuis making a breakthrough.
Then in 2005, Roger Dubuis' iconic Excalibur was announced.

From the early traditional classical model to the current Roger Dubuis dynamic design sports model, it is one of the models that became a turning point.
