Roger Dubuis teams up with the Bobsleigh Federation of Russia
By Romit Jethwaney — February 22, 2013
The Geneva based Haute-Horlogerie Maison, Roger Dubuis and
the Russian Bobsleigh Federation held a press conference at the Park Hyatt
Ararat Moscow to announce their new partnership. The two partners gathered to
celebrate their shared values, precision and commitment to performance, over
the coming years.
After many successful years within Russia, Roger Dubuis
naturally accepted this new partnership with the Bobsleigh Federation of
Russia. Both partners are not only driven by passion, but also by their mutual
respect of key traditions in their fields including groundbreaking innovation
and defining new boundaries.
As of today, the promising Russian Bobsleigh and Skeleton
teams will receive the support of Roger Dubuis, which has for many years
established itself at the top of Haute-Horlogerie, combining innovation and
excellence. The Genevan Maison, well-known for its audacious designs and
contemporary approach of fine watch making, stands out by being the only brand
to certify 100% of its timepieces with the precious Hallmark of Geneva. This
unique certification, dedicated to preserving the quality and respect of the
tradition, not only guarantees the performance of each timepiece but also the
individual finishing of every single component.
The four-man bobsleigh team has already secured four key
victories in a row, predicting many wins at future competitions. One man will
have to be closely followed: Aleksander Zubkov, whose team is now leading with
a perfect season thus far.
"We are very happy and excited to get such an amazing watch
brand like Roger Dubuis on board as an official partner and I’m sure this
cooperation will have positive influence on our teams. As you might have seen
already, the Russian Bobsleigh team is having great success this year. We have
received amazing results since the beginning of the season, getting the gold
medals four times in a row in the World Cup for four-man category and I believe
we will keep this leading position.” said Mr Bedzhamov, President of the
Bobsleigh federation of Russia.
Roger Dubuis collections are instantly recognisable and
share the brand’s specific identity codes. The over-sized cases with
transparent backs, the imposing crowns, the stylised Roman numerals, the three
lugs attaching the strap to the case or the tourbillion carriage shaped like a
Celtic cross are all distinctive Roger Dubuis features.
