The only manufacture to be 100% Poingon de Geneve certified. Roger Dubuis

The Above Italian wild bull and these two Roger Dubuis is having similar price tag!

In order to combat the abusive use of the name of Genava, which had become synonymous with First Class expertise, the Societe des Horlogers succeeded in getting the State of Genena to promulgate a law instituting the Poincon de geneve.
The was likely one of very first anti-counterfeit measures.

It officially came into forces the 1886 and was granted to only a handful of manufacturers,  with the seal or hallmark engraved directly on the movement serving as a guarantee that the mechanism was made, assembled ,polished and adjusted in Geneva and that compiled with the strictest demands and standard of watchmaking.

There are 30,000,000 watches made every year in Switzerland, only small fraction of that is certified to bear such a hallmark, that is no more than 0.08%, that is 8 in 10,000 pieces having such standard for watch making craftsmanship including 5,000 watches carefully made by Roger Dubuis!

Every Roger Dubuis watch has this “Poincon de Geneve” on the watch, I had a chance to see these likely the most beautiful and sophisticated watches Roger Dubuis made…

The Excalibur Skeleton Double Flying Tourbillon in Pink gold 45mm.  HKD$2,300,000

The Excalibur flying tourbillon mono-pusher chronograph with visible micro-rotor HKD$1,300,000

Well, I had not having the chance to see this master piece Excalibur Quatuor in "Silicon", Limited of 3 pieces and had been sold, HKD$8,500,000
