Roger Dubuis was born in 1938 in Geneva. He is one of the most famous Master Watchmaker of the 20th century and he is particularly known for his tourbillons. He learned how to become a watchmaker from 1953 to 1957 at the Geneva Watchmaking Academy. He then worked at Patek Philippe. In 1980, he started his own business in making his living devising complex mechanisms and restoring antique timepieces. In 1995, he partnered with the Carlos Dias and found Manufacture Roger Dubuis SA. The following year, they introduced their first retro-look watches. In 1998, they opened their own factory where they produce their own calibers which includes manual winding and automatic movements, chronographs, tourbillons and other mechanical complications. Mr. Dubuis is no longer with the company as modern business is alien to his philosophy of life, he remains an ardent craftsman.
