Introduction

A legendary figure in the arena of independent watchmaking, Roger Dubuis learned his trade by working for several large Haute Horlogerie brands like Patek Philippe before embarking on his own endeavors. Founding his eponymous brand in 1995, Roger Dubuis’ timepieces have evolved into some of the best-regarded pieces of early high-end independent horology the market has to offer. Released in the early 2000s, the Roger Dubuis Dual Time GMT ref. M34 is a wonderful example of Dubuis’ distinctive take on horological design. Featuring a 34mm wide stainless steel rectangular case with short lugs and a uniquely knurled winding crown, the Dual Time GMT’s construction is classical yet somewhat whimsical, much like its dial design. Featuring two hour displays, one for each timezone, and a centrally-located minute hand with an eclectic blend of exploding Roman numerals, Arabic numerals for the hours, and plain Arabic numerals for the minutes, this timepiece’s design is a melody that could only be achieved by someone with the watchmaking credentials of Roger Dubuis. Limited to 88 units and individually numbered, this is as rare a timepiece as it is stunning.

Fitted with a jet black glossy dial, the ref. M34 sports two timezones atop one another to indicate the time in each of its wearer's two selected locations alongside a central minutes hand.

THE CASE

Fitted with a rectangular stainless steel case with short lugs and a distinctive crown, the ref. M34's 34mm-wide case is refined and elegant - the perfect combination for a timepiece of Roger Dubuis' quality.

TIMING MACHINE READOUT

This reading was taken (crown down) with a ONEOF Accuracy Boutique Edition timing machine at time of cataloging. It is provided as a courtesy only, and shall not be construed as a warranty or guarantee of any kind. Please refer to our terms and conditions of sale for more information.

Condition

Watch is in overall very good condition. There is surface wear and a few small dings on the case as well as deployant. Strap shows moderate signs of use.

Please Note: Due to CITES considerations, if the watch is to be shipped outside of the USA, the exotic skin strap will have to be removed.

Our Perspective

An interesting take on one of watchmaking's most practical complications, the Dual Time GMT M34 communicates Roger Dubuis' love of creating aesthetically unique timepieces that are still refined and classical.
