Jay Deshpande is the associate editor of WatchTime, reporting on industry news, notable collectors and horological history for the print and tablet editions. He has previously written for Boston Review, Publishers Weekly, Harvard Book Review and All About Jazz, among others.
With a name that means “the lady from Monaco,” one would expect Roger Dubuis’s La Monégasque collection to have all the flash and sparkle of a Monte Carlo casino. So it comes as a surprise that, compared to many of the other collections from the usually flamboyant Roger Dubuis, the Chronograph La Monégasque is decidedly understated. The rest of the face is gray, black and silver, with white scales on the main dial and subdials. One has to look past the immediately obvious in order to appreciate some of the design’s appealing details: sunburst decoration, tasteful white rings in the subdials, and an hour ring with circular satin finishing. The three silver-colored hands for the hour, minutes and running seconds and the little hand on the elapsed-minutes subdial each have a longitudinal ridge down the midline to separate the hand’s two facets. The elapsed-seconds hand has a lacquered white tip. The quality of craftsmanship lavished on the dial is very high, but when we examined it through a loupe we found a tiny drip in the lacquered surface of the “2” on the hour ring, as well as a very slight irregularity in the lacquer on the tip of...
