Massaro pays homage to legendary screen sirens Greta Garbo, Rita Hayworth, and Lana Turner in their creations for Dubuis, each strap is handmade and therefore no two are exactly alike, adding to the couture quality of the piece.

The Roger Dubuis founded his manufacture in 1995, after working as a top watchmaker for Patek Philippe and Franck Muller. Today, all Roger Dubuis watches are Geneva Seal certified, the brand only creates mechanical timepieces. Other collections include Excaliber, Hommage, La Monégasque, and Pulsion, with a wide variety of complications available.

Massaro’s website reveals the origin of the French maison “A family saga that has become a passion by joining the Chanel constellation in 2002, Massaro continues the adventure begun in 1894 and has seen a succession of three generations of master shoemakers at the now legendary address of 2, rue de la Paix in Paris.” A fitting partner for Dubuis. Bravo!
