With its asymmetrical case, deconstructed time display and gentle curves contrasting with a powerful architecture, the RGT disrupts codes and combines opposites in providing an offbeat and resolutely avant-garde take on Haute Horlogerie.
Since 2007, the Geneva-based House of Ladoire has been playing with contradictions and associating extremes within atypical creations featuring cutting-edge complications and sophisticated aesthetics.
Roller Guardian Time Blue - Limited Edition of 3
Under the impetus of Lionel Ladoire, the design of these models is defined, shaped and matured in tune with an underground-rock style mood inspired by contemporary culture and some of its most famous exponents such as Jean-Paul Gaultier, Andy Warhol and Philippe Starck.
The daringly asymmetrical Roller Guardian Time RGT confronts a virile design with the soft lines and silk touch of the case middle, while the resolutely technical nature of the display stands out against the backdrop of the ultra-refined movement decorations.
Crafted according to the rigorous standards of fine leather-making, the blue alligator leather LADOIRE strap features a hand-sewn matt black leather lining and is fitted with an articulated double pin buckle.
This summer, Lionel Ladoire is introducing a three-piece limited edition on which the revisited bridges, strap and dial sport a casual denim blue shade.
