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- 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. edge complications and sophisticated aesthetics.

Under the impetus of Lionel Ladoire, the design of these models is defined, shaped and matured in Stemming from an unbridled imagination and a decidedly offbeat mind-set - symbolised by the signature spider's web engraved on the GMT wheel and the ratchet - LADOIRE Genève creations shake up traditional watchmaking codes and favour deconstructed time displays.

Endowed with an extraordinarily complex display mode and unusual dimensions, the innovative concept of the H M S Planetary® complication is duly protected by a patent.
The entirely offset Hour, Minute and Seconds indications of this Regulator-type model are displayed by three cages mounted on ceramic micro ball bearings. The RGT also features a GMT function with a central hand that can be rapidly adjusted via a dedicated corrector push-button at 2 o'clock.

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.
