Swiss watchmaker Roger Dubuis celebrated the launch of their latest La Monegasque watch with a Monaco themed gambling event last night in the Forbes Galley Space on Fifth Avenue. Dubuis' latest collection in watches is meant to reflect the creativity of the brand by using the element of surprise, with his watches looking similar to something you would sport while checking into a casino in the heart of Las Vegas. Dubuis said that this line of watches is a sort of "an ode to gaming, glamour and the Riviera," [via ]

Guests of the night included Bill Powers, Cynthia Rowley, David Rabin, David Hirsch, Euan and Lucy Sykes Rellie, Graziano de Boni, Lynn Yeager, Miguel Fabregas, Randall Lane, Thom Filicia and Greg Calejo, Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld, Wes Gordon, Kipton Cronkite, and Gianfranco D’Attis. Over 200 guests had the luxury of trying their luck at a little Black Jack and Roulette. If they couldn't score any winnings from that, then they could try their luck winning a trip to Monaco or taking home their own La Monégasque watch. Dubuis' La Monégasque collection will be available worldwide to lavish retailers such as Kapoor Watch Company, come the end of this year.
