Hold on to your seats as we’re about to take you in on a magical experience. As a child, entering Candyland was all things magical. Pops of colour, creative surroundings, and where the child within us emerged! Newly launched Roger Dubuis Excalibur Gully MT gives us such feels.
Roger Dubuis and its URBAN ART TRIBE continue on their journey of pushing the boundaries of Hyper Horology. Gully, the French graffiti-turned studio artist, is the second disruptive soul to take on the challenge of reinterpreting the star of the iconic Excalibur Monotourbillon timepiece. Let’s discover how his colorful graffiti world and Maison’s high watchmaking expertise combine into one singular masterpiece.
Gully, like Roger Dubuis, looks for inspiration in the most unexpected places and lets the world inspire him. When you combine His idea of bringing people from diverse worlds together with their skills and drive, you get a completely new viewpoint. Gully’s goal is to change the limits of his profession. Is that his wish? To create something that has never been seen before. The Excalibur Monotourbillon is the ideal canvas for his imagination.Gully elevates the Excalibur Monotourbillon to new heights by consciously stealing the astral trademark and fusing it with his graffiti style. He adapts his trademark single-line technique on the canvas of Hyper Horology as a tribute to his very first street works. Letters resulting from his continual movement not only recreate our star but also see the artist sign the dial with his name.
The Roger Dubuis Excalibur Gully MT is encased in a 42mm Dark Grey DLC Titanium case and placed on a black calf leather strap.
Micro-structures filled with luminescent colored lacquer replace the star-shaped bridge with a skeleton dial representing the artist’s signature. The watch houses an improved performance calibre RD512SQ: the tourbillon’s lower carriage made of titanium gives it a 72-hours power reserve. It also has a cobalt chrome upper tourbillon carriage for a better mirror finish. Titanium and cobalt chrome are both anti-magnetic elements. Durability has been improved, thanks to the new lube.
A timepiece, according to Gully, is a decision. A decision that expresses how you wish to be perceived by the rest of the world. his trademark is bringing different worlds together. Gully is as bold and dazzling in his thoughts as we are. he is extravagant, determined, and disruptive. He devotes himself to bringing multiple worlds together using a variety of blended techniques and materials, believing that all work stems from what came before it. He, like us, is inspired by trailblazers, learning from them and creating something new and distinctive in their place, never ashamed to confess to others’ excellence.
