Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider PitStopJune 20, 2022
Swiss luxury watch maker roger dubuis excalibur skeleton replica presents Excalibur Single Flying Tourbillon, the most recent interpretation of their hyper horology creations. Enhanced with meticulous care, this new timepiece is reinterpreted with sophistication and flair using modern and technical materials. The new design showcases clean cut lines on both case and movement. The new roger dubuis excalibur skeleton replica RD512SQ calibre creates the impression of a thinner look and feel, while heightening the sense of transparency and depth. The Roger Dubuis star now levitates freely above the barrel. A strong visual identity is created with a signature two-line pattern – seen between the notch on the crown and bezel, the star’s arms, the tourbillon’s cage, the hour’s marking on the flange, the hands – all of which cleverly appear as though they will meet but never do. Certified by Poinçon de Genève, this fine watchmaking movement features decorations such as circular-brushed top surfaces and polished angles that demonstrate Roger Dubuis’ imaginative approach. Each component of the movement is manually finished in-house.The new RD512SQ calibre comes with a titanium lower tourbillon cage – twice lighter than stainless steel – and a mirror-polished Cobalt Chrome upper tourbillon cage, the weight of the piece is reduced to optimum effect. This allows the power reserve to be radically optimised to 72 hours. The non-magnetic material used inside the tourbillon improves chronometric performance.To facilitate a comfortable experience around the wrists, the brand now offers a range of entirely new strap sizes. With 5 sizes from 0 to 4, finding the perfect strap ensures the buckle is always centred on the wrist, as a Quick Release System offers ultimate flexibility. The 42mm case is only available in eighty-eight pieces per colourway: Dark Grey DLC Titanium, Cobalt Chrome CarTech Micro-Melt BioDur CCMTM and the new EON GOLD, a pink gold shade that remains more stable thanks to non-tarnish technology.
roger dubuis excalibur skeleton replica has introduced three flying tourbillon-equipped models each housed in new smaller 39mm cases to appeal to a wider audience.
In recent years Roger Dubuis’ watchmaking strategy has been bigger, better, faster, more; running in perfect harmony with that of supercar partner, Lamborghini. But when your watch cases average 45mm there will be many customers whose wrists are left out in the cold, unable to carry off such large watches.
That’s where the brand’s new 39mm case size comes in, opening the door to a whole host of new customers but still packing the same horological punch.
Two Excalibur Spider Flying Tourbillons, one each for men and women, as well as a sportier, more colourful Excalibur Pirelli Flying Tourbillon have been created in the new size giving the brand greater reach.
The EX0815 features a black DLC-coated titanium case with rubber inlays, lacquered 10-minute markings on the bezel and a black rubber strap. Its lighter, more feminine companion piece EX 0816 instead opts for an 18kt pink gold case with titanium core and white rubber strap.
A sportier piece within Roger Dubuis’ partnership with tiremaker Pirelli, the EX0817, features the same black DLC-coated titanium case with bright red accents and inlays. Its rubber strap is created from used tire rubber, certified as being sourced from genuine Pirelli race-winning tires.
All three pieces feature aesthetically different versions of the same heavily skeletonized, manually wound 3Hz movement with 60-second flying tourbillon and 60-hour power reserve. While each movement features the same prominent star-shaped bridge, a signature of the brand, the two motorsport-inspired pieces include a hexagonal grille matrix filling in the open-worked voids.
