Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Huracan STOJune 24, 2022
Dubbed the Excalibur Spider Huracan STO, the timepiece has been displayed with the same Blue Laufey and California Orange color combination as the Huracan STO show car. The Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Huracan STO features a 45 mm skeletonized carbon case with rubber inlays topped with a titanium bezel and metallicized sapphire crystal, while the strap has perforated calfskin leather and a rubber interior liner. The main highlights are – an automatic RD630 calibre with a honeycomb motif, which Roger Dubuis developed specifically for its tandem with Lamborghini Squadra Corse. The movement is from a 12-degree-angled balance wheel coupled with a 360-degree oscillating weight. It has a lot of resemblance to that of the Huracan like the upper calibre has a strut-bar design bridge as seen in the V10 engine, the bezels are finished in black DLC titanium with a sleek carbon case with rubber inlays. The case back is also inspired by the wheels of the Huracan.
Lamborghini and Roger Dubuis are becoming quite the team. Just weeks after the Italian supercar maker debuted the new Huracán STO, it has been given the limited-edition watch treatment.
Late last week, the Swiss watchmaker revealed a new hyperwatch based on the high-performance variant that, by the way, is heavily rumored to be the final Huracán. And like its muse, the timepiece offers a bold design that’s matched by high-performance mechanical components.
The first thing you’ll notice about the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Huracan STO is its striking colorway. The watch’s dial, bezel and strap all include traces of Blue Laufey and California Orange, both of which feature prominently in the STO’s racing-inspired livery. The piece features a 45mm skeletonized carbon case with rubber inlays topped with a titanium bezel and metallicized sapphire crystal. The new strap, meanwhile, consists of perforated calfskin leather over a rubber interior liner.
The watch’s interior workings are just as eye-catching. It’s powered by an automatic RD630 calibre with a honeycomb motif, designed specifically for use in Roger Dubuis’s Lamborghini watches. Described by the watchmaker as a “mean machine,” this signature movement features a 12-degree angled balance wheel with a 360-degree oscillating weight that reproduces the same speed effect as the STO’s wheel. It’s topped with an upper calibre a strut-bar bridge that looks almost identical to those found on the Huracán’s V10 engine. The watch also has a power reserve of 60 hours.
If all that sounds a bit over the top, just consider the vehicle the watch is based on. The STO is road-homologated supercar inspired by Lamborghini Squadra Corse’s one-make Huracán Super Trofeo EVO race series. It features a naturally aspirated V-10 capable of churning out 640 horses and 417 ft lbs of twist at 6,500 rpm. If it does in fact turn out to be the final Huracán, it’s not a bad way to say goodbye.
After the exciting launch of the new Roger Dubuis Lamborghini Huracan STO, Roger Dubuis knew what they had to do. With an already stunning lineup of Lamborghini-inspired watches within the Excalibur range, they have just added the Excalibur Spider Huracan STO timepiece. This new timepiece has a color scheme that matches the debut example of the Huracan STO. As with the other Excalibur Spider Huracan timepieces, this new timepiece features the RD630 caliber that was developed specifically for Roger Dubuis’ partnership with Lamborghini Squadra Corse. Special touches were given to this caliber to signify the partnership, including the rotor that was designed after a supercar wheel rim. Just 88 pieces of the exquisite Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Huracan STO will be created, each with a price of $56,500. If you’re interested, they can only be purchased at Roger Dubuis boutiques.
