For Roger Dubuis “Dare to be rare” is not a simple slogan: it is the very essence of every new product. The result is immediately recognizable watches designed for people who are not afraid of being noticed and who demand from a timepiece more and more daring technologies and designs and the highest level of watchmaking certification. It is for this reason that each model of the fashion house is awarded the Geneva Punch. And it is always for this reason that the Swiss house, in recent times, has decided to link its name to two great Italian excellences: Lamborghini and Pirelli.
Celebrate a year the partnership with the house of Sant’Agata Bolognese, whose cars inspired models like the Excalibur Aventador S, introducing the use of multi-layer carbon and C-SMC carbon (the same one used for the on-board technology of Lamborghini). Thanks to the black sapphire and DLC titanium glass caseback, the 45 mm case is the perfect frame for the manual winding mechanical caliber with double spiral rocker arms, precision adjustment in six positions and hours and minutes functions, jumping seconds, indicator of the power reserve.
Under the banner of speed and audacity, the partnership with Pirelli, which for the year 2018 leads to the launch of the Excalibur Spider Pirelli in black titanium with white accents, refers to the aesthetics of the asphalt. Offered in only 88 pieces, it has a 45 mm skeleton case and a mechanical self-winding caliber with a skeleton micro-rotor and fine adjustment in six positions. The strap has a black rubber base and an insert from Pirelli tires that have raced and won automobile races, inside reproduces the characteristic motif of a Pirelli tire and is equipped with a quick release system to allow replacement.
The two Roger Dubuis collections are – as always – from Pisa Orologeria, in via Verri, in the heart of Milan’s fashion district, which for the entire month of October has set up a special dedicated space for two equally unique collections.
