Roger Dubuis is Shattering Conventions with its Excalibur Spider Ultimate Carbon timepiece
The Excalibur is the maison’s bold step in blending modern technology with its aesthetic tradition.
Today, watchmakers devote equal amount of attention to the aesthetic aspect of its craft as
its technical counterpart. The coveted practice of sharing the tourbillion’s inner beauty
came along with the invention of sapphire cases. The focus on aesthetic design also opened
up greater doors to stylising and ornamenting the once hidden beauty through variants of
gem embellishment and engraving, to name a few. From the Antoine Preziuso Trillion
‘Tourbillon of Tourbillons” timepiece showcased and nominated at GPHG 2018 to the highly
unusual Zenith Defy Zero G Virgen de Guadelupe at SIAR 2018, tourbillions are now
mechanical masterpieces that are also designed to cater to the fashion sartorialist.
Roger Dubuis Shattering Conventions with It’s Excalibur Spider Ultimate Carbon timepiece
Amongst the finest examples is Roger Dubuis’s Excalibur Spider Ultimate Carbon timepiece
that demonstrates cutting-edge craft. Nobody does Fine Watchmaking quite like Roger Dubuis, for which innovation and a drive to push technical and aesthetic limits to breaking point are an integral part of its DNA. Not to mention a fearless ability and determination to shake up watchmaking codes and overturn existing rules.
This highly complex model is made predominantly out of carbon fibre from start to strap, encrusted with diamonds – a bold juxtaposition of carbon on carbon. Echoing the shining Astral Skeleton star that is signature of Roger Dubuis, this bejewelled timepiece also features a star-shaped barrel and, notably, the Celtic cross tourbillon carriage, both set in baguette-cut diamonds. Unique to this timepiece, one may also find a power reserve indicator at 9 o’clock. The Excalibur is the maison’s bold step in blending modern technology with its aesthetic tradition.
