This year, Roger Dubuis is pushing the boundaries between technology and art to answer watch collectors’ needs for daring timepieces. The Swiss watch manufacturer, known for its aesthetically superior and luxury watches, is presenting the true definition of a prestigious watch: the Excalibur Spider Carbon3, wrapped in full carbon structures for the first time.
This sophisticated timepiece of 198 components combines mind-blowing avant-garde technology with Roger Dubuis’ masterful techniques. From the multi-layered carbon bracelet to its impressive skeleton flying tourbillon, the Excalibur Spider Carbon3 is a major innovation and a durable, featherlight watch that is timelessly stylish and great on any wrist. It also won’t weigh you down: the luxurious watch clocks in at only a staggering 81 grams.
Meanwhile, the dial is made from multi-layered carbon, with the lower and upper flanges complete with rhodium-plated indices beaming with white, luminous SLN material.
Furthermore, the powerful hand-wound RD509SQ calibre behind this luxury watch offers a splendid power reserve of 90 hours and beats at 21,600 vibrations per hour (3Hz), which provides an accuracy down to a sixth of a second.
Another remarkable Roger Dubuis hallmark is the skeleton flying tourbillon. The movement truly makes for a breathtaking watch, which is further completed with the honeycomb structure on the backside to lessen pressure on the skin. Finished off with a RubberTech strap, this lavish and exclusive timepiece has been made in only 28 pieces worldwide.
The beautiful star-shaped skeleton watch will perfectly capture connoisseurs’ hearts right down to the detail of the mainspring barrel, which is installed between the numbers six and eight on the dial. The perfect watch for every occasion, the Excalibur Spider Carbon3’s depth evokes both elegance and sexiness and has been awarded the Poinçon de Genève certification of excellence.
