Collaborating with one of the world’s best tyre makers, Pirelli, Roger Dubuis chose to continue the legacy of producing show-stopping pieces launched at worldrenowned events with the latest Excalibur Spider Pirelli Single Flying Tourbillon. In 2018, the term “flying” at Roger Dubuis not only refers to a spectacular horological complication, but also its overall performance as it rolls out new additions to the Excalibur family. The 2018 Monaco Grand Prix saw the unveiling of Roger Dubuis’ Excalibur Spider Pirelli Single Flying Tourbillon.
The latest outcome of this relationship with racing royalty comes with an exclusively designed Roger Dubuis expression of Pirelli’s famous distinguishing colour codes in the straps, which feature rubber inlays from certified Pirelli winning tyres. Motorsports enthusiasts and watch aficionados at the Grand Prix were thrilled to learn that the strap matched the tyres of the winning driver’s car.
Moreover, the watch comes with a PitStop Collector Box, a set of seven interchangeable straps that symbolise the seven Pirelli tyre colours used for competitions in the previous season. Each strap conveys part of the Pirelli logo positioned on the side of every high-speed motor racing tyre and is engraved with the code used by Pirelli to track its winning tyres—the outcome when visionary engineers meet with incredible watchmakers.
The icing on the cake is the ultimate customer-experience touch Roger Dubuis offers for this particular product. The Excalibur Spider Pirelli Single Flying Tourbillon features a Quick Release System (QRS) on the strap, which allows buckle changing in less than three seconds. With a black DLC-coated titanium case, this 28-piece limited-edition boutique-exclusive features new trigger and bridge designs along with a spectacular transparent view of the hand-wound calibre with power reserve indicator and stateof- the-art black Astral Skeleton.
