Race Against Time

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.
