Dare to be rare
ROGER DUBUIS REVEAL PARTNERSHIP WITH WORLD-RENOWNED ITALIAN DESIGNER
TO MARK THE PARTNERSHIP between Roger Dubuis and renowned designer Italdesign, the Geneva watchmaker has launched a magnificent eight-piece limited edition of the brand’s cutting-edge Excalibur line.
The Excalibur Spider Single Tourbillon is a stunning combination of carbon and ceramic sporting the Italian national colours. This latest alliance follows hot on the heels of another spectacular luxury partnership between Roger Dubuis, the self-styled brand that dares to be different, and iconic Italian tyre manufacturer, Pirelli, launched at the SIHH 2017.
Produced as a boutique-exclusive, eightpiece limited edition, the Excalibur Spider Italdesign Edition is a perfect blend of the Roger Dubuis ‘Dare to be Rare’ challenge, in complete symbiosis with the sleek, futuristic styling characteristic of Italdesign and its ‘Designing New Ambition’ DNA.
The skeleton timepiece features a star-shaped design, tourbillon carriage in the shape of a Celtic cross and high-end finishing, which includes the circulargrained plate of a hand-wound Calibre RD505SQ.
The bezel and flange also provide an ideal showcase for colour coding – in this case with red-tipped skeleton hands and red rubber vulcanised titanium crown. This design element is further used to full advantage with the white and red of the Italian flag on the dial and green, white and red stitching on the black rubber strap.
