Dare to be rare


Virtuozity - - Watch News -

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.
