Roger Dubuis and Lam­borgh­ini break bound­aries with their col­lab­o­ra­tive time­piece

Indonesia Tatler - - Style -

At the top of the game in their re­spec­tive in­dus­tries, a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Roger Dubuis and Lam­borgh­ini seemed only natural as Swiss pre­ci­sion meets Ital­ian horse­power. Roger Dubuis and Lam­borgh­ini worked to­gether to cre­ate a rev­o­lu­tion­ary new time­piece steeped in aes­thetic flair and high-pow­ered per­for­mance: the Ex­cal­ibur Aven­ta­dor S.

With their R&D driven ap­proaches and shared fo­cus on aes­thet­ics, the part­ner­ship be­tween Roger Dubuis and Lam­borgh­ini was one born of mu­tual at­trac­tion. Work­ing to­gether with Lam­borgh­ini Squadra Corse— the leg­endary car­maker’s mo­tor­sport divi­sion—the engi­neers and de­sign­ers at Roger Dubuis have cre­ated the ul­ti­mate ex­pe­ri­ence in haute hor­logerie.

Akin to slid­ing into a Lam­borgh­ini, the Ex­cal­ibur Aven­ta­dor S com­bines noble and high-tech ma­te­ri­als while en­sur­ing top-rate per­for­mance. One of the chal­lenges lay in keep­ing a sport­ing and so­phis­ti­cated look with the ma­te­ri­als while main­tain­ing an in­nate sense of lux­ury and pres­tige.

Within the skele­tonised Ex­cal­ibur Spider case, the watch is driven by a most out­stand­ing “en­gine”. De­vel­oped ex­clu­sively for this time­piece, the Duo­tor cal­i­bre is in­spired by the clas­sic Aven­ta­dor S en­gine and the ground­break­ing Hu­racàn Su­per Tro­feo EVO. The rein­ter­preted move­ment is an em­bod­i­ment of the watch­maker’s con­stant growth in their ex­per­tise. The new move­ment keeps with proud Lam­borgh­ini tra­di­tion and is fu­elled by the al­lure of tech­no­log­i­cal com­plex­ity.

The one-of-a-kind Duo­tor cal­i­bre is eas­ily distin­guished by the en­gine strut bars that re­visit the iconic Roger Dubuis As­tral Skele­ton prin­ci­ple, strik­ing an eye-catch­ing con­trast with the rest of the move­ment. The de­sign also evokes im­ages of a trans­par­ent en­gine hood. The per­for­mance-en­hanc­ing lon­gi­tu­di­nal place­ment of Lam­borgh­ini en­gines is the in­spi­ra­tion be­hind the place­ment of the dou­ble bal­ance wheel.

In­clined at a sim­i­lar an­gle and sup­ported by hold­ers shaped like tri­an­gu­lar wheel sus­pen­sion as­sem­blies, aes­thet­ics and per­for­mance come to­gether seam­lessly. The power con­trol dis­play makes up the cen­tral sig­na­ture in the mid­dle of the watch—just like in the su­per­cars. Bring­ing to­gether the var­i­ous en­gi­neer­ing and de­sign mar­vels is the clas­sic, un­mis­tak­able Lam­borgh­ini “Giallo Orion” yel­low paint code—picked up in a num­ber of de­sign fea­tures.

Epit­o­mis­ing the “dare to be rare” con­cept, Ex­cal­ibur Aven­ta­dor S in yel­low is avail­able in 88 lim­ited edi­tions.
