Esquire Malaysia Watch Guide - - Brand Story -

Yet an­other first for the watch in­dus­try. Sure, we’ve all seen watches with cases made from car­bon, but the Ex­cal­ibur Spi­der Car­bon is the first watch to of­fer a move­ment plate, bridges and a tour­bil­lon up­per-cage made en­tirely from it. As you can imag­ine, this re­sults in a watch that feels al­most weight­less on the wrist. The Cal­i­bre RD509SQ is an As­tral Skele­ton tour­bil­lon move­ment, but in­stead of be­ing empty, the skele­tonised por­tions are filled with a car­bon hon­ey­comb re­sem­bling a ra­di­a­tor grill as a trib­ute to its mo­tor­sports in­spi­ra­tion. Un­like other car­bon vari­a­tions, the ma­te­rial used in this watch is eight per­cent less por­ous and par­tic­u­larly rigid.
