ROGER DUBUIS EX­CAL­IBUR HU­RACÁN PER­FOR­MANTE

The Peak (Malaysia) - - The Brief -

In ap­proach­ing this watch, Roger Dubuis set out to cre­ate a move­ment that would be to horol­ogy what the su­per­car en­gine is to the mo­tor­ing in­dus­try. And what re­sulted is the RD630, an en­gi­neer­ing feat of an au­to­matic cal­i­bre, pow­ered by twin barrels and fea­tur­ing a bal­ance wheel with a 12° an­gle. A to­tal of 233 com­po­nents make up this move­ment, which also houses a 60-hour power re­serve, all con­tained in a 45mm case. Rac­ing im­agery abound as this par­tic­u­lar cal­i­bre is made in part­ner­ship with Lam­borgh­ini Squadra Corse (which ex­plains the name) and fea­tures rac­ing de­sign el­e­ments like a strut bar bridge, a ro­tor rem­i­nis­cent of a rim and a Pirelli tyre pat­tern on the rub­ber in­lay Al­can­tara strap.
