Roger Dubuis Hyper technical. Hyper expressive. All this and much more defines the Excalibur Double Tourbillon White Ceramic edition.
First Roger Dubuis with white ceramic case, this timepiece features a design in EON GOLDTM that creates a play of contrasts very refined.
The combination of the watch’s unique aesthetic and the advanced mechanics of the iconic double tourbillon once again proves the House’s watchmaking and technical supremacy in the world of Hyper HorologyTM.
Roger Dubuis – Shaping raw ceramics
Shaping raw ceramics to create the original case that identifies Roger Dubuis’ creations is a bold challenge: the House’s desire not to compromise on the shape of this iconic element has required a review of the entire production process.
Ceramic is four times harder to work than stainless steel, and its finish takes 15 times longer than the creation of the same gold case – only the most passionate and skilled craftsmen dare to cope with such a task.
Hyper resistant to scratches and able not to oxidize over time, ceramic timepieces by Roger Dubuis combine in themselves hyper durability and hyper expressiveness.
WATCH SKILLS LIKE NO OTHER
Recently embellished with elements of extraordinary craftsmanship, the calibre RD108 is a real technical feat, expression of a contemporary taste.
Entirely created within the Manufacture, the iconic movement features two tourbillons connected by a central differential that increases accuracy by maximizing energy transmission.In fact, the weight of the creation has been decidedly reduced, Thanks to the bottom of the tourbillon cage made of titanium – twice as light as stainless steel.
To demonstrate that no detail is left aside, no magnetic materials were used in the tourbillon, so as to provide the wearer with an even better experience.
These technical choices allow you to radically optimize the power reserve to 72 hours, which means that you can not wear the watch on the weekend without having to worry about winding it.
At the same time, the clean cut lines that characterize the 45 mm case and the movement create a strong visual identity giving the whole an impression of lightness.
The revisitation of the star Roger Dubuis, repositioned to levitate freely above the barrel, accentuates the sense of transparency and gives depth to the whole.
This dynamic aesthetic has been recognized by the Poinçon de Genève, the most rigorous of the Haute Horlogerie quality certifications since it requires that every single component of the watch is finished by hand.
The expressive and modern lines of the iconic Excalibur Doppio Tourbillon are amplified by accurate aesthetic choices.
Characterized by an undoubtedly unique and refined design, the case in a bright white ceramic is combined with a bezel, crown and case back in precious EON GOLD TM.
STRONG CONTRASTS FOR A SPECIAL DESIGN
This design is further enhanced by the pink gold coating applied to the characteristic star, hour markers and indexes, which in turn are applied to the white flange in MCF – Mineral Composite Fiber.
To give the creation a playful touch, the SuperLumiNovaTM* coating is applied with extreme precision to the iconic star and tourbillon cages, which thus shine in the dark.
The direct application on the inclined corners, without any frame to contain the luminescent paint, requires a great craftsmanship, which only a few people master.
Hour markers and the tips of the hands, coated in the same luminous material, are also visible at night. Only a lucky few will be able to secure this exceptional creation, produced in just 8 copies.
The Excalibur Double Tourbillon White Ceramic edition is the most recent progress made by Roger Dubuis in his relentless pursuit of high performance, perfect mastery of materials and distinctive design. Yet another demonstration of how the House represents and will always represent the most exciting way to experience the Hyper HorologyTM.
