Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Pirelli and Excalibur Spider 2021

Over the years, Roger Dubuis has demonstrated its penchant for excess and extravagance. Driven by a quest for pleasure, and consistently placing technique at the service of aesthetics, the Maison prides itself on this mindset. Unparalleled technical expertise seamlessly blended with unleashed creativity propel extraordinary feats in the Maison’s fully integrated Manufacture at the heart of Geneva, where state-of-the-art technology works hand in hand with traditional watchmaking crafts.

The Maison has also drawn inspiration from other cutting-edge industries, giving birth to iconic partnerships such as with famous tyre expert Pirelli, sharing common values and vividly demonstrating what happens when visionary engineers meet incredible watchmakers. Fuelled by thrills and emotions, the outcome is a line-up of code-breaking timepieces designed for an exclusive tribe on the prowl for off-the-radar experiences. When it comes to reinventing the Hyper Horology game, Roger Dubuis’ exclusive tribe has come to expect the unexpected at every turn…

The powerful, daring Excalibur iconic collection is Roger Dubuis’ favourite platform of expression, providing the best possible vehicle for the no-compromise Roger Dubuis lifestyle. Today, the brand that dares to be different celebrates its partnership with Pirelli through the release of an exciting new interpretation of its iconic Excalibur collection, the Excalibur Spider and Excalibur Spider Pirelli.

No challenge is too big for Roger Dubuis to take on and demonstrate its serial-innovator spirit. The unleashed creativity of Roger Dubuis’ R&D department has created a small-sized setting for the Manufacture’s signature skeleton flying tourbillon. An in-house calibre featuring one of Hyper Horology’s most sought-after complications, reduced to its essence to be fitted into a 39mm case. Equipped with a 60 hours power reserve, this impressive feat of mechanical engineering is accentuated by Hallmark of Geneva decorations.

Whether in pink gold with white accents, titanium total black or sporty red and black, all three versions are equipped with Roger Dubuis’ ingenious quick-release system and interchangeable straps. This enables the Maison’s exclusive tribe to enjoy the freedom of swapping looks quickly and easily. A versatile model whose diameter as well as different strap sizes make it a perfect fit for both men’s and women’s wrists.

Each model comes with a different inlay: the one matching the red Pirelli iteration is made from winning motorsport tyre rubber having competed in real races, while the black version sports Rubber Tech and the white glows in calf leather. All are fitted with exclusive straps featuring the legendary profile of a Pirelli CinturatoTM intermediate tyre on the inside.

They are available as limited editions of just 88 each for the black or white Excalibur Spider models; and 28 for the Excalibur Spider Pirelli. Only a fortunate few will thus be able to showcase their singularity with one of these cutting-edge timepieces.

It’s time to hold your breath and get ready for the unexpected. Quite simply because Roger Dubuis is unquestionably the most exciting way to experience Hyper Horology.
