After the remarkable achievement of 2013’s Excalibur Quatuor watch, Roger Dubuis has not been sitting still. Gregory Bruttin, R&D and watchmaking director, and his team have introduced the latest iteration of the Excalibur Spider Skeleton Flying Tourbillon line, featuring coloured precious stones and an innovative new technology that allows the gems to be embedded in a newly created rubber strap.
There are baguette-cut blue sapphires, rubies, and black spinels. Each of the stone types adorns only eight watches, for a grand sum of 24 for the international market. The flying tourbillon carriage with its unique Celtic cross shape, the RD505SQ skeleton, and the characteristic Dubuis star-shaped construction, are all present in these pieces. In an unprecedented strategic move, the company has also produced 20 Excalibur Spider Skeleton Flying Tourbillon Americas Edition watches, with white rubber strap and bright yellow and red accents on the dial, only available at the Dubuis flagship boutique on Madison Avenue in New York City.
The company continues to build on past triumphs, bringing exciting new innovations and aesthetics to bear. In the highly competitive, rare art of haute horlogerie, the Excalibur Spider Skeleton Flying Tourbillon is a standout.
