Roger Dubuis Excalibur Blacklight Trilogy

Swiss luxury watch brand Roger Dubuis expands their Excalibur collection by presenting the Excalibur Blacklight Trilogy.

The new Excalibur Blacklight model incorporates an artistic new version of the iconic RD820SQ calibre, featuring a decor made possible by a technology used for the first time in the Haute Horlogerie industry. The calibre takes on a whole new dimension by offering a mix of materials to display a unique and contemporary design.

The signature Roger Dubuis ‘Astral Skeleton’ movement presents an innovative technology using micro-structures made of lab-grown sapphire identical to that used in watchmaking jewels. The aesthetic and creative dimension displayed throughout the calibre gives the impression of a veritable 3D mechanical sculpture. Its inherent ability to glow under UV light reveals the motif as it were floating in the case at night. In a final flourish of technology enabled the skilled artisans of the Roger Dubuis ateliers allow the diamond at the centre of the Astral Skeleton to stand out in solitary splendour. This strategic effect further reinforces its taut lines and impressive visual depth generating multiple levels and angles.

The Blacklight Trilogy collection comes in a 28-piece pink gold limited edition, accompanied by an 88-piece blue version with a white gold case and black alternative in DLC titanium. All these timepieces bear the prestigious Poinçon de Genève certification. The pink gold limited edition is a boutique exclusive.
