The Excalibur Superbia by Roger Dubuis is an ultimate contemporary mechanical watch created exclusively for elite clientele who follow larger than life attitude. This high complication watch is crafted in palladium-enriched white gold and set with exactly 600 precious white diamonds and blue sapphires.
This extraordinary hyperwatch offers a truly extravagant housing for Roger Dubuis iconic signature calibre: a brand-new double flying tourbillon movement, the RD108SQ, inspired by its legendary version launched in 2005, the first double-regulator calibre connected with a differential, built up in volume and adorned with a diamond-set star.
For the RD108SQ, paying tribute to Roger Dubuis’ status as a forerunner in the field of this extreme complication mastered by few other watchmakers, in the RD108SQ, the double flying tourbillon is transformed into the ultimate iconic signature.
Adorned with 600 white diamonds and 238 blue sapphire stones, this timepiece with a massive 45mm white gold case showcases the expertise of the Maison’s Gem-setters. However, the exclusiveness of the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Superbia watch comes neither from its alloy nor its number of stones. What makes it truly bold is that every stone set on the flange, the bezel, the case and the crown is tetrahedron shaped and assembled with an invisible setting on curved surfaces.
In the grand tradition of memento mori pocket watches, the movement of the Excalibur Superbia is secretly inscribed with the words Memento mori, a detail that will henceforth feature on each Hyperwatch created by the Maison.
