Roger Dubuis Excalibur Single Flying Tourbillon

Swiss luxury watch maker Roger Dubuis presents Excalibur Single Flying Tourbillon, the most recent interpretation of their hyper horology creations. Enhanced with meticulous care, this new timepiece is reinterpreted with sophistication and flair using modern and technical materials.

The new design showcases clean cut lines on both case and movement. The new RD512SQ calibre creates the impression of a thinner look and feel, while heightening the sense of transparency and depth. The Roger Dubuis star now levitates freely above the barrel.

A strong visual identity is created with a signature two-line pattern – seen between the notch on the crown and bezel, the star’s arms, the tourbillon’s cage, the hour’s marking on the flange, the hands – all of which cleverly appear as though they will meet but never do.

Certified by Poinçon de Genève, this fine watchmaking movement features decorations such as circular-brushed top surfaces and polished angles that demonstrate Roger Dubuis’ imaginative approach. Each component of the movement is manually finished in-house.

The new RD512SQ calibre comes with a titanium lower tourbillon cage – twice lighter than stainless steel – and a mirror-polished Cobalt Chrome upper tourbillon cage, the weight of the piece is reduced to optimum effect. This allows the power reserve to be radically optimised to 72 hours. The non-magnetic material used inside the tourbillon improves chronometric performance.

To facilitate a comfortable experience around the wrists, the brand now offers a range of entirely new strap sizes. With 5 sizes from 0 to 4, finding the perfect strap ensures the buckle is always centred on the wrist, as a Quick Release System offers ultimate flexibility.

The 42mm case is only available in eighty-eight pieces per colourway: Dark Grey DLC Titanium, Cobalt Chrome CarTech Micro-Melt BioDur CCMTM and the new EON GOLD, a pink gold shade that remains more stable thanks to non-tarnish technology.
