Swiss luxury watch maker Roger Dubuis presents the new Excalibur Spider Pirelli, the brand’s first fully versatile timepiece fuelled by adrenaline and crafted with winning motorsport tyre rubber.
Manufactured in collaboration with Pirelli, the Excalibur Spider Pirelli watch can be customized quickly thanks to interchangeable components and an innovative quick release system. It is supplied with interchangeable straps that features rubber inlays from certified race winning Pirelli tyres.
Inspired by the renowned motorsport Pit Stop, each element of the new Excalibur Spider Pirelli is interchangeable, from strap to crown and bezel – all with a simple click. Not only is this an extremely customisable timepiece, it also features innovative lock technology.
With an uncompromising focus on a clicking sensation and sound both reassuring and thrilling, the Quick Release System on the strap and crown is now taken to the next level at the bezel, with a precise position alignment that fixes the clock with one click.
The Excalibur Spider Pirelli is equipped with Roger Dubuis’ first automatic skeleton movement. Each and every component of this movement is carefully finished by hand at the Roger Dubuis Manufacture in Geneva.
This extremely beautiful incorporates a star-shaped bridge. It also features a micro-rotor, which is visible at 11 o’clock. Certified by the Poinçon de Genève, this avant-garde hyper luxury watch is made of innovative materials, such as DLC Titanium, both lighter and more luxurious than stainless steel. It has 60-hour power reserve.
Dressed in a black DLC titanium case with titanium container and rubber inlays, the Excalibur Spider Pirelli watch measures 45mm diameter and has a water resistance up to 50 meters.
With three additional kits in red, white or blue – the iconic Pirelli colour codes – the Excalibur Spider Pirelli transforms from full black to a pop of bold colour in a click. Available in a limited run of just 88 kits per colourway, these are timepieces crafted from race-winning tyres.
Filled with racing design codes, the inner design of the strap displays the recognisable Pirelli CinturatoTM Intermediate pattern and the additional colour kits are thicker than the base bezel to mirror the look and feel of the distinctive Pirelli tyres.
