Swiss luxury watch brand Roger Dubuis has introduced a special edition Excalibur watch in partnership with tattoo artist Dr. Woo. This boutique exclusive creation is limited to eight pieces.
Mixing both creative territories of the artist and the Swiss hyper brand, this new timepiece is the new development of the Excalibur Original collection. The star-shaped bridge is replaced by a specific sapphire dial on each piece that displays a star ship journey’s graphic design by Dr. Woo, revealing his spider symbol on 8 different places.
A second dial in the back display a cosmic map as Dr Woo’s vision of time. The watch houses a calibre with improved performances: increased power reserve up to 72 hours thanks to tourbillon lower carriage made in titanium. Upper tourbillon carriage in cobalt chrome for better finishing: mirror polish. Both titanium and cobalt chrome are anti-magnetic.
The skeleton calibres manufactured by Roger Dubuis in Geneva are the essence of the expressive singularity of the Excalibur collection. Complying with the prestigious Poinçon de Genève certification, the Excalibur watches are designed like contemporary works of art. Every single component of this timepiece is finished by hand.
The case of the watch is made of EON GOLD, patented type of pink gold alloy which will tarnish less than standard pink gold and more resistant to challenging conditions such as salt water.
