Roger Dubuis, the Swiss hyper watch manufacturer, presents Excalibur Blacklight Monobalancier, a limited edition series in white gold boasting vibrant colors, gem-set bezel, open-worked movement and surprising luminous details.
Limited to 28 pieces, this boutique exclusive creation takes inspiration from the art world and reveals the innovation capacity of Roger Dubuis.
During the day, colored micro-beams are spread inside the calibre, placed like rays of light going through the mechanism. Under UV light, the micro-beams are luminescent, like neon tubes glowing in a two faces sculpture revealing its full potential only under specific circumstances.
Inside beats a self-winding mechanical calibre with improved performances: increased power reserve up to 72 hours thanks to a gear train toothing and escapement optimization through its geometry. It also offers improved durability thanks to new lube, and increased precision thanks to 4Hz frequency.
Blacklight microbeams turn tridimensional to fit the iconic star shape, and are enhanced by UV paint to glow under UV light.
The bi-material strap with a rubber base and a bright yellow calf inlay makes the whole watch even more acidulous and trendy.
