Roger Dubuis Excalibur Huracán Skeleton
Part of Roger Dubuis' ongoing partnership with Lamborghini Squadra Corse, this 'Excalibur Huracán' watch strikes the perfect balance between innovative technology and time-honoured haute horlogerie techniques. Housed in a sleek 45mm DLC-coated titanium case, it's powered by a RD630 calibre automatic movement inspired by the automotive world - the strut bar-designed bridge recalls the ones you'd find in the V10 engine of the Lamborghini Huracán, too. The skeletonised dial and exhibition case back reveal the intricate inner workings.
Roger Dubuis Excalibur 45 Double Flying Tourbillon
Extreme technical ingenuity is the creed of Roger Dubuis. With a substantial 45mm EON gold case, this limited edition iteration of the 'Excalibur' watch showcases the feat of the 108-SQ double flying tourbillion calibre with a skeletonised dial, while chamfered edges sharpen the graphic lines of the architecture. Equally impressive in performance as in visuals, it's certified with the Poinçon de Genève, whose seal takes 360 hours of engraving alone to effect.
Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Flying Tourbillon
Roger Dubuis describes this watch as "skeletonised to the extreme". Limited to a run of just 88 pieces, it's been expertly manufactured in Switzerland from DLC-coated titanium with an open-worked dial and exhibition case back that exposes the intricacies of its 510SQ complication and small-scale flying tourbillon - a highly complicated feat of horology. The hands and indices are made from 18-karat white gold with Super-LumiNova® for legibility.
Roger Dubuis Excalibur Blacklight Limited Edition
After dark, the impressive architecture of Roger Dubuis' 'Excalibur Blacklight' watch is illuminated by neon streaks of light. They're crafted from lab-grown sapphire crystal - the same material typically used as bearings in a movement - innovatively engineered into fine tubes interlacing the skeletonised dial, making it all the more dynamic. It's certainly worth admiring - the movement takes no less than 530 hours to produce, including 170 alone for the Poinçon de Genève engraving. Set on a bracelet strap, this 18-karat pink gold limited edition is set with diamonds, rubies and sapphires tracing the lines of its bezel and micro-rotor.

Manufactured with a 45mm GreyTech titanium case, it's powered by a Swiss-made RD630 automatic movement that has a 12° angle balance escapement, rim-like rotor and twin-barrel power supply. The neon-green numerals and second hand match the stitching on the rubber and Alcantara® strap.
