Launch of the power-packed Excalibur Millésime timepiece

Modern and innovative interpretations of traditional sophisticated complications

The Watch Quote™ - December 24th, 2018

Renowned for drawing inspiration from other power industries such as aeronautics or aerospace, Roger Dubuis takes pride in pushing every possible technical limit both in terms of materials and complications to create the ultimate in unique timepieces. Within this mindset, the forceful and daring Excalibur collection timepiece is Roger Dubuis’ favourite platform of expression.

Reinterpreted complications meet 21st century technology

Now welcoming a highly refined complication, the Excalibur Millésime timepiece – belonging to the brand’s hyperwatch segment – is the latest embodiment of this preference. It reflects the key aspect of an exclusive collection that aims to offer modern and innovative interpretations of traditional sophisticated complications. A fascinating ‘audible complication’, the Minute Repeater is one of the most iconic and inspiring of all, as well as one of the most difficult to develop and perfect.

Extreme complexity and stunning design make an ideal match in this one-of-a-kind timepiece embodying a veritable tribute to Fine Watchmaking. Powder metallurgy technology has enabled the use of CarTech Micro-Melt BioDur CCMTM (® in the USA) – a 21st century alloy used in high-tech industries such as the automotive, aeronautical and aerospace sectors – endowing this exceptional watch with significantly better resistance to wear and tear than stainless steel. Additionally, CarTech Micro-Melt BioDur CCMTM (® in the USA) also displays the valuable property of remaining bright and shiny even when scratched. Its mirror-like properties enable it to collect as much light as possible, while offering the strength of metal enabling it to handle extreme conditions.

A modern masterpiece

Excalibur Millésime RDDBEX0668

Aside from this incredible technology, the 45mm-diameter Excalibur Millésime timepiece is unique from every perspective. Featuring two micro-rotors, it is one of the rare models to incorporate both a single flying tourbillon and minute repeater. An open dial with an intriguingly sophisticated two-level construction both reveals the inner workings of the automatic movement and gives the watch eye-catching depth. A bright blue alligator leather strap offers a snappy finish to match the dial detail. As befits its outstanding level of quality, the Excalibur Millésime timepiece bears the Poinçon de Genève hallmark, the ultimate standard of watchmaking excellence.
