Excalibur Huracán Performante

Witness to madness

The Watch Quote™ - December 7th, 2018



Every day is a competition day for Roger Dubuis, filled with challenges to be taken on and ambitious goals to be reached. Like Lamborghini Squadra Corse, the Maison is firmly committed to cutting-edge performance, ferocious groundbreaking technology and super-sleek aesthetics, all fuelled by a high-impact R&D vision and focused on delivering bold customer experiences. This set of common denominators put them on a fast track to a roaring encounter where sparks were bound to fly.




Feeling the thrill

For individuals committed to pushing their own limits and defying all known rules, Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse motorsport department and Manufacture Roger Dubuis have opted to pool their knowledge and expertise. When visionary engineers meet with incredible watchmakers, the inevitable surge of adrenaline results in models “Powered by raging mechanics”, of which the first was unleashed on September 20th 2017. One year into these high-octane joint endeavours, the Italian aesthetic flair continues to merge with Swiss precision and mechanical instruments.




In it to win it

In 2018, inspired by Lamborghini Squadra Corse and its unique automobile aesthetic showcased in the Huracán Performante the watchmakers of the Manufacture have developed a timepiece brimming with racing design codes. One of the most striking features of the aggressive Excalibur Huracán Performante timepiece is its brand-new ‘engine’: the RD630 movement with its 12° inclined balance wheel representing the calibre signature associated with Lamborghini. Taking strong visual cues from the shapes on which the supercar is based, this timepiece notably gives pride of place to the hexagon. A versatile geometrical figure used to construct the volume of the supercar, it appears throughout the timepiece in various guises and is notably reproduced to symbolise strut bars. The stand-out half hexagon appearing on the louvered air intakes of the Lamborghini Huracán Performante are repeated as miniature versions visible through the openwork dial of the Excalibur Huracán Performante timepiece.



Other special decoration includes a new crown inspired by racing nuts on supercar wheels, a twin-barrel ‘energy tank’ and a multi-material ‘spoiler’, used for the decorative openworked bridges. Viewed from the back, even the complete circular weight of the automatic movement emulates the design of the wheel rims of Lamborghini’s Huracán family. Offering the same blend of performance, lightness and security as its namesake supercar, the Excalibur Huracán Performante timepiece sports distinctive “Technical Titan Grey” livery complete with signature bright yellow accents.




Getting a grip

When visionary engineers meet with incredible watchmakers, the result is also a Perfect Fit on every level. Resolutely in the vanguard of technology, Pirelli has been partnering with Lamborghini for more than half a century and all Lamborghini sports and road cars are naturally equipped with cutting-edge Pirelli tyres. The latter rule the road on the Huracàn Performante supercar, and now also ensure a perfect hold on the wrist, since the lining of the genuine Alcantara strap of the Excalibur Huracán Performante watch crosses the finish line with a rubber inlay featuring the Pirelli P Zero Trofeo™ R tyre-pattern design. This custom-made tyre enhance the driving pleasure and represents the state of the art technology for the ultimate performance on track thanks to Pirelli’s centennial racing expertise.




Life in the fast lane

Because there is nothing as powerful as real-life experiences, the 88 privileged owners of this stunning timepiece can also look forward to life in the fast lane with a ride as privileged spectators from the inside of the Super Trofeo.
