For over 20 years, Geneva based watchmaker, Roger Dubuis has been revealing earth-shattering creations that demonstrate an extraordinary convergence of art and individualism. Defined by “no limit” innovation, technical prowess, demanding savoir-faire, stylistic audacity, and those non-conformist grand complications, RD is an unquestionable choice for an exclusive tribe of rebellious hedonists who want to enjoy life to the fullest and who know that Roger Dubuis will offer them unforgettable and larger than life experiences. What makes these timepieces more coveted is the Poinçon de Genève or Geneva Seal certification they are awarded for their provenance and quality.
Roger Dubuis’ first drop of 2020 is the Excalibur Twofold, featuring the watchmakers’ signature double flying tourbillon. This incredible horological creation represents three world premieres. With a 45mm case, the glacial touch of Excalibur Twofold is enhanced by the bezel and the case created in Mineral Composite Fiber (MCF), a ultra-white composite material made of 99.95% silica and, specifically developed by Roger Dubuis. A never-yet seen prowess in the world of Haute Horlogerie. The Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) process mastered by Roger Dubuis engineers enables the Manufacture to play with this unique Mineral Composite Fiber.
For the first time, a patented process was developed to light up every angle of the upper plate of the movement composed of MCF. Luminescent at night and lasting 60% longer than standard luminescent material commonly used.
Finally, the Twofold strap adds another exciting touch. It is made from a specific FKM rubber and is also luminescent, based on a world-first technology named “LumiSuperBiwiNova™” that makes part of the strap luminescent glow in the dark like a nocturnal signature.
Sure, Roger Dubuis’ designs can be polarising, but they are never really set out to please everyone. And that’s exactly what makes them a respected force in the industry. The Excalibur Twofold is offered in a limited run of 8 pieces.
