he skeleton calibres manufactured by Roger Dubuis in Geneva are the essence of the expressive singularity of the Excalibur collection. Complying with one of the most respected certifications of Haute Horlogerie, the Poinçon de Genève, the Excalibur watches are designed like contemporary works of art.
One of the latest developments in the Excalibur collection is a calibre with improved performances: increased power reserve up to 72 hours thanks to a new gear train toothing and escapement optimization through its geometry, improved durability thanks to new lube, and increased precision thanks to 4hz frequency.
Roger Dubuis is now collaborating with Hajime Sorayama to release a new Excalibur Monobalancier mixing both creative territories of the artist and the brand. The star-shaped bridge redesigned by Sorayama, turns curvy and fully polished - so do the titanium case and bracelet, like an echo of his metallic 3D sculptures. The micro rotor displays a moiré effect, with a fixed fringed sapphire glass and a mobile engraved metallic part, to remind the artist’s obsession about light reflection. The white lacquered box is adorned with hot-stamped Roger Dubuis with Sorayama font.
