Trust a fearless maison like Roger Dubuis to whip up a stir wherever they track — and it's at London's Harrods that the watch manufacture has set up a secondary home that first saw the inauguration of their latest Black Velvet timepiece. Riding on this haute horlogerie parade, the label unveils another enterprising timepiece within Harrods' halls: The Excalibur Spider Skeleton Flying Tourbillon with Black Spinnels.
Exemplary of the innovative DNA that characterises Roger Dubuis, the Excalibur is a fitting pièce de résistance to debut within the curated space, its 45mm diametre dial gleaming a dark allure contrasted by its skeleton tourbillon bearing a stylised star. A masterfully crafted watch at a single glance, this never-before-seen timepiece sports 60 baguette-cut black spinels studded onto its rubberised titanium casing, a feat achieved after two years of dedicated research by gem-setting expert Pascal Vincent Vaucher.
A thing of beauty and durability, this limited-edition watch is a horlogerie star; decorated with a dial of black DLC titanium skeleton flange that supports its RD505SQ hand-wound calibre that powers a pair of cutout hands in gold and black. A flying tourbillon perched at the 7.30 mark adorned with a Celtic cross carriage augments its arresting visuals. Certified Poinçon de Genève, the Excalibur Spider Skeleton Flying Tourbillon with Black Spinnels is pure technical complexity, embedded with Roger Dubuis' mark for manifesting daring unconventionality.
The 8-piece limited edition Excalibur Spider Skeleton Flying Tourbillon with Black Spinnels is available exclusively at the Roger Dubuis x Harrods pop-up.
