Roger Dubuis has innovated in recent years by drawing inspiration from other industry fields. This has led to the cementing of partnerships with two other iconic names equally committed to delivering standout customer experiences – and the ensuing launch of a series of spectacular, emotion-fuelling, Geneva-hallmarked models that have clearly illustrated what happens when visionary engineers meet with incredible watchmakers.
In 2019, Roger Dubuis combines the best of everything it has with that of its partner industries, chosen for their reputations of being at the forefront of technology and equally determined to shatter existing R&D boundaries. The result is a one off – and totally unique – timepiece based on the Maison’s favourite platform of expression: Excalibur.
Inspired by partners Lamborghini Squadra Corse and Pirelli, the highly complicated Excalibur One-Off timepiece is inspired by the recently unveiled Lamborghini SC18 Alston supercar.
This is the first ever one-off hypercar created by the Lamborghini motorsport division exclusively developed for a client’s recreational use on the track. The futuristic Excalibur One-off timepiece features a design at the crossroads of modern art and innovative architecture and a calibre worthy of the most complex engine. Composed of an amazing variety of materials, this unique superlative-packed timepiece is truly representative of what Fine Watchmaking, a supercar manufacturer and an iconic tyre king can do.
Following the same design philosophy as Lamborghini Squadra Corse, Roger Dubuis engineers have thus created a timepiece inspired by the supercar manufacturer’s aesthetic codes and aggressive allure, namely clean, precise lines, great depth and an eye-catching show of lights. The compact calibre has been developed around a single frame like the tubular structure of a supercar.
