Need for Speed: Roger Dubuis Unveils Its Newest Innovations at SIHH 2019

roger dubuis sihh 2019 01

It came as no surprise that the Roger Dubuis display was one of the most photographed presentations at SIHH this year: The manufacture, after all, has managed to seamlessly combine two of the most obsession-worthy things on the planet—cars and watches—and has constantly created buzzworthy pieces backed by both technical excellence and really, really cool campaigns.

Here, we run down three of the manufacture’s best releases at Geneva.

Excalibur One-Off

Inspired by the first ever custom hypercar created by the auto manufacturer’s Squadra Corse motorsports division, the Lamborghini SC18 Alston, this futuristic beauty brings together modern art and groundbreaking technology. The Excalibur One-Off is a ceramic and carbon fibre stunner that, in true Roger Dubuis fashion, is a testament to fine watchmaking, with its openworked dial, purpose-built RD106SQ movement’s double flying tourbillons, jumping hours counter (just like on a Lambo!), and a function selector all but pulled from the SC18 Alston.

Excalibur Huracán Performante

Don’t write off supercars just yet, because the new Excalibur Huracán Performante is an ode to the Lamborghini with which it shares its name. This limited-edition piece, of which only 88 are available, takes every aspect of its inspiration and translates it into a fabulous piece that screams for attention on the wrist. A skeletonized spider case in titanium houses the RD630 calibre—which features an angled balance wheel inspired by the revving of V10 engines—while the strap harks to iconic Pirelli tyre design. Missed out? An unlimited production model—which, of course, features changes like a less ornate dial and strap—is also available.

Excalibur Shooting Star

Talk about a study in contrasts: we adore the juxtaposition of details like diamonds, pink gold, mother of pearl, enamel, and colored alligator against the sharp, sleek, Roger Dubuis movement. But this watch isn’t just gorgeous; it also houses a high complication in the form of the RD510SQ calibre’s skeleton flying tourbillon. Two years in development, this diminutive (well, for Roger Dubuis) limited edition 36mm piece, available in pink and blue, is all at once luxurious and ingenious.
