Introducing the new Excalibur Spider Pirelli, the first Roger Dubuis fully versatile Hyper Horology timepiece fuelled by adrenaline and crafted with winning motorsport tire rubber. The latest Roger Dubuis innovation to emerge from an exclusive collaboration with Pirelli, Excalibur Spider Pirelli, shows what happens when the finest minds from different industries share their unrivaled know-how breakthroughs and research and boundless creativity.
Driven by a desire to create adrenaline-charged masterpieces for a fearless tribe, serial innovator Roger Dubuis and motorsport performance pioneer Pirelli present the newest interpretation of the Excalibur Spider collection, which sees iconic calibers heightened by interchangeable straps that features rubber inlays from certified race-winning Pirelli tires.
Inspired by the renowned motorsport Pit Stop, each new Excalibur Spider Pirelli element is interchangeable, from strap to crown and bezel – all with a simple click. A Roger Dubuis world-premiere, not only is this an extremely customizable timepiece, but it also features innovative lock technology.
With an uncompromising focus on a clicking sensation and sound both reassuring and thrilling, the Quick Release System on the strap and crown is now taken to the next level at the bezel, with a precise position alignment that fixes the clock with one click.
With a caliber that includes Roger Dubuis’ first automatic skeleton, the transparent view of its self-winding movement is held directly on the inimitable Roger Dubuis star. It also features a micro-rotor, one reduced to its strict essence at 11 o’clock, turning seamlessly with the wrist. The perfect balance of weight to wind the RD820SQ is further achieved by using innovative materials, such as DLC Titanium, both lighter and more luxurious than stainless steel.
With three additional kits in red, white or blue – the iconic Pirelli color codes – the Excalibur Spider Pirelli transforms from full black to a pop of bold color in a click. Available in a limited run of just 88 kits per colorway, these are timepieces crafted from race-winning tires for the wrists of life’s winners. Brimming with racing design codes, the inner design of the strap displays the recognizable Pirelli Cinturato Intermediate pattern.
