Roger Dubuis - Supreme lightness meets optimal durability

Carbon rules

In 2019, Roger Dubuis pushes the watchmaking dimension to new extremes, skilfully mastering the use of daring materials such as carbon. Drawing inspiration from other industries such as technologies and art, the result is a series of boundary-breaking timepieces in terms of aesthetics and technology, designed for connoisseurs of exceptional objects. Hot off the Roger Dubuis R&D pipeline, fans of avantgarde watchmaking can thus look forward to the introduction of the innovative ultralight  Excalibur Spider Carbon3.

Massive presence

For the first time, Roger Dubuis has created a timepiece offering a full carbon structure. From the case to the calibre via the bracelet, the  Excalibur Spider Carbon3  is mainly made of multi-layer carbon. This mechanical prowess, playing with the many constraints of carbon in such thin dimensions, enables even further weight reduction. Light and comfortable, the  Excalibur Spider Carbon3  clocks in at an astounding 81 grams. In a paradox of the kind so dear to Roger Dubuis’ complex heart, the  Excalibur Spider Carbon3 also features another heavy complication and emblem of Roger Dubuis’ haute horlogerie mastery: the skeleton flying tourbillon. Taking this difficult sleight of the Maison’s expertise to the next level, the all-important upper cage of this not-to-be-missed opus is also made of carbon. Superlight and super comfortable while making its massive presence felt in no uncertain terms, this boutique exclusive is limited to just 28 pieces worldwide.

Because, no matter which way one looks at it, Roger Dubuis never does anything by halves, the  Excalibur Spider Carbon3  is accompanied by an interchangeable rubberTech strap and crown and is Poinçon de Genève certified.
