Roger Dubuis Excalibur Huracán
Along with the Excalibur One-Off unique piece, Roger Dubuis unveiled the Excalibur Huracán inspired by the iconic Huracán supercar by Lamborghini.
Tailgating the Excalibur One-off timepiece at this year’s SIHH and offering a whole new experience Roger Dubuis style, the 2019 line-up also includes a new pair of raging steeds from the Excalibur Huracán stable inspired by this Lamborghini Huracán supercar which represents a fusion of authentic design and state-of-the-art mechanical technology. These timepieces reflect the aesthetic codes of their motorised alter ego and its hexagonal signature in particular.

Visible through the titanium sapphire crystal case back of the Excalibur Huracán timepieces, throbs another powerful new driver. The second in the brand’s collection to be developed for the partnership with Lamborghini Squadra Corse, the skeleton automatic RD630 caliber offers a 12° angled balance wheel representing the movement signature associated with Lamborghini Squadra Corse – a visual impression further accentuated by the honeycomb structure also typical of the automobile world. The 360° oscillating weight inspired by the rim of the Huracán supercar creates an optical illusion when rotating rapidly, reproducing the same kind of speed effect as a supercar wheel. The sprung balance has been turned around in comparison to a traditional mechanical movement to ensure that wearers enjoy the full benefit of seeing the heart of their timepiece beating. The upper calibre features a strut-bar designed bridge recalling those found on the V10 engine of the Lamborghini Huracán supercar. Taking the Maison’s cutting-edge skeleton concept to new heights, a cryptic date-disc reveals the date only when passing through its dedicated aperture and cannot be decoded through the back. Combined with a racy allure enhanced by the crown evoking a supercar wheel nut, an impressive 60-hour power reserve ensures that these contenders are in it for the long haul.
Resolutely in the vanguard of technology, Pirelli has been partnering with Lamborghini for more than half a century and all Lamborghini sports and road cars are naturally equipped with cutting-edge Pirelli tyres. The Excalibur Huracán timepiece is mounted on a bi-material strap featuring a black rubber base, grey Alcantara® inlay and black stitching. This rugged watchband is secured by adjustable folding buckle complete with a quick release system.
