Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Pirelli Single Flying Tourbillon
This timepiece features a Quick Release System on the strap and buckle enabling changes in a coupe of seconds!
Monaco marked the spot in May as motorsport and fine watchmaking enthusiasts alike had their fire ignited by an exciting double wave of the chequered flag. The first indicated the moment when the winner of the world-class motorsport event crossed the victory line. The second was the live digital launch of the second season of Roger Dubuis X Pirelli, embodied in the brand-new Excalibur Spider Pirelli Single Flying Tourbillon. Minutes after the race finish, this super high-spec model hit the watchmaking track with a strap matching the colour of the winning car tyres. Its adrenalin-pumping range of new design options will include a complementary Pit Stop Collector Box of interchangeable straps – each echoing the high-rev partnership between Roger Dubuis and the tyre maker.
This motorsports-inspired set contains seven different straps echoing the seven Pirelli tyre colours used for competitions during the previous season. Each conveys part of the Pirelli logo positioned on the side of every high-speed motor racing tyre and is engraved with the code used by Pirelli to track its winning tyres. The very same code appears on the Certificate of Authenticity signed by both Pirelli and Roger Dubuis.

Adding the final ultimate customer experience touch commensurate with the Perfect Fit Partnership ethos and designed to match the famous under three second pitstop on top motor racing circuits, the Excalibur Spider Pirelli Single Flying Tourbillon features a QRS (Quick Release System) on the strap and buckle enabling changes in… less than three seconds!

With a black DLC-coated titanium case, this boutique exclusive 28-piece limited edition features new trigger and bridge designs, along with a spectacular transparent view of the new RD508SQ hand-wound calibre with power reserve indicator and state-of-the-art black Astral Skeleton. Rimmed by speedometer-like second counters complete with automobile-inspired pointers, the single flying tourbillon is stationed at 7 o’clock, while the multi-coloured power-reserve indicator offers a cool nod to racing car cockpit fuel gauges. Minus the boutique edition strapbox, but with an additional strap to ring the changes, the Excalibur Spider Pirelli Single Flying Tourbillon will also be available in a version retailing in other specialised stores.
