The Excalibur Spider Huracán Monobalancier is inspired by the enduring partnership between Roger Dubuis and Lamborghini Squadra Corse. This watch seamlessly fuses the worlds of haute horlogerie and high-performance supercars.
At first glance, the Excalibur Spider Huracán Monobalancier encapsulates the essence of motorsport with its dynamic design. Drawing inspiration from Lamborghini’s racing heritage, the timepiece proudly sports the iconic red, white, and blue colorway – a nod to the emblematic racing liveries that have left their mark on the track for decades. The design ethos of this watch is clear: pay tribute to the rich history of racing while embracing the cutting-edge aesthetics that define both Roger Dubuis and Lamborghini.
Behind its captivating exterior lies the heart of the timepiece, the RD630 Calibre movement. This movement is a testament to the collaboration between visionary engineers and meticulous watchmakers, resulting in a 60-hour power reserve that is both robust and reliable. The RD630 Calibre embodies the essence of performance, technology, and aesthetics, mirroring the qualities that define both the supercar and watchmaking industries.
The Monobalancier’s design is a symphony of subtle details. The calibre’s shape is reminiscent of supercar air intakes, and the twin barrels, positioned between 5 and 7 o’clock, are a signature feature borrowed from the Lamborghini Huracán watches. However, the most daring element is the tilted balance wheel at 12 o’clock. Just as in the world of supercar racing, where minor adjustments can lead to monumental differences in performance, this 12° angled balance wheel showcases Roger Dubuis’ ability to transform ordinary components into revolutionary features. This tilt not only enhances performance but also maintains the watch’s proportions, demonstrating an unparalleled attention to detail.
The Excalibur Spider Huracán Monobalancier doesn’t just astonish from the front; its rear view is equally captivating. The 360° oscillating weight, reminiscent of the supercar’s wheel rims, creates a mesmerizing optical speed effect when in motion, captivating the eyes of onlookers with every twist and turn.
The blend of legacy racing colors and modern materials is a hallmark of Roger Dubuis’ approach. The 45mm case, constructed from black DLC Titanium, strikes the perfect balance between strength and lightness, offering optimal protection for the exquisite calibre within. The white bezel, crafted from the innovative Mineral Composite Fibre (MCF), boasts remarkable properties – it’s 13% lighter than carbon and 2.5 times lighter than ceramic, demonstrating Roger Dubuis’ dedication to groundbreaking materials.
Even the crown of the Excalibur Spider Huracán Monobalancier reflects supercar influence, resembling the wheel nut of the Lamborghini Huracán. With a red racing stripe and winglet details, the crown not only adds a striking visual touch but also ensures a firm grip.
The watch’s strap is a masterstroke in both design and functionality. The blue strap with red perforations, combined with calfskin leather inlays and a Pirelli Trofeo R tyre pattern on the underside’s black rubber, exemplifies Roger Dubuis’ commitment to comfort and style. The Quick Release System allows wearers to effortlessly switch straps, adding a touch of personalization to this already distinctive timepiece.
The Excalibur Spider Huracán Monobalancier is not just a watch; it’s a limited-edition masterpiece with only 88 pieces available. Its exclusivity mirrors the rarity of supercars, making it a must-have for enthusiasts who seek unparalleled style, performance, and craftsmanship.
