Roger Dubuis redresses the Excalibur Spider Huracán in Ceramic Composite Fibre (CCF) and enhances the look with a frosty white case. The watch boasts raging mechanics and super-sleek aesthetics.
The RD630 caliber is elevated by CCF, a high-technology material inspired by other ground-breaking industries and used in the production of space rockets. Following months of research and development, Roger Dubuis created its own CCF material. The independent Manufacture discovered that combining resin with resistant ceramic fibers could produce an entirely new and exceptionally light material twenty percent lighter than carbon and with a distinctive white marble effect. Used to create its white case and as embellishment within the movement itself, the new Excalibur Spider Huracán is a real achievement.
Powered by an automatic RD630 calibre, the 45-mm diameter Excalibur Spider Huracán is inspired by the Lamborghini Huracán. With a honeycomb motif made famous by the supercar, the hexagonal dashboard of the Lamborghini Huracán is reflected in the timepiece. Twin barrels and a 12° tilted balance wheel represent the movement signature associated with Lamborghini Squadra Corse. When seen from the back, the semi-skeletonized movement shows the 360° oscillating rim weight that reproduces the like-for-like speed effect of a Huracán wheel rim. A crown inspired by the supercar’s racing nuts is paired with an upper calibre strut-bar design bridge reminiscent of those found on the Lamborghini Huracán V10 engine itself. A Quick Release System on the buckle and strap ensures the watch is easily interchangeable.
The watch’s upper flange and hands are filled with Super-Luminova™. The same material is also used in the timepiece’s tilted surfaces, deposited on the strut-bars thanks to an innovative process first used in a Roger Dubuis world-premiere last year. Likewise, a vulcanization process known as SuperBiwiNova® melts Super-Luminova™ directly inside of the watches’ white rubber inlay strap to create an impressive finish.
The timepiece is limited to just 88 pieces.
