Roger Dubuis invites Hypebeast, the premiere destination for contemporary culture and lifestyle, to co-create a new interpretation of the iconic Excalibur Monobalancier. The Excalibur Hypebeast Monobalancier stands out within the world of haute horlogerie.
The limited edition Excalibur Hypebeast Monobalancier keeps the shape of the watch’s signature star unchanged. Its dial, the flange and space around the micro-rotor are coated in navy blue – one of Hypebeast’s distinctive colors. The new watch is housed in a 42 mm case in radiant white ceramic, with a white strap. The process of taking ceramic from raw form to the distinctive Roger Dubuis’ case requires remarkable talent. The transformation takes 15 times longer than crafting the same case from gold.
The calibre of the Excalibur Hypebeast Monobalancier is an accomplishment of horological prowess. Roger Dubuis’ engineers increased the power reserve of the automatic RD720SQ to 72 hours, as well as optimized the micro-rotor to minimize its vibrations. The balance wheel inertia is doubled to improve stability and make it less sensitive to shocks. In the same way, better resistance over time as well as better efficiency and energy transmission are achieved by using a new lube and by optimizing the shape of the escapement wheel paired with adjustable pallet stones – both constructed from diamond-coated silicon. The new watch is certified by the Poinçon de Genève, one of the most demanding certifications in fine watchmaking. It comes on a white 3D embossed calf leather strap with Quick Release System for ultimate versatility.
The new masterpiece curated by Hypebeast is limited to 28 pieces only. Found on exclusive display within the HBX New York flagship store, it will be available for purchase in Roger Dubuis’ flagship boutiques and on its website.
