Renowned luxury watchmaker Roger Dubuis unveils the Excalibur Dragon Monotourbillon, a captivating limited edition masterpiece for the Year of the Dragon. This horological gem seamlessly blends tradition with innovation, showcasing the Maison’s dedication to flawless design and masterful craftsmanship in just 28 exclusive pieces.
In a nod to the dragon’s dominance over water, Roger Dubuis has unleashed waves of innovation, encapsulated within a design that epitomizes freedom and expression.
The Excalibur Dragon Monotourbillon stands as a testament to the Maison’s unrestrained spirit, offering a timepiece that transcends the ordinary and invites the wearer to explore the boundaries of imagination.
Unlike its predecessor, the Excalibur Dragon Monotourbillon takes a more abstract approach to depicting this legendary creature. Crafted with meticulous precision, the dragon emerges from 27 individual pieces of brass, adorned with black lacquer on the sides and a pink gold treatment on the polished top surface. These intricate pieces, set on 25 different levels, create a 3D vision that radiates volume and vitality.
While the dragon commands attention with its visual allure, the Excalibur Dragon Monotourbillon is not merely a canvas of artistic expression. It houses the formidable Monotourbillon Calibre RD512SQ, a testament to Roger Dubuis’ commitment to pushing the boundaries of watchmaking.
The monotourbillon, a marvel invented in 1801 to counteract the effects of gravitational force, is a complex challenge in watchmaking. Roger Dubuis takes a unique approach by showcasing its monotourbillon within a skeletonized movement—an intricate task that demands unparalleled craftsmanship.
Since 2008, the Maison has redefined skeletonisation, using it as the starting point for each design rather than a consequence. This approach ensures that even with high complications like the tourbillon, the calibers maintain a lightness and purity, distinguishing them in the world of haute horlogerie.
To achieve an optimal balance between form and function, the Excalibur Dragon Monotourbillon incorporates a lower tourbillon cage made of non-magnetic titanium and an upper tourbillon cage in mirror-polished Cobalt Chrome.
This strategic use of materials not only enhances resistance to magnetic fields but also optimizes the power reserve to an impressive 72 hours.
Limited to a mere 28 pieces, the Excalibur Dragon Monotourbillon stands as Roger Dubuis’ powerful tribute to the Year of the Dragon. It is a rare creation that marries performance and beauty, offering a glimpse into the Maison’s dedication to flawless design and masterful craftsmanship.
The Excalibur Dragon Monotourbillon is not just a watch; it is a symphony of precision, a dance of complexity, and an ode to the spirit of the dragon. In celebrating this auspicious occasion, Roger Dubuis invites aficionados to embark on a journey where timekeeping becomes an art, and each glance at the wrist is an encounter with elegance unleashed.
