  • Roger Dubuis - Excalibur Spider Pirelli – Double Flying Tourbillon


    What makes for a champion watch strap? For Roger Dubuis, it’s when the material has proven its toughness, which is why the avant garde watchmaker has teamed up with Pirelli, Formula 1’s sole tyre supplier, to use the rubber inlays from cars that have won Grand Prix races. Unveiled at this year’s Salon International De La Haute Horlogerie in Geneva, the Excalibur Spider Pirelli – Double Flying Tourbillon features speedometer-like seconds counters and automobile-inspired pointers. Other racing motifs include multi-coloured power-reserve indicators, which are a nod to race-car cockpit fuel gauges, and tread motifs reminiscent of Pirelli’s classic Cinturato tyre. The watch is limited to eight pieces.
