Roger Dubuis: A Balance of Power

by Pressroom

Swiss luxury watchmaker Roger Dubuis ushers in the Year of the Dragon with the Excalibur Dragon Monotourbillon, showcasing precision and artistry in perfect harmony.

Roger Dubuis welcomes the Lunar New Year with the Excalibur Dragon Monotourbillon, a masterpiece blending timekeeping precision with artistic symbolism. Inspired by the Year of the Dragon, this limited edition timepiece reflects the legendary creature’s traits of intelligence, charisma, and confidence.

Crafted with meticulous precision, the dragon on the timepiece is composed of 27 brass pieces adorned with black lacquer and pink gold treatment. This intricate design spans 25 different levels, creating a captivating 3D effect that expresses volume and vitality.

Beneath the surface, the Monotourbillon Calibre RD512SQ is the heartbeat of the timepiece, showcasing Roger Dubuis’ commitment to horological excellence. The skeletonized movement, featuring the Maison’s signature monotourbillons, not only adds complexity but also demands extraordinary craftsmanship. The Flying Tourbillon, mounted on one side without a supporting bridge, is a showcase of both beauty and technical prowess.

The quest for perfection extends to the materials used – the lower tourbillon cage employs non-magnetic titanium, while the upper cage is made of mirror-polished Cobalt Chrome, which reduces the tourbillon’s weight by 16 percent. This not only enhances magnetic field resistance but also optimises the power reserve to an impressive 72 hours.

Limited to just 28 pieces, the Excalibur Dragon Monotourbillon stands as a rare and powerful tribute to the Year of the Dragon. The 42mm case, crafted from pink gold, houses a mesmerising dragon on the sapphire crystal caseback, which precisely matches the view from the front. The black calf-skin leather strap, equipped with a quick-release system, allows for personalised style and comfort.

In every facet, this timepiece exemplifies the fusion of performance and beauty, offering a truly exciting experience of Hyper Horology™. Roger Dubuis’ creation is a celebration of the dragon’s mythical power, a rarity that encapsulates the essence of this auspicious occasion with precision and artistry.
