Roger Dubuis – Excalibur Automatic Collection

The new Excalibur Automatic line from ROGER DUBUIS is an ode to power and aestheticism. Dynamic in its shapes, sharp angles and the force of its design, the Excalibur model is a concentration of all the characteristics of the collection combined with a perfect mechanism. The new Excalibur Collection is for the knights of the modern age.

The Excalibur Collection is therefore enriched by an automatic line that remains faithful to the features that have enforced the reputation of this flagship collection of the ROGER DUBUIS Manufacture. More urban, a touch more serene but every bit as dynamic with its tense lines, the collection is distinguished by its pure and uncompromising aestheticism.

The Excalibur Automatic for 2012 is to be manufactured in three models Pink Gold with brushed dial, Pink Gold with antracite dial and Steel.

Ensuring perfect comfort for the wearer, its pink-gold 42 mm diameter case brings out all the dazzling energy of its brushed sunray effect graphic dial, reinforced by elongated Roman numerals. This automatic line gains in lightness and symmetry through the absence of a crown-guard, but retains its powerful look thanks to its strong, bevelled angles. It is the same with the bezel, so typical of this collection, with its more delicate fluting that here reflects the “Dauphine” shape of the hour and minute hands. The impact of the dial is even more strongly marked by the large Roman numerals that radiate from the centre, and by the generously-dimensioned counter of the “small” seconds hand at 9 o’clock. The exterior flange supports the minute circle, interrupted by square applied markers at each full hour.

This pink-gold model is also proposed with an anthracite grey dial and Roman numerals in a slightly darker tone, which give it an extremely elegant and subtle appearance. The version in steel, fitted with a silvered dial, perfectly completes the collection.

 

 

 

 

 

 

At the heart of these elegant timepieces beats the RD620 calibre, designed, developed and produced by ROGER DUBUIS. This mechanical movement with automatic micro-rotot winding represents the new generation of ROGER DUBUIS mechanical movements, combining aesthetic qualities and performance, and based on the most advanced production technology. Visible through the sapphire crystal case-back, this movement incorporates 184 parts and offers hour, minute and small seconds functions. Decorated with “Geneva ribbing”, it beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz) and has a power reserve of 52 hours.
