Roger Dubuis has announced its newest watch with 366 components in its calibre, 52 hourse of power reserve and water resistance of 5m. Its new Excalibur Spider Double Flying Tourbillon, certified under the Poinçon de Genève (Geneva seal).
Like all the other Excalibur Spider watches, the new Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Double Flying Tourbillon features a heavily skeletonized dial. The skeletonization is expertly done, and from the front, one can make out a large star-shaped bridge that supports the mainspring barrel.
To the left at around 9 o’clock, there’s a power reserve indicator that has been done up in the style of a fuel gauge. Incidentally, the power reserve gauge is a new element that is only present on the second generation Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Double Flying Tourbillon watches.
At 5 and 7 o’clock, you have the two stars of the watch – the twin flying tourbillons. These two tourbillons spin at a rate of a revolution per minute and double up as running seconds displays. Surrounding the two tourbillons are multi-colored seconds tracks that have been styled after the speedometers found in race cars.
The movement within is the caliber RD105SQ. which is made up 366 components and beats at 3Hz, so you can expect a very high level of timekeeping and finishing.
Limited to only 28 units, this special iteration of the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Double Flying Tourbillon watch will set you back a cool $267,000.
