Fluorescent details on the Excalibur Twofold Limited Edition are everything but the traditional…
Swiss watchmakers have spent much of the past two decades experimenting with materials they have borrowed from the world of automobiles, medicine or aeronautics. As a result, many watches feature unprecedented metallurgical combinations, silicone-enhanced mechanisms, and high-tech ceramic casings.
With its new Excalibur Twofold model, which is limited to just eight pieces, Roger Dubuis takes this whole story to a whole new level. The watch, which relies on a skeletonized double flying tourbillon, contains not one or two, but three world premieres that give it a spectacular personality. During the day, Excalibur Twofold is a contemporary white wristwatch with a bold open face, while in the evening, it transforms into a true conqueror of the universe.
For starters, the base of the model and its 45mm diameter housing are made of Mineral Composite Fiber – an ultra-white composite material that is made of 99.95 silicone developed by the famous brand. In addition, watchmakers have created a unique patented process when processing its mechanism so that they light up in the evening.
The gloss doesn’t end there though. The belt of this model is made of fluorocarbon rubber, which is equally glittering. In addition to the unusual material choices, the model carries the RD01SQ mechanism, which has received the Poincon de Geneve stamp as a major feature of its quality.
The price of this model is $276,000.
