EXCALIBUR SPIDER PIRELLI DOUBLE FLYING TOURBILLON
ROGER DUBUIS & PIRELLI !
With an Extravagant Sporty Look ROGER DUBUIS introduced (at the SIHH 2017) an original and very limited timepiece : The « EXCALIBUR SPIDER PIRELLI DOUBLE FLYING TOURBILLON »
Only 8 pieces will be produced and there is a reason behind it…
In fact, its strap features rubber inlays from certified Pirelli winning motorsport tyres having competed in real races! For that, the R&D department did some intense research to find the perfect composition. Many challenges were present! they had to remove the tyre smell, make it comfortable and safe for a daily use.
The Caliber RD105SQ is Stunning! Its Execution, Transparency, Poinçon de Genève certification, Mechanism…
There is no doubt on the high-end quality and know-how of the Manufacture. You might see some fine details aesthetically, for instance, The Two Flying Tourbillons & the Power reserve (at 9 o’clock) are inspired by automobile counters.
The relation between Motorsports and Watchmaking is well known and we like the fact that two big names joint forces to develop new ideas.
An impressive & unique way to actually wear a sample of a winning racing car on your wrist!
Well done! ROGER DUBUIS

Black rubber strap with, on top, an inlay combining RubberTech material, mixed with rubber from a set of the highest performing Pirelli tyres. The latter rubber used comes from a set of tyres which claimed victory at a mythical motorsport event in 2016. The inside of the rubber strap reproduces the mythical pattern of a Pirelli Intermediate tyre famous for its efficiency during races on humid or wet tracks
