EXCALIBUR HURACÀN PERFORMANTE
Launched during the SIHH 2019, the « Huracàn » timepieces are Tremendous
It’s a collaboration between two huge names : LAMBORGHINI SQUADRA CORSE & ROGER DUBUIS. I would say that the overall shapes of the pieces have a Roger Dubuis’ Sporty-Futuristic signature with very distinctive features such as : Cut bezels lines, Three lugs, Light materials, visibility on the regulator and more… In short, if you liked the Excalibur Aventador, you’ll feel 100% home with this Huracàn Performante.
The big difference being its price range. Well, it’s still a Luxury product as we’re talking about more than 50K but i appreciate the brand’s effort to open a little bit the « gates ». The standard versions are quickly recognizable thanks to the 12° balance wheel at 12 o’clock and i was quite happy to discover that exclusive developments (like Double Tourbillons) can be produced as unique pieces, on demand.
In terms of indications, you’ll find a central seconds/hour/minutes hands and a date window at 6 o’clock (between the two barrels). These offer 60 hours power reserve and bring a lovely animation while you turn the crown!
The back is quite nice. A Lamborghini wheel replica is in fact the rotor and the inscriptions on the sapphire glass are incredibly clean (rare enough to be mentioned).
I love the concept, the execution, and the brand desire to perhaps let a new segment of people have access to those Marvelous creations so Well done! Roger Dubuis.
