The famous Swiss watchmaker, Roger Dubuis, has just announced the launch of a powerful new partnership with Italdesign, a design and engineering company and brand based in Moncalieri, Italy. To kick-start the partnership in a grand manner, the world-renowned Italian designer and Roger Dubuis will be launching a special limited edition timepiece at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show in March this year. The exclusive, 8-piece series introduces the brand’s iconic Excalibur Spider Single Tourbillon dressed in Italian national colors. Its launch coincides with that of the Italdesign Hypercar.

The stunning new Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Italdesign Edition features a highly technical combination of shock resistant and lightweight materials, carbon and ceramic, paired with a black rubber strap with titanium adjustable double folding clasp. The watch picks up the emblematic features of Roger Dubuis skeleton watches, including their star-shaped movement design, tourbillon carriage shaped like a Celtic cross, and traditional hand-made finishing.

The Excalibur Spider Italdesign Edition is powered by the hand-wound Calibre RD505SQ, which is assembled from 197 components and 19 jewels. Finely adjusted in six positions, the skeleton movement reveals its plate and bridges circular grained and coated with NAC treatment. Small seconds are shown by the flying tourbillon carriage, which appears at 7:30 o’clock position. The movement beats at a frequency of 21,600 vph, and provides around 60 hours of power reserve.

The special Excalibur Spider Italdesign Edition features a specific color coding, evocative of Italy. The watch is fitted with red-tipped skeleton hands and red rubber vulcanized titanium crown, with colorful inclusions of the green, white and red of the Italian flag on the dial and rubber strap.
