Roger Dubuis dares to be rare and races with Pirelli

Roger Dubuis and Pirelli fast-tracked a new lap side by side in their adrenaline-charged partnership this May, with a new iteration of the recently launched Excalibur Spider Pirelli watch.

When the engineers from two separate ­fields share their knowledge, comprehensive know-how, sophisticated research and innovative drive, the result is an exclusive series of the Excalibur Spider Pirelli – Automatic Skeleton.

In the latest and colourful new lap of this luxury alliance, the two Excalibur Spider Pirelli Yellow and Red feature the colours of the iconic tyre logo in a stunning complement to the proudly unmistakable features of the Excalibur line.

In chromatic tune with these bold new timepieces, the Pirelli Color Edition tyres made their debut at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show. It is no coincidence that Pirelli, taking inspiration from its longstanding experience in racing competitions – where the colouring of the tyres identi­ties the different compounds – will soon be applying colour to certain road tyres so as to emphasise their uniqueness.

Distinguished by a black and blue, red or yellow skeletonised range, the colour coding of these vibrant new Excalibur Spider Pirelli models is further accentuated by a titanium black DLC crown over-moulded with matching-colour stitching on the straps.

And as an ultimate nod to the winning streak that is embedded in the DNA of these two exceptional brands, the straps of these ruggedly reliable timepieces are manufactured from winning Pirelli motorsport tyre rubber, and their interior features the distinctive tread pro, issued in an 88-piece limited edition, the robust 45mm skeleton case of the Excalibur Spider Automatic Skeleton provides a perfect frame for the brand’s bestselling Calibre RD820SQ.

In South Africa, the collection is available at The Vault, in Melrose Arch, Johannesburg.
