Roger Dubuis dedicates most of 2017 to its Excalibur line. The line consists of several new models, two of which in cooperation with Formula 1 tyre manufacturer Pirelli. We have seen the exceptional Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Carbon Skeleton Flying Tourbillon. This Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Carbon Skeleton Automatic is a more affordable one. Although it is still 60k plus.
We must say, this Excalibur Spider Carbon Skeleton isn’t hard to miss in its red and black color scheme. The case is a typical, but skeletonized, Excalibur Spider type case. The coolest feature by far is that the movement plate and bridges have all been made from carbon. Like the Flying Tourbillon it is T700 carbon which is more rigid than regular carbon. This also limits vibrations and helps with the watch’s precision.
