Luxury watchmakers Roger Dubuis and Lamborghini Squadra Corse have partnered together once again to create the stunning Excalibur Spider Countach DT/X ..
The Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Countach DT/X is proof of what happens when visionary engineers meet with incredible watchmakers. Moving from track to wrist, its unparalleled aesthetics take all the signature design elements of the namesake car – the essential line running from front to rear, or the sharp and futuristic angles.
In homage to the strong partnership between the two rule-breakers, the distinctive geometry of the Periscopio roof and NACA air intakes of the supercar are found and scaled to size within this striking timepiece. The red and black interior pattern of the Countach is also found on the inside of the watch engravings, parts of the glass, and its inner strap too. Finished in pearlescent Bianco Siderale white, the same colour that Ferruccio Lamborghini specified for his own Countach.
Shaped to maximise breathability and movement, the skeleton three-dimensional rubber strap is ultra-ergonomic and formed of several materials inspired by those of its supercar alter-ego, while the technology is inspired by another ground-breaking partner: tyre expert Pirelli.
To capture the exact shade of the new Countach for the case and calibre décor, Roger Dubuis uses its own exclusive high-technology Mineral Composite Fibre (MCF) material, also 2.5 times lighter than ceramic and 13 per cent lighter than SMC carbon.
Powered by a caliber fully developed and manufactured in-house, built to perform with the same efficiency as the supercar’s engine, the Excalibur Spider Countach DT/X boasts a truly impressive mechanical flying double tourbillon, both tourbillons being tilted at an exact 90° angle to each other to compensate the effects of gravity not only horizontally but also vertically. In addition, the use of lightweight materials to create the tourbillon cages ensures 60 hours of power reserve.
A complex engineering achievement pursued in the spirit of offering ultimate precision to its wearer, sealed with the stamp of excellence in the form of the Poinçon de Genève.
