Roger Dubuis: Excalibur Twofold26 March 2020
Roger Dubuis presents Excalibur Twofold, a new interpretation of its signature movement with the double flying tourbillon.
The new Excalibur Twofold represents three world premieres. With a 45mm case, the glacial touch is enhanced by the bezel and the case created in Mineral Composite Fiber (MCF), an ultra-white composite material made of 99.95% silica and, specifically developed by Roger Dubuis. A never-yet seen prowess in the world of Haute Horlogerie. The Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) process mastered by Roger Dubuis engineers enables the Manufacture to play with this unique Mineral Composite Fiber.
For the first time, a patented process was developed to light up every angle of the upper plate of the movement composed of MCF. Luminescent at night and lasting 60% longer than standard luminescent material commonly used.
Lastly, the Twofold strap is made from a specific FKM rubber and is also luminescent, based on a world-first technology named “LumiSuperBiwiNovaTM” that makes part of the strap luminescent glow in the dark like a nocturnal signature.
Bearing the Poinçon de Genève, the Excalibur Twofold is a limited edition of eight pieces.
