Roger Dubuis continues to invest in the partnership with Lamborghini and presents the new Roger Dubuis Excalibur Huracán All Black.

Powered by the RD630 automatic caliber and featuring the same combination of performance, lightness and safety as its homonymous car, the new Excalibur Huracán All Black 45 mm in diameter will be presented in 2020, as the name implies, fully dressed in black. A sporty effect achieved thanks to the black DLC-coated titanium case and bezel.

Inside the Excalibur Huracán the same movement of its predecessor hits. Widely skeletonized, the caliber RD630 has a 12º inclined balance, a structure with honeycomb design embedded in the plate and reminiscent of the Lamborghini grid, and a hexagonal date window at 6, whose numerals echo the look of a car’s speedometer from the Italian construction company. The new movement also features a 360º central rotor, inspired by Huracán wheels. The double barrel, which allow a power reserve of 60 hours, is also visible on the dial, flanking the date window.The final touch is given by the bimatter strap, which combines a black rubber base with a Alcantara coating, a velvety leather used in the interior of Lamborghini cars.

 

Roger Dubuis and Lamborghini. Shared DNA.

Partnerships with car brands are not new in the watchmaking universe, not least because the points of contact and interest between these two worlds are, in fact, immense. Despite this reality, it is impossible to remain indifferent to the amount of similarities between Roger Dubuis and Lamborghini. Almost as if the alliance between the two manufactures was written in the stars. If not, let’s see: both produce between 3500 and 4000 pieces per year, both seek to merge cutting-edge engineering with exuberant design, and both belong to a large group (Volkswagen and Richemont).

Everything suggested that dating between brands could only result in an ideal marriage. Thus, in 2017, Roger Dubuis and Lamborghini made the relationship official, establishing a five-year partnership. To mark this, the watchmaking company created the Excalibur Aventador S and Excalibur Huracán lines, whose timepieces are inspired by the homonymous Lamborghinis, and is also the official sponsor of the Super Trofeo Championship, a series of exclusive races for cars from the Sant ‘Agata Bolognese brand.

Two top manufacturers, two portents in their area of ​​intervention, two inspirational names, an alliance whose fruits are already visible, but which promises to continue to surprise. In this case, success has two names: Roger Dubuis and Lamborghini.
