Roger Dubuis Revs Up Lamborghini-Inspired Excalibur Spider Flyback Chronograph

Roger Dubuis answers the siren call of the open road with their latest tribute to racing, the Excalibur Spider Flyback Chronograph. The limited-edition timepiece races ahead in Lamborghini’s iconic Verde Mantis hue.

In their decade-long partnership with Lamborghini Squadra Corse, Roger Dubuis has created watches as daring in design and engineering as the legendary Italian racing cars. The Maison boldly returns to their roots with the RD780 chronograph movement. Handcrafted by watchmakers, this modern caliber integrates the beloved complication from inception.

A column wheel, the mark of haute horlogerie, smoothly operates chronograph functions. The vertical clutch, shaped like a Lamborghini gear system, provides unparalleled accuracy. A patent-pending brake steadies the chronograph seconds hand.

With the Flyback function, timing laps on the track is effortless. Just press the pusher and the chronograph instantly restarts. The 120° Rotating Minute Counter rotates with vigor, its red digits bold against the dial.

Like a sports car body, the Excalibur Spider’s 45mm case is lightweight gray carbon. Scratch-resistant ceramic bezels the round edges. Embodying Lamborghini’s signature Y-shaped headlights, the sleek bar glows with Super-LumiNova in the night.

The architectural case plays with dimension. Skeletonized pushers hover over a deep date display, while a tachymeter scale floats with an accentuated 88—the Maison’s lucky number. The rotor evokes rims with its five spokes.

The timepiece comes to life on a Verde Mantis rubber strap. Quick release allows quick changes for versatile wear.

With exhilarating color and dynamic details from dial to caseback, the $107,500 Excalibur Spider Flyback Chronograph brings the thrill of the racetrack to the wrist. Only 88 units will hit the grid, accelerating the pulse of racing aficionados worldwide.
