Following their previous partnership in 2017 on a calibre specifically designed for the collaboration, Swiss luxury watchmaker Roger Dubuis has now linked up with Lamborghini Squadra Corse — the automaker’s racing division — to once again craft another unique movement, this time housed in the intricately-designed Excalibur Huracán.
As the name suggests, both the timepiece and the movement are inspired by the Italian racing team’s Huracán supercar. The spotlight of the release is no doubt the new heart of the watch, which now carries a 12° angle balance escapement paired with an automatic winding mechanism and a rim-like rotor. The upper calibre then features a bridge reminiscent of the strut bars in the Huracán’s powerful V10 engine.
Housing the movement is a 45mm DLC titanium case atop an angular skeletonized dial maintaining the linear aesthetic of the racer. The upper flange itself and all the indices are plated in Rhodium, while the 18k gold hands come in a black PVD coating and luminous SLN tips for greater legibility in the dark. Together, it offers a water-resistance of up to 50m.
Now available, the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Huracán will set you back roughly $52,100 USD. Head over to the company’s website to learn more.
Elsewhere in watches, Bell & Ross has released its fifth collaborative collection with the Renault F1 Team.
