Roger Dubuis has introduced three flying tourbillon-equipped models each housed in new smaller 39mm cases to appeal to a wider audience.

In recent years Roger Dubuis’ watchmaking strategy has been bigger, better, faster, more; running in perfect harmony with that of supercar partner, Lamborghini. But when your watch cases average 45mm there will be many customers whose wrists are left out in the cold, unable to carry off such large watches.

That’s where the brand’s new 39mm case size comes in, opening the door to a whole host of new customers but still packing the same horological punch.

Two Excalibur Spider Flying Tourbillons, one each for men and women, as well as a sportier, more colourful Excalibur Pirelli Flying Tourbillon have been created in the new size giving the brand greater reach.

The EX0815 features a black DLC-coated titanium case with rubber inlays, lacquered 10-minute markings on the bezel and a black rubber strap. Its lighter, more feminine companion piece EX 0816 instead opts for an 18kt pink gold case with titanium core and white rubber strap.

A sportier piece within Roger Dubuis’ partnership with tiremaker Pirelli, the EX0817, features the same black DLC-coated titanium case with bright red accents and inlays. Its rubber strap is created from used tire rubber, certified as being sourced from genuine Pirelli race-winning tires.

All three pieces feature aesthetically different versions of the same heavily skeletonized, manually wound 3Hz movement with 60-second flying tourbillon and 60-hour power reserve. While each movement features the same prominent star-shaped bridge, a signature of the brand, the two motorsport-inspired pieces include a hexagonal grille matrix filling in the open-worked voids.

We’ve requested prices and we’ll update as soon as they arrive.
