Hypebeast and Roger Dubuis Debut Hyper-Expressive Excalibur Hypebeast Monobalancier
A new way to experience Hyper Horology.
Swiss watchmaker Roger Dubuis is gearing up to unveil the all-new Excalibur Hypebeast Monobalancier. The hyper-expressive timepiece, made in collaboration with Hypebeast, features an automatic caliber and striking 42mm scratch-resistant case and bezel meticulously crafted from ceramic. The rare-edition release is limited to 28 pieces and will retail for $80,000 USD.
This reinterpretation of Roger Dubuis’ signature Excalibur Monobalancier is aimed at collectors and fine watchmaking aficionados who have a pulse on cutting-edge horology and fashion. Embodying this ambitious and forward-thinking spirit, the contemporary Excalibur Hypebeast Monobalancier reflects the Maison’s dedication to excellence, offering a way to go beyond Haute Horlogerie and experience Hyper Horology.
The Excalibur Hypebeast Monobalancier’s minimalist design is punctuated by a skeletonized caliber and a radiant ceramic bezel and case, followed by a white embossed calf-leather strap. The distinctive ceramic elements denote the Maison’s ability to master unconventional materials and showcase exemplary technical prowess. The navy blue flange and micro-rotor provide eye-catching contrast against the ceramic elements while paying homage to Hypebeast’s signature colors from the site’s early 2000s blog-style interface. An optimized automatic RD720SQ caliber offers a power reserve of 72 hours. The introduction of a new lube, reconstructed escapement wheel and paired adjustable pallet-stones enhance the model’s resistance and energy transmission.
