These past years, Roger Dubuis has cemented an alliance with Italian legend, Lamborghini Squadra Corse. The Excalibur Aventador S was the first horological expression of this high-speed partnership. Now, the Manufacture is gearing up to introduce a new black-and-red version.

Not every year, not even every decade, does a watch become an icon of its generation and an expression of the spirit of its time. In 1979, however, Piaget created just such a timepiece with the Piaget Polo. Although recognized throughout the world, the Piaget Polo has always had a particular association with New York. It was here in 1985 that the Piaget polo team celebrated the watch by riding down Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue. Thus, there could be no greater city or place for Piaget to celebrate the legacy of the original Piaget Polo with the launch of a new watch, for a new generation.
On his arrival in Italy in 1786, Goethe was struck by the light and colours of the Mediterranean, prompting him to make this observation: "It is evident that the eye forms itself by the objects which from youth it is accustomed to look upon; and so the Venetian artist must see all things in a clearer and brighter light than other men." We perceive reality through nature, we understand art through technique; Goethe's research is morphological, it spans poetry and science. His Italian journey would lead to the Theory of Colours that would influence artists all over Europe.
