With the Excalibur Skeleton Double Flying Tourbillon, Roger Dubuis set itself the exciting challenge of changing perceptions. The skeleton structure concept has been pushed to its limit to provide a dynamic aesthetic.

Entirely rebuilt in terms of volume, the movement heightens the sense of transparency and depth. The latter quality is highlighted by the iconic Roger Dubuis star, released from its functional role within the movement base. Lodged between flange and plate, criss-crossing bridges placed on different levels, it now levitates freely above the barrel. This dynamic aesthetic is amplified by the Hallmark of Geneva decorations, each carefully chosen to serve the movement’s aesthetic and technical aspects.

For this model, Roger Dubuis has enhanced the power reserve to a generous 72 hours. To achieve this, the Manufacture’s watchmakers have successfully reduced the weight of the tourbillons through selective use of materials, which are also anti-magnetic. Each thus features a lower cage made of titanium (twice as light as stainless steel) and an upper one in mirror-polished cobalt chrome. Available in eight-piece white and pink gold editions, as well as a likewise limited version full-set with baguette-cut diamonds, this model offers a demonstration of advanced mechanics in action.
