One example of exclusive alliances between watch making and automotive sport is the now two-year-old “Perfect Fit” partnership between tyre expert Pirelli and Roger Dubuis, characterised by privileged exclusivity and a common focus on aesthetics in the respective R&D driven approaches of each, along with superlative technical engineering and high-tech materials. In February Pirelli launched a new patented studded tyre developed for high performance on ice in the most winter conditions. With optimized and patented stud distribution and a tread design developed to achieve continuous grip and high driving comfort, the Pirelli Ice Zero™ is the ultimate demonstration of Pirelli’s incomparable expertise in the world of high-end tyres for premium vehicles – this time on snow and ice.
In hot pursuit of the leader of the tyre pack, Roger Dubuis unveiled the Excalibur Pirelli Ice Zero 2 timepiece. Part of Roger Dubuis’ iconic collection with its stated sport aesthetic and skeleton signature, and complete with double flying tourbillon, one of the world’s highest complications in the realm of Haute Horlogerie, the timepiece is powered by this Poinçon de Genève certified Calibre RD105SQ. The eight-piece limited edition Excalibur Pirelli Ice Zero 2 timepiece gets off to a sizzling start with a strap complete with the same state-of-the-art steel nail studded pattern.
