These are the latest renditions of a timepiece evoking the patient, meticulous and inventive nature of the work done by the resourceful arachnid. In 2015, the previous pioneering experience of the Manufacture in the field of contemporary skeleton work enabled it to drive this expertise beyond the movement alone and apply it to whole new areas of the watch: the case, flange and hands. This Spider-inspired external skeleton work accentuates the distinctive movement structure. Moreover, the dynamic Roger Dubuis Astral Skeleton is based on an exclusive multi-level, star-shaped construction while enhancing the clarity of the dials through its star tips pointing directly to hour-markers. In addition, the RD505SQ calibre powering the Excalibur Spider Skeleton Flying Tourbillon models also features another technical characteristic that has become a Roger Dubuis signature: the flying tourbillon with its carriage shaped like a Celtic cross.
