Roger Dubuis’s international reputation as an avant-garde Maison perpetually on the look-out for pioneering technical developments and creative aesthetic options – as well as unexpected combinations of the two has given rise to the Quatuor caliber. A result of seven years of R&D and protected by two patents, the Excalibur Quatuor with its four sprung balances set at 45-degree angles proudly symbolizes the mechanical magic of one of the most innovative 21st century Manufactures. Today, Roger Dubuis remains one of the only Maisons capable of mastering such a complicated caliber, entirely in keeping with the powerful movements and equally strong aesthetic codes of the Excalibur collection.
Since its creation in 2013, the robustly designed Excalibur Quatuor has rocked the watchmaking world in gold, titanium and silicon, while 2017 saw a world premiere version in state-of-the-art CarTech Micro-Melt BioDur CCMTM (® in the USA). Today, the brand that dares to be different catapults innovation to the next level by combining this iconic timepiece with a disruptive multi-layer carbon. Not to mention the fact that its dark good look comes with the added benefit of the bantam-weight nature of carbon which is over 60 per cent lighter than gold. Made of multi-layered carbon, this Excalibur Quatuor is 60% lighter than the gold version for a better ergonomic design and fit and is a limited edition of eight pieces.
The aggressive design of each case in this eight-piece limited edition is remarkable due to the manner in which the carbon is cut. Black, almost weightless and radiating an aura of effortless strength, the all-new Roger Dubuis Excalibur Quatuor Carbon is living proof of what happens when the true force of gravity is leveraged by a Manufacture renowned for mastering incredible technology.
Roger Dubuis has been at the forefront of contemporary Haute Horlogerie since 1995. Its audacious creations, firmly anchored in the 21st century, embody substantial expertise expressed through the finest watchmaking mechanisms combined with powerful and daring designs. Boldness and extravagance are the brand’s signatures, and determination its driving force.
The Roger Dubuis Excalibur and Velvet collections are distributed worldwide through an exclusive sales network and boutiques. The quest for excellence, the long search for the right gesture, as well as the development of unique skills are all defining characteristics of the Geneva-based Swiss Maison.
