At the SIHH 2013 event, Roger Dubuis has presented a new member of their signature collection. Sporting the easily recognizable notched bezel and the stylized Roman numerals that RD loves so much, the 2013 Roger Dubuis Excalibur 42 Chronometer Chronograph (ref. RDDBEX0389) also sports their fresh automatic movement with a micro-rotor design.
Presented Roger Dubuis at the SIHH 2011 trade show reserved for the elite players of the industry, the limited-edition Excalibur Self-Winding with Micro-Rotor and Flying Tourbillon (Ref. EX45-520-20-00/0ER01/B) sports a dial layout that is ideologically similar to that of the gorgeous Piaget Emperador Coussin Tourbillon Ultra-Thin presented in Geneva during the same event.
The flow of unveilings from this year’s SIHH 2011 just doesn’t want to stop. Among dozens of look-alikes, the new Roger Dubuis Le Chronographe La Monegasque (Ref. MG44-680-90-00/0ER01/B) with its uniquely shaped body and no-nonsense dial feels like a breath of fresh air.
For the last SIHH 2010 show, Roger Dubuis has presented a lot of, well, ultra-luxury products even including a model with a relatively rare “double tourbillon” design (and that one looked spectacular, I’d give them that.) However, it was the splendid Excalibur Tourbillon Minute repeater that offered a nice combination of classic complications inside wrapped into a “post-art-deco” exterior that looked the most interesting offering for this year.
