A Limited-Edition Excalibur Spider Hyper Timepiece

To Be Unveiled at Watches and Wonders


For the second consecutive year, the world’s largest duty-free shopping center – Sanya International Duty Free Shopping Complex will welcome Watches and Wonders from October 1st to December 31st, 2021. Three months during which the finest creations and expertise of 13 watchmaking Maisons will be presented to a large public, including Geneva hyper watchmaker Roger Dubuis.

Staged in 3 different areas, the Maison offers a complete immersion to its guests, starting with the Watches and Wonders marquee where the Roger Dubuis will be positioned at the middle of the line-up of haute horlogerie brands. Another lime-light focus is the Roger Dubuis stage at CDFG Haitang Bay – where a new brand boutique will be established later and redesigned into fully white colour – that continues to carry the Maison’s signature Astral décor: the gigantic and unmistakable Roger Dubuis star that bears Gravity and Infinity windows showcasing the Maison’s iconic timepieces in levitation, offering an immersive experience to fine watchmaking aficionados and once again emanates Roger Dubuis’ serial innovator spirit and the Maison’s obsession for creating and designing the future of Hyper Horology. In parallel, the Back Pavilion hosts a Lamborghini Huracan evo RWD supercar that evokes the iconic Raging Alliance between the two disruptive brands is exhibited at the Back Pavilion highlighting Roger Dubuis’ hyper watch collections to add engineering excellence and exhilaration to this grand event – a perfect stage is therefore created as the Maison debuts the latest interpretation of its iconic skeleton Excalibur Spider hyper watch - a limited edition dedicated to Watches and Wonders Sanya only for a limited period of time fueled by innovation and highly-skilled hyper horology.

The Excalibur Spider collection are for those who live life in the fast lane, and thus the fitting timepieces for members of the singular Roger Dubuis tribe who are thrilled by breaking records and defining new rules. The latest creation by the Maison further exemplifies the mindset, housing the signature flying tourbillon of the Maison in a case made of Ceramic Composite Fiber (CCF), a high-tech material exclusive to Roger Dubuis.

Always taking inspiration from other innovative industries, Roger Dubuis saw the ingenuity of aerospace’s use of CCF in the production of space rockets and from there went on to develop its own CCF material after months of research and development. Representing the Maison’s technical prowess and desire to charter new ground, the independent Manufacture found that combining resin with resistant ceramic fibres could produce an entirely new and exceptionally light material twenty per cent lighter than carbon and with a distinctive white marble-effect. This innovative material takes this timepiece design to its epic extremes and demonstrates once again the technical prowess of the Maison. The 45mm brand-new Excalibur Spider timepiece makes a cutting-edge horological feat in the purest white colour and another proof of the Maison’s dedication to offer day after day the most exciting way to experience Hyper Horology.

Skeletonized to the extreme: Whether that be the calibre, the case or even the hands, everything is reduced to its strict essence in order to infuse the spirit of racing and outdoor challenges into a piece of competition that features a complication that symbolizes Roger Dubuis’ haute horlogerie mastery: the skeleton flying tourbillon. Equipped with a 60-hour power reserve and the in-house RD508 calibre displaying a power reserve indicator built like a fuel gauge, this singularly expressive feat of mechanical engineering is accentuated by the Poinçon de Geneve decorations, one of the most demanding certifications in the world of Haute Horlogerie. The whole experience is further raised as the interchangeable Rubber Tech strap transforms effortlessly, thanks to QRS, a ROGER DUBUIS Quick Release System on the buckle and strap allowing easy look changes while ensuring the watch is safe and secure.

From October 1st, 2021 onwards, guests who share a taste for the most exclusive creations in watchmaking are cordially invited to this not-to-be-missed rendezvous at Sanya International Duty Free Shopping Complex. No Rules, Our Game, embark on a journey into the future of Hyper Horology with Roger Dubuis at Watches and Wonders in the seaside resort of Sanya, China.
