Bucherer & Roger Dubuis Encounter at the summit of luxury with Bucherer BLUE EDITIONS
For the first time ever, Bucherer will be presenting the complete Bucherer BLUE EDITIONS collection, from 7 December 2018 to 6 January 2019, at a pop-up event in the departures lounge of Zurich airport. The collection will notably be enlivened by an eight-piece limited-edition Excalibur Aventador S timepiece by Roger Dubuis and its “Powered by Raging Mechanics” partner Lamborghini Squadra Cirse, which has also created a ‘matching’ one-off vehicle specifically for the event..
The Manufacture’s iconic Excalibur collection provides a perfect showcase for the inimitable Roger Dubuis extravagance and craftsmanship. The Excalibur Aventador S shines in glistening Bucherer blue on both its dial and its rubber strap complete with a RubberTech insert. Embodying the Maison’s unique partnership with Lamborghini Squadra Corse, this timepiece is designed to the same rigorous standards as the Italian brand’s supercars. The 45 mm case in C-SMC carbon houses the Duotor calibre with its distinctive stabilising bars based on the same principle as the iconic Roger Dubuis Astral Skeleton.
For the very first time, Lamborghini Squadra Corse is introducing a unique BLUE EDITIONS model to match this special watch version created by Roger Dubuis. Finished in a matte Blue Kairos shade specially created for the occasion, it also sports dark grey Alcantara seat-backs highlighted by the figure eight stitched in blue thread, a nod to Bucherer 1888. The final and most extravagant customised feature of the vehicle has been achieved in collaboration with Bucherer’s Fine Jewellery workshops: a stunning white gold flap protecting the start button and studded with 207 sapphires.
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.
