The future of Hyper Horlogy
First in the world to introduce a double flying tourbillon, this contemporary architectural caliber is the extreme expression of our obsession: recreate the codes of hyper horology. This newly introduced symbolic expression of time is a true testimonial to the ‘tradition reinvented’ spirit of Roger Dubuis and the unmistakable signature of the Maison: a perfect blend of visual magic and technical performance. Above and beyond its hypnotic aesthetic appeal, this calibre ensures an enhanced precision thanks to its differential system serving to average out the rate of the two tourbillons.
Brought to life in a 45mm masterpiece, the iconic Excalibur Double Flying Tourbillon is this time interpreted with an unbridled artistic creativity where 18K rose gold reigns supreme. With its head placed at 12 o'clock and its body and limbs intertwining with mechanical parts of the dial, the majestic dragon seems to be playing with this grand complication in a very daring way.
A technical and esthetic prowess perfectly mastered, where every single detail has been thoroughly thought and crafted to offer an uncompromised experience.
The Yin counterpart of the Dragon is here represented by the wise soul of the graceful phoenix, embracing the caliber with its wings and tail. Rarity and wisdom the Excalibur Feng is simply singular. Featuring one of the most complex of all Haute Horlogerie complications, the Excalibur Feng single flying tourbillon, with its plates and bridges pared down to extremes to only leave the essential, is a spectacular demonstration of radical watchmaking expertise.
As a flamboyant stage-setting to the highly technical nature of this tourbillon caliber, a 36mm case is here engraved with 18K rose gold. The already extraordinary allure of the Exclabur Feng is then completed with a bezel set with 48 brilliant-cut white diamonds.
Every part of the Feng, from the feathers to its body movement, has been fastidiously refined. Only by striking an obsessively balance in proportion and layout can the fascinating, vivid image of the Feng be brought to life, allowing it to spread its wings, with its plumage swirling around the tourbillon placed at the 7 o'clock mark.
The micro sculpture craftsmanship, signature of the unbeatable attention to details of the Maison
These contemporary sculpted masterpieces feature a microscopic gold engraving technique – a delicate yet highly demanding craftmanship skill highlighting their every detail: hairs, feathers, scales, and eyelids - giving life to this duo of sacred symbols in an deliberate way.
A display of unparalleled expertise and craftsmanship, the Excalibur Long and Excalibur Feng are limited to eight pieces worldwide and come together to pay tribute to ancient Chinese culture, epitomizing Roger Dubuis’ ground-breaking spirit in a vivid illustration of the essence of a remarkable civilization.
