Roger Dubuis Creates Pirelli and Lamborghini Limited Edition Watches

By Paul Joseph

Earlier this year, luxury Swiss watch brand Roger Dubuis confirmed it would be teaming up with two famous Italian brands – Lamborghini and Pirelli – to work on a series of new watches.

Soon after, two watches inspired by the Lamborghini Aventador S supercar were revealed, and three limited edition timepieces in red, blue and yellow were introduced quickly after, the latter the fruits of the Pirelli link up.

Now, ahead of the upcoming 2018 SIHH watch fair in Geneva, Roguer Dubuis has unveiled new interpretations of the Excalibur Aventador S and Excalibur Spider Pirelli – Automatic Skeleton watches.

Beginning with the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Pirelli Automatic Skeleton, the newest addition to the collection comes with white accents which beautifully contrasts the 48mm black DLC titanium case. This watch will also be limited to 88 examples, as per the other three editions.

For the Excalibur Aventador S watch, Roger Dubuis has introduced a new 28-piece edition which features the same 45mm case with the combination of layered carbon, black rubber, and black DLC titanium, with the bezel in fluted pink gold with black markings.

Named after Lamborghini’s flagship high-performance roadster, the Excalibur Aventador S Pink Gold also features the same colour accent on the hands, the markers, and the cover plate of the barrel. Furthermore, similarly to previous timepieces from the Lamborghini series, it is outfitted with a highly skeletonised movement that takes design cues from an Aventador S engine.

Pricing for the new watches is yet to be announced, but is expected to be confirmed at SIHH 2018, which runs from 15 – 19 January.
