The Excalibur 36 Automatic by Roger Dubuis has a black-blue-white colour scheme, rather like the Pirelli colours that can be seen in the Excalibur Spider Pirelli, but with a more feminine sensuality – though Roger Brand say that this watch will appeal to men as well. The 36-millimetre black DLC-treated titanium case, 9.8 mm thick, is enhanced by the bezel set with 48 blue sapphires.
Dial with radiating Roman numerals
It”s the dial that steals the show, with a sunray-brushed finish on the blue PVD surface. The radiating Roman numerals create a powerful motif, rather like Cartier’s watches. The small seconds subdial at 6 o’clock has a date display. Other characteristic features of the Excalibur collection are the fluted bezel and triple lugs. The watch has a blue alligator leather strap with a black DLC-treated titanium folding buckle. Water resistance is 5 atm.
The RD830 calibre can be viewed through the sapphire caseback, and it has a pink gold rotor. The movement has 183 components, it runs at 28,800 vibrations per hour, is adjusted in 6 positions, and it provides a power reserve of 48 hours. 27 jewels.
