Introducing: The Roger Dubuis Excalibur Aventador S (Live Pics & Pricing)
The RD 103SQ development seen the caseback of the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Aventador S.
While surely not for everybody, each has fanatic supporters and, obviously, there’s a considerable lot of cover between their customer bases. (Roger Dubuis CEO Jean-Marc Pontroue says that he had the plan to get something going with Lamborghini after consistently hearing the supercar’s name come up when he asked his watch customers what else they were into.) I need to admit that when I originally found out about this organization, I considered what may happen when Lambo and RD got together and let their individual supercar and super-watch DNA communicate. I was able to wager it would be something other than another ho-murmur cooperation piece – and I wasn’t disappointed.
The first watch to result from the five-year bargain between Roger Dubuis and Lamborghini is the Excalibur Aventador S, made in carbon fiber with two escapements, a lowlife seconds show, and a development propelled by the motor square of the Lamborghini Aventador. Like a Lamborghini – and like practically every Roger Dubuis so far as that is concerned – this watch is reckless and costly. Roger Dubuis and Lamborghini each make around 3,500 units yearly, and on account of Lamborghini, each and every vehicle is pre-sold and customized.
There are two renditions of the debut cooperation watch. Both are a restricted versions, one out of 88 pieces and the other in only eight, so dislike you will spy them under the glass at each nearby watch vendor. Roger Dubuis has communicated an interest in contribution bespoke watch customization to Lamborghini purchasers at retail locations as well, however that is not yet available.
Caliber RD 103SQ
Let’s beginning with a gander at the Excalibur Aventador S’s carbon fiber case. We frequently catch wind of how carbon fiber watch components are motivated by the car circle. Obviously, Lamborghini has been utilizing carbon fiber in its frame for quite a long time, creating skill that has made them something of an innovator in the field. Today, the Bologna-based automaker has its own office for assembling carbon fiber and creates enough of it to offer to outside companies, including other auto marques. The instance of every one of these watches is a hearty 45mm in distance across, however since the system is carbon fiber, it winds up as yet feeling exceptionally light on the wrist. The weight is additionally decreased through the skeletonization of the caseband and drags as well. The 88 piece release is overmolded with yellow elastic and the 8 piece rendition gets its articulations in overmolded orange rubber.

The development at the core of these watches is pristine, a sign that the cooperation is something that Roger Dubuis pays attention to enough to put genuine R&D into. The Duotor Caliber RD 103SQ is a skeleton development directed by two slanted sprung equilibriums and it includes a lowlife seconds complication as well. It is a fascinating decision for Roger Dubuis to actualize its first loser seconds system in a joint effort like this, since it’s a complication for genuine watch sweethearts and something that laymen can without much of a stretch slip-up for something less complex (ie, a straightforward quartz development). One contemplates whether vehicle customers coming to the Excalibur Aventador S simply due to its relationship with Lamborghini will comprehend what’s a play here.
Both of the watches work a similar way. All things considered, each is basically 50% of the Quatuor development that debuted in 2013. By slanting the escapements and associating them through a differential, the reasoning goes, the two adjusts control each other while compensating for positional mistakes, bringing about a more solid and exact rate than a watch with a solitary sprung balance. Roger Dubuis records the recurrence of the development as 57,600 vph, however that figure is simply reached by adding the 28,800 vph pace of the two escapements together. While there is a great deal going on outwardly, in the event that you look carefully there’s a splendidly shaded force hold pointer jabbing out from the core of the “motor” somewhere in the range of one and two o’clock. Like each and every watch that Roger Dubuis has at any point made, this one is stepped with the Geneva Seal.
The 88-piece restricted version in yellow expenses $185,000, while the eight-piece restricted release will hinder you $205,000. Notwithstanding the shading distinction, the last additionally uses a carbon fiber cover over the development that is made in the Lamborghini carbon foundry. It’s not actually useful, yet it unquestionably offers an alternate look.
