Combining the power of an iconic model with the subtle elegance of a totally feminine timepiece, the Excalibur Lady collection from ROGER DUBUIS opens a new chapter in the history of the Geneva-based Manufacture. Incorporating all the traits on which the reputation of the Excalibur collection is based, this feminine collection is distinguished by a finer silhouette that shows off its harmonious curves. This look is echoed in the excellent finishing touches, revealing a ROGER DUBUIS mechanical movement that meets the most demanding requirements of haute horlogerie.
Passionately feminine, exclusively mechanical: this is the Excalibur Lady collection. If the sparkling beauty and slender markers of this collection were to be unveiled on the runway, we would think of them in terms of haute couture. More discreetly entwined around a feminine wrist, Excalibur Lady proudly bears the attributes of haute horlogerie. Through the boldness of its expression as much as by its mechanical movement, the new Excalibur Lady collection from ROGER DUBUIS is part of a decidedly contemporary movement: a spirit that deftly combines assertive femininity and the mechanical excellence of haute horlogerie.
From the Excalibur collection that has defined the finest periods of the Manufacture ROGER DUBUIS from 2005 onwards; the new Lady collection has retained the features that form its emblematic codes: three horns for the bracelet fixing, a highly distinctive grooved bezel and slender Roman numerals. These new aesthetic preferences help to create a more subtle and decidedly feminine silhouette. From its masculine predecessor, it seeks to retain this unique character, this touch of extravagance that incontrovertibly marks it out from its peers in the world of haute horlogerie.
The new codes of contemporary elegance
Expressing a power that is perfectly under control, the Excalibur Lady and its 36 mm has been the focus of much attention. Its tiniest details have been analysed, modified and refined to the point at which the richness and balance that illuminate this timepiece are powerfully revealed. Spirited and resolute, the new Excalibur Lady instils new vigour into the codes of contemporary elegance. The keen eye will quickly grasp the essence of its design: in terms of graphics, the Excalibur Lady watch plays with its pure lines to express its profundity and its haute horlogerie pedigree. Accentuating a dial with slender and over-sized Roman numerals – which contribute to the overall dynamism – a small second’s counter at 6 o’clock emphasizes the horological perspective.
The fluid, cadenced drive of the small seconds hand reveals a mechanism that just a few expert glances will be able to decipher. To be able to admire, it is necessary first to know how to look.
Emblematic of the collection, the grooved bezel – in both the set and unset variants – reinforces the character of this model while at the same time emphasizing its unique identity. A graphic work of art, a choreographic work in black and white, the dial seems to open out in order better to present itself to the outside world.
