The Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Pirelli- Double Flying Tourbillon Reference RDDBEX0599 is bound to make a statement. It is manufactured with exclusive partnership with Pirelli: world pioneer in technical and industrial innovations and sole supplier of premium tires to the world’s flagship motorsports competitions.
The Reference RDDBEX0599 combine the blue color motifs of the Pirelli brand through to the rubber tread in the strap reproducing the profile of a Pirelli Cinturato™ intermediate tire. The RDDBEX0599 adds significant touches of blue throughout the timepiece. Roger Dubuis designers added blue to the winding crown, on the thin line that encircles the otherwise black titanium bezel, and on the tips of the hour and minutes hands and on the inner bezel surrounding the luminescent hour markers. However, they went even further to add blue to the star-shaped design in the movement, on the mini dials at 5 second or minute intervals, and also on the power reserve dial indicating high or low charge. Pirelli blue is also used on the stitching of the bracelet.
The Reference RDDBEX0599 is Limited edition launch with only 8 pieces being manufactured. It is powered by a caliber RD105SQ which oscillates at a frequency of 21,600 Alt/h. It is a hand-wound mechanism with a 52 hour power reserve. It is made from 366 components and 50 jewels. The Circular-grained plate and bridges have received the Anthracite grey NAC treatment and Poinçon de Genève finishings.
Luminescent hour markers appear around the inner dial. The Roger Dubuis name appears in white lettering on blue at the 12 o’clock position. The case is 47 mm and has a water resistance of 50 meters. It comes with a dual material strap with black RubberTech as the base, mixed with rubber from a set of the highest performing Pirelli tires. The clasp is a Titanium grade 5 adjustable double folding clasp. The RDDBEX0599 has undergone extreme testing and received the Hallmark of Geneva seal guaranteeing its durability, performance, water resistance and precision.
Rubber B collaborated with Roger Dubuis to create an exclusive strap designed specifically for the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Pirelli- Double Flying Tourbillon Reference RDDBEX0599 47 mm case and deployment clasp. This is engineered to work with the quick-release system of the Excalibur Spider but can also support models that do not come with the quick-release. The quick release system is a unique system allowing timepiece owners the ability to completely change the look of their Roger Dubuis creation by interchanging bands with various color palettes to suit their needs and tastes at the moment. These bands can be attached to the original deployment clasp that came with the original timepiece.
All Rubber B vulcanized rubber bands are 100% waterproof and are made in Switzerland of pure natural rubber. Although the blue rubber base and matching blue stitching and the black base with blue stitching option look spectacular with the Reference RDDBEX0599 there are several base colors and alternative color threads used for stitching available to allow the Roger Dubuis timepiece owner a tremendous number of style options.
