The Roger Dubuis Excalibur Aventador S Contains Real Lamborghini Material

A new partnership has been formed between Lamborghini and Roger Dubuis for the purpose of creating the Excalibur Aventador S. The new luxury watch is a collaborative effort that may spark a new line of followers for each brand. Each of these famous brands is known for excellence and serving high end consumers so we have an idea of what to expect when it comes to luxury, high quality and an example that will no doubt retain its value with increase over time. The remarkable new Excalibur Aventador S. actually contains Lamborghini components, which makes it yet more novel and intriguing. The melding of the two famous names is likely to result in a new tradition of collaborations.

An investment of time

The partnership does come with certain caveats that are mutually beneficial for both Lamborghini and Roger Dubuis. The deal was struck to continue with a five year run of the Aventador S. Lamborghini autos are pre-sold as customized vehicles and are produced at a rate of 3,500 per year. In the deal, Roger Dubuis will offer the bespoke watch in its fully customizable format to Lamborghini customers at the time that the auto purchase is made. This service has not yet been put into practice but it’s a situation that Roger Dubuis is pursuing as an option with the automaker.

The Aventador S limited edition watch

This timepiece will be available in two versions which will be liited to 88 examples for one and only 8 for the other. While the watches will be similar, there will be a few noticeable differences, particularly in the color theme Here is a sneak peek at what is coming in the near future.

Case

The case will feature carbon fiber in a 45mm diameter. This is a material that Lamborghini incorporates into its chassis and other components. The case band is skeletonized as well as the lugs which gives the watch a light feeling on the wrist. The incorporation of a yellow rubber overmold will appear in the 88 piece edition with an orange version on the 8 piece.

Movement

The RD 103SQ Caliber takes its inspiration from the Lamborghini engine block. It is a Duotor Caliber with a skeleton movement that is regulated by two sprung balances, inclined with a deadbeat seconds added complication.  The skeletonization gives watch owners a clear view of the internal workings of the mechanism, which serves as a metaphoric view of the engine of the automobile. The power reserve indicator is brightly colored and it visible between the one and two o’ clock indications. The Geneva Seal stamp is also included as with all other Roger Dubuis watches as a signature characteristic.

Lamborghini parts

The carbon fiber cover that is used to house the movement is created in the carbon foundry at the Lamborghini plant. This is more of a gesture that brings the two brands together than a functional element. It also gives the watch a unique personality and a markedly different appearance. This is one of the multiple convergences of the two brands that is intentional for the purpose of appealing to patrons of the Lamborghini brand.

The convergence in a Roger Dubuis creation

The watch is definitely Roger Dubuis with a case that is available in a 45 x 14.05m layered carbon fiber and titanium case that houses the manual winding Caliber RD1035SQ. Hours, minutes, jumping seconds and power reserve functions with a light feel for a larger watch are the end result. This melds the two brands while maintaining the integrity of the Roger Dubuis watch.

Pricing

The Roger Dubuis Excalibur Aventador S is an expensive watch. The 88 piece collection will come with a price tag of $185,000 each for the yellow edition. The more limited edition with only 8 examples available in orange, will fetch an asking price of $205,000 per watch .

Final thoughts

The Roger Dubuis Excalibur Aventador S is the result of the collaboration of two high end luxury brands who have combined their efforts to present the world with a watch that stands as a representation of the highly prized automobile in its companion luxury watch. Although the deal has not been set into motion as of yet, the goal of Roger Dubuis is to offer a customized version of the Excalibur Aventador S at the time of purchase at Lamborghini.
