Every year people working in the watch industry pass away, and brands come and go. This year I’d like to highlight a few of those we’ve lost, but will always remember.
The new Excalibur Aventador S is the first collaborative piece between Lamborghini and Roger Dubuis. A joint effort between engineers and designers at Centro Stile (Lamborghini’s design studio) and Roger Dubuis, the Excalibur Aventador S paves the way to the new partnership with an entirely new movement featuring 45-degree dual balances.
When Lamborghini and Roger Dubuis recently announced their new partnership, our eyes were of course fully focused on the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Aventador S. But that was not all the news coming out of Lamborghini’s hometown of Sant’Agata Bolognese, as the Italian supercar manufacturer also introduced the new Huracán Super Trofeo EVO.
The mere existence of the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Quatuor is incredible, and the Excalibur Quatuor Cobalt MicroMelt reignites earlier amazement over such a complicated piece with a new process and material for the case that would make a nerdy metallurgist stand up and take notice.
In honor of the upcoming 27th edition of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), which opens its doors on January 16, 2017, we present you with an overview of 35 new models that have already been revealed – at least electronically.
Carbon is an absolute building block of life as we know it and by mass is the fourth most abundant element in the entire universe. And in case you forgot, the universe is a ridiculously large place, which means that carbon, little old 6C is probably more famous than Justin Bieber and Beyoncé . . . combined! There are two principle techniques for creating carbon fiber objects, and the Roger Dubuis Black Velvet Paraiba And Excalibur Skeleton Carbon are excellent examples of each.
In this age of digital information, watch companies try to get ahead of the competition by releasing news on their new timepieces ahead of the big watch fairs. The 2016 edition is no different, and in honor of the upcoming 26th edition of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), we present you with an overview of some of the new models that have already been revealed, including timepieces by Jaeger-LeCoultre, Richard Mille, Piaget, Montblanc, MB&F, H. Moser & Cie, HYT, and Roger Dubuis.
Watches & Wonders, inaugurated three years ago as an Asian version of the SIHH, has evolved into an important horological exhibition for local press and watch aficionados thanks to its strategic location in Hong Kong. Here we bring you an overview of 12 interesting timepieces launched at this prestigious fair.
The Roger Dubuis Hommage collection has produced exceptional pieces, but one has stood out to me as a masterpiece worthy of a deeper look because of its sheer awesomazingness. That piece is the Hommage Minute Repeater Tourbillon Automatic. Because with the Hommage Minute Repeater you can see virtually everything!
In the past, a skeletonizer would have taken many hours to saw and file away at an existing movement in order to remove all that is superfluous. Today, skeletonized movements are for the most part conceived to be such right from the start. At the 2015 edition of SIHH, we found five such skeletonized watches, all of which were designed as such from the get-go.
