Roger Dubuis unveils Excalibur Twofold watch
Roger Dubuis has pulled the wraps of a new Excalibur watch.
The Twofold (ironically) has in fact three world firsts: the entire case and bezel has been created from silica, its movement has a brand new form of luminescence, and the strap makes use of yet more superluminova.
The 45mm case has been procuded in Mineral Composite Fiber, which is a whiter-than-white material that is made from 99.95 per cent silica material.
Under that white hood is the RD01SQ movement, with an updated upper plate (again made of that same composite material) and painted with a new luminescent paint that glows for 60 per cent longer than traditional superluminova treatments.
Lastly, the Twofold’s flourocarbon rubber strap has strips of LumiSuperBiwiNova that glows alongside the watch face when the lights are off.
The watch is limited to just eight pieces, each priced at US$276,000.
