Roger Dubuis | Excalibur Spider Huracàn Sterrato MB
Roaring into life at Art Basel Miami, the Excalibur Spider Huracán Sterrato MB is an invitation to steer off road for life’s biggest and boldest thrills.
The Excalibur Spider Huracán Sterrato MB timepiece is powered by the RD630 calibre. This horological “engine” is designed specifically to reflect the hexagonal air intakes of Lamborghini Squadra Corse racing cars, just as the symmetry of the twin barrels offers a further nod to the Huracán collection and the multi-fuel tanks of its supercars.
Always adopting an unconventional approach, the Maison’s watchmakers have tilted the balance wheel to a 12° angle to achieve peak performance. Found at 12 o’clock to echo the Sterrato rev counter, its flipped positioning provides a better view for the wearer, who can now fully enjoy the oscillations of its balance-spring – the beating heart of the watch. Completing these impressive mechanics, the date is featured at 6 o’clock.
Semi-skeletonised and visible through a transparent caseback, the movement is equipped with a 360° oscillating weight reproducing the lines and speed effect of a Huracán wheel rim. The self-winding single-balance calibre guarantees a 60-hour power reserve.
Dressed in electrifying orange and audacious red, this limited edition is a stunning demonstration of super-sleek aesthetics. Sharp lines found across the dial from 12 to 7 o’clock and from 12 to 5 o’clock recall the clean-cut lines of the Sterrato’s roof rack. A distinctive feature of every Excalibur Spider Huracán is its crown: inspired by racing nuts, it brings even more roaring style to the wrist.
