Roger Dubuis doesn’t do bland. You’re either into the brand’s aesthetic or you’re not, and that’s the way the company’s CEO Jean-Marc Pontroué likes it.
Earlier today we received a quick announcement from the Geneva-based manufacture reporting the launch of its first North American exclusive. Based on the company’s flagship tourbillon watch, the cheap replica Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Americas Edition is a 20-piece limited edition only available in one location.
So what exactly makes it different? There are red and yellow accents on the dial (the minutes track is yellow with red dots at the hours) plus a summer-appropriate white rubber strap. That’s it though – otherwise it’s identical to the standard luxury fake Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider. While this watch doesn’t exactly introduce anything innovative to the product line-up, it does show the company’s desire to bolster its North American boutique with a timely new addition.
There are a few variations of the Excaliber Spider, which is one of Roger Dubuis’s few watches not cased in precious metals. This limited edition is cased in DLC-coated titanium, making it light and sporty, despite the replica Roger Dubuis 42mm case size. Inside, there’s nothing new to report. The watch is once again powered by the company’s highly-skeletonized RD505SQ caliber, a hand-wound tourbillon movement with a 60 hour power reserve, certified with the Poincon de Genève.
The Excalibur Spider Americas Edition is available exclusively at Roger Dubuis’s New York City flagship boutique on Madison Avenue, with a retail price of $167,500.
