Roger Dubuis has unveiled 5 new pieces this year at SIHH in Geneva, the headliner being the piece you see here. Though it is not my favorite of Roger Dubuis’ 2017 releases (I’ll get to my fav soon), the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Pirelli Double Flying Tourbillon is one sweet watch. This new super-limited version of Roger Dubuis’ bold double tourbillon watch also serves as the launch platform for a brand new alliance with Pirelli (yes, the high-end tire maker that is the exclusive supplier of tires for Formula One). With the rubber inlays are from a set of Pirelli tires that won an F1 race, it seems a natural perquisite of purchasing such an expensive (280,000 Swiss Francs, or about the same in USD at current f/x) and exclusive timepiece that the eventual owners of these eight watches will be granted a two-day VIP motorsports event as guests of Pirelli.
