Start your engines for the new Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Huracán. Redressed in Ceramic Composite Fibre (CCF), racing style just reached next level with the debut of this striking frosty white case. For an exclusive tribe of adrenaline-chasers who have come to expect the unexpected, the new Excalibur Spider Huracán brings raging mechanics, super-sleek aesthetics and horological craftsmanship together in one place. It’s time to shift to a higher gear.
Adrenaline meets innovation
Hearts race hard and fast at the sight of the RD630 calibre elevated by CCF, a high-technology material inspired by other ground-breaking industries. Roger Dubuis saw the ingenuity of aerospace’s use of CCF in the production of space rockets and from there went on to develop its own CCF material after months of research and development. Representing the Maison’s technical prowess and desire to charter new ground, the independent Manufacture found that combining resin with resistant ceramic fibres could produce an entirely new and exceptionally light material twenty per cent lighter than carbon and with a distinctive white marble effect. Not only does this lightness make it exceptionally comfortable to wear on the wrist, it also takes design to its epic extremes. Used to create its white case and as embellishment within the movement itself, the new Excalibur Spider Huracán is a veritable feat of innovation and adrenaline in a single timepiece.
Powered by raging mechanics
The new Excalibur Spider Huracán is the latest creation to emerge from Roger Dubuis x Lamborghini Squadra Corse, a partnership defined by radical performance and razor-sharp aesthetics. Reflecting the DNA of the Italian supercar combined with the horological excellence of the Maison, the CCF-white Excalibur Spider Huracán is built like an engine.
Powered by an automatic RD630 calibre, the 45-mm diameter Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Huracán channels the same exhilarating blend of performance and lightness as its motoring namesake. Taking strong visual cues from which the Lamborghini Huracán is based, the timepiece is imbued with signature racing design codes. With a honeycomb motif made famous by the supercar, the hexagonal dashboard of the Lamborghini Huracán is reflected in the timepiece, the same epicentre paralleled in the shape of the calibre. What’s more, twin barrels and a 12° tilted balance wheel represent the movement signature associated with Lamborghini Squadra Corse. When viewed from the back, the semi-skeletonised movement reveals the 360° oscillating rim weight that reproduces the like-for-like speed effect of a Huracán wheel rim, while emulating the design of the wheel rim too. A crown inspired by the supercar’s racing nuts is paired with an upper calibre strut-bar design bridge reminiscent of those found on the Lamborghini Huracán V10 engine itself. A cryptical date feature enhances its playful allure, while a Quick Release System on the buckle and strap ensures the watch is easily interchangeable. Limited to just 88 pieces, this is no ordinary timepiece. This is a timepiece for those who dare to seek out their next rush.
Glow big or glow home
Imbued with a further technical feat, the Excalibur Spider Huracán glows by night as the Maison’s obsession with light and luminescence shines through with both the upper flange and hands filled with Super-Luminova™. In a shining example that shows Roger Dubuis goes where others do not dare, Super-Luminova™ is also applied to the timepiece’s tilted surfaces, deposited on the strut-bars thanks to an innovative process first used in a Roger Dubuis world-premiere last year. Likewise, a vulcanization process known as SuperBiwiNova® melts Super-Luminova™ directly inside of the watches’ white rubber inlay strap to create a show-stopping finish. A glowing timepiece that plays by no one else’s rules but Roger Dubuis’ own, there’s no telling what could be achieved with the CCF-white and luminescent Excalibur Spider Huracán on the wrist.

Boutique exclusive Limited edition of 88 pieces
CCF – Ceramic Composite Fiber: a high-tech material exclusive to Roger Dubuis. Roger Dubuis developed this material offering a significant gain in weight with CCF being 20% lighter than carbon. Ceramic fibers are used in aerospace in the production of space rockets. The strap of the watch is made of luminescent rubber. During the manufacturing process, the rubber is vulcanized with SLN. Luminescent material – SLN – is also applied on the bezel and the strut bars.
Lamborghini, the supercar manufacturer from Italy, and Roger Dubuis, the hyper watch manufacturer from Geneva, teamed up and unleashed their creativity to release audacious timepieces born to race. The result are watches with unique calibres built like engines. From this collaboration, several patents and World Premiere were registered by Roger Dubuis offering to its exclusive tribes models evoking the uncompromised machines made by the Italian brand of the bull. The collaboration is also the genesis of unique projects where the client sits with the manufacturer to create his or her very own watch.
