Roger Dolby has been called the “continuous innovator” of the watch industry. Its fearless spirit, rebellious creativity and the concept of enjoying life have led the brand to create unique super watches. In its latest Excalibur Spider Unique Series Minute Repeater flying tourbillon watch in 2019, the brand reinterprets two major watchmaking features: applying the Minute Repeater timing mechanism and flying tourbillon to a carbon fiber case with a carbon fiber outer-ring and bezel, consolidating the brand’s high-end position in the field of complex precision mechanical watches.
Compared to traditional Minute Repeater watch or Tourbillon watches, the new Excalibur Spider unique series is one of the few Minute Repeater watches on the market with a high-tech sports case.
This watch is equipped with a flying tourbillon movement and is connected by two micro-automatic dials. The 47 mm case is very modern and expressive. This is the brand’s latest premium watch. Roger Dolby combines these two popular and exquisite unique composite functions, using SMC composite carbon fiber materials to create a brand new watch, showing the brand’s legendary creativity and rebellious skills, and then climbing to a new peak. At the same time, the flying tourbillon of this watch reflects the unique style of the iconic star-shaped hollow frame, and the ingenious aesthetic design creates more space for the expression of other elements.

In this Minute Repeater chronograph, Roger Dubuis boldly uses carbon fiber materials, combining 18th-century functions and modern technology, to reinterpret classic design in a new way. Carbon fiber is an extremely light and mechanically resistant material. In the case of complex functions, it can ensure the best wearing comfort. At the same time, the sound of this watch is not affected by the surrounding environment and the sound quality is the purest.

In addition to tinnitus, the visual experience of this watch is also extraordinary. Roger Du has specially designed three devices: the first is a beep display at 10 o’clock position to show the operation of the timekeeping mechanism; the second is a functional display at 3 o’clock position to indicate the crown is on the chain or time setting state; the last is the “All or Nothing” protection device display at 8 o’clock position, which is used to show whether the push-button is pushed deep enough to start the time reporting mechanism. In addition, the combination of the minute repeater and the flying tourbillon perfectly embodies the Roger Dubuis’s incalculable and sophisticated watch manufacturing process, as well as the significant technical progress it brings.
