As a preview of the new 2013 collection, Roger Dubuis presented the Excalibur 42 Chronograph, a blue dial chronograph sold exclusively in the Roger Dubuis boutiques.
This model uses a generous 42 mm diameter case characterized by the style elements of the Excalibur line: the triple horns attaching the bracelet, the immediately identifiable fluted bezel and the slender Roman numerals. Its firmly masculine, sporting appeal is reinforced by a straight-line design.
The dial offers excellent readability with large seconds hand and 30 minute counter small hand in grey to make them immediately recognizable from hour, minute and small second hands. The date window at 6 o’clock is perfectly aligned to the romanic numeral at six o'clock.
The elegant steel case of the Excalibur 42 Chronograph houses the new RD681 automatic chronograph movement with a micro-rotor. Designed, developed and produced in the Roger Dubuis Manufacture, this calibre of 280 components combines aesthetic quality with performance. Employing the most advanced production techniques, it is certified by COSC, the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute, and is stamped with the prestigious Hallmark of Geneva.
