The ice cold launch of the Excalibur Pirelli Ice Zero 2 timepiece
Excalibur is Roger Dubuis’ favourite platform of expression. The watchmaking brand has drawn inspiration from other industries to defy existing watchmaking codes at every level.
One such example of these exclusive alliances is the now two-year-old and much acclaimed “Perfect Fit” partnership between tyre expert Pirelli and Roger Dubuis, characterised by privileged exclusivity and a common focus on aesthetics in the respective R&D driven approaches of each, along with technical engineering and high-tech materials. In February will thus see the pure adrenalin rush of a chance to test these brand-new high-power tyres at the Pirelli proving ground in Flurheden (Sweden), complete with a sneak preview of the latest Roger Dubuis interpretation of cutting-edge tyre technology.
In the latest graphic demonstration of these distinguishing features, Pirelli is gearing up for the spine-chilling launch of a new patented studded tyre developed for high performance on ice in the most winter conditions. With optimized and patented stud distribution and a tread design developed to achieve continuous grip and high driving comfort, the Pirelli Ice Zero™ is the ultimate demonstration of Pirelli’s expertise in the world of high-end tyres for premium vehicles – this time on snow and ice.
With this occassion Roger Dubuis presents the Excalibur Pirelli Ice Zero 2 timepiece. Part of Roger Dubuis’ iconic collection with its stated sport aesthetic and famous skeleton signature, and complete with double flying tourbillon, one of the world’s highest complications in the realm of Haute Horlogerie, the timepiece is powered by this Poinçon de Genève certified Calibre RD105SQ. The eight-piece limited edition timepiece gets off to a sizzling start with a strap complete with the same state-of-the-art steel nail studded pattern.
Consistently going the extra mile, Roger Dubuis takes this piece of watchmaking interpretation to the next level by removing the DLC treatment on the titanium super sports car style edges of this distinctive timepiece, highlighting the Excalibur Pirelli Ice Zero 2 timepiece’s own iconic contours in a stylish nod to its motorsports alter ego. The invigorating promise of a winter outing for well-wrapped up watch aficionados and fans of peak performance in extreme conditions.
