A hi-tech skeletonized sports watch, inspired by a tire. Well, not your usual tire, of course.
Roger Dubuis presented its new sporty collaboration with Perelli in Aspen, Colorado. On this occasion, surrounded by snowy peaks and glamorous ski runs, Lamborghini test-drives on ice and a snow mobile races were offered to a lucky few invited. And all for a reason: the Excalibur Pirelli Ice Zero 2 owes its name to the new studded tyre of the Pirelli range, developed for high performance on ice in the most extreme winter conditions. This Poinçon de Genève-certified skeleton coming as a limited edition of 28 pieces is dressed in a 45-mm natural titanium case with some rubber inlays and black DLC titanium coating. Its icy-blue accents nicely complement the blue tips of the two central hands, and of course, the lion’s share of the overall tech-y character comes from a trademark star-shaped bridge shining the right part of the fully transparent dial.
The Roger Dubuis Excalibur Pirelli Ice Zero 2 Spider America Edition features an automatic caliber RD820SQ with a micro-rotor and a 60-hour power reserve. But no matter the complexity and beauty of the movement, one of the most extraordinary design details here comes from a non-mechanical realm: we’re talking about a rubber strap mimicking the cutting-edge Ice Zero 2 studded Pirelli with an intermediate pattern on the inside. An additional bimaterial strap featuring a black rubber base and blue rubberTech inlay is also available.
