Roger Dubuis Excalibur Quatuor Silicon
As a watch brand seemingly built on the motto of "love it or hate it," the 48mm Quatuor from Roger Dubuis represents the highest level of innovation. A feat of design that truly boggles the mind — the watch takes some 2,400 hours to build — the movement incorporates four sprung balances, not tourbillons, which continuously account for the effects of gravity and thereby increases the precision of the movement. Housed inside the silicon case, chosen for its low weight and incomparable hardness, are four escapements, beautifully displayed at diagonal angles in an Excalibur case, from which sound is emitted in unison. Despite its complication of almost 600 parts, it simply shows the time in an atmosphere that’s comparable to art or theater. Now that’s rich.
