Roger Dubuis × Pirelli Collaboration

Roger Dubuis – Hitting the Slopes of Aspen

Daring and duality are an integral part of everything Roger Dubuis does. Tradition with a contemporary twist is embedded in its DNA, along with excess to the point of extravagance. In parallel, Roger Dubuis timepieces are the ultimate embodiment of exclusive production expressing a seldom seen level of quality. The brand epitomizes technicity, serving aestheticism to reveal unleashed creativity. This is made possible by an integrated approach fueled by creative engineers with a unique talent for drawing raw inspiration from other avant-garde industries. Nonconformist and indomitably free-spirited, Roger Dubuis displays unparalleled mastery of complications and shatters every known watchmaking cliché.

Experience: a priceless collector’s item

Guests at any Roger Dubuis event have learned to expect the unexpected from a brand that never misses an opportunity to spring exclusive experiences. Early 2020 was no exception to this rule as Aspen geared up to stage the latest in the Roger Dubuis range of far-out adventures.

On this occasion, surrounded by snowy peaks and legendary ski runs, a lucky few had the privilege of experiencing Roger Dubuis’ particular gift as a provider of unparalleled thrills. The many perfectly choreographed sensations lined up by Roger Dubuis at Aspen included an invitation to drive a Lamborghini on ice.

A brutal truth

Rooted in this unadulterated adrenaline rush is the latest embodiment of Roger Dubuis’ unshakable determination to defy existing watchmaking codes at every level. With its sporty aesthetics and famous Poinçon de Genève-certified astral skeleton signature (820SQ calibre), the 28-piece Excalibur Pirelli Ice Zero 2 Spider America Edition took Aspen by storm. The Excalibur Pirelli Ice Zero 2 owes its name to the new studded tire of the Pirelli range: a tire developed for high performance on ice in the most extreme winter conditions, similar to the ones that the guests experienced in Aspen.

The new watch features a gleaming natural titanium case, all offset by icy blue accents. It comes complete with a state-of-the-art ICE ZERO™ 2 studded tire strap with Pirelli Cinturato™ intermediate pattern on the inside. Owners also received an additional bimaterial strap featuring a black rubber base and blue rubberTech inlay. Characterized by a shared penchant for pushing the limits and a common focus on aesthetics in R&D-driven approaches, this iconic partnership is equally rooted in a focus on superlative technical engineering and ultra high-tech materials, along with an unfettered determination to stay ahead of the pack. The latest addition to Roger Dubuis’ iconic Excalibur line is living proof of the brutal truth of boldness that characterizes Roger Dubuis – spectacular sensations, wild emotions and the most creative complications on the watchmaking world.
