Excalibur Self-Winding with Micro-Rotor and Flying Tourbillon / Roger Dubuis


Presented this January at SIHH 2011 trade show, the new Roger Dubuis Excalibur Self-Winding with Micro-Rotor and Flying Tourbillon Limited Edition (Ref. EX45-520-20-00/0ER01/B) automatic watch sports a dial layout, which is ideologically similar to that of the gorgeous Piaget Emperador Coussin Tourbillon Ultra-Thin automatic timekeeper also presented earlier this year.

As you can see on the photo above, the new watch comes with two sub-dials that animate its face.

The first one –a flying tourbillon carriage at 7 o’clock– looks quite familiar and even somewhat pestered.

The second one –a skeletonized micro-rotor at 11 o’clock– still looks very fresh and quite inviting. Thankfully, there are still very few watches on the market that show this simple, yet very entertaining complication — via World Watch Review
