Pirelli is a pioneer in technical and industrial innovations and is the sole supplier of premium tyres to the world’s flagship motorsports competitions. Roger Dubuis men’s replica devotes its skill in architectural and technical mechanics to delivering a wearer experience extending far beyond the timepiece itself, to embrace an entire lifestyle. One of the strong values shared by the two pioneering firms is their commitment to placing their resolutely state-of-the-art approach to their respective domains at the service of an exclusive lifestyle.
And what better way for Roger Dubuis to both literally and metaphorically ‘attach’ a model to an incredible experience than to fit timepieces with straps featuring rubber inlays from certified Pirelli winning motorsport tyres having competed in real races – and adorned with legendary tread motifs reproducing the profile of a Pirelli CinturatoTM intermediate tyre? The powerful connection with a specific emblematic event location is further symbolised by the blue colour of the two dedicated ‘Pirelli’ timepieces launched at the SIHH 2017 and also picked up in the strap stitching.
The Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Pirelli Replica replica concept, which extends the unique Roger Dubuis skeleton principle beyond the movement to encompass external elements such as the bezel and flange, provides the ideal showcase for this significant colour coding scheme – even extending to the outer rims framing the luminescent tips of the openworked hands.
