Lamborghini and Roger Dubuis are becoming quite the team. Just weeks after the Italian supercar maker debuted the new Huracán STO, it has been given the limited-edition watch treatment.
Late last week, the Swiss watchmaker revealed a new hyperwatch based on the high-performance variant that, by the way, is heavily rumored to be the final Huracán. And like its muse, the timepiece offers a bold design that’s matched by high-performance mechanical components.
The first thing you’ll notice about the Excalibur Spider Huracán STO is its striking colorway. The watch’s dial, bezel and strap all include traces of Blue Laufey and California Orange, both of which feature prominently in the STO’s racing-inspired livery. The piece features a 45mm skeletonized carbon case with rubber inlays topped with a titanium bezel and metallicized sapphire crystal. The new strap, meanwhile, consists of perforated calfskin leather over a rubber interior liner.
Geneva-based Roger Dubuis just launched its new Excalibur Essenza SCV12 timepiece. And to make the introduction that much more exciting, the launch is concurrent with Lamborghini’s unveiling of the latest evolution of the SCV12 track-only hypercar.
An earlier alliance between the two esteemed brands resulted in the Excalibur Aventador S, which was the first result of their partnership. Not surprisingly, this watch, too, featured a range of design elements inspired by its car counterpart: two sprung balances inclined at 45 degrees, strut bars, a power reserve with racing codes and an Alcantara strap. And now, further demonstrating their affinity, Lamborghini Squadra Corse and Roger Dubuis are respectively and simultaneously unveiling the amazing hypercar and the “hyperwatch.”
Lamborghini’s newly evolved SCV12 is the first limited edition V12 engine-based hypercar for track only (40 cars in the edition), specially boosted for Super Trofeo races. It is fitted with the most powerful V12 naturally aspirated Lamborghini engine to date, combined with aerodynamics inspired by racing prototypes.
“The power is handled by a new X-trac sequential six-speed gearbox, combined with rear-wheel drive to ensure compactness, structural continuity, and greater torsional stiffness,” according to Lamborghini. “The Essenza SCV12 is also the first GT car developed to respect FIA [Federation Internationale de l’Automobile] prototype safety rules. Kinematic solutions inspired by racing prototypes have been adopted, such as the push-rod rear suspension installed directly on the gearbox.”
In creating the exciting new Excalibur Essenza SCV12, Roger Dubuis—known for its bold designs and equally bold spirit of invention—has evolved its Lamborghini-exclusive Roger Dubuis Duotor movement, stripping it down to essentials to enhance performance, while melding design codes shared by the timepiece and the car.
The barrel may be viewed from the top, designed to mimic the experience of peering through a supercar hood. The strut bars on the top of the caliber are a signature feature of Excalibur Lamborghini-inspired models. Details of the dial complement the car: the seconds hand and the outline of the hour and minute hands are in green, as is the crown and strap.
Lamborghini is renowned for its customized supercars, and Roger Dubuis aficionados may enjoy a similar level of service through its “Rarities” program, offering clients the opportunity to create a made-to-order version of any timepiece from its range of collections. This concept is designed to take bespoke timepieces into a whole new dimension of “hyper personalization,” and it enables each watch owner to enjoy the distinct thrill of co-creating and owning a truly one-of-a-kind version of the Excalibur Essenza SCV12. Dials, cases, gem setting, signed functional components, special prints or engravings—even the watch’s packaging may be customized.
Earlier this year, from May 29 until August 2, Roger Dubuis served as Official Timing Partner at “The Real Race,” a global sports competition organized by Lamborghini Squadra Corse blending real and virtual racing. Open to Assetto Corsa Competizione players of all levels, competitors were invited to compete in one of five qualifier events. The Grand Finale will be held in September of 2020.
