Roger Dubuis has led the charge in daring and innovative watchmaking, earning its reputation as the master of “hyper-horology”. The brand’s creations boast a bold and avant-garde design philosophy, resulting in futuristic and distinctive timepieces incorporating cutting-edge materials and complex mechanical movements. The Excalibur Spider Monobalancier Huracán Sterrato is a brilliant extension of the brand’s Excalibur line, taking inspiration from the off-road Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato released last year, only this time dressed in an alluring blue attire.

The Excalibur Spider Monobalancier Huracán Sterrato is a timepiece to celebrate the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato supercar built to conquer off-road terrain. The car is a marvel like no other, with its 5.2-litre V10 engine delivering a breathtaking 610 CV (449 kW) at 8,000 rpm and rocketing from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 3.4 seconds. This vehicle is not for the fainthearted; neither is the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Monobalancier Huracán Sterrato watch.

Taking cues from the Lamborghini supercar, the Excalibur case is crafted from Sheet Molding Compound Carbon, a hyper-technical material reminiscent of the Huracán’s monocoque chassis and body panels. The watch’s design pays homage to the Sterrato with enlarged lacquered markers on the titanium bezel inspired by the car’s fender protectors. The distinctive racing nut crown adds another element of sports and racing cars to the timepiece.

The watch is powered by the automatic RD630 calibre movement, explicitly developed for the partnership with Lamborghini Squadra Corse, and it mirrors the hexagonal air intakes of the Huracán. The balance wheel takes centre stage at noon, tilted at a 12° angle to evoke Sterrato’s rev counter. This ingenious design decision adds depth to the dial and potentially enhances precision by averaging out positional errors. The date display at 6 o’clock maintains the balance of the dial, while its rotation in front of a coloured decoder makes for a fascinating visual effect. With a transparent caseback, you’ll marvel at the semi-skeletonised movement and its full rotor, cleverly resembling an Huracán wheel rim in motion. The dynamic illusion of pure speed is captivating. The watch offers 60 hours of power reserve with twin barrels, ensuring reliability and performance.

Sporting a blue outfit, the new Huracán Sterrato watch features lines that cut across the dial, echoing the shape of the car’s roof rack. The timepiece boasts a quick-release system for rapid strap changes, allowing seamless adaptation to any occasion. The bright camo-patterned strap is a nod to the gritty abilities of the Huracán Sterrato, a remarkable feat achieved by vulcanising numerous coloured rubber plates.

When it comes to telling time, the hour and minute hands might blend into the dial, but there are other focuses. The watch’s essence lies in its experience, just like driving a Lamborghini is more about the thrilling journey than the destination. The Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Monobalancier Huracán Sterrato delivers a powerful and exhilarating experience, and it can be yours for USD 70,000, taxes not included. Please note only 28 will be made, and the first five customers to purchase the watch on the brand’s website will receive a “custom-made, hand-painted helmet” that echoes the watch’s looks.

  1. I “tested” a similar watch at the RD dealer in Costa Mesa. The watch is spectacular, but it is quite big and heavy. At 70k it should come with alligator straps of all colors, but I only plastic straps are available. The worst thing about this watch was the crown; it has a rubber gasket (the blue ring for this watch) and it is squeaky / has a squeaky feeling while winding. But there are few of them and available 🙂
