The Mesmerizing Roger Dubuis Excalibur Quatuor Cobalt MicroMelt
Roger Dubuis’ amazing projects are never subtle, but avant-garde and possibly outrageous. The Swiss watchmaker’s new Quatour Cobalt MicroMelt is the first timepiece in the world to be made out of a high-performance alloy called Cobalt Chrome, a special material mix which benefits from a very high specific strength and biocompatibility.
Featuring a totally unique look and four balances, also a world premiere, this new timepiece from Roger Dubuis seems to ignore the effects of gravity. It comes with a sleek 48 mm cobalt chrome case, which required a complex process to reach completion, and it’s apparently more resistant than you could ever imagine.
This stunning watch will be able to handle 50 meters deep waters, powered by an in house hand-wound RD101 Quatuor movement, with 590 components and backed up by 40 hours of power reserve. But what’s even more impressive is the stunning color theme on this timepiece, with a unique blue PVD coated plate and bridges, and a matching dial and flange, taking the charm of this watch off the charts.
The alligator strap also comes in blue, complemented by red stitching, with a Grade 5 titanium folding clasp. Please note that the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Quatuor Cobalt MicroMelt will set you back 390,000 CHF and only 8 lucky people will get to enjoy one.
