Even though the SIHH 2013 has ended during the last week, we still have some gorgeous pieces to present to you. We’re now looking at a new marvelous wristwatch under the signature of Roger Dubois, the Excalibur Quatuor.

The strongest point of this watch is its purpose – to instantaneously compensate for rate variations based on its position. The job of the tourbillon, it makes rate adjustments during a minute. This piece is as technically correct as it shall, featuring a 48 mm pink gold case, a staggering dial with anthracite interior flange, white minute track, power reserve and pink gold appliqués, alongside the so-important Geneva seal.

Inside this magnificent piece we can find the manually wound Roger Dubois Caliber RD101, one of the brand’s most innovative movements. The Excalibur Quatuor boasts with four intricately placed escapements, each quadrant of the watch including one, mounted at 45 degrees inclination.

They work in pairs to immediately compensate for the rate variations caused by even the most minute changes in the position of the gadget. The frequency the watch works at is 4 x 4 Hz, totalizing a staggering 16 Hz – even more incredible, this means 115,200 beats per hour.

To say the least, the extraordinary hand wound mechanical movement within this piece is rhodium coated, features a gorgeous perlage decor and bears the seal of Geneva. In addition, it comprises a total of 590 parts, 4 balance wheels, 5 differentials, minutes, hours and a 40 hour power reserve.

Do not expect any immediate ability to acquire such a wonderful wristwatch. Each piece in the 88-unit limited edition will be sold at 350,000 CHF.
