At the 2017 SIHH Watch Fair, the brand once again released the ‘Flood Beast’ and grandly launched the brand’s world-first Excalibur carbon fiber watch. Combining lightness and solidity, and incorporating Roger Dubuis’ cutting-edge watchmaking technology, it attracted widespread attention once it was exhibited. Let’s take a look at its style together! (Watch model: RDDBEX0572)
Lighter, thinner and more durable
The watch case is made of T700 carbon fiber. Compared to other carbon fibers, T700 carbon fiber has a uniformly distributed structure, which is enough to reduce the porosity by 8%, which means that the same amount of material can reduce the weight by 30%. Applied to the 10-degree angle between the main splint and the bridge of the movement, the layered carbon fiber has also undergone a delicate and complicated manufacturing process, which makes the movement and the ring have the same pattern, which has become a sophisticated model for expressing aesthetic effects with technical processes.
