“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are.
 I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them.”

Roger Dubuis Excalibur Automatic Skeleton


Excalibur Automatic Skeleton in Titanium DLC



The first ever Roger Dubuis skeletonised automatic movement, code-named RD820SQ, is the star of the show in a fascinating line-up of Excalibur Automatic Skeleton models. Framed by the iconic Excalibur design features expressed through a pleasing variety of materials, this eminently versatile calibre embodies the essence of elegance and refinement conveyed in the language of architectural and technical mechanics.

The iconic Excalibur collection by Roger Dubuis features several hand-wound models showcasing its self-assigned mission as the “pioneer of contemporary skeletons” as well as its acknowledged expertise in the realm of tourbillons. Well aware that many mechanical watch fans also appreciate the reliability and convenience of automatic movements, the Manufacture introduced its self-winding RD820SQ calibre in 2015 comprising 167 individually finished parts.

The current range of options available in various materials provides plenty of scope for adjusting the choice of model to individual preferences. The warm glow of pink gold (even set with gems for extra sparkle), the cool splendour of white gold, the edgy appeal of contemporary DLC-coated titanium, or the sporty, high-tech look of superlight carbon fibre sheet moulding compound (SMC)…. The one and only RD820SQ movement shines more brightly than ever in a fascinating constellation of Excalibur Automatic Skeleton models.
