Roger Dubuis Lights Up The Night

The limited-edition Excalibur Blacklight Trilogy glows in the dark

By Terry Christodoulou 17/06/2019

Geneva-based watchmaker Roger Dubuis has a reputation for daring designs, and its latest collection, the Excalibur Blacklight Trilogy is no exception, allowing collectors to boldly venture into the dark while showing off their timepiece.

Featuring an artistic iteration or the iconic RD820SQ calibre, the watch takes on the ‘Astral Skeleton’ movement and adds microtubes of lab-grown sapphires, which glow under UV light, illuminating the intricacies of the mechanism.

The timepiece is punctuated by a singular diamond in its centre, while the skeletonised 42mm case is available in either white or pink gold, with a bezel set with round diamonds in typical Dubuis jagged style. The dial and hour markers are rhodium plated, and the watch has a power reserve of 60 hours.

With the collection limited to just 204 pieces in total, there is a 28-piece limited edition with pink alligator strap and pink gold case, an 88-piece edition with blue alligator strap and white gold case, and a black alternative in DLC titanium.
