Here comes a cool video and cool pictures! Jean-Marc Pontroué, CEO Roger Dubuis, showing me the Excalibur Quatuor.
I have been exclusively posting about the Excalibur Quatuor already before the SIHH. Now Jean-Marc showed his new masterpiece and I was able to film the “noise” of the four escapements. For me the sound of a V8-big-block …
The watch normally is not given out of the hands of one of the watchmakers that has assembled it. If you are lucky you may see it but not necessarily touch it . We do talk about an investment of 355.000 Swiss Francs without taxes. Some are more lucky and so was able to take close photographs of that masterpiece and film it to present you its amazing sound. I attached a sensible microphone at the case and started filming. Compared to the average of a normal watch the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Quatuor sounds like good old V8-big-block. Its a very particular sound and I hope you will enjoy the short video. One thing: Turn the volume of your speakers up
Jean-Marc thank you for your time and for showing me your masterpiece!!
But Jean-Marc also showed me the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Knights of the Round Table. This is also an incredible watch since all the little knights are hand-made out of gold and then put on the dial. Please have a look …
So here are the two videos of the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Quatuor.
All technical details and how the watch works you do find HERE
The black dot at reight side of that movie is my microphone… It does NOT belong to the watch
This watch was really hard to photograph, with my macro I highlighted various parts of the fascinating movement. Please find it out by just enlarging my photographs …
Roger Dubuis Excalibur Knights of the Round Table. Once again a watch VERY difficult to photograph under the conditions given. So I hope you will be still able to discover the beauty of that watch. By clicking twice on my photographs you can really enlarge them
