After concluding their long-standing partnership with Blancpain in February this year, Lamborghini announced its newest watch sponsor for the Lamborghini Squadra Corse, Roger Dubuis. To mark their collaboration, Roger Dubuis revealed two new time pieces on 20th September at Lamborghini’s headquarter in Italy. The Excalibur Aventador S by Roger Dubuis and Lamborghini Squadra Corse encompasses both Swiss precision techniques with flamboyant Italian aesthetics.

The Excalibur Aventador S is heavily inspired by Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse, both in terms of design and mechanics. The watch features Roger Dubuis latest 312-part movement system, RD103SQ, which utilizes part of Dubuis latest duotour caliber, which is inspired by the double wheel concept. Furthermore, the 45-mm Spider watch cases utilize Lamborghini’s C-SMC or multi layered carbon.

The watch comes in two variants; the first model, Excalibur Aventador S in “Arancio Argos” orange watch, would have just eight manufactured pieces of the model and each priced at $216,000.  The second Excalibur Aventador S model, of which 88 pieces will be manufactured, is a tribute to Lamborghini by using its trademark “Giallo Orion” yellow. This version retails for $194,500.

As reflected in the watches’ robust design and sound technology, the partnership seems to be ideal with both the brands being the perfect fit for each other.
