Best Swiss Watches: The Excalibur Quatuor Literally Defies Gravity

There is a new entrant to the ranks of the best Swiss watches.

Best Swiss watches have long incorporated the newest innovations in technology, design, and craftsmanship. Now Roger Dubuis takes this one step further with a new entrant into the ranks of high end luxury watches: the Excalibur Quatuor in Titanium DLC.

This limited edition watch will be unveiled to the public in April 2014 as part of the opening festivities associated with the newest Roger Dubuis boutique store, opening in the prestigious and luxurious IFC Mall in Hong Kong. Patrons must book appointments in advance to view the Excalibur Quatuor at the Roger Dubuis Boutique Hong Kong, IFC, and each appointment will include a personal showing of this truly exquisite luxury Swiss watch. Reservations for these personal appointments can be made at RogerDubuis.com, and people interested in viewing true luxury craftsmanship, as well as the latest watch movement technology, are urged to sign up early to secure their personal viewing.

What Makes the Excalibur Quatuor One of the Best Swiss Watches

What makes the Excalibur Quatuor in Titanium DLC worthy to be included among the best Swiss watches? First, consider the design. The newest entrant in the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Collection, the Excalibur Quatuor has been expertly constructed to represent the World of the Warrior and the strength, brilliance, and discipline that is included in the Warrior's mind and spirit. Like other watches in the Excalibur Collection, this watch is evocative of the legendary Knights of the Round Table, only unlike other Roger Dubuis Excalibur watches, the Excalibur Quatuor is designed to represent the Dark Knight. It is resolutely technical, and combines lightness and strength with incredible durability.

However, the design itself is not what sets the Excalibur Quatuor apart. The true horological enthusiast must also consider the movement. The Excalibur Quatuor in Titanium DLC includes a RD101 movement combined with four carefully sprung balances to assist the watch in making perpetual, incremental adjustments to its timekeeping as it experiences different microshifts in gravity.

Yes, gravity. Believe it or not, microshifts in gravity work to slowly pull a watch out of alignment over the course of a day. When the wearer raises or lowers the arm, these microshifts in gravity affect the delicate watch movements and cause them to lose or gain time. This time difference seems hardly noticeable to the naked eye, but it is a key concern for fine watchmakers. After all, seconds lost quickly add up, and a watch that loses time steadily over the course of the day is a watch that is not worth wearing.

Watchmakers have been attempting to address these microshifts in gravity ever since the invention of the classic tourbillon watch movement in the late 1700s. The Excalibur Quatuor is a huge leap forward in progress, because it performs the same job the tourbillon does much more quickly. In other words: what the classic tourbillon movement achieves over the course of a minute, the Excalibur Quatuor achieves instantly, keeping the watch in perfect time.

This new quatuor movement is exclusive to the Roger Dubuis company and is one more example of how Roger Dubuis leads the way in Haute Horlogerie, or fine watchmaking. Like all watches in the Roger Dubuis manufacture, the Excalibur Quatuor in Titanium DLC has received the Poincon De Geneve, or Hallmark of Geneva. This is the most demanding signature in fine watchmaking, and is accorded to each watch on a case by case basis after careful examination. There are many luxury Swiss manufacturers out there, but only the Roger Dubuis company has received 100% Poincon De Geneve certification on every single watch in its manufacture.

The Excalibur Quatuor in Titanium DLC also includes:
•    A hand-wound mechanical movement
•    113 jewels
•    5 differentials
•    4 balance wheels
•    40 hours of power
•    A power reserve indicator
•    Water resistance to 3 bars, or 20 meters
•    A rhodium-coated, circular grained decor
•    A hand-stitched, black genuine alligator strap
