Uk Cheap Fake Roger Dubuis Excalibur Quatuor Cobalt MicroMelt Watches

Let’s be honest, subtlety isn’t one of Roger Dubuis’ strong suits. The brand is more recognized for its avant-garde and often outrageous designs and inventions. In 2013, it stunned the watchmaking world with the eye-catching Excalibur Quatuor watch (hands-on here). And now, Luxury replica Roger Dubuis wathces is at it again with its new Quatour Cobalt MicroMelt watch, which happens to be the first watch in the world to be made out of a high-performance alloy called cobalt chrome.

In case you’ve forgotten, the Quatuor is so-called because it was the first watch in the world to have four balances – all in the name negating the harmful effects that gravity has on timekeeping. In addition, in another world-first, there was also a limited edition of the Quatuor that has a case made out of silicon. It is, therefore, fitting that Roger Dubuis has done it again by being the first watch to use cobalt chrome.

Cobalt chrome is an alloy with a very high specific strength and biocompatibility, and it is used widely in the medical and aeronautical industries to make turbines, artificial knee and hip joints, and even dental crowns.

According to Roger Dubuis, the cobalt chrome case of the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Quatuor Cobalt MicroMelt watch is produced using an exclusive process called MicroMelt. This involves a long list of processes that include melting and atomizing the alloy into a fine powder before being blended and poured into canisters where they are sealed and pressed to produce highly dense hot-rolled bars. The MicroMelt process ensures that the resultant product is uniform in its density, which translates to higher strength. High strength aside, the use of this unique alloy also means that the exact replica Roger Dubuis Excalibur Quatuor Cobalt MicroMelt watches has a sheen that is unlike any stainless steel or titanium case watch.

Inside, the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Quatuor Cobalt MicroMelt watch is powered by the same hand-wound RD101 Quatuor movement with 590 components. All sale replica Roger Dubuis movements are certified with the Geneva Seal – and we visited their manufacture to learn exactly what that entails here. With 40 hours of power reserve, the four balances beat with a combined frequency of 16Hz or 115,200vph and are linked by five differentials to average out the rate. In theory, this should cancel out the effects that gravity has on each balance. It is a visually arresting movement, but more notably, people who have handled the watch in the flesh all say that because of its four balances, it makes a unique sound unlike any other watch.

To complement the unique look of the 48mm-wide, 18.38mm-thick cobalt chrome case (water-resistant to 50m), the RD101 movement in the Excalibur Quatuor Cobalt MicroMelt watch has unique blue PVD coated plate and bridges. The dial and flange have been coated with blue PVD as well, and the main dial itself also has a red and white printed minute track and rhodium plated index.UK replica Roger Dubuis watches alligator strap also comes in blue and has red stitches to match. The folding clasp, however, isn’t made of cobalt chrome. Instead, it is made out of Grade 5 titanium. In any case, it all makes for a very striking watch.

UK Luxury Replica Roger Dubuis adds colored stones to the Excalibur Spider Skeleton Flying Tourbillon

What do we know about Roger Dubuis? Well, to make it short, Roger Dubuis is a proper manufacture of Haute Horlogerie, creating extremely refined skeleton movements, and being the only brand to have its entire production stamped with the Hallmark of Geneva (and that alone must already give an indication of the beauty of the production…). Roger Dubuis is also a combination of complex mechanisms with a unique design, bold, sporty and clearly recognizable. Well, all of that can be seen in the latest addition to the catalogue, the cheap replica Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Skeleton Flying Tourbillon, which now receive colored stones incrusted in its rubber bezel.

The Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Skeleton Flying Tourbillon is not a new watch and its movement (by the way a properly magnificent movement, as we’ve seen here) has been seen already in several watches. That must not prevent us to take a look back at it. Exact fake Roger Dubuis watches is first of all a great manufacture, producing superb movements, mostly skeletonized ones, and many of them carrying a tourbillon – or two. All the movements of the manufacture are finished with extreme care and all come with the Hallmark of Geneva engraved on their bridges. The Calibre RD505SQ of the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Skeleton Flying Tourbillon is no exception to the rule.

The Calibre RD505SQ (SQ stands for squelette, which means skeleton in French) comprises 165 individual parts, measures 16″ (16 ligne is approx. 36 mm) and 5.70mm in height. The balance makes 21,6000 vph (3Hz). This hand-wound movement has one main spring barrel that is skeletonized, so the main spring itself is visible. It’s located at the 1 o’clock position and delivers power for 60 hours of autonomy, when fully wound. The 19 jewel movement is adjusted in six positions (one additional positioned compared to 99.9% of all movements on the market). The skeleton bridges are anthracite rhodium plated, circular grained (a extremely fine graining) and the tourbillon cage has been black polished. Talking about the tourbillon, the one in the cheap replica Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Skeleton Flying Tourbillon entirely exposed on the front of the watch and shows a spectacular finishing. The cage itself is just superb.

At the SIHH 2015, Roger Dubuis already showed us the first edition of the Excalibur Spider Skeleton, which was coming with a world premiere: a rubber bezel with incrusted diamonds (diamonds are usually incrusted in a solid material, to make sure they maintain in place). This watch, with a bold 3D look, has a 45mm black-DLC titanium case, with complex hollowed lugs and casebands, attached to a rubber strap. This combination of a sporty and large case with the delicate skeletonized tourbillon movement, which looks like a spider web combined with a star, is what makes Dubuis’ watches so special.

To follow with the first edition, showing classical white diamonds, this year the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Skeleton Flying Tourbillon receives colored stones. While usually not big fans of gems watches here at Monochrome, especially for men, we must admit that what RD did is quite interesting. The stones are graphically shaped and flat on their surface. The choice of colors is also quite masculine, with blue (sapphires), red (rubies) or black (black spinels), and is complemented by matching details on the dial (hands, indexes, tracks and logos). These stones, like in the diamond edition, are also incrusted in a rubber bezel. A bold watch that must be assumed by its wearer for sure, but still a highly interesting piece of horology.

UK Cheap Replica Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Americas Edition Watch

Limited editions in the world of luxury watches are quite commonplace. When you start talking about watches that are a limited release, and limited to a particular country, things sometimes get interesting. This often takes the form of a watch that is available only through a boutique that resides in said country. That is precisely what we have going on here with a new iteration of the luxury replcia Roger Dubuis Exalibur Spider Americas Edition available exclusively through the Roger Dubuis New York boutique.

Roger-Dubuis-Excalibur-Spider-Americas-Edition

Yes, that’s right, watch fans – this is an American-only watch (USA! USA!). Well, ok, anyone can buy it, sure – but they will have to travel over to New York to pick one of the twenty pieces up. Should you find yourself in that position, you will be getting not only the very scooped-out “spider web” look of the hand-wound RD505SQ calibre (which also looks like stars to me), you will also have a flying tourbillon whirling away on your wrist. With extremely skeletonized watches, like we have here with the exact copy Roger Dubuis Exalibur Spider Americas Edition, I am frankly amazed at the work done on the dial and case.

By that, I mean how tidy-looking things are kept, all while keeping the “interesting” bits exposed, and tucking everything else away in layers under the structure that still remains. The tiny machines are amazing, and then when you constrain yourself with these sorts of limits, that does certainly elevate things a good bit. Unfortunately, it also afflicts the watch with something that hits a lot of these skeletons – reduced legibility.

That said, you are likely not going to mind having to stare at a watch like the UK replica Roger Dubuis Exalibur Spider Americas Edition for a bit longer in order to tell the time. And who knows, maybe in person, those white-filled tips on the hands (one presumes lumed as well) are easier to pick out in the 45mm case than the pictures suggest. I just know that the rest of the hand being dark as it is will make it tricky. Yes, it blends thematically with the movement/dial, but I could certainly go for some contrast – say, fully red hands.

Speaking of color, that was another somewhat odd choice in my book for a USA-exclusive watch. This version of the Roger Dubuis Exalibur Spider features red and yellow accents – I would have figured something more to the red, white, and blue scheme could have been executed. Expected? Sure, but it could be done well (in fact, swapping yellow for blue on this watch would do it), and seems like a miss on this particular version. Then again, there must be a reason for it, and I’m sure those who are more well-versed in the world of UK cheap replica Roger Dubuis watches will let me know in the comments below.

I also have to call out that, for all the airy-ness of the design, it still comes in at a fairly hefty 13.75mm thick – guess all those gears have to hide somewhere (hint: it’s vertically). That aside, for those who want an amazing bit of timekeeping architecture on their wrist, the 20-piece edition of the Roger Dubuis Exalibur Spider Americas Edition is available at their New York boutique at a price of $167,500, at Roger Dubuis 545 Madison Avenue, New York.
