Through the gorges and over the mountains, from May 23rd to 29th 2017 Run to Monaco gives you the driving thrill you will never forget.
This incredible journey of supercar owners from around the world combines exhilarating driving through assiduously planned routes and stylish world-class experiences in breathtaking settings, covering more than 1000km running from Bordeaux to Monaco.
With its fantastic scenery, stunning performance, adrenaline-pumping excitement and total luxury from start to finish, the Run to Monaco undoubtedly qualifies as one of life’s extraordinary experiences.
Roger Dubuis introduces the perfect partner for the Run To Monaco – Excalibur Spider Pirelli. Playing with the famous color codes of Pirelli, the surprise comes from the strap featuring rubber inlays from certified Pirelli winning tyres having competed in real races – and adorned with legendary tread motifs reproducing the profile of a Pirelli Cinturato™ intermediate tyre.
Inside the Excalibur 42 is a new Roger Dubuis in-house created automatic movement. Really well made, it sports a micro-rotor and amazing finishing. Roger Dubuis does not necessarily come across as you can, but they are principally a movement manufacturer at heart. Just think of all the tourbillons (in addition to dual tourbillons) that they create. Oh, and the limited edition versions of the Excalibur 42 possess a different movement called the RD622. It’s basically the same since the RD620 automatic, but sans a subsidiary seconds dial.Overall I enjoy the new Excalibur 42 collection, but still favor the bigger size and slightly more intricate dials of the past. At this size a bit of femininity takes over making these “uni-sex” watches. They are still masculine at heart, but few guys at Roger Dubuis would select one of these over a Pulsion. In the end it is just another bold, acquired taste style with an excellent looking in-house made motion from Roger Dubuis. Cost likely starts north of $10,000.
