If you’re somebody with an unflinching focus on performance and possess a fearless dedication to pushing boundaries, the chances are that Roger Dubuis is the brand for you. Its clients are exceptional individuals of the kind who naturally expect timepieces as unique as they are.
Now, the Maison has chosen to support rising Mexican boxing star Santos Saúl Álvarez Barragán (aka Saul Canelo Alvarez or simply ‘Canelo’). Multiple world champion in two weight classes, Canelo is ranked as the world’s best active boxer, pound for pound. At his highly anticipated September 15th rematch against current WBA, WBC, IBF and IBO middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin, as well as at the pre-fight press conference, he will embody the identity codes of the Maison. This will include sporting the Roger Dubuis logo on his shorts during this pivotal prizefight.
Taking the first step into this partnership, Roger Dubuis is unveiling a reinterpretation of its signature Excalibur Automatic Skeleton which is known for its combination of technical excellence and stylistic extravagance. The model is in black and gold and is made keeping in mind Canelo’s colours of choice on this momentous occasion. In addition to a strap made from the champion boxer’s own boxing gloves, the Roger Dubuis skillset has been applied to transforming Canelo’s initials into the jumper spring, a functional part of the watch movement.
