Roger Dubuis' Excalibur Double Tourbillon Skeleton Wins Prestigious Award

Nov 19, 2009
The Architectural Digest Mexico, which happens to be one of the world-famous architecture, design and lifestyle magazines, has recently conducted a special ceremony in order to award distinctions to the most talented architects and designers in Mexico. The event was held for the 5th year in a row, on November 12th, 2009.

The Architectural Digest Mexico’s Editorial Board has studied over 650 projects in order to select candidates worthy of the “Icons of Design” awards, which are regarded as the most important and popular in the domain of design and architecture.

The candidates, who earn a place on the winners’ rostrum, are usually bestowed with a special prize, which represents a masterpiece, born by one of Mexico’s most gifted modern sculptors or artists. This year, it was sculptor Jorge Marin who carried out an honorable mission of creating a trophy, namely a bronze sculpture of a wing.

Before making the final decision, the jury, chaired by Mrs Liza Echeverria, thoroughly studied every project in terms of its functionality, aesthetics, level of innovation, originality and quality. Eventually, the judges bestowed the awards on winners in 17 categories, which succeeded in demonstrating both architectural and technological accomplishments.

In the course of this remarkable event, Cartier was regarded worthy of the prize, presented to the brand for its creativity in the jewelry sector. Another winner of the ceremony was Roger Dubuis, which was awarded with the prestigious Watchmaking trophy for its Excalibur Double Tourbillon Skeleton watch.

With its bold design and distinctive features, the timepiece is an undeniable highlight of all the collections, issued by the manufacture. The Excalibur watch is also distinguished by its case, which accommodates all the brand’s complicated and highly complicated movements. Its real flair lies, however, in the double tourbillon movement, which offers up a supremely sophisticated architecture, created in the spirit of respect for the best horological traditions.

As Watches.InfoNIAC.com found out, the Roger Dubuis brand has gained a strong foothold in Latin America and in Mexico in particular, commercializing its creations in the flagship boutiques in the country.
