EXCALIBUR HURACÀN PERFORMANTE


There is a strong bond between the worlds of cars and watches. Think of this-cutting-edge performance, ferocious ground-breaking technology and super-sleek aesthetics….are they not shared values in both these worlds? We love the fact that the Excalibur Huracàn Performante just strengthens this belief. The watch is brimming with racing design codes thanks to the collaboration with Lamborghini.

The USP of this piece? Well, there are many. The brand-new ‘engine’- the RD630 movement with its 12° inclined balance wheel representing the calibre signature associated with Lamborghini for instance. Then, the watch takes strong visual cues from the shapes on which the supercar is based….the hexagon shape for instance that makes an appearance throughout. There is a new crown inspired by racing nuts on supercar wheels, a twin-barrel ‘energy tank’ and a multi-material ‘spoiler’, used for the decorative openworked bridges. Further, the watch also sports the very distinctive “Technical Titan Grey” livery along with the signature bright yellow accents. The lining of the genuine Alcantara strap of the Excalibur Huracán Performante watch also has a rubber inlay featuring the Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tyre pattern design. A spectacular engine in a mechanical wrist marvel! Raging mechanics on full display!
