By day, the orange and fuschia-colored micro-beams spread inside the caliber, placed like rays of light going through the mechanism. Come nightfall, switch on the UV, and prepare to dazzle – the neon-like tubes inside the movement burst into an illuminated spectacle. Inspired to push creative boundaries beyond their signature light motifs, these new Excalibur Blacklight MB watches incorporate playful hues for a fresh, contemporary look. Limited to just eight pieces worldwide, the Excalibur Blacklight epitomizes the exclusivity and rarity that Roger Dubuis is known for.

One of the  highlights of the evening was the performance by a mentalist, who enthralled the watch enthusiasts with his incredible mind reading and psychic acts. He wowed the crowd by revealing personal details about select attendees and predicting elements like passwords and PIN numbers written on secret notes. His flawless illusions and linkages left everyone spellbound, including the Roger Dubuis executives.
