Wearing an Excalibur 36 is a way of reading the time gracefully. The hours, minutes and seconds are displayed in beautiful contemporary cases that effortlessly incorporate the line’s design codes. For the first time, bracelets in steel and pink gold add their own elegance to this subtle collection in which design and superb watchmaking come together.
Throughout the history of the Excalibur 36 line, elegance has been one of its permanent characteristics. The pure design of its graphic 36 mm case reveals the true nature and watchmaking pedigree of this iconic collection. It retains the characteristics of expertise and controlled power that distinguish the world of the Warrior that has inspired it.
Just as the skills of swordsmanship were constantly practised, the smallest details have been analysed and refined to fully convey the richness and balance that characterise this watch. With its new bracelets in steel and pink gold, the Excalibur 36 infuses contemporary style with a lively new spirit.
An experienced eye soon sees that the Excalibur 36 uses simple lines to express its true brand’s DNA. They reveal dials that are satin-brushed in a sunburst pattern and finished with a semi-matt varnish or a rhodium coating. The dial, with strong graphics in black, white or blue, seems to have blossomed to open up to the world. The 36 mm case of the Excalibur 36 in pink gold or steel emphasises its shape and curves with alternate polished and fine-brushed finishes. Its transparent sapphire case-back reveals the careful finishing and “Côtes de Genève” decoration of the Roger Dubuis mechanical calibre RD821.
It comprises 172 components, runs at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations/hour (4 Hz) and has a 48-hour power reserve. To complete its ultra-demanding approach, Roger Dubuis submits its movements and watches to a leading independent control authority: the Geneva Seal. It remains the only Manufacture whose entire production is stamped with this prestigious Seal.
Excalibur 36 steel and diamonds
In the Excalibur 36 collection, the three Excalibur 36 steel and diamonds models have found their ideal role. Their steel case gives them a timeless appeal and a graphic identity which incorporates the collection’s DNA.
The first model, with its bracelet in blue alligator matching the tones of the dial, represents elegance in every situation. The other two watches with a steel bracelet seem to echo the sequence of night and day with their respective black and white dials. The steel bracelet, with polished rows outside the satin-finished centre, gives the two pieces a unique, precious finish.

The emotional impact of this piece begins with the superb case in pink gold. It extends into the magic of the satin-finished bracelet, the DNA codes that are echoed in the collection and the grace of the entire presentation.
Two unique models make a jewellery collection in which design and beautiful watchmaking are perfectly combined. By giving these two pieces a satin or a matt finish, Roger Dubuis shares its vision of precious watchmaking that cleverly enhances the wrist. With its deep commitment to continuity, the Geneva watchmaker has imbued these two creations with the daring that has distinguished it since its foundation.
The first is an icon of jewellery offering a beautiful mechanism and a powerful design. The brand’s craftsmen have raised the bar in developing an ultra precious piece – its bezel is set with 48 diamonds (approx. 0.99 carats) – whose charm is matched by its virtuoso performance.
The second model represents the avant-garde spirit of Roger Dubuis in a piece of true jewellery excellence. It embraces beauty and extreme preciousness with its bracelet: 708 brilliant-cut diamonds, totalling 4.25 carats, form two symmetrical rows on either side of the polished centre. The magic continues on the bezel set with 48 diamonds totaling 0.99 carats. Echoing this flamboyant display, the pink gold of the watch continues up to the Roman numerals delicately applied on the dial and on the circle around the small seconds counter at 6 o’clock.
