Roger Dubuis has launched a new timepiece from the iconic Knights of the Round Table collection. This new creation unites rare artistic mastery, outstanding craftsmanship and unbridled creativity.
This pink gold watch boasts the emblematic Knights of the Round Table dial design. Made of 18k 750/1000 pink gold, the twelve hour-markers are shaped after armed knights.
Dressed in medieval armour with plates, shield and helmet, each of these micro-sculptures has its own unique postures. The transparent blood-red flange and the magma inspired texture on the black dial are made of from precious Murano glass.
The 18K gold case incorporates signature details like notched bezel and three-legged strap attachments. The crown and its protector are intentionally shaped like the guard of a sword, designed to appear as if a blade is stuck inside the watch. The transparent sapphire crystal ring under the bezel provides the view of the knights.
The Roger Dubuis Knights of the Round Table is equipped with the automatic Monobalancier RD821 calibre. This movement maintains the excellentest standards of hand-finishing and haute-horlogerie artistry, according to the criteria of the Poinçon de Genève.
Visible through the exhibition case back, the oscillating weight of the movement spotlights a circular finish comprised of two woven layers of tilted pyramid shapes that create the appearance of castle-stained glass. Inspired by the triangular notches around the edge of the timepiece, this sophisticated design choice provides a fascinating view of the rotor moving inside the mosaic.
Secured with four screws, the pink gold case-back also features the engraving of the famous oath: “Around this table, the bravest knights will gather as equals. They will set forth in search of adventure, righting wrongs, protecting the weak and humbling the proud.”
This new Excalibur Knights of the Round Table watch comes with a black calf leather strap featuring a Quick Release System.
Limited to 28 pieces, this timepiece is available exclusively in Roger Dubuis boutiques.
