The Excalibur Knights of the Round Table is an iconic watch collection from the Geneva based Hyper Horology atelier Roger Dubuis. Inspired by the medieval legend, this series combines combine artistic mastery, horological craftsmanship and contemporary design. It now welcomes a new edition endowed with the emblematic Monotourbillon mechanism.
The very recognizable face of the Excalibur Knights of the Round Table watch is made of twelve micro-sculptures – the Knights – placed around a dial – the Table. The Knights are handcrafted in Pink Gold 750/1000 and represent the 12 characters involved in the quest. Each knight is just 6mm tall, created with his own personality and equipped with armour.
The table is made of gems or precious materials or materials requiring specific techniques, and symbolizes the unity and equality of the Knights. The watch houses an exceptional automatic calibre, manufactured in the Roger Dubuis workshops and certified by the Poinçon de Genève, one of the most demanding certifications in Haute Horlogerie.
In this new watch, the Knights of the Round Table levels up by offering a central monotourbillon calibre. The monotourbillon emerges from the center table. It is a new calibre specifically developed for this timepiece and certified by the Poinçon de Genève.
The centre table is made of crystal sapphire with color blocks in purple hues. The hands are also made of rotating crystal sapphire discs. The two gold markers indicate the position of the minute and hour with perfectly centred rotating discs. The translucent purple blocks are carved from Murano glass. They appear to levitate around the Monotourbillon. The double surfaced flange is carved from a single block of Murano glass too.
In keeping with the design, and to respect the position of the knight at 3 o’clock, the setting system is decentred to a position at 2 o’clock. Push down on this function and a small red flag indicates that the timepiece has moved from winding to setting mode.
The Roger Dubuis Excalibur Knights of the Round Table Monotourbillon features a 45mm diameter Pink Gold 750/1000 case sealed by a notched bezel. The timepiece comes with an embossed black calf-leather strap.
