In 2013, the legend of King Arthur provided inspiration for the Excalibur Knights of the Round Table: 28 exceptional models featuring 12 knights at an enamel and decal reproduction of a Tudor green and cream painted English Oak Round Table made for Henry VIII. In 2015, Roger Dubuis introduces Excalibur Knights of the Round Table II, 28 pieces featuring 12 engraved and sculpted miniature bronze knights positioned around a precious, masterfully engraved, black jade dial. With the Excalibur Knights of the Round Table III hyperwatch, Roger Dubuis once again demonstrates the power of the sword. This forceful new interpretation of the legend of King Arthur’s Excalibur is inspired by the fabled island of Avalon, regarded as the place where the mighty sword was forged. In a radical combination of disruptive materials, extreme craftsmanship and sophisticated horological complications, state-of-the-art pink gold low poly-sculpted knights gather around a dramatic blue enamel table.
Ensuring both precision and reliability, self-winding Calibre RD 821 – an exclusive in-house movement such as those equipping all Roger Dubuis timepieces – drives the hour and minute functions while delivering a 48-hour power reserve. Like the knights, every detail of the movement is hand-finished according to the traditional criteria governing the prestigious Hallmark of Geneva. The trailblazing Excalibur Knights of the Round Table III embodies eloquent proof that true legends never die, especially when spectacularly reinterpreted by Roger Dubuis. In keeping with the cornerstone mantra of the brand that dares to be rare, this standout creation is issued as a highly exclusive 28-piece limited edition.
