Roger Dubuis Excalibur Knights of the Round Table II

A stunning reiteration of the famed Excalibur Knights of the Round Table created in 2013, the 2015 reprise presents this masterful creation in a fresh new light. Designed exclusively for Roger Dubuis boutiques, the Excalibur Knights of the Round Table II is presented in a stunning new 28-piece iteration that features the 12 exquisitely engraved and sculpted bronze knights positioned around a precious black jade dial.
Masterfully engraved and laden with symbolism, this fresh expression of the Round Table legend adds even further weight to the evocative power of the piece. Here, in a stunning display of miniaturisation and precision, the 12 figures representing the legendary Knights of the Round Table with their swords form a perfect circle replacing traditional hour-markers. The satin white gold circular flange surrounding the centre of the dial is engraved and patinated. Great skill and patience were needed to obtain the cobblestone paving effect.
Nestled inside the 45mm white gold case beats the same valiant heart as the first edition of this masterwork, mechanical self-winding Calibre RD821 with its comfortable 48-hour power reserve. Like all Roger Dubuis timepieces, all 168 components of this calibre are hand-finished and stamped with the prestigious Poinçon de Genève, a guarantee of exclusivity, origin, expertise, performance and durability.
