Roger Dubuis Excalibur Knights of the Round Table II

Only two years ago the first Excalibur Knights of the Rounds Table watch was introduced by Roger Dubuis. In this short periode of them its proven to be a legend already. Today, in 2015, Roger Dubuis introduces a new interpretation of this ageless legend keeping the key values that made it into this status.

Manufacture Roger Dubuis has a well-established reputation for springing surprises in many guises, and its contemporary take on the legend of the Round Table is no exception.

For a first interpretation unveiled in 2013, the designers of the Geneva-based Manufacture presented a 28-piece limited edition distinguished by its boldness and steeped in history.

The noble figures appeared seated around an enamel and decal reproduction of the Tudor green and cream painted English Oak Round Table made for Henry VIII and placed in the Grand Hall of his castle at Winchester.

For 2015, a stunning new 28-piece iteration available exclusively from Roger Dubuis boutiques 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.
