Excalibur Knights of the Round Table III

Daring, determined and dauntless

Dubai, UAE, May 05, 2018:  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.

Commanding, compelling and cunningly creative, Excalibur is the ultimate symbol of the inherent daring embedded in the Roger Dubuis DNA. An inventive boldness expressed as much through the use of unprecedented materials in watchmaking as through the consistent launch of groundbreaking new calibres. The cut and thrust of innovation and vanguard technologies hold no secrets for the full-fledged Manufacture with its dedicated in-house R&D department. After the glorious campaigns of its Excalibur Knights of the Round Table I and II, Roger Dubuis once again proves its ability to upend conventions and conquer traditions by offering a cutting-edge, contemporary take on watchmaking icons.

Ancient myth meets 21st century art form. Fearlessly coupling a powerful legend with a technical feat and a contemporary artistic approach, the Excalibur Knights of the Round Table III epitomises the no-holds-barred Roger Dubuis approach. A taste for off-the-chart adventures that impels it to take on even the wildest challenges. Originally used for making 3D models and scenes for videogames, low poly art is a technique in which polygonal facets are used to create sculptures or paintings. It is increasingly popular due to its render speed achieved thanks to low polygonal resolution. Used in this instance to create 12 new expressive three-dimensional pink gold knights depicting the hours, it showcases the peerless creativity and dynamism of the Roger Dubuis artisan-warriors and their commitment to ‘disruptive materials and progressive complications’.

Vigorous, valiant and virile, each highly detailed, low poly-sculpted, engraved and hand-finished knight has been entirely redesigned; each points his sword at the Avalon-inspired table sculpted from solid blue enamel blocks, a process requiring considerable dexterity and many patient hours of craftsmanship. Framed by an imposing Excalibur 45mm case with a solid caseback, fluted 18K pink gold bezel and matching crown, each dial takes a full 45 hours to create. This mechanical marvel is teamed with a matching blue alligator strap.

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.
