Legends in Time
The intricate Excalibur Knights of the Round Table III timepiece brought out by Roger Dubuis reflects the legend of King Arthur’s sword Excalibur and was inspired by the mythical island of Avalon, where the sword may have been forged. On the dial the 12 knights, engraved by hand in rose gold, point their swords toward the centre of the dial (the round table inspired by Avalon), which is rendered in a hand- carved block of solid blue enamel. This beautiful composition, a work of art in and of itself, is housed inside a 45mm diameter case in 18- carat rose gold. Each dial requires 45 hours to be completed and the house’s workshops can only produce two pieces of this intricate watch each month. This exceptional timepiece, which is stamped with the Geneva Hallmark, is brought out in a limited edition of only 28 pieces. - P.V.
