Leg­ends in Time

Where Paris - - Shopping For Him -

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.
