Roger Dubuis’ latest iteration of its iconic Knights of the Round Table collection sees a true feat of hyper-expressive craftsmanship that took 18 months to master. Realised through micro-sculpting, each of the 12 unique knights cast in pink gold is dressed in full battle regalia with their weapons drawn, ready to fight any danger lurking beneath them. The floor, composed of intricately hand-assembled black Murano glass, reveals a magma of red varnish peeking from within. Powered by the automatic Monobalancier RD821 calibre, the watch’s new contemporary finish and design include a clean-cut case made of pink gold. Shaped like the guard of a sword, the crown and protector appear as if a blade is stuck in the timepiece, just like the Excalibur sword in the stone. A new transparent sapphire crystal ring under the bezel provides the wearer a full view of the knight’s fine detailing. Only 28 privileged individuals will get to own this 45mm boutique-exclusive model.
