The famous series continues to blow our minds with some of the most complex and artful dials on the market. Now with some extra red vibe.
Like in the previous Excaliburs, the hour indices here are made in a form of twelve knights pointing their swords towards the centre of the table. The tiny figures are only 6.5 mm high and every single one of them is sculpted, engraved, and finished by hand. And if it wasn’t cool already, each is slightly different in terms of the outfit details and even facial expressions. The rest of the dial is a clever three-dimensional mix of a red transparent blocks and pink gold. As you’d expect, such a task puts some serious pressure to a métiers d'art department, and takes a lot of time. As a result, the Excalibur Knights of the Round Table IV is a boutique exclusive model limited to 28 pieces worldwide.
And while the exterior is obviously the king here, the insides are also quite worth mentioning. The sword-shaped pink gold hour and minute hands – quite fitting the overall theme, we might add – are brought to life by the in-house RD821 automatic movement decorated to the highest standards of the Poinçon de Genève hallmark. The Roger Dubuis Excalibur Knights of the Round Table IV comes in a 45 mm pink gold case complimented by a black alligator strap attached via three lugs on each side.
