Roger Dubuis Excalibur Table Ronde Watch
In 2013 Roger Dubuis will present the Excalibur Table Ronde, a limited series of 88 watches featuring 12 knights and their swords carved in gold and forming the hour markers around the enamelled dial. Indeed this is an evocation of the King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table legend, and a brilliant evocation at that — see the dial close-up shot below. The “table” is a hand-painted enamel reproduction of an actual table that hangs in Winchester, England. The design displayed on the Winchester Round Table dates from 1552 and was made to impress the visiting Emperor Charles V.
