roger dubuis excalibur 36


Masculine features have been seriously subdued with a row of precious stones, a self-winding movement designed in the brand’s workshops and a range of four limited edition colours: Roger Dubuis has more of its Excalibur timepiece joining the round table!

Three new colours have appeared alongside the blue Excalibur 36 unveiled in Geneva at January’s SIHH (International Watch Fair). The colours may be relatively classic (black, white, pink and blue), but the rock ‘n’ roll look of Roger Dubuis’ signature watch has been ramped up a notch by its legendary, exciting, statement design.

The new version is based on the Excalibur model’s design features but it’s now smaller, softer and more feminine. The “brutal” feel is outshone by 48 gems dazzling on the black DLC-coated notched titanium bezel. White diamonds and blue or pink sapphires magically illuminate the 36mm case forged in titanium and DLC on this limited edition watch (28 per colour). The jewels match the dial colour be it pure white lacquer, raspberry pink sunburst or cobalt blue apart from the black watch whose depth and intensity contrasts nicely with white diamonds.

The back of the Excalibur 36 case (water-resistant to depths of 50m) is in sapphire crystal so you can see the RD830 calibre. The self-winding mechanical movement fuels the time and date functions and provides a 48-hour power reserve.

Roger Dubuis’ new piece features rhodium-plated Roman numerals on the dial that are stretched to the max to give the watch its unique signature look. A pair of white gold dauphine-shape hands track the hours and minutes whilst the seconds appear in a counter at 6 above the black-on-white date display.
