The manufacture Roger Dubuis is known to be anti-conformist – a surprising fact given the brand is owned by the large and usually very conservative Richmond Group. The replica watches made by Dubuis are usually bold, complicated and unique. In 2013, they came with a superb example of their independent spirit, the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Automatic Limited Edition replica watch– Knights of the Round Table. This year there is new edition reminiscent of the same spirit, and guess what, it’s called the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Knights of the Round Table II replica automatic watch.
The 12 figures representing the legendary Knights of the Round Table Roger Dubuis replica watch with their swords form a circle replacing traditional hour-markers. Each knight is only 6.5 mm tall and unique in its own right, as each consists of a three-dimensional casting in bronze with finely sculpted, hand-finished details, including three-dimensional micro-engraving.
The dial of this replica automatic watch is made of a central part (the round table) in engraved black jade surrounded by a satin white gold circular flange also engraved and patinated. The skills used to create those dials are impressive and it takes one month to make just two dials. The rest of the watch is typically Roger Dubuis. The Roger Dubuis Excalibur Knights of the Round Table II replica watch comes with a 45mm case made of 18k white gold, featuring the typically RD notched bezel and triple lugs.
However, the movement is not visible as hidden behind an engraved caseback.
