KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE X WATCHES & WONDERS
THE 8TH EDITION IS HERE
Outstanding innovation meets legendary accomplishments in one timepiece. The 8th edition had to be worthy of representing the lucky number of the late, great Mr. Roger Dubuis after all.
TWELVE KNIGHTS FIGHT GRAVITY WITH THE MIGHTY MONOTOURBILLON
For the first time, the valiant knights of King Arthur’s legend are ready to take on the invisible force of gravity with a secret advantage: our horological pride and joy – an iconic feat of engineering – the Monotourbillon itself.
POWERFULLY ADVANCED PROWESS
We always balance technics at the service of aesthetics, no matter how difficult. Displaying true technical talent, the Monotourbillon emerges from the timepiece’s centre in a powerful display of advanced mechanics.
HYPER EXPRESSIVE CRAFT
Individually micro-sculpted heroes, perfectly centred rotating crystal sapphire discs as markers, and a modern design featuring Murano glass blocks that form eight layers of décor surrounding the dial – that’s hyper-expressive craft.
Knights of the Round Table MT Pink Gold 45mm
The very recognizable face of the watch is made of twelve micro-sculptures - the Knights - placed around a dial - the Table. The Knights are handcrafted and represent the 12 characters involved in the quest.
The table is made of crystal sapphire with Murano glass blocks, and symbolizes the unity and equality of the Knights. Underneath the face of the watch is a manual winding calibre, manufactured in the Roger Dubuis workshops and certified by the Poinçon de Genève, one of the most demanding certifications in Haute Horlogerie.
A QUEST FOR EXCELLENCE
The Knights Of The Round Table collection is a promise – of power and innovation, boldness and passion. Each year on our quest for excellence we reinterpret the legend anew through iconic design, artistic mastery and extraordinary craftsmanship.
THE FIRST EDITION
The first timepiece took inspiration from the quests of King Arthur’s knights. The goal? To create the pinnacle of Hyper Horology.
The Knights of the Round Table valued strength, respect and discipline. They believed a man should be able to choose his own destiny – and so do we. Pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, this timepiece represents our passion and legacy.
Twelve 3D heroes just 6.5mm tall, armed with their faithful swords and hand cast in gold, form a perfect circle around a Grand Feu enamel dial to symbolise the equalising round table. Such rare artistic mastery is the outstanding result of our highly skilled and passionate craftsman.
THE HOROLOGICAL MASTERY
We hold ourselves accountable to an oath of excellence. That’s why this timepiece – powered by an automatic monobalancier RD821 calibre – is hand-finished with meticulous care according to the demanding criteria of the Poinçon de Genève.
AN EVOLVING ICON
The hallmarks of an icon include the capacity for reinvention. Continuing to bring ancient myth together with 21st century art forms, our third edition timepiece utilised low-poly art, a technique originally used for making 3D models in videogames.
