Time to pleaseSIHH 2013 Preview: The Excalibur 36 with a halo of 672 diamonds
One model in the Excalibur collection adds a precious touch to its daring designs. The Excalibur 36 in pink gold and set with a halo of 672 diamonds (approx 4.78 carats) sparkles with the light of a thousand fires. Its aesthetic codes- dynamic shapes, sharp angles, powerful design – give it an allure that links refinement and beautiful watchmaking, without affecting the Roger Dubuis signature in any way.
In the Geneva Manufacture women are seen as heroines: it has created an exceptional timepiece that is a true hymn to femininity. The Excalibur 36 in pink gold offers a remarkable mechanism in a powerful design. The brand’s craftsmen have been very ambitious in creating an ultra-precise piece with a charm that is only matched by its performance.
The watch represents the avant-garde spirit that characterises Roger Dubuis and is the essence of its excellence in jewellery. It embraces preciousness and beauty with its bracelet set with 624 diamonds totalling approximately 3.79 carats. Precious stones surround the centre of the polished bracelet with its two rows of symmetrical brilliant-cut diamonds. The magic continues on the bezel set with 48 diamonds totalling around 0.99 carats. Echoing this flamboyance, pink gold extends all the way to the Roman numerals applied delicately on the dial and around the small seconds counter at 6 o’clock.
And because excellence is the benchmark of this creation, it is fitted with the latest generation of a Roger Dubuis mechanical movement with automatic winding: the calibre RD821. Composed of 172 parts, it indicates the hours, minutes and seconds and can draw on a power reserve of 48 hours. Lastly, the Excalibur 36 has received the highest recognition in the world of Fine Jewellery: it is certified by the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), and is stamped with the prestigious Hallmark of Geneva.
An object of indisputable technical excellence that is also an exceptional piece of jewellery, the Excalibur 36 is facing a stellar future. Its boldness glows like the fire of the diamonds that form a disc of light on its bezel and bracelet. The sparkle of time touches us here as if to remind us that each moment is unique.
