Dubai, India (PressExposure) April 30, 2012 -- Combining the power of an iconic model with the subtle elegance of a totally feminine timepiece, the Excalibur Lady collection from ROGER DUBUIS opens a new chapter in the history of the Geneva-based Manufacture. Incorporating all the traits on which the reputation of the Excalibur collection is based, this feminine collection is distinguished by a finer silhouette that shows off its harmonious curves. This look is echoed in the excellent finishing touches, revealing a ROGER DUBUIS mechanical movement that meets the most demanding requirements of haute horlogerie. Passionately feminine, exclusively mechanical: this is the Excalibur Lady collection.
If the sparkling beauty and slender markers of this collection were to be unveiled on the runway, we would think of them in terms of haute couture. More discreetly entwined around a feminine wrist, Excalibur Lady proudly bears the attributes of haute horlogerie. Through the boldness of its expression as much as by its mechanical movement, the new Excalibur Lady collection from ROGER DUBUIS is part of a decidedly contemporary movement: a spirit that deftly combines assertive femininity and the mechanical excellence of haute horlogerie.
From the Excalibur collection that has defined the finest periods of the Manufacture ROGER DUBUIS from 2005 onwards, the new Lady collection has retained the features that form its emblematic codes: three horns for the bracelet fixing, a highly distinctive grooved bezel and slender Roman numerals. These new aesthetic preferences help to create a more subtle and decidedly feminine silhouette. From its masculine predecessor, it seeks to retain this unique character, this touch of extravagance that incontrovertibly marks it out from its peers in the world of haute horlogerie.
Resolute and bold, the Excalibur Lady Améthyste is only manufactured in a limited edition of 88. While retaining all the features unique to the collection, this special edition in 18 ct rose gold is above all distinguished by its bezel set with 48 baguette-cut amethysts (approximately 1.99 carats).
Exceptional in every possible way, the Excalibur Lady Joaillerie limited edition is entirely set with 585 diamonds - including 48 baguette cut diamonds on the bezel - giving a total of approximately 5.51 carats. An impressive detail and example of the jeweller's skill - both spectacular and original - was to set the Roman numerals on top of the diamond set dial to give them better perspective. This extravagant and audacious watch is available in 18 ct white gold in a limited edition of 88 - the most brilliant of the variants in the new women's collection from ROGER DUBUIS.
