The Excalibur Lady Collection from Roger Dubois

By P. Joseph

Luxury Swiss watchmaker Roger Dubois has launched a new range of women's watches, including a limited edition model featuring 560 diamonds.

The Excalibur Jewellery Model – part of the brand’s new Excalibur Lady Collection of 36mm watches – is studded with diamonds of approximately 5.7 carats, and is proposed in white gold. The watch is limited to just 88 pieces worldwide.

All of the watches in the collection come in steel, white gold or rose gold, and boast slimly tapered roman numeral design dials that resemble the tip of Excalibur, the legendary sword of King Arthur.

Available with or without diamonds, the numerals are formed by metallization on a sapphire crystal which then encloses the dial. The dial is fully paved with diamonds, including under the Roman numerals.

The brand have billed the watches, as “timeless” and as offering “a perfect heirloom to be passed down from mother to daughter”.

Other features of the timepieces include a rose gold case, which is water-resistant to 3 BAR (30 metres), and is framed by a bezel paved with 48 diamonds (approx. 0.99 carats). Straps are available in both grey and purple satin.

Prices for the watches range between £3,600 and £55,000,
