Roger Dubuis King Arthur Round Table Watch

Roger Dubius Arthur Roundtable

  This limited production of 88 watches with green and white round enamel dials supported by 12 gold sword knights, forming the dial’s 12 time scales. Obviously, this design is derived from the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table.

The watch uses 12 round gold enamel dials with green and white enamel dials to form the 12 time scales of the dial.

   The green and white hand-painted enamel dial replicates the shape of a round table suspended from the Winchester Castle in England. The round table pattern was specially drawn by King Henry VIII of England in 1552 to impress the visiting Holy Roman Emperor Charles V.

   In the original pattern, the name of the twelve knights was written in a circle. Henry VIII himself was sitting on the throne of King Arthur. The center of the round table below the throne was a rosette representing the Tudor royal family.

The round table pattern was specially drawn by King Henry VIII of the United Kingdom in 1552 to impress the visiting Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. ***
