When poetry meets refined techniques – Excalibur Brocéliande, by Roger Dubuis

Among its standout hand-wound skeleton models, at SIHH 2015 Manufacture Roger Dubuis confirmed its unique vision of high-end ladies’ creations through a number of highly distinctive jewellery models, delivering a message of paradoxically timeless yet up-to-the-minute femininity.

Among these is the Excalibur Creative Skeleton Brocéliande, 28 limited edition pieces representing the subtle alliance between refined techniques and sophisticated aesthetics:

The Excalibur Creative Skeleton Brocéliande powerfully yet delicately evokes the way in which the foliage of this evergreen plant subtly coils around its host in a symbiotic and almost fusional relationship.

Decorative jewellery elements are cleverly entwined with the skeleton flying tourbillon movement and the dial, to the point where they become indistinguishable from each other.

The Excalibur Brocéliande is powered by a mechanical hand-wound movement, one which is crafted in a modern fashion and which looks both lighter and bolder.
