Swiss Manufacture Roger Dubuis unveils its first-ever Limited Edition timepiece dedicated to Kuwait. The stunning Excalibur timepiece with a uniquely striking Malachite dial has been commissioned to celebrate the long and fruitful partnership between the Swiss luxury Maison and their Kuwaiti partner, M. Y. Behbehani Group.
The commemorative timepiece, of which just 30 are being produced, is a veritable Collector's Item. It represents the entire brand's penchant for inventiveness and innovation that has gone into putting together this iconic and memorable timepiece.
The iconic Excalibur for the first time in the collection's history features a malachite stone dial. The variegated green surface of the malachite dial provides a resplendent sheen and a unique background that distinguishes the Excalibur from the flock. The dial has been painstakingly fashioned from carefully selected samples of malachite and worked on to achieve a flawless finish by the craftsmen at Roger Dubuis.
The unique green of the malachite also sets off the silvery time markers and watch hands quite nicely, with the silver of the hands and markers being silhouetted by the luminescent intensity of the malachite backdrop. The Limited Edition timepiece, like every other creation of Roger Dubuis, bears the Poincon de Geneve, hallmark of Swiss watchmaking excellence.
"We at Roger Dubuis are extremely appreciative for the instrumental role played by our partner M.Y. Behbehani Group in advancing the brand's presence across Kuwait over the years. The Limited Edition Excalibur is a token of our esteem for their outstanding efforts," said Jean-Sebastien Berland, Regional Brand Director, Middle East and India for Roger Dubuis.
"Roger Dubuis timepieces have always maintained their reputation for being outstandingly complicated, technically complex and innovatively creative in design, setting them apart as a brand with a difference. Fine watch lovers in Kuwait recognise these attributes of the Maison, which is why we have been a success in the region," said Mr. Ali Morad Behbehani, President of M.Y., Behbehani Group.
The bespoke timepieces are currently available at M.Y. Behbehani points of sale in Kuwait.
