I recently recommended Knight of the Round Table to friends. Many of them have commented that they like this type of watch and want to know more about it. Ok, let’s take RDDBEX0495 as an example to review this classic legend.
The Knight of the Round Table II is relatively low-key but artistic watch. It is made of smoky gray that is a cool color, but it can stand out in many watches.
Grey is the life that is tempered by time and experience
This is a kind of quiet and tolerant color. And the older you are, the better you can understand the value of gray.
1. Meaning: gray is a series of colors between black and white. It isn’t purer than black and white, but it is not monotonous like black and white. It is the most vivid color of life.
2.Psychological Performance: the neutral color of the gray gives a feeling of calm. The gray is designed to make other colors or decorations stand out.
3.Background Color: the use of gray is difficult to make too serious mistakes. It seems to match any color. It can be paired with any color. Therefore it is often used as the background color.
In addition to the unique choice of color, the design of the dial is also very distinctive. On the dial design, Roger Dubuis didn’t revive the design concept of the Knight of the Round Table I. Instead, it uses pure natural dark gray ink jade (the ink jade has the meaning of gentleness, wealth protection, avoidance of evil, anti-evil) as a dial, this scarce material adds to the charm of the watch. The brand adopts strict technology, complicated craftsmanship, and creatively engraves exquisite patterns on the dial, which increases the appreciation of the watch.
And the twelve knights on the dial are also different from the gold casting of the first generation. Instead, it is made of bronze with a higher production difficulty. The height of the micro-carved copper knight is only 6.5 mm, but the details on the cast are still very delicate.
At the same time, the stars are dyed with patina on the edge of the platinum plate, which makes the whole dial show retro humanistic feelings and cultural precipitation to the customer. This is one of the reasons why I chose this watch. The brand can treat every detail so carefully, and it is also a powerful support for progress.
This watch completely reproduces the Knight of the Round Table I in the movement and the body shape, but made a breakthrough in the details. Compared to the former, the Knight of the Round Table II is more introverted and calm, and accordingly is the modern watch.
