The new Caliburnus II collection continues the iconic patented design of the original inspired by the legend of King Arthur and the Sword in the Stone. Each watch is crafted from unique materials collected from all over the world and handcrafted with scrupulous attention to detail. As such, no two watches are the same, making it a unique and precise jewelry timepiece for watch lovers and collectors.
Recognizable dragon scale case inspired by Arthurian armor
VALIMOR fuses traditional high precision craftsmanship and contemporary design into a hard-stainless steel case through delicate engraving. The manufacturing process simplifies our trademark dragon design into a unique watch case with a dragon scale engraved steel bezel. The final look births a unique yet classic watch series. We use innovative PVD coating to add the antiquing effect to the solid and hard-wearing 316L stainless steel. In 2018, the VALIMOR design was patented in 27 members states of the European Union (EUIPO Design Patent #004742294-0001).
New 60-hour Automatic Movement
The latest Miyota Cal.8315 movement features a longer power reserve than almost any other movement in this price range. By upgrading Caliburnus II with this automatic movement, it achieves an unbeatable 60 hours of power reserve. The patented anti-oxidation blue screws, makes it the most durable, practical and convenient timepiece we have designed to date.
New Unique Dial Options
Caliburnus II offers 5 new dial options and color ways crafted from exclusive materials. The characteristics of these materials require extraordinary skill of the artisan cutting it. They needs to be carefully ground and polished in order to be made into a thickness of only 0.20mm to 0.40mm. Then each dial is carefully inlaid and polished to achieve the 3D multi-faceted indexes. Next, it is painted with Swiss Super-LumiNova® coating to achieve the eye-catching luster. Finally, a reflector ring is added to the periphery of the dial to reduce the visual size of the opening. This gives the timepiece a better proportioned dial and subtle upgrade in terms of aesthetics.
In addition to using DIAMOND-CUT technology to cut the outline of the hands with ultimate precision, the hands feature a complex semi-polishing techniques that is usually reserved for high-end watches. Using this technique the hands are polished on one side and brushed on the other for a unique, yet subtle and understated, aesthetic. This design does not just serve to provide a high-end look, it keeps the contrast of the hands against the dial throughout different reflection and lighting conditions, to improve legibility and make it easier to read time.
NBR Rubber Strap
Caliburnus II comes with a custom strap designed to integrate with the overall aesthetic. The strap continuous the inspiration of The Sword in the Stone. It is designed in collaboration with the graphic designer, Arkadiy Welesov, who specializes in Celtic & Viking tattoo patterns and illustration.
The Japanese NBR rubber has superior strength and greater resistant to skin oils and acids than natural rubber. The Materials have met the RoHS requirements and rarely causes severe allergic reaction. The strap is adorned with our signature stainless-steel buckle inspired by the hilt of a sword; it also includes one pair of Integrated quick release spring bars for easy (but secure) installation.
316L Stainless Steel Bracelet:
The steel bracelet was developed and designed collaboration with 200 Kickstarter backers in July 2018. It has been manufactured to the exact specifications requested by our active community, down to its design, craftsmanship, comfort, weight, functionality, and ease of use. The bracelet is the result of countless prototypes and improvements.
Taking into account the activities of the night, we use Swiss SuperLumiNova® to secure perfect legibility in the dark. The pigments are non-radioactive and environmental friendly. SuperLumiNova® is the preferred luminous pigment of Swiss watch industry and is renowned for keeping its luminescence well as time passes, to serve you for many years to come.
Sapphire crystal contains a crystalline structure which makes it highly scratch-resistant. After the moissanite and the diamond, it is the third-hardest transparent material on the planet. It is made out of a pure synthetic sapphire (monocrystalline) which is produced from melted aluminium oxide (Al2O3). The production creates huge crystals which are cultivated by the means of electrolysis. Subsequently, the crystals are divided into slices and the shape of the watch glass is later time-consumingly cut out of these slices.
Caliburnus II - Lake Opal / Flame Opal
Both the Lake Opal and the Flame Opal needs at least one year to grow in a laboratory environment of high-tech controlled cultivation of natural opals. It contains at least 80% silica while natural opal made with 100% silica. The brilliance of this impregnated synthetic opal develops a vertical fire growing layer by layer over time. The patterns and fire are unified across the dial, yet unique to each piece, making each dial the only one of its kind in the world.
Caliburnus II - Black Knight / Blue Northern Light
Both the Black Knight and the Blue Northern Light dials are crafted from real natural Mother-of-Pearl. The raw material is carefully cut from natural shells, giving each dial a unique color, luster and texture. The growth environment, different climates, and the material erosion conditions gives each dial an unreplicable look developed by Mother Nature. Cutting the Mother-of-Pearl out of the shell is a complex process as, given its delicate nature, it is liable to chipping and cracking. In addition, it is particularly difficult to handle larger shells due to the large-opening, and therefore it is immensely precious.
The dial of The Blue Northern Light is just 0.20mm thick to achieve the unique translucent effect. The bottom of each dial is carefully painted with Swiss Super-LumiNova® blue luminous, producing a unique blue glow reminiscent of the northern lights by night, without losing the natural texture during the day.
The Sword of the Light is in strong contrast with other special materials of the collection; It is pure, clear, simple, and equipped with a full Swiss Super-LumiNova® C1 coated dial design. At night, the dial will transform into a sword in the stone, emitting a mysterious green luminous glow.
