Royal collection iconic timepieces

Fine jewellery watches by Backes & Strauss

“A number of fine jewellery timepieces were presented in Geneva this year with those from diamond specialist Backes & Strauss undoubtedly among the best. Highlights included the Piccadilly 45 King Tourbillon (left), which blends the beauty of diamonds, emeralds and mother-of-pearl with a technical automatic tourbillon movement, the playfully statement Piccadilly Renaissance Ballerina Rainbow (centre) boasting more than 1,300 gemstone and the Berkeley 43 King Tourbillon (right). Joining the Piccadilly 45 King Tourbillon as one of the house’s third generation tourbillons, its more masculine case is home to 136 baguette cut diamonds, 184 Ideal Cut diamonds and seven baguette cut sapphires.”
