Watchonista - Backes & Strauss’ Tourbillon Watches
Diamond watch for him worth a royal title
“After the Duke of Cambridge and Essex, now comes Backes & Strauss’ Berkeley Renaissance Duke Tourbillon, a timepiece worthy of its royal title.
Marking the 4th generation of Backes & Strauss’ tourbillon timepieces as well as adding to the Royal Collection, Backes & Strauss’ brand new Berkeley Renaissance Duke Tourbillon has now taken up its position in a majestic manner, and rightly so.
In a constant endeavour to achieve new horological heights all the while staying true to its jewellery know- how, Backes & Strauss is proud to present its very first double peripheral automatic tourbillon timepiece. The Duke houses a winding system of which the rotor, which can be seen in the open back case, turns around the movement. The bridge of the tourbillon – much to all Backes & Strauss aficionados’ delight – is exaltingly set with 208 white Ideal Cut diamonds.
18kt rose gold tourbillon
Our Duke is currently available in two beautiful variances. For those who prefer an understated look, rather than its discreet diamond-set bridge in the back, the classic Berkeley Renaissance Duke Tourbillon, simply houses Backes & Strauss’ signature diamond in the crown also known as the Jewel in the Crown. However, if it is diamonds you seek, the Berkeley Renaissance Duke Tourbillon D2R is set with a total of 475 white Ideal Cut diamonds (6.48cts); its bezel, dial, bridge, nor its buckle are shy of the brand’s eye-catching diamonds.”
