In the heyday of the magnificent dandy Beau Brummell, telling the time involved more than a mere glance at the wrist - it was almost a ceremonial occasion when a gentleman gave a gentle tug on his fob chain, slowly drawing a timepiece from the depths of his waistcoat pocket before cradling it in his palm and perusing the hour at length.
That sense of tactile enjoyment which is an intrinsic part of old-world timekeeping is now revisited by Backes & Strauss in the form of the Regent Beau Brummell Tourbillon Pocket Watch with a white gold case set with two rows of baguette diamonds and with further rows of baguette diamonds set concentrically on the dial. The hand wound tourbillon movement features hours and minutes as well as a date display and moon phase indication.
