DESCRIPTION

In reaction to the surge in demand for ivory, especially from the Asian markets, the "Tears of The African Elephant" charity, founded by two Japanese women has at its heart, the objective of promoting amongst the Japanese public the dangers facing the livelihood of the African Elephants. With the official support and endorsement of His Royal Highness, The Duke of Cambridge, Backes & Strauss has crafted two very special timepieces.

With its rich red and gold-orange hues, this timepiece boasts a warm colour palette in a visual allusion to Africa. The sky is made of gold leaf deposited on a gold dial. The intricate and detailed sketch of the trees is hand painted by our master craftsman. The bottom section of this storytelling dial is enamelled, as is the tusk of the elephant, whilst the rest is set with Backes & Strauss signature Ideal Cut diamonds. In a plea to human nature, the eye of the elephant is a round brilliant cut emerald from which appears a teardrop made of gold.

This special timepiece is set within the Backes & Strauss iconic oval-shaped dial, the Regent and features two rows of diamonds.
