The Royal Berkeley Emperor Tourbillon consists of invisibly set baguette diamonds on the case and a full diamond bracelet with bespoke diamonds cut and polished in the same shape as the case of the watch. The movement is entirely bespoke: the hand-winding skeleton Tourbillon movement is exclusively developed by master watchmakers and decorated with Backes & Strauss signature motifs. On the tourbillon and other wheels you can observe features such as the “arrows” derived from the “heart and arrows” patterns of an ideal-cut diamond. The bridge that houses the movement is shaped in the form of the case and is set with baguette diamonds both from the top and the back. #BackesAndStrauss #BerkeleyCollection #MeetingofMasters #Since1789 #MastersofDiamonds

Since 1873, the ostrich was used as a trademark on all Backes & Strauss creations. Fun fact: the German word “Strauss” means ostrich. #BackesAndStrauss #MeetingofMasters #Since1789 #MastersofDiamonds

Blurring the lines between horology and jewellery, the timepieces from Backes & Strauss' Victoria collection nod to the original principles of a cocktail watch, with discreet mother-of-pearl dials and innovative technology at their heart.
