We are proud and pleased to reveal in exclusivity the new 2013 collection from the prestigious Masters of Diamonds since 1789, Backes & Strauss London
Backes & Strauss pursue greater excellence, pushing the boundaries of technique and design to create their second generation masterpieces - ultra thin new era timepieces.
The Renaissance Collection is aptly named, a rebirth collection, retaining Backes & Strauss’ distinctive look, reborn sleek and slim, a truly modern haute-horlogerie watch. Watch making in its highest form with Backes & Strauss creativity and quality at its best.
Extremely slender, a mere 6.1 mm in depth, crafted in 18kt white or rose gold, the elegant cases are either lavishly set with the finest ideal cut round brilliant diamonds in two or three rows, or Classic, without diamonds on the case. Each distinctive timepiece has a single diamond hand set in the crown, the Backes & Strauss signature “Jewel in the Crown”.
One can only marvel at the experienced eye and precision of the diamond setter working with such ultra thin cases. The mechanical movement, only 2.5 mm in depth, is decorated and fully revealed through a transparent case-back of sapphire crystal.
These extraordinary slim timepieces reflect British elegance and European style and are available for both feminine and masculine wrists as both Piccadillys and Regents.
Roman numerals are hand set on a choice of dial colours to match alligator skin straps with an 18kt white or rose gold buckle. The distinctive oval shape of the Regent in such an ultra sleek and slender form is very rare.
