Backes & Strauss Berkeley Renaissance Duke Tourbillon, 2 Row Diamond
After the Duke of Cambridge and Sussex, now comes Backes & Strauss’ Berkeley Renaissance Duke Tourbillon collection, a series of timepieces worthy of their 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 collection 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’ Berkeley Renaissance Duke Tourbillon timepieces house the brand’s very first double peripheral tourbillon mechanism; its winding system of which the rotor, visible via 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.
Our Duke is currently available in three beautiful variances. For those who prefer an understated look, other 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 Duke Tourbillon D2R and Duke Tourbillon Baguette will surely not disappoint.
