Following in the footsteps of Beau Brummell Tourbillon Pocket Watch and Emperor collection, the Piccadilly 45 King Tourbillon marks the third generation of Backes & Strauss tourbillon timepieces.
Just like the Emperor collection, the bespoke tourbillon made for this series, which is visible from the cut away dial, is decorated by Backes & Strauss’ signature arrows motif, inspired by the Hearts & Arrows pattern visible when viewing an Ideal Cut diamond with a special loupe. The white mother-of-pearl dial is set with 7 baguette cut emeralds, which act as hour markers and 138 white Ideal Cut diamonds.
From the open back case we can see the rotor of the automatic tourbillon movement engraved with the London skyline. The rest of the movement is set with 204 white Ideal Cut diamonds.
The white gold case is set with 48 baguette diamonds specially polished to look spectacular in the curved and contoured case of the Piccadilly.
