Backes & Strauss Berkeley Renaissance Duke Tourbillon

Backes & Strauss presents its very first double peripheral automatic tourbillon timepiece. 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 has now taken up its position in a majestic manner.

The Duke houses a winding system of which the rotor, which can be seen in the open back case, turns around the movement. The bridge of the tourbillon is set with 208 white Ideal Cut diamonds.

Duke is currently available in two 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.

The second version, the Berkeley Renaissance Duke Tourbillon D2R is set with a total of 475 white Ideal Cut diamonds (6.48 cts). Its bezel, dial, bridge, and strap buckle are set with eye-catching diamonds.
