Backes & Strauss the Victoria Princess watch


The intertwined hearts of the Victoria Princess watch

Drawn from the Backes & Strauss archives, a 19th century brooch with two linked hearts was the starting point for today’s Backes & Strauss sumptuous Victoria Princess diamond watch.

Those linked hearts are now fully intertwined. They have become their own motif, repeated again and again in a circle of everlasting love, like that of Queen Victoria for her husband Albert. She was so smitten with him, she proposed the second time they met. Evidently, in the spirit of women going after exactly what they want in life just like Queen Victoria once did, the Backes & Strauss Victoria Princess watch has proved such a hit with a lengthy list of international pre-orders, that Backes & Strauss are now limiting production to five pieces a month.

This is a watch that is feminine in the extreme. The tactile interior gold finish of the bracelet has been designed for ultimate comfort.

"The Backes & Strauss Victoria Princess watch looks just as glamorous on a bride or débutante as on a kimono-wearing Asian beauty. It’s a modern woman’s evening watch,” says Vartkess Knadjan, Backes & Strauss CEO. With a pink mother of pearl dial, the watch is set with 604 Ideal Cut Hearts & Arrows diamonds totalling 5.5 carats. Thanks to hundreds of hours of planning, precision cutting and hand polishing by our diamond experts, when viewing a Backes & Strauss diamond up close with the help of a special viewer, a perfect series of eight arrowheads becomes visible on the top of the stone. When examining the stone from beneath, eight hearts circle the diamond. Every Backes & Strauss watch comes with its own Hearts and Arrows viewer, a testament to our dedication to perfection.
