By Royal Approval: A Watch Fit for a Queen

Backes & Strauss diamond jubilee watch


One of the few bespoke watches that will probably make it to a collector's 'covet' list this year is the Diamond Jubilee Regent Collection watch. The royal purple watch, which was showcased at Rose: The Watch Bar in Mumbai last week, comes with a hand-lacquered English rose dial and a case studded two rows of diamonds, is the first watch ever to bear Queen Elizabeth II's Royal Cypher. By Royal permission, of course. The Lord Chamberlain's Office at Buckingham Palace gave the go-ahead for London-based watchmaker Backes & Strauss to create this tribute to the queen.

Part of the Diamond Jubilee Regent Collection, the watch comes with enough frills fit for a queen; besides the diamond studded-EIIR cypher, the 12 o'clock  position is replaced with the Roman  letters LX, which signify 60. The strap is purple alligator leather.

Each of the 60 watches come with the 'Queen's Diamond Jubilee' engraving and a year from HM's reign as the serial number (60 watches with serial numbers from 1952 - 2012).

Available at Rose: The Watch Bar, Breach Candy, Mumbai.
