As part of a collaboration with Gemfields, the Backes & Strauss Piccadilly Princess Royal African emerald watch was the third in a series of five unique timepieces created by the world’s oldest diamond company. The series was unveiled to commemorate the 225th anniversary of Backes & Strauss and was inspired by London’s Regency era. The vibrant green emeralds reflect the British capital's devotion to its natural landmarks and lush green parks during this time period. The watch is part of The Piccadilly Princess Royal collection and features 245 Zambian emeralds with 10 different cuts, totalling 31.91cts. The exquisite quality of these vivid emeralds is attributed to the delicate and sustainable methods used in Gemfields' Kagem Mine in Zambia. And the combination of the responsibly sourced gems and the carefully engineered design of Backes & Strauss has created a timepiece that can be found nowhere else in the world.
*This watch is valued at $2,271,275
