The House of Backes & Strauss

History & Heritage


Since 1789, the diamond expertise of Backes & Strauss has spanned the
globe. Archives dating from the 19th century show orders for Backes &
Strauss jewels which adorned European royalty.
The collaboration between Backes & Strauss and the work shops of expert
Swiss watchmaker Franck Muller, has produced a collection of unerringly
elegant, intricate fine timepieces, embelished with diamonds, custom cut
into unique shapes, polished and then hand set to perfection.
Four Backes & Strauss watch collections reflect the companys London
origins The Berkeley, The Piccadilly, The Regent and Victoria. Crafted
in a choice of 18 carat white or rose gold and set with diamonds, these
are watches inspired by the smooth symmetry and grandeur of Londons
Regency architecture, in particular the work of 18th century landscape
architect William Kent and the architect John Nash for the Prince Regent.
In the Victoria collection an intertwined heart motif alludes to Queen
Victorias everlasting love for her husband Albert.

Meeting of Masters
Backes & Strauss and The Franck Muller Group are
masters of the art and science of their respective crafts.
While Backes & Strauss is occupied with light and
Franck Muller is concerned with time, both share a
devotion to mathematical precision.
The dial and case of a Backes & Strauss watch reflects the
geometric symmetry of the Ideal Cut. Within the beating
heart of the watch, the elaborately crafted movements
convey a jewel-like beauty,
The result of this meeting of masters is a collection of
timepieces so intricate, they are veritable masterpieces
both inside and out.

The Regent Collection


The Regent collection takes as its starting point the architecture of John
Nash, who in 1811 was commissioned by the Prince Regent to design a
huge swathe of London, then known as Marylebone Park. The classical
proportions of Nashs work across London, from Regent Street, to
Regents Park and St Jamess Park, are found in the sweeping curves and
bold symmetry of the Backes & Strauss Regent collection.

The Berkeley Collection


The Berkeley collection takes inspiration from one of Londons great
squares, with its spacious, leafy garden in the centre of bustling Mayfair.
Originally laid out in the 18th century by Palladian master and landscape
architect William Kent, Berkeley Squares picturesque plane trees were
planted in 1789, the year Backes & Strauss began trading. Berkeley Square
has since become a famously romantic spot, featuring in the 1970s love
song A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square.

The Piccadilly Collection


The Piccadilly collection is inspired by John Nashs grand circular junction,
Piccadilly Circus, the epicentre of London ever since it was built in 1819.
Originally named Regent Circus South, Nash created Piccadilly Circus to
complement Oxford Circus, then known as Regent Circus North, which was
located at the other end of the sweeping street Nash had designed, Regent
Street. Piccadilly Circus also linked Nashs dramatic vision, which was the
height of modern fashion with the neighbourhood of Piccadilly, the bastion
of traditional style. This elegant confluence of old and new lies at the heart of
the Backes & Strauss Piccadilly collection.

The Victoria Collection


Drawn from the Backes & Strauss archives, a 19th century brooch with two
linked hearts was the starting point for todays Backes & Strauss sumptuous
Victoria diamond watches. Those linked hearts are now fully intertwined and
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.
