Prima Ballerina and Artistic Director of English National Ballet, Tamara Rojo has become the new ambassador for Backes & Strauss’ stunning Victoria diamond watch collection. It is easy to see why this is a perfect collaborative pairing – with the grace, finesse and precision that is central to the world of ballet, something that is echoed in the creation of all Backes & Strauss timepieces.
The Victoria collection, modelled by Tamara, is drawn from a 19th Century brooch with two linked hearts from the Backes & Strauss archives. The fully intertwined and repeated heart motif is an intricate masterpiece inspired by Queen Victoria’s love for her husband Albert.
An evening watch for a modern woman, the Victoria Princess watch is styled in Rose (pink diamonds), Jonquil (canary yellow diamonds), Snowdrop (white ideal cut diamonds) and Sunflower (natural champagne diamonds) each proving such a hit that a lengthy list of international pre-orders awaits and with production down to only five pieces a month, its exclusivity just adds to its allure.
