For over two centuries, Backes & Strauss, the world’s oldest diamond company has constantly looked forward, pioneering new diamond-cutting techniques and enthralling connoisseurs with its compelling designs.
Today, Backes & Strauss is part of the Franck Muller Group. Backes & Strauss and Franck Muller are masters of the art and science of their respective crafts. While Backes & Strauss is occupied with light, Franck Muller is concerned with time; both share a devotion to mathematical precision. The result of this meeting of masters is the creation of Ultimate Bejewelled Timepieces; where highest quality diamonds are exhibited in watch form.
The Backes & Strauss philosophy finds its roots in the tradition of luxury of the by-gone era. Whether it be through the Regent, Berkeley and Piccadilly collections whose inspiration is drawn from the decadence and sophistication of Regency London or through the Royal Collections, whose opulence emulates the exclusivity of unrivalled craftsmanship, Backes & Strauss pays tribute to luxury like no other.
Committed to creating timepieces of exception, Backes & Strauss creates one-off Bespoke Masterpieces, allowing the discerning client to be the owner of a most sublime and truly personal object of Time. From concept to creation, the client has the opportunity to closely follow the journey that his or her Bespoke Masterpiece takes.
With the House of Backes & Strauss in Mayfair, Backes & Strauss invites clients to explore its scintillating universe; exhibiting not only its exceptional timepieces but its 19th and 20th century archives.
