Backes & Strauss gives life to a modern-day fairytale by this latest introduction to the Royale collection.

Refined, precious and elegant, this exquisite timepiece has it all. Its 37 mm white gold case and bracelet are set with 165 diamonds totalling 22.61 carats. This enchanting model also comes in a rose gold version with an entirely gem-set or mother-of-pearl gracefully swept over by hour, minute and seconds hands.
