Renowned for bearing a gem-set Union Jack in its dial, Backes & Strauss’ John Bull collection is available in 18kt white gold or steel and comes in all three of Backes & Strauss’ classic designs; the square-shaped Berkeley, the round Piccadilly and the oval-shaped Regent.
Inspired by the famous symbol of unshakeable Britishness, the dial of the John Bull watch features white Ideal Cut diamonds, rubies and sapphires to create the instantly recognisable pattern of the Union Jack flag, behind which lies a self-winding, automatic movement. Finally, as Backes & Strauss tradition dictates, each John Bull timepiece is masterfully completed with the brand’s trademark Ideal Cut diamond nestled into the crown, also known as the Jewel in the Crown.
