$2.27m emerald watch goes on sale in Dubai

Backes & Strauss, the world's oldest diamond company, has unveiled the latest addition to its Piccadilly Princess Royal collection, a $2.27 million emerald green watch.

As part of a collaboration with Gemfields, the Piccadilly Princess Royal Emerald Green timepiece is the third in a series of five unique watches, following the release of the Piccadilly Princess Royal Colours in 2014 and Piccadilly Princess Royal Blue in 2015. The series has been unveiled to commemorate the 225th anniversary of Backes & Strauss.

The creation was inspired by London’s Regency Era and the vibrant green emeralds reflect the British capital’s devotion to its natural landmarks and lush green parks during this time period.

The watch, which costs AED8,342,736 ($2,271,275) and is available from the Damas store at The Dubai Mall, consist of 245 Zambian emeralds with 10 different cuts for a total of 31.91 carats.
