Backes & Strauss in a collaboration with Splendore Unique is launching The Regent Arqaam Collection.
The iconic oval-shaped Regent Backes & Strauss timepiece will be available in a limited series, featuring the Arabic-Hindu numerals on the dial. The watch will be available in the 40 x 47 mm size and will feature 5 coloured dials – British Racing Green, Backes Blue, Red, Burgundy, and Black – each limited to 10 pieces. The case back will have the numbers 1/10 engraved in the Arabic-Hindu numerals. The timepiece will have an automatic movement with a platinum rotor and will come with assorted colours of alligator strap.
“We are delighted to partner with Backes & Strauss in this wonderful project – drawing on their rich heritage and history to showcase the Arabic-Hindu numerals” – said Emmanuel Sarumi, Creative Director of Splendore Unique. He added: “We have been pioneers in these special dials since 2013 mainly for private collectors from the Middle East”.
