Backes & Strauss is an English company that designs and produces high-end luxury timepieces and jewellery. Founded in 1789 in Hanau, Germany, it is the oldest diamond company in the world.
The company's London office was established in 1814, and the company hallmark was registered at Goldsmith's Hall in London in 1878. In November 2006, Backes & Strauss entered into a strategic partnership with the Swiss watchmaker Franck Muller Group, launching its flagship collections of Regent, Berkeley and Piccadilly watches.
All Backes & Strauss watches are entirely made in the Geneva workshops of Franck Muller Watchland, where all of the watch components are produced in-house. A special stamping has been designed to mirror the diamond theme, which is unique to the brand and recalls its devotion to mathematical precision in diamond cutting.
