Luxury Watches: Many esteemed wristwatch manufacturers boldly proclaim
that their timepiece is befitting of royalty. Carl F. Bucherer
elevated this age-old marketing euphuism and actually delivers the
goods with a one-of-a-kind masterpiece made exclusively for the
renowned Queen Sirikit of Thailand to commemorate her majesty's 60th
birthday. Exquisitely opulent and masterfully jeweled, this is unequivocally the most stunning wristwatch in the world.
It is "bling-bling" in boldface, 24-type capital letters! This wristwatch will prompt the richest of hip-hop stars to pull their sleeves down past their wrists. Simply called the Queen's Watch, the case is 18 k white gold with palladium and contains 20 diamonds. It also holds 54 rubies and sapphires, and the dial is studded with 124 diamonds. The bracelet also is 18 k white gold with palladium with an additional 210 diamonds and 136 rubies. In total, there are 354 diamonds (6.43 ct.) and 282 rubies (7.25 ct).
The movement of this magnanimous wristwatch is quartz ETA 280.002. And, if her highness opts to take an impromptu dip in the pool, there are no worries, as the Queen's Watch is also water resistant to 30 meters.
Swimmingly elegant and precisely crafted, the entire Carl F. Bucherer collection is a sight to behold.
