About the Victoria Collection
Drawn from the Backes & Strauss archives, a 19th century brooch with two linked hearts was the starting point for today’s Backes & Strauss sumptuous Victoria diamond watches. Those linked hearts are now fully intertwined and they have become their own motif, repeated again and again in a circle of everlasting love, like that of Queen Victoria for her husband Albert. She was so smitten with him, she proposed the second time they met.
