EAnglophiles mightght recognise the striking riking floral symbol on n the 44.1mm yellow gold pocket watch. It’s the Tudor Rose, England’s heraldic emblemm that arose during theh Td Tudor D Dynasty (1485-1603). The elaborate decoration was achieved using a variety of artisanal treatments: cloisonné enamelling, enamelling in relief, and gem-setting. Emeralds and red spinels are used on the dial and crown respectively, while even more stones are set in four cylinders on the gold chain. How’s that for some bling?
