100 BRANDS AT BASELWORLD: No.23 – Burberry

HQ_Burberry_TheBritainIconCheckForWomen_BIG.jpg

The iconic “Check” motif lining Burberry trench coats finds a new gold and diamond interpretation designed by Christopher Bailey, chief creative officer and CEO of the British brand.

The Britain Icon Check for Women, made exclusively to order, reproduces this motif in a precious woven pattern hand-set on a mother-of-pearl dial.

The diamonds magnify this design created in the 1920s, accentuated by the stones incrusted in double rows on the bezel. Entirely crafted in Switzerland, this exceptional model also embodies traditional watchmaking expertise with the brand-new automatic STP3-13 swan’s neck movement beating at its heart.
