CAVIAR-plate of Robbe & Berking

For epicures and connoisseurs

Collectors and connoisseurs of unusual tastes can receive this watch in an elegant watch case, made in Wenge, together with a hand-forged caviar set made of 925 sterling silver for 2 people – both have been specially created for the Royal Black Caviar set by Robbe & Berking.

The caviar server is crowned by a handle that has been made of individual parts and shaped like a sturgeon. The silver caviar spoons are plated with 24 carat gold and the custom-made tray is surrounded by a silver frame. Each watch is given to its new owner by His Highness York, Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe in person. The name and personal watch number are engraved on a solid 925 sterling silver plate on the box, which is delivered together with a fresh jar of Royal Black Finest Caviar from Prunier Caviar House.

The YORK name stands for watches that tell a story, making it possible to wear a piece of history on your wrist. York, Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe has dedicated the “Royal Black Caviar” set to his great-great-grandmother Grand Duchess Vera Constantinovna Romanova of Russia (1854–1912) to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the Romanov dynasty.

STONE WATCH CASE

For collectors and individualists

Built by Count Wilhelm Schaumburg-Lippe, Fort de Lippe in Elvas, Portugal was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2012. To commemorate this special occasion, a collector’s edition of the Fort de Lippe masterpieces has been released, comprising three watches in rose gold: the Fort de Lippe Original, the Fort de Lippe Blue Heritage and the completely skeletonised watch, Fort de Lippe Falcon Diamond. Strictly limited to 9 pieces, this edition is exclusively available in so-called “repdigits” – numbers with identical digits, which are very popular amongst collectors – taken from the 99 piece limited edition numbered range of this watch collection. Numbers 11 and 33 have already been taken.
The unusual-looking watch case has been made from quartzite slate and takes its shape from the strategic design of the historic fortress walls. On the inner side of the lid, there is an image of a line drawing of the outer fortress walls, the original of which has still be preserved. Beneath this, the name and date of the personal delivery to the collector have been perpetuated for eternity. The three watches lie on a velour lining, in the box’s sturdy main compartment, together with an engraved number plate. The box’s design and the careful handmade creation of the watch case originate from the house of Kussmaul GmbH.

VINTAGE LEATHER WATCH STRAPS

For automobile lovers

This year, the overall winner of the YORK Concours Chrono 2015 will again receive a rally chronograph from the “Max Sause” collection, personally designed by Prince York. The steel special edition for 2015 takes inspiration from the colour scheme of the Mercedes Benz 380 Special Roadster, built especially for great-uncle Prince Max, with a black watch face and red second hand. The watches numbering 1 to 30 are optionally provisionally reserved for the rally teams and have a hand-crafted watch strap made using the grey seat leather of a vintage Mercedes 300 SL roadster. Popular amongst collectors, the 464 chronographs produced are – as is standard practice for YORK – only available upon request through the personalised concierge service and from selected partners.
