Brexit Collection Trio

The only thing worse than attracting controversy is attracting no attention at all.

The playfully patriotic series have gem-set Union Jacks on their dials made up from diamonds, rubies and sapphires.

There are three styles, the square-shaped Berkeley, the round Piccadilly and the oval-shaped Regent.

Each is available in 18ct white gold or steel.
