A bejeweled work of horological artistry, this clock was almost certainly made by the royal jewelers, Asprey & Company, for the legendary collection of the Sultan of Brunei, a man known for his voracious appetite for rare luxuries. Its delicate, sinuous form takes its inspiration from the expressive Art Nouveau style, and it is crafted in an array of extravagant materials. The clock is contained within a brilliant 18K yellow gold case held aloft by richly hued plique-à-jour butterflies that flutter among the vine-like curved gold of its stand. The clock’s face gracefully floats within a circle of rock crystal and is elaborately decorated in crimson champlevé enamel, displaying the time with diamond-encrusted hands. Additional enamel, diamond and seed pearl details abound, resulting in a sumptuous creation synthesizing ornament and structure.  

Counted among the finest purveyors of jewelry and luxury goods, London-based Asprey & Company was founded in 1781 and quickly grew into the luxury emporium it is known as today. Hiring the most highly regarded craftsmen and designers in Europe, the company touches every part of the luxury industry. Currently, it holds a Royal Warrant of appointment from the Prince of Wales. Its first royal warrant was granted in 1862 by Queen Victoria, and since then, the company has supplied crowns, coronets and stunning jewelry creations for royal families around the world. The company was briefly owned by Prince Jefri Bolkiah, brother of the Sultan of Brunei, from 1995 until 2000.

Joining legendary royal jewelers Garrard & Company in 1998, Asprey enjoyed continued success and royal patronage from Queen Elizabeth II, the Queen Mother, and Prince Charles. Recently, the company was commissioned to create the diamond ring for Prince Edward's engagement to Sophie Rhys-Jones. Garrard & Asprey parted company in 2000, with Garrard continuing its global promotion as a high-margin brand and Asprey retaining its low-key exclusivity.
