Diamond-set women’s watch limited to just eight pieces worldwide.

Luxury pen, watch and jewellery brand Montblanc has created a limited edition timepiece dedicated to the Hollywood actress Grace Kelly, as part of a collection called Princesse Grace De Monaco, something it is pushing as part of its Valentine’s Day gift collection.

The timepiece has been dubbed the ultimate gift by Montblanc, and is limited to just eight pieces with a price tag of £59,400.

The watch is set with 76 baguette cut diamonds on its bezel and lugs, and has a pear-shaped pink sapphire set into the dial at 6 o’clock.

The case is crafted from 18ct red gold and its back is engraved with the Princesse Grace de Monaco monogram. A total 177 brilliant cut diamonds cascade across the mother-of-pearl dial.

As a final flourish the brand has set one of its own star-shaped Montblanc diamonds into the crown.

The collection was first announced by Montblanc last year and is joined by a Montblanc pen with a price tag of £630 and a diamond and pink sapphire necklace.

It is a partnership with the Princess Grace Foundation-USA, which the brand hopes to support through the collection. The timepiece was created as a tribute to Grace Kelly, who became Princess Grace of Monaco after marrying Prince Rainier III in 1956.

There is no information on the movement within this timepiece, but the dazzling little number is set onto a white alligator strap.
