Glistening watch breaks record with 17,524 diamonds

A glittering watch has broken the Guinness World Records title for the most diamonds set on a watch.

The end watch has 17,512 white diamonds and 12 black diamonds, and started with hand drawn sketches to work out the design.

After the initial design was finalized, it was recreated in 3D as a computer-aided-design and then printed.

All the diamonds were then meticulously placed onto the watch and it took five different forms of polishing to give it the desired look.

The watch is named Srinkia - the watch of good fortune, and was inspired by ancient Indian mythology, Srinkia which means flower.

This record-breaking watch beat the previous record of 15,858 diamonds back in December 2018.
