DOXA Grande Calendar

This year at Baselworld, DOXA presents a novelty from the GrandeMetre line - the Grande Calendar, a skilful combination of elegance, minimalist design and practical functionality.

The GrandeMetre is the synonym of fine watchmaking craftsmanship. The importance of the Collection is realized in its models endowed with skeletal dials and COSC certified movements. The new Grande Calendar model introduced this year elevates the functionality of the watch to a higher level by bringing aesthetics and practicality to pinnacle.

Inheriting the simple yet elegant aesthetics of the GrandeMetre collection, the new Grande Calendar presents an exemplary design of sheer grace. Its round 316L stainless steel case, 42 mm in diameter and adorned with a bezel coming in either 18K rose-gold or 18K yellow-gold, underlines the perfect size of a watch and embodies subtle sophistication. The sleekness of the case is complemented by the soft curves of its lugs, forming a timeless composition in harmony.
The patterned inner-ring at the centre of the ivory white dial, which is neatly inscribed with the brand’s logo and the collection’s name, strikes a vivid contrast with the polished outer-ring. Around the dial, the fine bar indexes and precise minute scale work perfectly with the hour, minute and second hands to provide easy-to-read time indications. The prominent highlight of this timepiece is the twin window enclosed within an exquisite rectangular frame at 3H, which serves as a date indicator to offer excellent readability by displaying the numerals big and clear.

While the dial design incorporates classic and simple elements, there are still many refined details embedded in the various parts of the timepiece. For example, the brand logo “DOXA” is embossed on the crown, whilst a name tag available in 18K rose gold, 18K yellow gold or steel is embellished on the buckle. In addition, the initials “GC” – standing for “Grande Calendar” – is engraved at the centre of the transparent caseback, through which one can have a clear view of the meticulous Swiss-made automatic movement. Last but not least, the six screws tightening up the caseback offer a water resistance of up to 50 meters. This model is limited to 500 pieces exclusively.
