In 2015, de GRISOGONO unveiled its new Retro collection after seven years of R&D, which included shaping a rectangular case graced with softly rounded angles and elegant, well-controlled curves. The result was a minimalist watch whose complexity stems from its construction, featuring a case composed of two cambered and perfectly matched sapphire crystals, elegantly united by a slender ribbon of gold. Now, the brand updates this collection by presenting a tourbillon model that pays tribute to the legendary complication in a daring and spectacular style.
This in-line skeleton movement flaunts its non-conformist appearance and reveals its intricate inner workings in an oblong format smoothly embracing the case middle. At 3 o’clock, the heart of the movement – the balance-wheel, balance-spring and escapement – and its 83 components defy gravity.
This original construction pays tribute to the past and to one of the noblest inventions, patented in 1801, while offering a vision firmly embedded in the present. A numbered movement issued in a 25-piece limited edition, housed in a pink or white gold case. The dG 31-88 calibre operates at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour and has a 72-hour power reserve.
Water-resistant to 30 metres, the New Retro Skeleton Tourbillon is teamed with an alligator leather strap featuring large square scales and a saddle finish.
