Their names are suffused with a warmth and generosity creating a gentle, rhythmical sound. INSTRUMENTO, TONDO, ALLEGRA, GRAPPOLI, MECCANICO, NEW RETRO, collections with distinctive personalities that perfectly live up to their name. They are the watch collections by de GRISOGONO. Their distinctive signatures include a delicately asymmetrical structure, PVD blackened movements among which some feature the emblematic de GRISOGONO scrolling motifs, dense ‘wild’ gemsetting, stylised and substantially sized Arabic numerals, a crown set with a black diamond, and a strap dotted with galuchat.
A daring, resolute and elegant silhouette opening up a whole new creative territory
de GRISOGONO unveils a new collection of ladies’ watches that – like all the jeweller’s creations – naturally seem to have been part of the brand forever. They radiate an aesthetic that instinctively creates a strong sense of belonging, freely interpreting – from dial to case, from lugs to crown, from stylised Arabic numerals to the galuchat strap – the distinctive signatures that have for more than 20 years reflected the emblematic de GRISOGONO style.
Its name evokes its extravagant and original character, its resolutely contemporary
architecture, its singular and extraordinary nature
A watch whose proportions, together with the succession of off-centred circles composing its silhouette, immediately instil it with a distinctive and original character. By deliberately creating a nonconformist design based on a set of nested circles with varying diameters and centres, Fawaz Gruosi has found the key to a perfectly balanced geometry. The result is an impetuous watch that proclaims its bold nature.
This elegant, self-confident, sensual and subtle creation vividly epitomises the multi-facetted, free-spirited de GRISOGONO woman. A case designed like an anthem to roundness, with a spellbinding depth effect created by the off-centred circles and the play on diamonds. A dial that tells the story of time in a sweep of stylised Arabic numerals opulently laid out around a bevelled inner bezel ring.
A delicately asymmetrical architecture that extends through to the lugs – like two arms in which the round case nestles gently, enhanced by the seductive cadence of dense gemsetting. Its crown adorned with a black diamond and its galuchat-dotted strap set the perfect finishing touches of elegance to a watch endowed with the inimitable identity codes of the Maison de GRISOGONO that naturally predestine it for success.
As is its custom, de GRISOGONO adopts an apparently simple approach in revisiting a traditional shape, transcended by the singular impetus and vision of Fawaz Gruosi.
A new collection of ladies’ watches that like all the jeweller’s creations naturally seem to have been part of the brand forever
This supremely feminine jewellery watch embodies the quintessential skills cultivated by de GRISOGONO. An encounter with the artisans who have gold and diamonds at the tips of their fingers. From the first sketch to the final polishing operation on these timepieces graced with heavenly curves, de GRISOGONO reveals the secrets of its ateliers.
Volume, asymmetry and harmony are the keynotes of
an extraordinary jewellery watch
More than six months dedicated to researching the perfect shape, curve, purity and balance for the watch. From first sketch to the wax model, from 3D modelling to the mock-up, along with gold casting, gemsetting and polishing: the very heart of this timepiece turned jewellery piece – and of this jewellery piece turned timepiece – relies on a clever blend of harmoniously balanced dimensions and asymmetrical effects.
None of the lines are straight in this creation that is instead all about rounded curves. A cambered and bevelled bezel, a domed dial, along with half-moon outlines, all contribute to an atypical timepiece conceived as a piece of jewellery. The LUNA watch symbolises the de GRISOGONO philosophy based on an absolute aesthetic quest, that in turn calls for outstanding technical solutions in order to give life to form while adapting to function.
