Off the beaten track, it is in its own watch workshop that de GRISOGONO inventive creations take shape. Since its first watchmaking venture in 2000, every project has been carried out internally while some watchmaking breakthroughs and unusual mechanisms have been protected by patented registrations and awarded with the prestigious Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. de GRISOGONO excels at fitting movements with auxiliary modules, pushing the boundaries of time measurement.

A fascinating interplay between form and functions named INSTRUMENTO. This collection emphasizes mechanical time measuring instruments by proposing an array of complications such as dual time zone and oversized date calendar.
