The new de Grisogono watch will be unveiled at Baselworld 2011.
The heart of the timepiece is an in-house hand-wound movement composed of 651 components. The analogue display of the hours and minutes is presented with help of white hour-markers and hands. The mechanical digital display shows time in the second time zone. It is presented with help of white mobile micro-segments driven by 23 cams, along with gears and a triggering/synchronisation mechanism. The transition between one indication and the next requires the instantaneous 90° rotation of between 1 and 12 different segments.
The 111-ruby movement offers 36 hours of power reserve.
The new de Grisogono dG Meccanico watch is 30-meter water-resistant. The sapphire crystal case-back allows to see the intricacies of the movement.
