de Grisogono Fuso Quadrato Watch -Another Fawaz Gruosi's Masterpiece

May 05, 2009
de Grisogono Fuso Quadrato watch collection perfectly reflects the innovative spirit of the brand and creative personality of its founder and President Fawaz Gruosi.

The zest of the Fuso Quadrato watch is a one-of-a-kind display of the second timezone function. The timepiece, with two superposed dials, incorporates the brands signature diaphragm mechanism that hides or reveals the second timezone display when necessary.

Fawaz Gruosi introduced the first true diaphragm on a wristwatch, named Occhio Ripetizione Minuti. The diaphragm demonstrates a sophisticated design and construction built from most delicate components.

Now, the unique diaphragm mechanism has been incorporated into a double timezone display. It is operated by a slide found on the case flank opposite the winding crown. The diaphragm has 12 titanium blades that open to show the second timezone dial or close to show just the local time.

The Fuso Quadrato watch accommodates a self-winding mechanical movement beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour. It gives an advantage of a 42-hour power reserve. The local time is shown by the hour and minute hands positioned in the center. As for the second timezone, it is presented via a 12-hour dial with help of a black frame hand.

The black upper dial of the timepiece
demonstrates a satin-finished center zone and a fine-grain sandblasted outer zone. The hour markers and applied numerals are of the same metal color as the case. The lower dial of the same metal color is embellished with clou de Paris cobbled finish and is completed with black hour markers and Roman numerals.

The case of the Fuso Quadrato watch, reviewed by, is sculptured in 18K pink or white gold. It provides supreme ergonomic comfort and radiates with flawless elegance. The case is 47 mm wide. It features a square silhouette with delicately rounded lines and hugs the wrist closely. The comfort of wearing is further enhanced by the mobility of the strap lugs. The sapphire crystal is also curved matching the case profile.

The crown and diaphragm slide both have the corporate crest.

The de Grisogono Fuso Quadrato watch is 30-meter water-resistant. It is secured to the wrist with a genuine alligator leather strap equipped with a triple deployment clasp of the same color as the case.
