de Grisogono Instrumentino Steel & Diamonds’ original design
is really eye-catching with its harmonious proportions, streamlined silhouette and square-shaped bezel.
Combining strength and softness, fashionable style and improved legibility, this watch definitely contributes to the sophisticated, feminine feel.
Refined gem settings
The Instrumentino’s steel case demonstrates two new dial interpretations, with graceful trim, performed, however, in a completely different style. Unlike the original models demonstrating a scant sprinkling of the diamonds set on the hour markers as well as on the mobile case lugs, innovative designs are distinguished by the contemporary sheen with a thousand fires.
There is a contrast between the refined finish of their polished steel case and the diamond-set versions of the dial
along with the black « volutes » scrollwork motifs, valued so highly by de Grisogono
One model reveals 19 brilliant-cut diamonds
set into the counter at 6 o’clock demonstrating the second time-zone. The timepiece also comes with a setting of 64 brilliant-cut stones
encircling the first time-zone indication in the shape of a lunar eclipse.
Six black diamonds
at 3, 9 and 12 o’clock complement the contrast feel.
Distinguished from the original Instrumentino Steel & Diamonds, displaying the time in both time-zones with diamond-set hour markers and Arabic numerals too big in size, the two newly fresh interpretations have decided on a quiet chic.
The legibility of a dial face
is achieved due to small markers of “nailhead” type along with the absence of numerals.
De Grisogono's customary attention to detail has been mirrored in the Instrumentino Steel & Diamonds black galuchat strap
, with mobile links joining it to the case.
Enjoy a wide range of innovative de Grisogono watches:
The de Grisogono Instrumento Occhio Ripetizione Minuti
, initially unveiled in 2005 and rightfully considered to be one of the most ambitious and exclusive timekeeping creations of the brand, has now been recreated to demonstrate a majestic case adorned with a multitude of baguette diamonds.
Titled as Queen of Complications, the outstanding minute repeater watch is equipped with a mechanism suggested by the mechanism of reflex cameras. The dial of the watch is created as a diaphragm
, formed by twelve mobile titanium blades. The diaphragm opens and closes when it is necessary, and allows to admire the beauty of the movement while the chimes are striking.
Based on an identical principle, the watch’s diaphragm subassembly
is, in fact, more compact and resistant than the one of reflex cameras. The moment the minute repeater is triggered, the diaphragm opens by the simultaneous movement of all twelve blades and closes as soon as the hours, quarters and minutes have stricken on three gongs.
