Contemporary baroque meets must-have complication
Swiss luxury watchmaker de GRISOGONO continues to engage with the art of design and high watchmaking, presenting quintessential expressions of the manufactory in a clearly contemporary new edition that mixes a powerful and creative design with a must- have complication: the Instrumento N. Uno Big Date!
The de GRISOGONO in-house design team made a number of changes to the successful Instrumento N. Uno DF XL from 2012 in order to achieve a stunning new and unique contemporary baroque look. The result is an extremely versatile watch intended to be worn on every occasion. The tonneau shaped case now frames a new and beautifully finished dial with a classical Clou de Paris Guilloche pattern that is emblematic of the art of high watchmaking.
de GRISOGONO ́s compelling functional and easy to read big date display is presented at six o ́clock and is one of the biggest in the market. The new and improved version debuting with the Uno Big Date is, as expected, clear, easy to read and functional. Together with the Superluminova covered dauphine hands and indexes, the dial uses several materials that bring out distinct shades on the dial.
Along with these superb new visuals, the de GRISOGONO in-house designers have made a number of more subtle, but no less effective changes to the case of this watch. This is the example of the new lugs that now include a patented adjustable system for improved comfort on the wrist, and a unique new crown.
The new timepieces are presented in a generous 57.51 x 44.15 mm tonneau shaped case with a complex architecture mixing several materials. Three versions are available in a choice of polished pink gold and matt brown PVD coated titanium, satin polished white gold and matt black PVD coated titanium, and matt and shiny black PVD coated white gold and titanium, each with matching alligator bracelet and clasp that attaches the watch perfectly to the wearer’s wrist.
The Instrumento N. Uno Big Date is driven by a new version of the superb mechanical GD 15- 89 caliber with automatic winding, 42 hours of power reserve, hours, minutes and big date functions. Easily admired through the generous sapphire crystal set in the case back, caliber GD 15-89 features 22 rubies and a decorated blackened movement with the exquisite high grade finishing characteristic of the de GRISOGONO manufacture.
