de Grisogono supports this leading non profit organization that strives to transform children’s lives by helping scientific and medical research on neuromuscular diseases in general and Duchenne muscular dystrophy in particular by donating a one of a kind piece of its New Retro collection. A sleek, elegant watch expressing a taste for things that are beautiful in their own right. Set on the back with four stripes of black diamonds, the New Retro Black Stripes perfectly embodies de Grisogono style with deep house-signature black tones. 22 years ago, Fawaz Gruosi, de Grisogono’s founder and creative director has raised the hitherto neglected black diamonds as one of the brand’s upmost signature. An intriguing, captivating, darkly dangerous carbonado extremely challenging to cut, that has since become a major jewellery trend. A stone that reveals its inner beauty to the ones who know how to capture its soul.
Made of clear, simple lines, the New Retro Black Stripes large rectangular case is balanced with gently sensuous rounded angles. A minimalist, uncompromising design that soberly expresses time in a two-handed model. A watch with zero horological complications. Cut-outs at 3 and 9 o’clock create a transparent effect and the impression that both the dial and the movement are suspended in a glass cage. The two curved sapphire crystals are identical and subtly connected by a thin gold ban.
