de Grisogono New Retro

de Grisogono presents two New Retro at Baselworld 2018: the New Retro Double Jeu and the New Retro Power Reserve.

New Retro Double Jeu

The New Retro Double Jeu is a surprising and offbeat model that diverts the primary purpose of the oscillating weight. While this watch is in fact driven by a quartz movement, its audacity lies elsewhere: it houses an automatic animation module. While the dial provides a dual display – in a rectangular sapphire format and in a circular format – either flinqué or snowset, held by four rhodium-plated anthracite bridges –, the gaze is in fact drawn to the profile-turned outlines of a half-moon oscillating weight. With each flick of the wrist, and when the oscillating weight has performed one rotation, the dial suddenly springs to life. 

On either side of the dial, the stylised 3 and 9 o’clock Arabic numerals set with 82 diamonds pivot to reveal different colours on the front and back: brown and white diamonds for the pink gold model; and white and black diamonds for white gold.

The New Retro Double Jeu comes in a choice of white or pink gold, with its rectangular case either framed by a 1.3-carat row of diamonds, or entirely set with diamonds totalling 4.3 carats. It is fitted with a white or black galuchat strap, equipped with a triple folding clasp.

New Retro Power Reserve

The New Retro Power Reserve reveals a new complication. Here again, the daring approach lies not in the power reserve itself, but in its original stage-setting. The New Retro is elegantly and soberly paired with this ‘form’ movement specifically developed to equip its rectangular case. The in-line calibre is skeletonised so as to reveal the exquisite delicacy of its finishing. This sophisticated mechanism can be admired through the openworking, held by stylised anthracite rhodium-plated bridges with a structure subtly reminiscent of the radiator grilles on vintage cars. 

From the circular satin-brushed gear train to the sunburst ratchet wheel and the sandblasted mainplate and bridges, ultimate refinement is visible in each and every detail.
