It was just last year that the brand unveiled the Retro collection of horizontal rectangular watches for men inspired by the 1950’s. The line was an immediate hit as not only a look back to the past, but also a decidedly modern take on that past. Now, with the first Retro watches for women, de Grisogono has hit a home run again. By infusing the line with bold influences of color and gemstones, de Grisogono wows us with choice elegance.
The new Retro Lady Baguette watches feature the same horizontally placed rectangular case, with crown at 12:00 on the case, but these beauties are now adorned in color. The four pieces in the collection represents the four elements: air, created in diamonds; water, created in sapphires; fire created in rubies; and Earth, created in emeralds. These lush baguette-cut colored stones adorn the cases of the collection, whose timeless elegance speaks volumes. Each watch is bedecked with varying numbers of baguette-cut stones (depending on the model), and each watch features a sapphire crystal case back for viewing the automatic movement. The dial features Arabic numerals, dauphine hands and a crown with the de Grisogono coat of arms – for a package that is steeped in high-jeweled beauty and top-notch craftsmanship.
