Objects of Desire: DeGrisogono Watches

In the world of prestigious luxury timepieces for men and women, DeGrisogono watches stand out from the rest. These distinctively styled wristwatches offer an extraordinary sense of time with uniquely designed cases and opulent characteristics.

Founded in 1993 by jeweler and watch designer Fawaz Gruosi, DeGrisogono holds the distinction of being a one of the most prestigious and heralded jewelry brands in the world today. Gruosi’s use of black diamonds in his jewelry collections during the mid 1990’s made the brand an international sensation with boutiques in Florence, Rome and Porto Cervo, Italy, London, England and Gstaad, Switzerland.

Gruosi, who is married to Caroline Gruosi Scheufele, heir of the Chopard watch brand, was commissioned in the late 1990’s by Chopard to design black diamond watches for Chopard, including the hugely successful Ice Cube Collection. The success of the latter collection inspired Gruosi to introduce the DeGrisogono Instrumento No Uno men’s watch series in 2000 and the women’s Instrumentino collection a year later.DEGRISOGONO-GNTINOACIERN04B

Both the Instrumento and Instrumentino series are still in production today along with a wide assortment of other trend-setting timepieces from DeGrisogono. You’ll find many high-end DeGrisogono wristwatches for men and women at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com, including the Instrumentino dual-time women’s diamond watch.

This captivating women’s timepiece features a lustrous square-shaped case in stainless steel, highly polished to a mirror bright. The lustrous triple link bracelet adds to the thoroughly modern design. Shimmering, premium-grade round-cut diamonds weave intrigue  on the lugs of the lustrous case.

The dramatic dual-time black dial sparkles with luminous hands and 36 round-cut diamonds are pave-set to perfection on the round and baton hour markers of the upper dial. Oversized, highly stylized Arabic numeral hour markers on the lower second dial add to the stylish design.

Features include premium Swiss-made quartz movement inside and water-resistance to 30 meters or 100 feet. Ladies’ dress watch is 29mm wide and 10mm thick.
