Making a foray into the world of fine timepieces is famed luxury mobile manufacturer, Gresso who unveiled its first collection of watches at Baselworld 2010. The collection christened, Grand Wind Skeleton made a grand impression on one and all. Advanced technology and accurate movement are the characteristics of this collection. Believers in perfection, Gresso developed over 100 prototypes before finalizing on this collection. The Grand Wind Skeleton timepiece is in close connection with the term ‘self-winding’. A massive rotor of 18ct gold situated on the front of the dial adds the finishing touches to this exquisite creation.
The exquisite timepiece features a classy 45mm case made of 18ct gold. Furthermore, Gresso designers and engineers have made use of carbon while making the watchcase. The Grand Wind Skeleton watch is powered by an original Gresso G1 movement based on ETA 2671, frequency 28,800 vph, which is protected by a specially designed shockproof system. Watch connoisseurs can observe the skeletonized movement from both the external as well as internal side of the watch. One window will give you a glimpse of the movement while in the other you can see the second hand made in the form of a three blade propeller. The dial is as unique as the movement featuring two intersecting circles. The bezel is set off with engraved roman numerals X11 and VI in their respective places. Completing the look of this aesthetically designed masterpiece is the black crocodile leather strap.
The exceptional timepiece is created in a limited edition of 200 pieces (100 cased in rose gold and 100 cased in white gold) with each bearing the company logo and individual number on the case back.
Priced at $60,000, this timepiece is for the select few only. A collection that beautifully blends art and technology it is truly a class apart.
