de GRISOGONO lives up to the reputation of being a forerunner when it comes to the mélange of high jewellery and watchmaking. ECCENTRICA adds to the enigma.
de GRISOGONO’s collection of ladies’ watches, ECCENTRICA has a distinct aesthetic. A time jewel might just be a better way to address this timepiece. It has all the characteristics of a stellar de GRISOGONO: The bejewelled dial, the aesthetic case, stylised Arabic numerals and the galuchat strap. All these evoke the distinct signatures that reflect pure de GRISOGONO style.
What you will notice foremost are the succession of off-centred circles composing the dial. This is accentuated by the distinctive and original shape of the case. This is indeed an extremely nonconformist design. The set of nested circles have varying diameters and centres, but yet exude a perfectly balanced geometry.
The very name itself, ECCENTRICA, alludes to the bold differences apparent in the design. The watch has contemporary architecture and is an elegant and sensual creation that perfectly captures the essence of the free-spirited de GRISOGONO woman.
The play on the diamonds on the dial is dazzling to say the least. The stylised Arabic numerals are opulently laid out around a bevelled inner bezel ring. The crown is also adorned with a black diamond and its galuchat-dotted strap sets the perfect finishing touches of elegance. the straps also experiment with bold colours- unapologetic and strong in every sense.
“Creative design is about constantly reinventing oneself while remaining true to one’s identity. Preciously safeguarding the attributes of a distinctive and authentic character. Creating the unexpected, springing surprises. Introducing visual novelty while instilling a deep sense of continuity and consistency,” says Fawaz Gruosi, Founder & Creative Director of the brand.
de GRISOGONO’s ECCENTRICA sticks to this vision of creativity. The watch revisits a traditional shape and the authentic codes that provide an identity to the brand. Yet, it transcends all these to transform into a contemporary piece of architecture, dazzling with the precious beauty of diamonds and the allure of elegance.
