De Grisogono - Tondo Tourbillon Gioiello Watch

De Grisogono - Tondo Tourbillon Gioiello Watch

The brand’s latest creation, the Tondo Tourbillon Gioiello clothes in diamonds its new exclusive mechanical movement equipped with an offset tourbillon at 8 o’clock, reinterpreting this Grande Complication for the first time in a model dedicated to women. Available in white gold and distinguished by its oval shape, the Tondo XL case sparkles with the over 5 carats of white diamonds, running from the case sides over the horns and bracelet attachments. 33 larger-sized diamonds rim the bezel, giving it a dazzling glow. Its daring architecture and its exclusive calibre once again embody the creative vivacity of de Grisogono. A gem of Fine Watchmaking, the Tondo Tourbillon Gioiello offers a refined association between the precious jewellery spirit and highly sophisticated technical watchmaking.
