Gresso Co is known as the manufacturer of hi-tech luxury mobile phones. But recent Baselworld 2010 saw the first Gresso watch collection – Grand Wind Skeleton.
Well done, Gresso! In reality the dev elopment of the Grand Wind Skeleton Collection took long three years. Gresso’s designers and engineers used over 100 prototypes and not in vein. In result they got the ideal realization – the Gresso watch debut.
Gresso specialists managed to combine expressive appearance of the new Grand Wind Skeleton watch collection and innovative interior decoration. All the company’s stylistic traditions found the reflection in the new watch models.
In designing the watch case Gresso engineers used carbon, a light and incredibly strong material. In fact, carbon is 5 times lighter then steel and 2 times lighter then aluminum, but it equals these materials in strength. Gresso was the first to use this metal in horology. Until Gresso’s challenge, it was used in space industry only.
Grand Wind Skeleton watches have self-winding movement. To bring this module to life Gresso had developed its own movement Gresso G1. Its frequency is 28 800 semi-vibrations per hour, and the power reserve of the watch is 38 hours. The skeletonized movement is visible from both the external and the internal part of the case.
Grand Wind Skeleton watch characteristics:
Case size: 45 mm
Case material: 18K rose or white gold
Movement: automatic Gresso G1
Functions: hours, minutes on the front side, seconds on the reserve part of the case
Dial: black-carbon inlays, the company’s logo in gold
Wristlet: black crocodile leather
For those, who fell in love with the new models, I can reckon that there are only 100 pieces cased in rose gold, and 100 pieces cased in white gold. The price of the piece is $60 000.
