de Grisogono Introduces New Retro Power Reserve

De Grisogono New Retro Power Reserve

The Geneva-based jeweller’s New Retro watch is an odd duck. It’s a rectangular watch that feels like it’s been deliberately put on its side, wider than it is all unlike the Tank or the Reverso. While the 2015 version has its charm though, the new 2018 Power Reserve model is something else entirely. Retro? Perhaps not, but new for sure.

The whole rectangle has been skeletonised, giving over the space in favour of architectural bridges and the movement on full show. You could easily miss the power reserve at 12 o’clock, but thankfully the watch as a whole isn’t nearly so subtle; degrisogono.com
