Hands On With The Graff Diamond MasterGraff Structural Tourbillon Skeleton by Graff


The name Graff immediately brings to mind world’s best ‘Diamonds’. And, Graff Luxury Watches are all about ‘Haute Horology’. Combining the two magically is the Diamond MasterGraff Structural Tourbillon Skeleton, a world premiere launched at Baselworld this year, as part of the jeweller-watchmaker’s new men’s collections.

Visually, it is the case that strikes most, incorporating an incredible ‘Invisible Structural Setting’. This stone-setting technique has been patented by Graff. It is unique in a sense that a special hexagon shaped diamond is flanked by two pieces of trillion diamonds on either side. Further, the framework in 18-karat rose gold reproduces the facets of the brand’s iconic bezel case, inspired by the shape of a perfectly cut diamond.

This is what “When Graff Luxury Watches launched in 2009, we pledged to push the boundaries of horology and diamond design, taking each new collection to the next level,” said Michel Pitteloud, CEO of Graff Luxury Watches. The Diamond MasterGraff Structural Tourbillon Skeleton proves that the company’s vision is moving in just that direction.

Christophe Claret Unveils The Marguerite Ladies Timepiece



Like the Margot before it, the dial of the Marguerite features a white daisy with lacquered petals and two butterflies. The watch’s butterflies aren’t just for show, however. They both work together to tell the time. The shorter butterfly signifies the hour, while the butterfly in flight represents the minutes. Both butterflies move across the dial like a minute and hour hand would on a typical watch. Depending on the piece, a gleaming red ruby or blue sapphire will rest at the center of the daisy in the middle of the dial.
The Marguerite is available in a 42.5mm 18-karat white or rose gold case, and features 100 diamonds laid on the bezel and lugs in different patterns. One version of the watch features a “flake” setting where the diamonds are sprinkled on the case seemingly at random, emulating the scattering of snow flakes. The other available setting for the watch, called “champagne,” concentrates the diamonds toward the bottom of the bezel.
Just 30 pieces of each of the four versions of the watch will be created.
