Introduced in 2005, the Instrumento Grande by de Grisogono is a chic and resolutely masculine timepiece featuring an extremely large date displaying and an imposing rectangular case.
Clear, easy to read and functional, this is what Instrumento Grande’s oversized date is all about. This self-winding, mechanical model has the largest display of this kind on a wristwatch. For this purpose, de GRISOGONO has developed an exclusive, patented auxiliary module.
Curved on both sides, Grande’s generous dimensions form a horizontal rectangle on the wrist, echoed by the equally sober, rectangular aperture of its date calendar. Original in every respect, Instrumento Grande also features an aperture on the edge of the case at 9 o’clock, where a sapphire crystal provides an unusual perspective of the movement and the auxiliary de GRISOGONO module, a feature that cannot but delight aficionados of watchmaking originality.
The back of the case is also fitted with sapphire crystal through which one can admire the oscillating weight, engraved with the words “INSTRUMENTO GRANDE” while the crown bears the de GRISOGONO crest.
