Grimoldi Milano GTO Watch

The family owned Italian Jewellery Company Grimoldi Milano was founded by Anselmo e Rosanna Grimoldi in 1964. Today, managed by his descendents, the company has been specialized in the manufacturing of high jewellery creations and watches.

Switzerland is well-renowned in the production and distribution of luxury and fashion watches. Grimoldi has revisited the styles adding an aesthetic value to the Swiss creations thanks to a refined, original and innovative design, thus ensuring the high quality of the product.

Grimoldi Milano G.T.O Watch

Gran Tipo Ovale: big…type…oval…The G.T.O watch is a fusion of two icons: The 1970s Grimoldi Borgonovo Watch designed by Giorgio Grimoldi, the son of the founder and the legendary Ferrari 250 GTO, the most valuable collector car in the world.

Grimoldi Milano G.T.O Watch

The fluid curve which characterized the Borgonovo watch project is enriched with vibrant emotions, sparked by the idea to interpret and capture the smooth, romantic and aggressive forms of Ferrari 250 G.T.O.
