Two ‘premiere mondial’ watches launched at basel 2012

19th April 2012

Graff is pleased to announce the launch of two ‘premiere mondial’ watches at Basel 2012.

Both a first in the world of haute horology, these models push the boundaries of both watchmaking and diamond design and are set to become classic examples of watch innovation within the industry.

Both models feature in the MasterGraff collection – a series of technical timepieces all featuring Graff’s signature faceted case, triangular gemstone at 12 o’clock and a tourbillion complication.


The horologically advanced and beautifully designed GyroGraff features two impressive complications that have never been seen before in the same movement; a stunning three-dimensional moon phase indicator and double-axis tourbillon. The innovative ‘gyrograph’ moon phase indicator is hand engraved in white or rose gold and charts the daily progression of moon phases and is cleverly encased within a multi-level guilloche dial, off-set at 8 o’clock in complement to the tourbillon at 5 o’clock and delicate 60 hour power reserve indicator at 11 o’clock.

The GyroGraff is presented within a 48mm rose gold case with black crocodile strap and is limited to 10 pieces.

Inspired by the MasterGraff Diamond Skeleton launched at Basel 2011, the MasterGraff Skeleton Automatic features an astonishing automatic skeleton movement set with diamonds and emeralds on both sides – a world first for horology.

The diamond set 48mm case and skeletonised movement both display an exceptional level of skill within the worlds of horology and diamond setting expertise, and in the case of this MasterGraff Skeleton model, the addition of a diamond and emerald set rotor raises the watch to yet greater heights of innovation. A ‘world premiere’ in the world of watchmaking, the achievement of a rotor set into a skeletonised movement is amplified further by the challenge to balance the rotor perfectly, a difficult task due to the weight of the rotor itself, hand set with 64 diamonds and 10 emeralds.

The MasterGraff Skeleton Automatic is limited to 10 pieces in both rose and white gold fitted with a black alligator leather strap secured by an exclusive Graff folding clasp.
