Launching exclusively at Baselworld, The Graff Minute Repeater is the latest addition to the MasterGraff watch collection, and a new benchmark in Graff’s horological.
Since the establishment of the dedicated watch division in 2008, the Graff master watchmakers have acquired an international reputation for complex and intricate movements, elegant designs and, of course, the eye-catching magnificence of the diamond-set casings.
Now, a new level of mechanical precision is attained with the launch of the Graff Minute Repeater. One of the most complicated repeater mechanisms in horology, the minute repeater is triggered by a sliding bolt positioned at 9 o’clock on Graff’s signature faceted bezel, with two hammers striking two gongs to sound the hours, quarter hours and minutes across a spectrum of low to high tones.
Crafted in Geneva, this exceptional timepiece is available in both nondiamond and diamond-set versions, all featuring a flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock, mother-of-pearl bridges, a black crocodile strap and an open-work dial in grey or blue smoked acrylic. Bezel options include 18k rose or white gold, and the diamond setting includes 256 individual gemstones – a total of 20.07 carats – cut and hand-set by Graff’s unrivalled gem-setters.
The technology behind the MasterGraff Minute Repeater dates back more than three centuries, and the gemstones in its diamond versions are many millennia older than that. With astonishing attention to detail and a flair for elegance, Graff’s Swiss watchmakers have created a unique timepiece that will continue to tell – and sound – the time for generations to come.
