De Grisogono Meccanico DG
De Grisogono is producing another limited edition of the first mechanical digital display, originally introduced at Baselworld in 2008. For the most part, the timepiece is un-changed. Some of the movement parts, which are visible through the partially skeletonized dial have now been upgraded with new finishes and materials. The result is a slightly better look, but at a glance the watch is nearly identical to the original piece.
The DG Meccanico was a hit at the 2008 Baselworld show. It features a movement comprising no fewer than 651 elements, two time zones, one in an analog display, the other in a mechanical digital display. The movement is the hand-wound DG 042 caliber that runs at 28,800 vph and has a 35-hour power reserve. The upper part of the dial shows the analog display of hours and minutes, and in the lower part of the dial is the unique mechanical digital display of a second time zone. The 56 x 48 mm case is a curved rectangular shape, made of either titanium, 18K pink gold, titanium and 18k pink gold, titanium and rubber, or titanium and platinum.
A sapphire crystal is used on the front and back. The pushers and crown are covered in vulcanized rubber. Water-resistance is 30 meters. The dial is slightly tinted, resulting in a transparent black look. The hands come in green or gold, depending on which variation you choose. The bracelet is black natural rubber with a titanium or 18K pink gold folding clasp.
