The watch manufacturer Italian Visconti headquartered in Florence made a name especially for its high quality writing instruments. In the meantime, Visconti is underway in the world of watches – and is known for his designs of unorthodox and alluring watches with a certain touch of Vanguard. The manufacturer has no concern to attract the masses, but rather watch lovers who can appreciate the concept of design of extraordinary Italian watches.
Visconti has added two new versions to its Grand Cruise models with a display of GMT. Previous models had a stainless steel or bronze. The two new versions have a mixture of two materials: a box in bronze goes with a stainless steel bezel, or else a stainless steel case is matched with a bronze bezel.
The general appearance of these watches is very masculine with a Steampunk attitude, is also unique and individual. Maritime details are an important role – of vague engraving on half lower blue dial until the wind rose engraved on the bezel.
The case of watches has a robust 45 mm diameter, with the Crown up to same 54.4 mm in width. In combination with a thickness of 14.9 mm, the Grand Cruise well draws attention in a prominent way. The entre-cornes are openworked which became the hallmark of the watches of Visconti.
In terms of design of the dial, both versions stand barely from the other. A nickel frame applied and satin or a rose Golden frame according to the version bypasses the GMT indication and the display of the great date.
The needles are pierced and equipped of lume. Numbers and indexes of the Visconti Grand Cruise are exclusively in lume.This gives them a plastic look and color of lume fits perfectly into the design of the dial. Spikes in two different Orange tones add color.
Wristwatches are operated by a mechanical movement with automatic winding, caliber VI-AC264-04. It is manufactured in Switzerland and is based on the caliber Soprod SOP9351, beats at 28,800 alternations at the time and has a power reserve of 42 hours.
The watches are completed with a waterproof leather strap; It is also possible to accompany the watch by a stainless steel bracelet.
