de Grisogono pairs with Samsung to present its first smartwatch. Black diamonds, rose gold and galuchat are the signatures of the most stylish, glamorous, feminine connected watch around.

Designed by Fawaz Gruosi, this elegant watch marks the very first appearance of the round watch in the brand’s horological universe. Building on de Grisogono’s design heritage and Samsung Gear S2’s round shape, both creators produced the Gear S2 by de Grisogono: a jewellery smartwatch that enhances and pays homage to the most popular watchmaking shape.
The diamond-set gold bezel turns freely around the dial, partially hidden at 6 and 12 o’clock beneath two black DLC-coated arches set with the emblematic de Grisogono black diamonds. These fascinating perspective effects give the watch an entirely original structure. Diamond Like Carbon – a high-tech material known for its hardness and resistance – protects the bezel that houses all the smartwatch’s embedded technology. A bezel with an addictive touch that opens up the world of connectivity in the most intuitive possible manner.
de Grisogono has designed two digital watch dials – available in black or white – bearing the brand’s characteristic design codes, graced with scrolling motifs, subtle shades of rose gold and the brand emblem. One version features a two-hand dial with dual-time display complete with day/night indicator at 3 o’clock, day-date indications at 6 o’clock and small seconds at 9 o’clock. The other is a two-hand dial with a central seconds counter, a power-reserve indicator at 4 o’clock and a moon phase at 8 o’clock.
It opens up infinite staging possibilities as well as a library of instrumental features, including notifications and activity log. Entirely manufactured and assembled in the de Grisogono workshops, apart from its electronic module, the watch then undergoes a double quality control procedure, since both brands perform the tests relating to their respective fields of activity.
