Precious wall

The Great Wall of China is an invaluable architectural treasure. Monumental in size and titanic in its power of fascination, this 6,000km long route is now a spectacular piece of watchmaking and jewelry created by the Graff artisans. The GyroGraff Great Wall of China is first and foremost a visual journey to the borders of preciousness, where rare know-how meets ancestral techniques. Hand-engraved in gold, the Great Wall stands out against an aventurine background like a starry sky. Each stone is meticulously patinated in ink while the paving stones are represented by a subtle invisible setting of baguette-cut diamonds. The forest is miniature-painted on a finely hammered gold base : a masterpiece just as dazzling as the mechanism beating inside. Powered by a manual-winding caliber, this one-of-a-kind timepiece offers a captivating sight with the rotation of its hand-engraved three-dimensional moon phases as well as the perpetual rotations of its two-axis tourbillon. A show in perpetual motion, surrounded – as one would expect from Graff – by a mosaic-style invisible setting composed of baguette-cut diamonds.
