Graff’s Timely Introduction

  • Jill Newman

Diamond mogul Laurence Graff has unveiled his first full-fledged collection of timepieces inspired by none other than the diamond. In addition to dazzling diamond-encrusted women’s timepieces, there is an innovative collection of sporty and complicated men’s models featuring specially designed faceted gold cases that resemble a diamond cut. The architectural, contemporary case design is the foundation of the watch collection, which includes a tourbillon model and chronograph watch. The watches have diamond-tipped crowns, faceted sapphire crystal case backs, and a striking triangular-cut emerald is set at the 12-o’clock hour of every timepiece.
