Description

The GRECO-Geneva brand is expanding its “Les Temps Modernes” collection with this Racer Time RT-008 Diamond Sun chronograph. Although robust, this watch remains light and comfortable to wear thanks to its very soft silicone strap, sculpted in the design of a supercar tire. This watch is the perfect compromise between purists passionate about motorsport and those who know how to distinguish themselves with a certain elegance. Equipped with a Swiss Valjoux cal. Very neat 7750 with a fluorescent red oscillating weight, this distinctive timepiece with its strong identity will surprise even the strongest personalities in this world.

A titanic job, entirely hand-made 

768 diamonds and a week of modeling, chiseling and crimping work were necessary to make the framing of the RT-008 Diamond Sun!

For this, it was necessary to create the 768 stone. It’s a job that requires great manual strength and an extraordinary degree of patience!

A story of rocks 

Diamonds, the ultimate crystalline form of carbon, are formed in the Earth’s mantle around 150 kms beneath our feet during 1 to 3 billion years! Then they rise to the surface through magma, via volcanic vents.

The chronograph RT-008 Diamond Sun 

The arrangement of the stones around the nut recalls the shape of our sun … a sun made of titanium and diamonds.

Sparkly by nature, this watch is enhanced by the light of our planet’s star as its light passing through these hundreds of diamonds, refracting from their thousands of facets.
