The Glowing de Grisogono Tondo by Night - The Life of the Party

One can always rely on de Grisigono to introduce a unique watch with the utmost of elegance and flair. The new Tondo by Night actually glows in the dark like a light stick at a concert.  Of course de Grisogono has not forgotten the "by day" scene.  By day the watches in fact are an almost blinding spectacle of bright color and dazzling magnificence. By night the photo-luminescent composite fiberglass watch case material takes on a glow. - video below  
This is actually the first time I have ever seen a watch company add photo-luminescence to the watch case and band, rather than just to the dial.  For me this is actually quite thrilling as I love when innovative watchmaking materials are used.

By day 60 precious gemstones such as purple amethysts, yellow sapphires, green tsavorites, pink sapphires, orange sapphires or white diamonds brighten the timepiece.  de Grisogono signature galuchat watch straps are dyed to perfectly match the gems, watch case and hands.  For this collection, de Grisigono has placed a gemset rotor on the dial side.  The rotor in motion reveals a tad of the de Grisigono automatic in-house movement.

The price on these delicious de Grisogono timepieces range from $17,500 (white) to $10,800 - colors to a $9,400 purple. 
de Grisigono is a watch brand that loves to party and these watches are perfect party possessions.
