The large for a ladies watch at 42.5mm wide case is in steel decorated with 64 diamonds, while four more gems inhabit the dial as hour markers. These are the four sapphires you see on the dial whose color match the blued steel hands and the lacing in the white crocodile strap. Inside the watch is a special Dubois Depraz automatic chronograph movement. The watch technically has a 60 minute chronograph, but isn't exactly something that is easy to read on the dial. The movement also has a big date complication. Pierre DeRoche does a really nice job with dial designs. Here the asymmetric display has a combo of satin and guilloche machine engraved surfaces. It makes for a nice look that remind of me a moon being eclipsed. Somewhere between haute horology and jewelry, the GrandCliff Milady watch certainly stands out on its own compared with the competition. Look for it soon.
