Graff GraffStar Slim Eclipse

Graff was founded in 1960 and quickly built a strong reputation for quality and for being a renowned diamond jeweler. With such a strong foundation created for the brand, they launched a watch division in 2008 with timepieces inspired by diamonds and crafted with precious metals. The GraffStar collection was introduced in 2013 and then most recently the Slim Eclipse, crafted in titanium with a breathtaking black diamond-like carbon coating.

This latest timepiece is a reflection of the brand design brilliance, a exquisite matte black case, dial and facetted diamond inspired bezel and crown. Elegance of the watch is further enhanced by the polished, facetted and applied indexes, the sword-shaped hour and minute hands. Think total black out and then a very specifically placed signature diamond on the tip of the crown that is also black. The ultra-thin 43mm by 6.35mm case is designed with automatic movement, 3.2mm thick, that is of course developed and produced for Graff by Timeless Manufacture in Switzerland. Power reserve is 32 hours strong, with a 30 meter water resistance. They paired the striking timepiece with a black alligator strap that really finishes off the elegance and has you ready to step out for the evening or simply have the best dressed arm for any occasion.

The weight of this Graff GraffStar Slim Eclipse is only 39 grams and while thin and quite delicate in design it is large on the wrist. As the favorite timepiece of the founder it is not surprising that the watch has taken the hearts of the world as well. The amazing metal that the case is designed with is scratch resistance and also lightweight and strong. Black as the night, the timepiece captures the stealth-like feeling the manufacturing crafted, while at the same time allows for an exclusive air that really is the heart of this watch.

The GraffStar Slim Eclipse embraces the very foundation of horological manufacturing with such passion and refinement. The brand has taken the collection to a new level of luxury with such a sophisticated watch and still the distinctive brand DNA. The future looks bright for Graff even though this piece is so dark, because basic black certainly is a winner for this timepiece. If you want a watch that is trendy but elegant, can go from day to night, look good with jeans or black tie, then look no further, the noir is the perfect choice.
