Pierre DeRoche GrandCliff 1004 Royal Retro

For the 10th Anniversary of the GrandCliff Royal Retro, Pierre DeRoche plunges deep into the Lac de Joux

Reading Time: 2 minutes

More than ever in harmony with the landscape of the Vallée de Joux, the birthplace of watchmaking savoir-faire, the GRANDCLIFF 1004 ROYAL RETRO offers a new take on the iconic Pierre DeRoche modular movement.

For the first time with a dial, the exclusive Dubois Dépraz calibre boasts a new case whose chic and sporty design further enhances the relay of retrograde second hands. Even underwater, since the GrandCliff 1004 Royal Retro is water-resistant to 100 metres!

10 for Royal Retro’s milestone birthday. 04 for the number of versions of the revolutionary mechanism… 1004, above all, for the altitude of the Lac de Joux. Designed by Octavio Garcia, the GrandCliff 1004 Royal Retro is part of the brand’s DNA, drawing inspiration from the beating heart of the Vallée de Joux. The Pierre DeRoche signature complication has been reinvented, maintaining the highest standards of watchmaking excellence, while positioning this new design at a more accessible ‘altitude’.

Its powerful hands slice through time like a rower or diver through water. The chunky crown protectors evoke the mountains and the harsh climate…

This watch emerges unquestionably from the waters of the Vallée de Joux.
