FAMILY JEWELS FROM MILAN, ITALY
Grimoldi’s master craftsmanship reflected in iconic timepieces and statement jewellery designs Grimoldi Milano is a family business of creation in the true sense. Founded by patriarch Anselmo Grimoldi almost 50 years ago, Grimoldi Milano is now being run by the family’s second generation timepiece experts. The brand offers a superb combination of highly-precise Swiss watchmaking with Italian creativity and style that results in unique watches with a global cosmopolitan appeal, which are produced with a variety of colors, styles and materials. Now the chic designs from Grimoldi Milano are available in Malaysia, with a luxurious boutique, situated in the 6-star Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur, offering personalised service and attention.

Grimoldi Milano timepieces quickly became prized for their creative design. Their innovation and originality led to the production of two revolutionary designs, The Bramante and the Montforte. Both watches eventually became symbols of refinement and elegance. International celebrities and superstars from Kimora Lee and Russell Simmons to Paris and Nicky Hilton, 50 Cent and Mike Tyson to Robert Downey Jr and Lenny Kravitz, from Dustin Hoffman to Donatella Versace are all fervent fans of Grimoldi Milano timepieces and jewellery.

“Grimoldi designs possess such distinct personality that is exuded in their iconic designs. Their watches are easily recognizable and admired. We felt that stylish and fashion-savvy Malaysians would be interested in Grimoldi timepieces and jewelry for their statement qualities, and so far it has been well-received. Now with a stand-alone boutique we can offer our clientele an unparalleled level of service. They are able to appreciate the impressive designs in a private, indulgent space. It ensures the Grimoldi experience is one of notable decadence,” said Sofie Mahmood, Managing Director of First On the Block Sdn Bhd, Malaysia’s sole distributor of Grimoldi Milano as well VaBene, their affordable luxury label.

Anselmo, a master goldsmith, bought his first shop in 1964, after a ten-year apprenticeship under the master jewelry designer Romolo Grassi, which he started at the tender age of 14 years old. The shop, which sells and modifies antique timepieces, became Anselmo’s passion. To date there are three shops, all in the heart of Milan’s fabled shopping district, on Corso Venezia, at Via Manzoni, and in the Piazza Duomo.

The Grimoldi Milano dynasty continues with Roberto, the eldest son who studied at the ‘mecca’ of watch-making La Chaux-des-Fonds in Switzerland; Giorgio, the multi-talented designer who started his career in architecture and interior; and Cesare, the youngest son who is a ‘human encyclopaedia’ of watch history.
When Giorgio took the reins of the creative direction of Grimoldi Milano designs, he also ventured into fine jewellery since 2003, with the introduction of the iconic ‘Pace Amore’ (peace, love) ring collection. His creative spirit is a key influence in the brand’s creations of personality-packed objets d’art, combining the highest quality of craftsmanship with modern trends.

“I’ve always been the artistic member of the family, and in this respect I take after my father, Anselmo Grimoldi, who led me to appreciate beautiful things and cultivate a passion for watches, of which he himself has always been a keen collector, starting from the priceless Athmos JLC, the rarest and most exclusive collection of Panerai in the world, which amounts to just 3 pieces, as well other famous and unique timepieces,” said Giorgio.

Grimoldi Milano signature timepieces also include the ‘BO2’, a sporty, unisex design that has received overwhelming attention and available in six colors; ‘Commodoro’, the best-selling limited-edition, unisex watch; ‘Elia’, each face is hand-painted assuring a one-of-a-kind coveted watch; and the ‘San Babila’ collection in gold plated, silver steel and all-black versions. The watches can be customized with a wide array of straps in various colors and materials, ranging from silicone to stingray leather, crocodile and alligator leather to soft calf leather. Grimoldi timepieces range from RM1,500 up to RM8,800, not including the diamond-faced options.

Soon after, Grimoldi created the first edition of the VaBene (Italian for “all good”) collection of watches and introduced it during Milan Fashion Week in 2006. These colorful large watches were designed by Giorgio Grimoldi and they were so popular that they eventually became a separate brand. VaBene is the affordable luxury range offered by the Grimoldi brand which has already been a hit with Malaysian trendsetters since its launch in 2011. Grimoldi watches are an example of inspiration and mechanical dexterity, with their final assembly completed by hand to ensure the highest standards of precision and quality. Grimoldi Milano and VaBene can be found at the Grimoldi Milano boutique, Level 1 Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur.
