News : Tribute watch to the first-ever woman pilot licensed

Tribute automatic GMT watch to "The Baroness" Elise de Laroche first-ever pilot licensed woman in March 8th 1910
March 8th, 2020.  
 
On this day of celebration of Women's Day, GRIGRI watches wanted to pay tribute to all these illustrious combatants who have fought body and soul to create a more equal and fairer society and whose efforts combined for decades have made great strides in this domain. For this, we wanted to modestly create a watch dedicated to all those who today still courageously pursue this fight in their daily lives. 
 
We named this watch “The Baroness” in honor of Elisa Deroche better known under the pseudonym “Baronne Raymonde de Laroche” because March 8, 1910, is also the date when she became the very first woman in the world to obtain an aviator pilot's license. She later became famous in numerous aviation meetings in Heliopolis, St Petersburg, Budapest, and Rouen. She was even praised by Tsar Nicholas II in person for his incredible flight skills, bravery and daring. 

This automatic watch has an elegant anthracite gray background that goes perfectly with white numbering and indexes. We designed it with a GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) complication to confirm its roots as a watch for commercial and military aviation pilots. This system allows frequent travelers to be able to locate themselves simultaneously in two different time zones, necessary to know on a single dial the local time and the time of another place in the world. In addition to its practicality, this complication adds natural sophistication to its aesthetic and will delight all adventurers of modern times. 
 
To perfect the whole, we have added handmade copper hands whose shape echoes the composition of the dashboards of vintage aircraft. 
 
Hoping that this little technological gem with a design so pleasantly retro and vintage will give you as much pleasure as the GRIGRI watches team had to create it.
