A Masterstroke of Horological Craftsmanship: Moritz Grossmann Presents Two Limited Edition Models Featuring Manually Crafted Gold Hands
The HAMATIC Vintage and the Benu TOURBILLON impress with ornate, exquisitely finished hands in 750/000 rose gold.
The ultimate in precision fused with consummate aesthetics – Glashütte’s watchmaking artistry never fails to charm. A maxim theMoritz Grossmannmanufactory lives by wholeheartedly, taking it to the pinnacle of performance by manufacturing the hands in-house. Moritz Grossmann is one of a small circle of global manufacturers that has mastered this time-consuming, traditional craft and is now breathing new life into it. Manufacturing this essential element – literally the central character for displaying the time – is considered an art in itself.
This is certainly true for exquisite gold hands, which will preserve their superior value over decades and centuries to come. Grossmann’s skilled specialists spend an entire day perfecting a single set of hands by hand, including the hand bushings. This time-consuming procedure commences by milling and eroding the blank from a gold plate, the fine gold dust is also collected in the process. The blank is then carefully ground all the way around using diamond files. Extraordinary skill, considerable patience and many years of experience are essential for shaping the contours and curves, and for smoothing and polishing all sides and surfaces down to the fractions of a millimetre.
The hand finishers at Moritz Grossmann are only satisfied once the characteristic, fine tip of the silhouette is perfect.
Moritz Grossmann now proudly unveils two new models, the HAMATIC VINTAGE and the TOURBILLON, both featuring handcrafted 750/000 rose gold hands for the first time. The exquisite dials of the two models come in a deep black and beautifully accentuate the fine gold hands. Framed by a rose gold case, the result is a supremely elegant ensemble and the perfect embodiment of Grossmann’s watchmaking artistry.
