The finely drawn guilloche in the centre of the dial is surrounded by a wide outer ring. The hours are marked by colour-coordinating indices in silver. The small second at 6 o’clock also shimmers in silver. The lance-shaped hands filled with white Hy-Ceram and flat polished match the indices. In darkness, the minute scale with luminescent Superluminova dots in blue indicates the time. The stainless steel case keeps the face of the watch enclosed. The blue, hand-sewn alligator wristband with the stainless steel buckle emphasises the sporty note of the watch and at the same time forms an interesting contrast.

The Moritz Grossmann Limited Edition by Chrono24 is characterised by its particularly slim, flat case. In the highly finished movement, polished gold chatons, wide Glashütte stripes, the finished wheel train with polished bevels and hand-tempered screws in brown-violet can be admired through the glass back on the rear of the watch. All the elements combined are what give the watch its particularly sophisticated appearance.

The Moritz Grossmann brand manufactures timepieces to the highest standard of craftsmanship under the motto “Schönstes deutsches Handwerk”. The Moritz Grossmann Limited Edition by Chrono24 is issued with the calibre 102.1 in a High Artistic finish in a limited edition of 24 watches.

ATUM High Art Christmas – Christmas elegance in gold and red

Schönstes deutsches Handwerk

Just in time for Christmas, the independent Glashütte watch manufacturer Moritz Grossmann shows its most glamorous side. With the ATUM High Art Christmas, the manufactory dedicates its own masterpiece to the most beautiful time of the year, embodying the high art of watchmaking to perfection. Warm rose gold, ‘Christmassy’ red and a high-artistic finish lend the special model of the ATUM line its festive elegant charisma.

The noble one-off piece is not only a homage to Christmas, but also a timelessly stylish eye-catcher that makes every day something special. The colour red has symbolic power; it stands for love, passion, fire and radiates pure joie de vivre – just like the ATUM High Art Christmas.

The case in 750/000 rose gold gives the Christmas red dial its elegant setting. The indexes, also in rose gold, harmonise with it. The handcrafted lance-shaped hands are tempered by hand over an open flame in brown and are given their unique three-dimensional shape by manual chamfering. The red bracelet reinforces the effective colour concept. The Grossmann manual winding mechanism with pusher ensures comfortable handling and enables a perfected pointer setting mechanism.

The calibre 100.1 in the high-artistic finish makes the watch a real gem, because all parts are polished, chamfered and ground by hand in elaborate detail work. The sapphire crystal back on the back of the watch reveals the fine mechanical components of the ATUM High Art Christmas – a sparkling ensemble, not only during the Christmas season.

With the ATUM High Art Christmas, Moritz Grossmann once again demonstrates an extraordinary flair and craftsmanship for timepieces that represent „Schönstes deutsches Handwerk“ – meaning the most beautiful German craftsmanship – in an incomparable way.
The ATUM High Art Christmas comes with the calibre 100.1 in a High Artistic finish in the single copy 1 of 1.

TEFNUT Sleeping Beauty Gold – golden shimmer in rosé

chönstes deutsches Handwerk

On the occasion of its tenth anniversary the Moritz Grossmann manufactory pre-sents the TEFNUT Sleeping Beauty Gold. This special jewellery watch combines exceptional design with sophisticated construction and delights with its inner and outer beauty. A golden polish in rosé makes the watch glow from all angles. On the inside, the precise mechanics meet the highest standards in both form and functionality.

Designed by Michael Koh, painter, sculptor and one of Singapore’s leading jewel-lery designers, the delicate TEFNUT Sleeping Beauty Gold draws you into the mysterious world of the moon. The radiant guilloche in rosé mother-of-pearl sur-rounds the golden, finely drawn moon and invites you to dream – the Beauty sleeps in the night; the moon watches over the hours gently and wisely. The Ro-man numerals are black harmonise with the asymmetrical guilloché pattern and the case made from rosé gold, which rises gently from the crown to the 9 o’clock side. A ring of white brilliant-cut diamonds traces this image by widening to the side as well, creating a radiant frame for the work of art. Like the crown, the spring bars float freely on one side and are decorated with red gemstone cabu-chons. The calibre 102.0 in artistic hand finish also lets the watch shine from the inside.

During his creative period in the 19th century, Moritz Grossmann manufactured elegant pocket watches for ladies from precious metals and equipped them with high-quality movements. Christine Hutter, founder and managing director of the Grossmann Uhren manufactory, continues this high standard in the present day. The TEFNUT Sleeping Beauty Gold combines sophisticated construction with graceful design.

The Moritz Grossmann brand manufactures timepieces to the highest standard of craftsmanship under the motto ‘Schönstes deutsches Handwerk’ – ‘the most beau-tiful German craftsmanship’. The TEFNUT Sleeping Beauty Gold is a one-off piece and is presented with the calibre 102.0 in the edition 1 of 1. It is handmade in Glashütte.

ATUM Pure Skull Extreme – unconventional beauty

Schönstes deutsches Handwerk

For Moritz Grossmann, the hour of its tenth anniversary strikes! A good reason to celebrate and an ideal time for the independent Glashütte watch manufactory to extend its ATUM line. The ATUM Pure Skull is a unique piece created by the master workshop that will delight any bold watch enthusiasts with its extravagant design.

The skull-shaped dial plays with a motif that has held symbolic power for centuries. From antiquity to modernity, it has been used in countless works of art as a symbol of the circle of life. Today the skull is far more than a cult object. It transcends from a symbol of transience to a celebration of life.

The Moritz Grossmann manufactory has designed the ATUM Pure Skull Extreme with characteristic elegance and subtle design language: the blackened stainless steel case extends to frame the outline of the skull. The handcrafted burnished skull forms the central focal point of the dial. The ATUM Pure Skull Extreme is encircled by a wide and striking chapter ring with Arabic numerals and indexes. The hands are handmade from stainless steel and filled with brown HyCeram filling which is flat polished to match the skull. The brown calfskin strap harmonises with the face of the watch. The Pure Classic finish calibre 201.1 with its impressive mechanics is being revealed on the back of the case.

The ATUM Pure Skull Extreme is an excellent example of how Moritz Grossmann combines the art of watchmaking with contemporary design. The result is “Schönstes deutsches Handwerk” meaning ‘the most beautiful German craftsmanship’: timepieces made to the highest standards of craftsmanship that move people in the present and are made for eternity.

The ATUM Pure Skull Extreme is offered with the calibre 201.1 in Pure Classic finish as a single edition 1 of 1.

ATUM Pure Santa Claus – Santa Claus is coming to Glashütte

Schönstes deutsches Handwerk

The independent Glashütte manufactory Grossmann Uhren proves that Christmas cheer and refined elegance work together in the most beautiful, elegant way. To mark its 10th anniversary, the Glashütte watch specialists present the unique ATUM Pure Santa Claus.

The ATUM Pure Santa Claus combines the joy of exceptional design with the frosty winter landscape of the Ore Mountains, which runs through Glashütte, Moritz Grossmann’s home. The stainless steel dial features cut-outs with Santa Claus on his sleigh drawn by the beloved reindeer, Rudolph. The cold, starry night scene is sprinkled with snow-covered fir trees and punctuated by a beautiful crescent moon.

The hands of the ATUM Pure Santa Claus are handcrafted from stainless steel, flat polished and filled with red HyCeram. These Christmas colours correspond to the eight indices that glow silver and red on the wide outer ring of the dial. Completing this design is a pine green leather strap.

In the Ore Mountains and Glashütte, Christmas has always played an important role in everyone’s lives. With its romantic winter landscape and richly decorated, brightly lit houses, it is a joy to behold the bright lights and Christmas decorations, which include the Christmas pyramid, candle arches, angels and miners, nutcrackers and incense smokers, which were once invented and made by hand in traditional woodworking workshops.

The movement is the calibre 201.1 in a pure classic finish. The Moritz Grossmann brand manufactures timepieces to the highest standard of craftsmanship. Under the heading ‘Schönstes deutsches Handwerk’, traditional precision mechanics are combined with state-of-the-art construction and finishing methods. The ATUM Pure Santa Claus is offered as a single edition 1 of 1.

The BENU 37 Butterfly – a unique piece for happy moments

Schönstes deutsches Handwerk

With the BENU 37 Butterfly the Moritz Grossmann watch manufacture has captured a small piece of sheer happiness on its tenth anniversary. A swarm of colourful butterflies flutter across the dial of the watch, playfully reminding us of the preciousness of every moment.

This special one-off piece of the BENU line has been created in collaboration with artist Harriet Oberlaender. Born in Zwickau, she has lived and worked on the Cote d’Azur for more than 20 years and has inspired an international audience with numerous exhibitions in France and Germany. Her expressive, energetic works are characterised by the sense of freedom and the search for true happiness. Harriet Oberlaender’s visual language leads straight to the heart. The butterfly – one of the key designs of her works – is a symbol of the human soul that wants to unfold and fly. The design of the BENU 37 Butterfly was particularly close to the artist’s heart: she wants every glance at the watch not only to reveal the time, but also to remind people of the happiness of a fleeting moment.

The white dial made from grand feu enamel is the perfect ‘canvas’ for the colourful butterfly motif, which is applied by hand with a delicate stroke. The Grossmann hands, handmade from steel and tempered brown over flame, form an exciting contrast to the playful motif with their straight lines. The luxurious frame is a 750/000 rosé gold case with a slimline 37 mm diameter. The sapphire crystal glass on the back of the watch reveals the mechanically sophisticated inner workings and features the artist’s signature.

With this Harriet Oberlaender artist watch, the independent Glashütte manufactory once again demonstrates its mastery of craftsmanship and beautifully unique aesthetics. Within just ten years, the company has revived the legacy of the great watch pioneer Moritz Grossmann and brought traditional craftsmanship of the highest standard into the modern era. This has resulted in ‘Schönstes deutsches Handwerk’ meaning ‘the most beautiful German craftsmanship’. From the case to the hands, complete works of art are created in the Grossmann manufacture revealing more than just the exact time.

The special model BENU 37 Butterfly is offered with the calibre 102.1 as a single edition 1 of 1.

The BENU Tourbillon Brown – refined precision

Schönstes deutsches Handwerk

Christine Hutter established Grossmann Uhren in Glashütte – a town in the German state of Saxony – in November 2008. The manufactory produces precise timepieces to the very highest standards of skill with classic yet contemporary design. The BENU Tourbillon Brown boasts a number of unique features which demonstrate the best of Moritz Grossmann’s famed craftsmanship.

As part of Mortiz Grossmann’s 10th anniversary collection, this one-off piece has a dark brown dial which blends seamlessly with the strap. At the heart of the BENU Tourbillon Brown is an optimised calibre 103.0 movement, hallmarked by a flying three-minute tourbillon with a screw-secured driving wheel and a V-shaped cage, an asymmetric-arm lever escapement with a counterweight and lever banking pin, and the characteristic Grossmann balance with a suspended balance spring and regulation via poising screws in the balance-wheel rim.

The dark, chocolate brown dial exudes precision reminiscent of an aircraft cockpit. Two subsidiary dials display the seconds and hours directly and exactly. In the lower quarter, where the 6 o’clock mark usually appears, the tourbillon aperture impinges on the time span from 25 to 35 minutes. During this ten-minute segment, an extension of the minute hand sweeps a scale opposite, allowing the time to be read precisely in an original, aesthetically appealing fashion.

The timepiece uses Grossmann’s manual winding with a pusher. When the crown is pulled out to set the watch, it immediately returns to its home position. The movement is stopped and the crown can now be turned to set the hands instead of winding the watch. The stop mechanism is triggered at the same time. The stop-seconds function can operate at any time thanks to an elaborate cage design with just two triangular posts. To halt the balance, the stop device moves past the cage’s triangular frame posts when the post is aligned with the stop lever. It does this with the aid of an elastic brush made from human hair, which provides a gentle solution for the stop mechanism which also offers long-term reliability. Pressing the pusher restarts the watch.

The Moritz Grossmann brand manufactures timepieces to the highest standard of craftsmanship. Under the motto “Schönstes deutsches Handwerk”, traditional precision mechanics are combined with state-of-the-art construction and finishing technologies.

Schönstes deutsches Handwerk

To mark Moritz Grossmann’s tenth anniversary in November, the independent watchmaker from Glashütte presents its seventeenth special model, the BENU Power Reserve SGD 1953. This special edition timepiece emphasises the regional roots of the manufactory. The name ‘SGD 1953’ is often used by fans and is short for SG Dynamo Dresden football club and its founding year.

Since 2017 the Moritz Grossmann manufactory has been involved in sports through a cooperation with SG Dynamo Dresden.

The watch is fully wound if the black part of the bar appears on the dial. As the spring runs out of tension, the bar becomes more and more ‘Dynamo’ yellow. The characteristic ‘D’ of the SG Dynamo Dresden logo decorates the centre of the black dial in discreet dark grey.

The Moritz Grossmann brand manufactures timepieces to the highest standard of craftsmanship under the motto ‘Schönstes deutsches Handwerk’ – ‘The most beautiful German craftsmanship’. The BENU Power Reserve SGD 1953 is offered with the calibre 100.2 in artistic hand finish as a single edition 02 of 11, of a limited edition 11/ 11.

To mark this special occasion the independent watchmaker from Glashütte is pleased to reveal its eleventh special model, the ATUM Backpage Platinum.

The wafer-thin hands annealed in brown, solid silver dial is adorned with Fine Arabic numerals, giving the face of the watch its special elegance. Thanks to their fineness, they are reminiscent of the precision instruments produced by Moritz Grossmann in the 19th century. Craftsmanship meets innovative mechanics with the bar-shaped opening under the Moritz Grossmann logo, revealing a power reserve indicator. When the movement is fully wound, it is completely white and shows an increasing amount of red as the watch runs out. Grossmann’s manual winding with pusher provides a perfected hand setting mechanism.

During his lifetime, Moritz Grossmann inspired with his work in the political and social spheres. The visionary was a widely respected author who published in various languages. His trailblazing technique is still reflected in the watches produced by the Grossmann company today. The Moritz Grossmann brand manufactures timepieces to the highest standard of craftsmanship under the motto “Schönstes deutsches Handwerk” – “the most beautiful German craftsmanship. The BENU Power Reserve Anniversary is offered with the calibre 100.2 in a High-Artistic Finish as a single edition 1 of 1.

ATUM Backpage Rose Gold - a showcase for the art of Grossmann watchmaking

Schönstes deutsches Handwerk

The independent Glashütte watchmaker Moritz Grossmann will celebrate its tenth anniversary in November. With its eighth special model, the ATUM Backpage in rose gold, the company offers a showcase for the beauty of Grossmann’s watchmaking art. With the exception of the fine, fully circumferential minute scale, the dial side is kept completely free. Thus all the details of the beautiful spectacle that is the movement can be admired even while reading the time.

On the ATUM Backpage Rose Gold, the watchmakers from Grossmann have shifted the calibre 107.0, mirrored in a High-Artistic Finish, to the dial side. Thanks to an unusually large dial cut-out, the characteristic movement details such as Grossmann’s balance wheel, hand-engraved balance cock and three band snailing on the ratchet wheel can be seen on the wrist. Wide Glashütte stripes are applied to both sides of the movement. The Moritz Grossmann logo is engraved by hand on the dial side. Brown hands tempered in the manufactory and brown-violet screws complete the elegant and warm-toned colour spectrum of this extraordinary watch.

On the back of the movement, the winding, hand setting and second mechanisms are openly integrated into the wheel bridge and can thus be observed for the first time in their full functionality. Almost all of its parts are mirrored in order to guarantee their function even when mounted in the opposite position while ensuring the position of the lever remains unchanged.

The Moritz Grossmann brand manufactures timepieces to the highest standard of craftsmanship under the motto “Schönstes deutsches Handwerk”. The ATUM Backpage Rose Gold is offered with the calibre 107.0 in a High-Artistic Finish as a single edition 1 of 1.

Schönstes deutsches Handwerk

Moritz Grossmann, the independent from watchmaker Glashütte, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month. To mark the occasion, the company presents its 7th one-off piece, the ATUM Pure M Orange.

Even in the 19th century, Moritz Grossmann experimented with the finish of his pieces, creating a range a styles to suit all tastes. Today, the ATUM Pure M Orange pays homage with nickel silver plates which have been glass bead-blasted to create a matte finish. The highly sensitive surface demands maximum precision and skill from the watchmaker. White sapphires, typical of Moritz Grossmann are pressed directly into the plate secured by flat polished steel screws.

With a blackened stainless steel case in combination with an orange alligator strap, the ATUM Pure M Orange has a sporty touch with surprises beneath. The dial is crafted from delicate filigree steel, offering an eye-catching view into the movement. The unique lance-shaped hands match the indexes with orange HyCeram, matching the dial’s eight orange indexes with black Arabic numerals to mark the hours. At 6 o’clock, the small second shimmers in silver thanks to the evenly applied cut.

The Moritz Grossmann brand manufactures timepieces to the highest standard of craftsmanship under the motto “Schönstes deutsches Handwerk”. The ATUM Pure M Orange is offered with the calibre 201.1 in a pure classic finish as a single edition 1 of 1.

The TEFNUT 36 Enamel – the finest classic made of white enamel

Schönstes deutsches Handwerk

To mark Moritz Grossmann’s tenth anniversary this November the independent watchmaker from Glashütte presents its sixth special model, the TEFNUT 36 Enamel from the TEFNUT line. The white enamel dial with delicate black Roman numerals of the TEFNUT 36 Enamel is framed by a white gold case. The sophisticated design of the watch resembles the elegant pocket watches Moritz Grossmann used to design and manufacture 150 years ago.

The Roman numerals with their contemporary serifs contrast the rich white enamel dial. Delicate black index points indicate the minutes. The small second at 7 o’clock is a stunning eye-catcher. The handcrafted brown-violet hands complete the classic look of this exquisite yet understated watch. The narrow bezel makes the watch look larger than its 36 mm diameter suggests.

With its calibre 102.0, the TEFNUT 36 Enamel has special features such as the cut of the three-fifths plate, the adjusting screw on the stepped balance cock and the brown-violet tempered screws. Schönstes deutsches Handwerk can also be observed in the highly hand finished movement; the polished chamfers on the balance, the pallet cock and the balance cock.

The Moritz Grossmann brand manufactures timepieces to the highest standard of craftsmanship under the motto “Schönstes deutsches Handwerk”- “The most beautiful German craftsmanship“. The TEFNUT 36 Enamel is offered with the calibre 102.0 in artistic hand finish as a single edition 1 of 1.

Christine Hutter at the Horology Forum of Dubai Watch Week

On 11 and 12 September, the first International Horology Forum of Dubai Watch Week took place at Christie’s King Street headquarters in London and Moritz Grossmann CEO Christine Hutter took part. The audience consisted of watchmakers, authors, historians, collectors, industry experts and representatives of a wide range of watch brands, primarily independent companies. Journalists from all over the world travelled to London to attend the event.

The Horology Forum has become an integral component of Dubai Watch Week and offers a platform for discussions on a wide range of topics within the watch industry. John Reardon, Head of Watches at Christie’s International, describes the event as ‘the leading global platform for an unbiased dialogue on all aspects of the watch industry’.

Christine Hutter’s message was that design and watchmaking are reflected in the finest handcrafted watches, and that the two harmonise with one another and are mutually dependent upon one another.

Moritz Grossmann combines this approach under the tagline “Schönstes deutsches Handwerk” meaning the most beautiful German craftsmanship. The manufactory produces timepieces in a classic design and to the highest standard of craftsmanship.

Schönstes deutsches Handwerk - We celebrate 10 years of Moritz Grossmann

In 2018, the anniversary year, we will review the first ten years of the revived Moritz Grossmann brand for you: ten years – ten reviews, the Moritz Grossmann miniseries.

Part 6 – 2013

Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio from Argentina is elected Pope and adopts the papal name Francis +++ First publications by whistleblower Edward Snowden trigger NSA affair +++ Floods in Central Europe with severe flooding in seven countries +++

Emergency alert in Dresden, Glashütte Uferstraße 1 remains dry +++ Completion of outdoor facilities, ground floor and showroom +++ Official inauguration of the new manufactory with Prime Minister Tillich +++ Inauguration of the Moritz Grossmann Bridge between the town centre and Uferstraße +++ Presentation of new watches: BENU Power Reserve, BENU Tourbillon, ATUM +++ Goldene Unruh 2013 3rd place for BENU in platinum

The young manufactory attracts notice, Moritz Grossmann is once again a topic of conversation in Glashütte and on the international watch scene. The new building on Uferstraße 1 is officially inaugurated with great media attention and in the presence of the then Prime Minister of the Free State of Saxony, Stanislaw Tillich. The story of the revival of the name Moritz Grossmann fascinates and attracts great media interest. Christine Hutter, the Mistress of Time (FAZ), tells this story over and again. As the only woman at the head of an independent watch manufactory, she causes a sensation in the industry and awareness of the new brand grows. The manufactory building embodies the passion and seriousness of this undertaking. And the watches speak for themselves: the BENU, which is sold out after a short time, is followed by the second model line ATUM, the BENU Power Reserve and the BENU Tourbillon. Grossmann’s watchmakers present two patentable developments: the stop-seconds mechanism with brush made from hair and the double minute display. 2013 is the year of knowledge. In just five years, the manufactory has proven that it is a presence to be taken seriously.

The TEFNUT Pure High Art – Power in yellow and black

Schönstes deutsches Handwerk

To mark Moritz Grossman’s tenth anniversary the independent watchmaker from Glashütte presents its fifth special model, the TEFNUT Pure High Art from the TEFNUT line. TEFNUT Pure High Art is a one-off piece that combines a chic contrasting canary yellow dial with a blackened stainless steel case.

In addition to its striking colour combination, the watch has an individual sporty character underlined by the artistically, hand-finished calibre 102.1 set in a steel case. The dominance of the bright yellow dial contrasts with the blackened case and the black leather wristband. On the dial, the Rhodium plated indexes and hands are polished for a high-gloss finish.

The TEFNUT model line is characterised by its particularly slim, flat case. Inside, the hand finished movement, polished gold chatons, wide Glashütte stripes, wheel train with polished bevels and hand-tempered screws in brown-violet can be admired through the crystal glass back of the watch. When combined, all these elements provide the calibre 102.1 its exquisite appearance.

The Moritz Grossmann brand manufactures timepieces to the highest standard of craftsmanship under the tagline “Schönstes deutsches Handwerk” – “The most beautiful German craftsmanship.” The TEFNUT Pure High Art is offered with the calibre 102.1 in high artistic hand finish as a single edition 1 of 1.

The ATUM White Brown - a classic, understated design in white and brown

Schönstes deutsches Handwerk

As part of their 10th anniversary celebrations, independent German watchmaker, Moritz Grossmann are delighted to present their forth unique piece, the ATUM White Brown. The model combines classic design elements in white and brown with a stainless steel case and an artistic, hand-finished movement.

A balanced colour scheme and the calibre 100.1 in a high-artistic finish sets this watch apart from the crowd. The ATUM White Brown also reflects a feature of the present-day manufactory – the striking use of steel annealed in brown. Brown markers and hands decorate the bright white dial. A brown alligator leather strap and an understated steel case round off the subtle yet striking look. Inside the movement, the screws in their gold chatons, the regulating nut and the back bushing are also annealed in brown by hand.

Moritz Grossmann was a distinguished and elegant character, traits shared by the ATUM White Brown – with its classic lines and rich colours. As well as being a master horologist, Moritz Grossmann was a great philanthropist who helped to make Glashütte a livelier, more vibrant place. Grossmann’s intellectual curiosity led him to become involved in a large number of associations and institutions. He supported student watchmakers, for example, by giving them free language tuition in the evenings.

The Moritz Grossmann brand manufactures timepieces to the highest standards of craftsmanship under the tagline “Schönstes deutsches Handwerk” – “The most beautiful German craftsmanship”. The ATUM White Brown is offered with the calibre 100.1 in an artistic hand finish as a single edition 1 of 1.

ATUM Date All Blue – the unique ATUM will brighten up your Monday

Schönstes deutsches Handwerk

As part of their 10th anniversary, independent Glashütte watchmaker Moritz Grossmann are presenting their third unique piece, the ATUM Date All Blue.

As with all Moritz Grossmann watches, the ATUM Date All Blue combines clear design with first-rate technology. Issued as a one-off as a variant on the ATUM Date, the watch is a fine example of integrated date setting technology alongside beautiful craftsmanship. In addition to the accurate jumping date display, the date can be corrected forwards and backwards at any time, up to less than one second before and after midnight. A separate locking crown at “10 o’clock” allows the date to be set by turning in both directions, forwards and backwards, without having to stop the movement.

With the ATUM Date All Blue, the silver dial harmonises with the blue hands and a blue date window. Continuing the theme, the watch uses blued steel screws, a rare variation on the otherwise predominantly brown-violet annealed screws at Grossmann.

The visionary and inventor Moritz Grossmann loved to study how watchmaking varied from area to area, exploring Hamburg, Munich, La Chaux-de-Fonds, England, France, Denmark, and Sweden to acquire the world’s horological know-how. His determination to broaden his knowledge was particularly unusual for his time, as it was very difficult to journey across the continent, with walking or travelling on horseback being the only options. In addition to his technical skills, he brought a strong sense of beauty and aesthetics to his work to create a design of simple, fine classicism.

Under the tagline “Schönstes deutsches Handwerk”, the Moritz Grossmann brand manufactures timepieces to the highest standard of craftsmanship. The ATUM Date all Blue is offered with the calibre 100.3 in the high-artistic finish as a blue single edition 1 of 1.

ATUM 'Schaffo' – a work of art by two masters

Schönstes deutsches Hanwerk

Moritz Grossmann, the independent Glashütte watchmaker, will celebrate its 10th anniversary next month. As part of the celebration, the company will present The ATUM ‘Schaffo’ skeleton, a one-off piece created in collaboration with iconic Swiss watchmaker and designer, Christophe Schaffo.

Moritz Grossmann formulated the ideal of “designing a simple but mechanically perfect watch” in the 19th century. With the ATUM ‘Schaffo’, the functionality and beauty of the mechanism are apparent at first sight. The dial consists of an elegant, narrow ribbon of rhodium-plated German silver featuring the minute markers, revealing the exquisitely finished movement, where each component has been chamfered, chased and engraved by hand. Every movement of the dial train, balance wheel and other parts of the mechanism demonstrates the artistry and technique that went into making this timepiece. Blackened stainless steel is used for the case, winding crown and pusher which – along with the black alligator leather strap – form a stunning contrast to the dial. Schaffo’s artistic creativity, technique and craftsmanship are outstanding and renowned around the world. He painstakingly stamped, cut and milled to minimise the material used for the calibre 100.5 in the ATUM ‘Schaffo’. The result is a masterpiece of skeletonisation.

The Moritz Grossmann brand manufactures timepieces to the highest standard of craftsmanship under the tagline “Schönstes deutsches Handwerk”. The ATUM ‘Schaffo’ brings together the craftsmanship of two masters – the Swiss artist Christophe Schaffo and the German watchmaking pioneer Moritz Grossmann. The one-off watch includes the name C. Schaffo on the ratched wheel and is a single edition 1 of 1.

Schönstes deutsches Handwerk

Moritz Grossmann, the proudly independent German watchmaker, is delighted to celebrate its 10th anniversary next month. To mark this special occasion, the company will present a one-off piece from the BENU line, The BENU Blue Steel.
A harmonious combination of a cool stainless steel case with a white grand-feu enamel dial and blue accents. The BENU Blue Steel is offered with the calibre 100.1 in the high-artistic finish as a blue single edition 1 of 1.

The BENU Blue Steel showcases Moritz Grossmann’s finest watchmaking features and 19th-century craftsmanship. In a feature different to other BENU models, the hands on the ‘BENU Blue Steel‘ light up in a beautiful deep blue. This harmonises with the blue Arabic numerals and minute markers, as well as with elements inside the movement: the screws, the regulating nut and the back bushing are all also annealed in blue.

During his lifetime (1826-1885), Moritz Grossmann produced pocket watches, pendulum clocks and measuring instruments that became renowned for their beauty and accuracy. One of his trademarks were the very fine hands that enabled precise time reading on the watches and particular accuracy with the measuring instruments. Today, all hands on Moritz Grossmann watches are filed, ground and polished by hand and then annealed in colour over an open flame in the unchanged, historic method.

Moritz Grossmann‘s Glashütte manufactory employs the highest standard German craftsmanship combined with modern production methods; an ongoing homage to the man who gave the company its name. Today, the company continues to create beautiful watches under the slogan “Schönstes deutsches Handwerk”.

Watch this space, Moritz Grossmann are working on something special. Details on how to purchase the BENU Blue Steel are coming next month.

Version:
The BENU Blue Steel is offered as blue single edition 1 of 1, out of a limited edition 18/18 2018.

Time for beautiful fingernails

Behind the watch – TEFNUT Twist

Winding a watch with freshly painted fingernails? Imagine visiting an elegant gala or another special occasion with freshly manicured nails, wouldn’t it be useful to have something to help in winding a watch? Many women have been hoping for an alternative to the conventional crown winder for a long time. The team from Grossmann Uhren GmbH have come up with a way that allows women to easily wind up a watch with freshly painted fingernails or gloves. But first things first.

It all started with an in-house competition for ideas after management heard about a Moritz Grossmann customer being in a similar situation. A female colleague came up with the winning idea in the end. Her solution was to use the watch strap to operate the rotary mechanism of the TEFNUT Twist. This idea was put into action by the Moritz Grossmann designers. Just a few turns of the strap attached at the number 6 position in the watch case is all it takes to wind up the TEFNUT Twist fully. A robust alternative to the conventional crown winder, especially advantageous for smaller watches – and leaves beautiful fingernails intact.

The solution won the colleague an in-house prize and Moritz Grossmann the Eve’s Watch Award – a prestigious accolade from the leading watch magazine for women in the UK.

Grand Prix d`Horlogerie des Genéve 2018

Moritz Grossman in the 2018 pre-selection with the TEFNUT Twist Classic

The jury of the 18th Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genéve (GPHG) has published the official list of the 72 short-listed watches of 2018. The watches are divided into 12 categories. They compete for one of the 16 coveted prizes awarded to the best watch creations of the year, including the prestigious Aiguielle d’Or Grand Prix. The winners will be announced on 9 November 2018 as part of the 18th GPHG award ceremony in Geneva. The short-list will be on display ahead of the ceremony at a roadshow in Venice, Hong Kong and Singapore.

The TEFNUT Twist Classic by Moritz Grossmann, a model variant of the TEFNUT Twist, is short-listed in the ladies’ watch category. With the TEFNUT Twist Classic, Grossmann’s strap winding mechanism allows the watch to be wound by turning the strap attachment positioned at 6 o’clock on the watch case. A central guilloche forms a harmonious symmetry with the gently raised hour ring with its circularly aligned numerals, all framed by a ring of white diamonds. In addition, the small second at 7 o’clock forms striking counterpoint. Elegant Arabic numerals complete the image.

About the GPHG:

The Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève was founded in 2001 and has been organised by the “Fondation du Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève”, a specially created foundation, since 2011. It is an annual tribute to the quality of contemporary watchmaking.

The fateful year of 1923 – Where there’s a will, there’s a way

Despite hyperinflation, expansion of the German Watchmaking School secured

1923 was the year of hyperinflation. To pay for a single loaf of bread, people in Germany carried their money in backpacks to the baker. Ingenuity was therefore needed for investment activities. A workaround was used across the nation, as well as in Glashütte, the so-called Notgeld, or emergency money.

In such uncertain times, it gave the possibility of securing financing for the long-planned expansion of the German Watchmaking School in Glashütte. The Stadtgirokasse, or city clearing bank, in Glashütte had already given a guarantee for the financing of the planned expansion. However, because of hyperinflation and the associated devaluation of money, a further cash injection was called for. Mayor Opitz took the initiative on 15 September 1923. In a fiery speech at the inauguration of the extension building, his masterful use of rhetoric and great sense of humour charmed the guests gathered in Glashütte to acquire the notes printed especially for this purpose.

Written on the back of the Notgeldare the words ‘Where there’s a will, there’s a way’. Mayor Opitz won the hearts of his audience. With the aid of the Notgeld, he succeeded in securing the additional funding needs. By acquiring the Notgeldand not redeeming it later, he was able to cover the construction costs for the extension.

In 1878, the German Watchmaking School was founded in Glashütte thanks to the initiative of the mastermind and watch pioneer Carl Moritz Grossmann – a novelty for the art of German watchmaking at the time. 45 years later – the watchmaking school had long since become an institution with worldwide appeal – the building required an extension to cater to the growing demand for students from all over the world.

The former School of Watchmaking now houses the German Watch Museum Glashütte. The extension serves as an impressive entrance to the building. Museum Director Reinhard Reichel welcomes the continuing interest in the history of German watchmaking. The special ‘More than theory and practice. German School of Watchmaking Glashütte 1878—1951” exhibition, which runs until 6 January 2019, reflects the importance of teaching at the German School Of Watchmaking in Glashütte.

The new building at Uferstrasse 1 continues to take shape. The outline of the extraordinary towering structure looks rather like a ship moored on the slopes of the Müglitztal. A source of great speculation is the platform floating above the building: a landing site for helicopters, maybe? The rotunda will, however, be an official reception and event space. A beautiful home for the Moritz Grossmann watches of modern times. The rooms for the studios and workshops take up the bottom section, while the administration offices fit into the narrow tapered top section of the building. Work is well underway at Uferstrasse to meet the move-in date. The topping-out ceremony is planned for 14 July 2011. At Hauptstrasse, the team focuses all its efforts on completing the BENU and on the development work. New colleagues are being recruited and the logistics and communication departments are being set up. 2011 is the year of construction sites. Construction euphoria drives the team forward.

Moritz Grossmann congratulates France with a World Cup football watch

Vive les Bleus! Vive la France!

20 years later, France has again won the World Cup and Moritz Grossmann is celebrating Les Bleus with the special-edition ATUM Pure Weltmeisteredition 2018.

Moritz Grossmann is surprising watch enthusiasts and football fans with this World Cup watch based on the ATUM Pure X line. A sporty steel case paired with an individually designed World Cup dial. The Calibre 201.1 boasts an eye-catching football-shaped filigree dial insert. The final score ‘4:2’ with the year 2018 will be emblazoned on the watch face and the fingers and straps will be in France’s national colours.

We congratulate France’s World Cup team and the whole country on this great result. 4:2! The number of limited-edition ATUM Pure Weltmeisteredition 2018 watches released corresponds to the number of goals in the final and so just 6 are available and the German RRP will be 16,000 EUR incl. VAT.

Moritz Grossmann is double Red Dot winner 2018

Essen, 9 July 2018: The Red Dot awards rank among the world’s most coveted prizes for design excellence and innovation. The jury was so impressed with the superb design quality of both the black-dialled BENU Tourbillon in white gold, and the ATUM Enamel in rose gold that both pieces were recognised.  Moritz Grossmann was delighted to receive these two 2018 Red Dot Product Design awards at an event in Essen on July 9th.

Discover craftsmanship at William & Son

London, 10-12 May 2018: During London Craft Week 2018, our London retail partners, William & Son, and the leading UK watch magazine QP showcased the special craftsmanship of eight leading independent watch manufacturers. In the elegant salons of William & Son and together with De Bethune, F.P. Journe, Graham, H. Moser & Cie, Laurent Ferrier, Ludovic Ballouard and Romain Gauthier, Moritz Grossmann gave a UK premier to the innovations from Baselworld 2018, including the BENU Anniversary models.

Watch fans particularly appreciated the BENU 37, ATUM 37 and BENU Power Reserve in platinum, as well as our innovative automatic calibre in the ATUM Hamatic.  Our trademark stop-seconds mechanism on the BENU Tourbillon, featuring human hair, was greatly admired as was the high artistic finish of each of our calibres.

Our finisseur, Sebastian Hutkai, came along to demonstrate the art of Grossmann’s watch hand production. At his worktable on each of the three days, guests were able to experience the elaborate handcraftsmanship involved in creating the individual watch hands of the Moritz Grossmann timepieces at close quarters. Sebastian demonstrated his artistry with composure and answered many questions regarding the detail. Some of the guests also had a go at grinding, polishing and annealing the hands themselves. Moritz Grossmann CEO Christine Hutter shared her passion for watchmaking with the audience when she told her very personal story of how the manufactory was established. In the panel discussion “The Future of Heritage”, Romain Gauthier, Nicholas Hoffman of H. Moser and Christine Hutter discussed what traditional craftsmanship means for modern watch manufacturers and their future.

From 9-13 May, London Craft Week hosted a unique programme in the heart of London for the fourth time. International and British creatives, artists and producers celebrated their craft in front of an audience. In over 200 shows, events and workshops, visitors experienced a unique category – objects that combine beauty, substance and authenticity – and they immersed themselves in the making of these objects and learned about the stories behind the products and their makers. London Craft Week 2018 proved to be the perfect setting for Moritz Grossmann’s pure watchmaking artistry. We thank our partners in London and look forward to further exciting events on Bruton Street.

Exclusive interview with Christine Hutter on Chrono24

In an exclusive interview with Chrono24, Moritz Grossmann CEO Christine Hutter describes the background to our philosophy of precision watchmaking. Insights into the studios and workshops demonstrate the delicate manual work required in finishing and in the production of watch hands. You’ll find out what role human hair and painted fingernails play in the way we develop our calibres and see how a particular Moritz Grossmann watch has become a very personal treasure to its owner. The entire interview can be viewed on the Moritz Grossmann brand page on Chrono24.

Watch Time Collector’s Tour visit Moritz Grossmann

6 June 2018: Twelve excited watch collectors from the USA accepted the invitation of Ebner Verlag’s watch portal Watch Time and registered to take part in the first German Watchmaking Tour to Glashütte. During an extensive tour of the Moritz Grossmann manufactory, guests were able to experience all the phases of our pure watchmaking art, from the construction to the finish. The production of the hands and the finish particularly impressed the watch connoisseurs, who got to see some very exclusive artistry put into practice.

CEO Christine Hutter told the guests in person about the exciting history of Carl Moritz Grossmann and how she discovered the Glashütte watch pioneer, revived his name and his philosophy and thus created another Moritz Grossmann manufactory in Glashütte. In addition to their passion for mechanical watches, the American guests were particularly enthusiastic about the company’s pioneering work, both then and now: ‘I also really liked our visit to Moritz Grossman. The founder Christine Hutter was really impressive, and I loved hearing her story’.

Every year, Ebner Verlag and Watch Time organise several trips to the most sought-after brands in Switzerland for watch fans from all over the world. Two trips to Germany will be offered in 2018 for the first time and we hope to welcome such interested and well-informed guests again next year following this year’s positive responses. Conversations with collectors who have such detailed knowledge are also very inspiring for us.

Pure watchmaking art since 1854 Celebrating 10 years of Moritz Grossmann

In our anniversary year 2018 we’re looking back at the first ten years of the revived brand Moritz Grossmann for you: ten years – ten reviews, the Moritz Grossmann miniseries.

Part 3 – The year 2010

Germany’s successful way out of the crisis, recovery of the economy +++ iPad ushers in the age of tablets +++ Turnover of jewellers is growing again +++ Spain becomes World Champion at the first World Cup to take place in Africa +++ Sebastian Vettel becomes youngest Formula 1 world champion +++

Architectural competition for the new manufactory in Glashütte +++ Construction begins and foundation stone laid on Uferstraße 1 +++ Construction of studios and on-site watch hand production +++ New colleagues expand production, marketing and administration departments +++ Presentation of BENU, delivery of first models

The rooms on Hauptstraße are getting fuller, work space is getting tighter. Plans for the construction of a new manufactory are made quickly. A competition involving three architectural firms results in the desired solution. The watchmakers, meanwhile, are working at full speed on new developments and the collection. As a special trademark, they want to design and manufacture their own hands for the watches:  a rarity, even on the luxury watch market. The first Moritz Grossmann watch of modern times will be released this year and ancient Egyptian mythology has given us a beautiful image for a new beginning: the divine bird Benu, which renews itself from the ashes like a phoenix. With this, the name for the first watch from the new manufactory has been found. When the BENU is presented in September, the response is overwhelming. 2010 is the year of the BENU. Christine Hutter and her team have managed to give Moritz Grossmann’s values a contemporary edge.

モリッツ・グロスマンが2モデルで‘レッド・ドット・デザイン賞’を受賞

モリッツ・グロスマンの「ベヌー・トゥールビヨン」と「アトゥム・エナメル」が2018年度の‘レッド・ドット・デザイン賞’を受賞しました。

‘レッド・ドット・デザイン賞’は、60年以上もの歴史を持つ国際的なデザイン賞です。過去2年以内に製品化されたデザインを対象とし、厳格な審査を通過したプロダクトのみが‘レッド・ドット・デザイン賞’を贈られます。

2018年は59カ国から48のカテゴリーで6000以上ものプロダクトがエントリーされました。その中、モリッツ・グロスマンは2つのモデルで賞を獲得しました。

 

一つ目の受賞モデルはホワイトゴールドケースにブラックダイヤルを合わせた「ベヌー・トゥールビヨン」です。このモデルは世界限定10本で製作されました。このタイムピースは幾つかのユニークな特徴と複雑な機構を備えています。それは例えば、毛髪ブラシでテンワに負荷を掛けることなく優しく止めるストップセコンド機構や、3分間かけてゆっくりと回転するフライングトゥールビヨンです。独自のV字型ブリッジの16㎜径の大型キャリッジは、25分から35分の間のミニッツレールを横切る大きな円窓からその全体像をご覧いただけます。分針がトゥールビヨンの円窓を通過している間は、2つのサブダイヤルの間に設けられた目盛りが補完しているため、分針のカウンターウェイトで正確な時刻を読み取ることが可能です。(特許申請)また、秒針が振れるのを防ぐ四番車の軸のブレーキリングには、石のように硬く、樹脂に富むため潤滑油を必要としない木材「ユソウボク」を使用しています。

 

2つ目の受賞モデルはローズゴールドケースの「アトゥム・エナメル」です。このモデルは世界限定25本で発表されました。伝統的なグラン・フーエナメル文字盤にはクラシカルなローマン数字のインデックスを合わせています。1文字だけブルーで印字された12時のインデックスが、シンプルなデザインにモダンな個性を添えます。純白の文字盤を更に彩るのは、一つ一つ職人の手により形作られた、モリッツ・グロスマンの象徴とも言えるブラウンバイオレットに焼き戻された美しい針です。

 

我々はこれらの2つの賞を非常に誇りに思うと同時に、モリッツ・グロスマンのデザイナーと時計師たちの技術と創造性に敬意を表します。

This year marks the 15th edition of the exclusive show, offering an extensive annex programme with interesting workshops, events, and forums – such as the new “One-Day DJWE Forum”, a charity auction with hand-picked jewellery designed by talented young Qataris, or the “Watchmaker for a Day” sessions hosted by Ateliers Objectif Horlogerie.

From 21 to 26 February, the Doha Jewellery and Watches Exhibition extends an invitation to participate in a unique journey through the luxurious realm of 400 top brands from 10 countries.

The “Extreme-Dubai” debuts at Dubai Watch Week

Moritz Grossmann and Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons present an exclusive theme model

When Dubai Watch Week has opened on 16 November, visitors can admire a veritably rare timepiece at Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons: the “Extreme-Dubai” that was conceived jointly with Moritz Grossmann and crafted in the Glashütte manufacture will surprise them with an exotic finish and an exclusive limited edition of 17 ½ pieces.

Here, for the first time, Moritz Grossmann’s pure watchmaking artistry stands out with a chic “used look” in a unique configuration: lacking a dial, with an irregularly oxidised steel case, the manufacture calibre 201.2 exhibiting a close-to-destructive surface finish, the sapphire-crystal glass visually cracked, the strap timeworn. The “Extreme-Dubai”, created in 2017, looks like a vintage timepiece from the 19th century even though it is brand new.

The 17 ½ pieces made for Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons stand for the friendship and affiliation between the two companies that in 2017 culminated with this shared project. The 18th “Extreme-Dubai” is split: the separate halves are on display in Glashütte and Dubai. Moritz Grossmann’s team looks forward to this debut at Dubai Watch Week, which under the auspices of Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons has evolved to become one of the most important horology shows in the Middle East.

Moritz Grossmann receives Eve's Watch Award

TEFNUT Twist Classic wins in the “Best Innovation 2017” category

London: This year’s Eve’s Watch Award winners were celebrated at Morton’s Club on 2 November 2017. For the second time now, Eve’s Watch – the only watch magazine for women only – commended outstanding design, dedication, and pioneering achievements in the world of horology. The broadening feminine appeal of the scene is evidenced by a growing number of female watch buyers and collectors as well as by the many charismatic and talented women in prominent positions within the industry. Alongside the “Public Vote” award, more than 50 respected manufactures were rated in a total of 12 categories, including “Best Design”, “Best High Jewellery”, and “Best Newcomer”.

Moritz Grossmann won the Eve’s Watch Award in the “Best Innovation” category, for which Chanel, Fabergé, Hermès, Richard Mille, and Ressence were also nominated. The jury was impressed by the new strap winder of the TEFNUT Twist Classic. The unique mechanism makes it possible to wind the watch with just a few “twists” of the strap attachment at 6 o’clock. Grossmann’s watchmakers developed this solution, which is especially comfortable for smaller timepieces; it can also be operated with gloves or freshly applied nail polish. Moritz Grossmann CEO Christine Hutter is delighted: “Our philosophy of pure watchmaking artistry since 1854 has conquered the present and is now winning the hearts of women as well.

Excerpt from the jury’s accolade: “The TEFNUT Twist is a proper watch, beautifully executed movement and innovative take on a traditional manually wound watch. Timeless and well designed! … Genuinely new ideas in the world of watches are rare. However, this year Moritz Grossmann wowed Baselworld, and indeed us, with something really innovative – a watch that is wound by the strap via a cylindrical lug attached to its lower half, which goes into the case and winds the mainspring (though one of our esteemed judging panel has seen watches wound in a similar manner from the 19th century). … It’s an innovation that has a sense of fun but still serves a practical purpose and captured our panel’s imagination – we just had to award it the trophy.“

The Eve’s Watch Awards 2017 were organised with the support of Urb-it, an on-demand lifestyle shopping app. The jury composed of journalists, designers, influencers, purchasers, watchmakers and collectors, most of them women, recognises and represents the unique feminine facets of horology.

"Give us a 'D'" – Moritz Grossmann plays Black/Yellow.

For the kick-off with Dynamo Dresden, Moritz Grossmann presents the „Black/Yellow“, a special model of the BENU Power Reserve.

The Moritz Grossmann manufacture has a presence as a player at many international events but also places emphasis on its traditional roots with commitments to numerous regional activities. In 2017, the company announced its collaboration with SG Dynamo Dresden. Grossmann CEO Christine Hutter: „In the past years, Dynamo has scored impressive gains with a track record that has elevated the eleven into the 2nd league. Our encounter with sporting director Ralf Minge and chief trainer Uwe Neuhaus was a delightful introduction to a magnificent team, and we look forward to an inspiring spirit of collaboration.“

Moritz Grossmann is now presenting the BENU Power Reserve in an edition limited to 11 watches. The special „Black/Yellow“ BENU Power Reserve model in white gold for Dynamo Dresden stands out with the inimitable aesthetic appeal of the watch family. With its two-colour power-reserve indicator, this watch is the perfect choice for a version in Dynamo Dresden’s livery. When the watch is fully wound, the bar in the dial aperture shows black and gradually turns yellow as time elapses. The black dial is adorned with a stylised ‚D‘.

The stainless steel rhomboid hands, manufacture-crafted especially for the BENU, are filled with yellow HyCeram and contrast brilliantly against the dark dial. Additionally, the black alligator leather strap is accentuated with yellow contrast stitching. The limited-edition serial number appears on the caseback. The noble High-Artistic finish of the calibre 100.2 movement can be admired through the display back.

As of immediately, the  „Black/Yellow” BENU Power Reserve can be ordered directly from Moritz Grossmann; subject to availability, buyers can specify the edition number – from 1/11 to 11/11 – that they prefer.

モリッツ・グロスマンが新開発の日付表示と手巻き機構をバーゼルで披露

新規オープンの「LES ATELIERS」 – ホール1.2のスタンドL01

モリッツ・グロスマンは、3月23~30日まで再びバーゼルの中心部で開催されるバーゼルワールドに出展いたします。ホール1.2の新規スタンド「LES ATELIERS」では、これまは「The Palace」で会していた独立マニュファクチュールが見本市ホール1のロジスティクスのもとに集まり、新しくデザインされた快適な展示スペースに登場します。モリッツ・グロスマンは、その他のアトリエや工房と隣り合うスタンドL01にて、特別モデルや一点物を初めて含むこととなったコレクションをご紹介し、バーゼルでのこのチャンスに限ってマニュファクチュールのノベルティを披露します。グロスマンの時計職人たちは、画期的な開発をも通して新しい道を切り開き、視覚的にも構造的にも純粋な時計作りの技能を昇華させます。
ベーゼルでは、見て、感じて、動かして、感動することができます。

アトゥム・プリマヴェラ

モリッツ・グロスマンがバーゼルに春をお届け。アトゥム・プリマヴェラは「ブルー・サンバースト」、「イエロー・・サンバースト」、「レッド・サンバースト」という3つの個性的なダイヤルカラーで皆様を魅了します。ギター製作における2トーンサンバーストとしても知られている、ハイグレードなサンバースト塗装技術は、透明から不透明までの色の階調を生み出し、ピュアなアトゥムの容貌によく調和します。ハイ・アーティスティック・フィニッシュで仕上げられた自社製キャリバー100.1の姿がシースルー裏蓋から伺い見られます。

アトゥム・エナメル

アトゥム・エナメルがさらなるゴージャスな仕様で皆様にサプライズをお届けします。その
エナメル加工のダイヤルは、いにしえの工芸職人へのさらなる回顧です。今も昔も、最高レベルの完成度でエナメルを扱えるのは数少ないその道のマイスターのみです。エナメルの上塗りはある種の“白い金”として文字盤に類稀な純粋さを与え、そこでは、漆黒の目盛りと冠のごときブルーの「XII」の文字が美しいコントラスト織り成しています。アトゥム・エナメルはハイ・アーティスティック・フィニッシュで仕上げられた自社製キャリバーを搭載しています。ケースカラーにはローズゴールドとホワイトゴールドがあり、それぞれ25本の限定生産となっています。

アトゥム・デート

日付表示は、高い需要がありつつ時計通の間では議論の耐えないコンプリケーションですが、グロスマンはこれをジャンプ型日付変更で実現しました。完全な日付目盛りと一風変わった形状のポインタがその特徴です。正確な視認が可能なアトゥム・デートの表示の裏には、機械的な精巧さを誇るキャリバー100.3が控えています。日付変更の複雑なシステムでは、日付表示が正確にジャンプすること以外に、10時位置の追加リュウズでいつでも前後調整が可能であることが優先されており、月末などの日付調整も非常に楽に行えます。

アトゥム・ピュアGとアトゥム・ピュアL

ムーブメントまで透けて見えるシースルー・ダイヤルはアトゥム・ピュアMでも知られていますが、今ここに2つのバリエーションが加わります。ステンレススチール製のダイヤルパネルは異なるひな型で製作されており、このモデルのスポーティーで優雅なニュアンスにもまたそれぞれの違いが生まれます。アトゥム・ピュアLの「L」は「Long Hole(長い穴)」を意味し、透過性が非常に高く、ピュア・クラシック・フィニッシュ仕上げのキャリバー201.0をよく見ることが出来ます。アトゥム・ピュアGの「G」は「Grid(格子)」を意味し、さほどシースルーではない一方で、このスチール製ケースのクラシカルでテクニカルな優美さが強調されています。針とインデックスにはホワイト、ブルー、グリーン、オレンジの4種類のHyCeramカラーを施しています。アトゥム・ピュアGとアトゥム・ピュアLには、ステンレススチールとDLC dianoir加工ステンレススチールのケースバリエーションがあり、カラーならびにダイヤルバリエーションごとに25本限定生産となっています。
アトゥム・スケレット

この“一点物”では純粋な美しさと純粋な時計作りの職人芸がひとつになっています。モリッツ・グロスマンとクリストフ・シャフロのコラボレーションから時計の芸術作品が生まれました。クリストフ・シャフロはその道のマイスターとして名を馳せています。ラ・ブレヴィーヌにある彼の工房では、一点物の最高級時計を完全に手作業で、年間10本まで製作しています。彼の仕事は、技術、手工芸、そして高度の芸術的創造性の融合です。それぞれの作品にはインスピレーション、経験、そして才能に満ちた彼の指先の繊細な感覚が流れ込んでいます。スケルトン化されたキャリバー100.5では、最小限の素材しか使用していません。各コンポーネントは手作業で面取り、彫刻、エングレーヴィングされています。類稀なアトゥム・スケレットはローズゴールドまたはホワイトゴールドの仕様からご選択いただけます。

テフヌート・スリーピング・ビューティー

グロスマン・マニュファクチュールとの協力のもと、マイケル・コーは、謎に満ちた月の世界へと人を誘う優雅なドレスウォッチを作成しました。テフヌート・スリーピング・ビューティーは月の様々な姿をモチーフにしています。ダイヤル上ではローマ数字、非凡な時針、非対称のギョーシェ模様、月の横顔がマジカルな魅力を放っています。そして彫刻を思わせるフォルムのケースと片側がオープンになっているストラップ留め具が意表をつきます。マイケル・コーはシンガポール屈指のデザイナーであり、彼が率いるCaratell社はアジアでもトップの高級ブランドです。稀少な宝石に対する彼の特別な情熱はテフヌート・スリーピング・ビューティーにおいても見て取れます。マイケル・コーはケースとストラップのカラーに調和するニュアンスを生み出すべく、ダイヤモンドと宝石を選り抜きました。

テフヌート・ツイスト

グロスマンの時計職人は、新開発の巻き上げ機構を搭載するテフヌート・ツイストによって、その独創的な希望をかなえました。通常のリュウズによる巻上げの信頼に足る代替を模索した結果、驚くばかりにシンプルなソリューションが実現されました。グロスマン製のストラップ巻き上げでは、ケースの「6」時位置にあるストラップ留め具を回すだけでとても簡単に時計の巻上げることができます。このストラップには、楽に掴むことができ、時計をほんの数度回すだけで完全に巻き上げるために十分なスペースが割かれています。これで取扱いが非常に快適になり、とりわけ小さな時計にとっては大きなメリットとなります。異彩を放つストラップ留め具のブリッジを利用したグロスマンのストラップ巻き上げと、普通とは違うポジションの設定リュウズは一瞥して目に留まります。この類稀な機能の開発のためにテフヌートのケースに手が加えられ、キャリバー102.0は広範に修整されました。明確に構想された「ファンシー」、「クラシック」、「クラシック・ジェント」という3つのバリエーションにはローズゴールドとホワイトゴールドのケースカラーがあり、テフヌート・ツイストの風貌が際立つとともに、その機構もまた存在感を強めます

‘ピュア’は表面加工と時計作りにおける構造の細部に焦点を当て、素材と機能性を両立させるという新しいコンセプトです。極限まで装飾を削ぎ落とした古典的なピュア・フィニッシュ・キャリバーに現代的な素材のケースを組み合わせることによって生まれる斬新なアイデアは、スチールケースの解釈という点でラグジュアリー・ウォッチの既成概念に新たな一石を投じます。

モリッツ・グロスマンがピュア・フィニッシュのコンセプトと共に「アトゥム・ピュア」を発表

Grossmann präsentiert das Pur-Finish und die ATUM Pur

新しいピュア・フィニッシュのキャリバー

モリッツ・グロスマンのマニュファクチュールはグラスヒュッテで19世紀に作られた精密機器の美しさと機能性を求めて2008年に設立されました。ブランドの創立者であるモリッツ・グロスマンのアイデアは今もなお新たなインスピレーションを新生モリッツ・グロスマンに与えてくれます。彼の論文「シンプルかつ機械的に完璧な時計の設計について」は現在の時計製作にも十分に通用するとも言えるのです。

ピュア・フィニッシュでグロスマンはあらためて歴史的な特徴を取り上げています。当時モリッツ・グロスマンは表面加工を変えることでクロノメーターの外観にバリエーションを持たせました。その著しく異なる仕様は、様々なコンセプトを表しているように見えます。しかし、そこに共通して言えることは華美な表面加工をしていないということです。モリッツ・グロスマン社はこの伝統を受け継ぎました。ピュア・フィニッシュでは表面加工と時計作りにおける構造の細部に焦点を当て、素材と機能性が美しいバランスで両立しています。マニュファクチュール製の二つのピュア・フィニッシュ・キャリバーは、アトゥムとテフヌートの両シリーズにおいて新しいスチールケースと組み合わされます。現代的なスチールケースと研ぎ澄まされた美しさをもつピュア・フィニッシュ・キャリバーは、アトゥム・ピュア、アトゥム・ピュアM、テフヌート・ピュアにおいて創立者であるグロスマンの哲学を完璧に現わしています。「シンプルかつ機械的に完璧な時計」―これがまさに1854年から続く、モリッツ・グロスマンの時計作りです。

世界的バス歌手 ルネ・パーペがモリッツ・グロスマン ファミリーに: 「黄金の歌声」と「真の時計作り」の出会い

ルネ・パーペが2014年8月にグラスヒュッテのモリッツ・グロスマン・マニュファクチュールを訪れたことでこの結びつきは生まれました。多彩なアーティストとして知られるルネ・パーペが時計師モリッツ・グロスマンの真価を見出したのです。完璧主義者で先見の明があったグロスマンは、19世紀の時計作りにおける道標をつけ、世界の舞台で成功をおさめると同時に、時計の町グラスヒュッテになくてはならなかった人物です。
ルネ・パーペもモリッツ・グロスマンと同じくドレスデン生まれです。彼はその才能と情熱に導かれてバス歌手としてドレスデンで音楽を学び、1988年にベルリン国立歌劇場のメンバーとなりました。
ルネ・パーペはベルリーナー・アンサンブルの一員として専門分野におけるあらゆる大役をこなします。
一方で主要なオペラハウス、国際的なコンサートホールやフェスティバルを舞台に活躍しています。持てる才能を幅広く活かし、世界的に高い評価を誇る実力派です。
「ピュア・ゴールド ー ルネ・パーペはカリスマ性と知性、そして百万人に一人の声で聴衆を魅了するアーティストだ。パーペのしなやかで、表情豊かなバスの贅沢な音色は異彩を放つ。そのビロードのようなセピア色のテクスチャーは、耳を捉えて離さない鮮やかな閃光を持って放たれる。(オペラ・ニュース)」
ルネ・パーペは、グラミー賞(1998年・2003年)やエコー賞クラシック部門(2009年、ソロCD 「Gods, Kings and Demons」)など世界の音楽界で様々なタイトルを受賞しています。
「ドレスデンを離れたことはありません」と語るルネ・パーペは、自らのルーツをドレスデンに見出しています。ドレスデンの聖母教会が2005年に再建されたときにはザクセン国立歌劇場合唱団とともに歌い、ゼンパーオペラ座でも定期的に出演し、余暇もまたドレスデンの自宅で過ごしています。「故郷(原点)」とは、ルネ・パーペにとっては生きているという感覚を与えてくれるものであり、モリッツ・グロスマンにとってはビジョンの基礎、つまり「新しい時代の原点」なのです。
グロスマンの芸術的な時計の再興がルネ・パーペの心を動かしたことはとても誇らしいことです。声楽という素晴らしい芸術が伝統的な精密時計作りの芸術と結びつきます。彼のホワイトゴールドのベヌー・パワーリザーブは2015年に引き渡されます。
私たちはモリッツ・グロスマンのファミリーとなったルネ・パーペを心から歓迎し、ともに舞台に立てることを楽しみにしています。

The Glashütte watch manufacturer MORITZ GROSSMAN is sponsoring the GLOBAL FEMALE LEADERS SUMMIT 2015

On April 21st and 22nd female leaders met in Berlin for the annual summit of the Global Female Leaders – The Economic Summit for Female Executives to discuss trends and issues, challenges and opportunities in the global networked world.

Last year, Christine Hutter (CEO Grossmann Uhren GmbH) had participated herself in the conference as a speaker. With great interest the participants pursued Christine Hutters speech about building up Grossmann Uhren GmbH with its brand MORITZ GROSSMANN GLASHÜTTE I/SA. This year, the Glashütte watch manufacturer has decided to expand this cooperation and supports the summit as a sponsor.

Christine Hutter: „I am very pleased that we can support this event. The Global Female Leaders Summit brings together female deciders of all kinds of fields and opens an exchange of ideas and strategies across the boarders. The meeting ensures that the attention of participants is drawn to new markets and fields outside their own environment. From this we as Grossmann Uhren GmbH can derive new inspirations.“

ドイツ時計ブランド「モリッツ・グロスマン」が日本に初上陸 -世界初のブティックが東京・小石川にオープン-

2015年1月30日、ドイツの高級時計ブランド「モリッツ・グロスマン」が日本初上陸に合わせ、世界で初のブティックを東京・小石川にオープンしました。
モリッツ・グロスマン(1826~1885年)は優れた時計職人であると同時に、ドイツ時計学校を設立するなど、ドイツ・グラスヒュッテの時計産業の歴史を語る上で欠かすことのできない存在です。モリッツ・グロスマンの伝統を受け継ぎ、最高品質の素材などを基礎に据えた究極のクラフトマンシップを再興するため、2008年にドイツ・グラスヒュッテでグロスマン・ウーレン社は設立されました。2010年にファーストモデル「ベヌー」を発表し、現在までにハイコンプリケーションのトゥールビヨンを含む全4モデルを展開しています。徹底した「手作り」にこだわり、時計の針までも自社で製造、ネジを含むパーツ一つ一つさえも職人の手作業により完璧に仕上げられます。

モリッツ・グロスマン ブティックは100㎡の敷地面積に天井の高さは7mを誇ります。元印刷工場だった店内は従来の高級時計のブティックのイメージを覆す開放感のある空間が広がり、モリッツ・グロスマンの世界観を表現するために凝らされた意匠は洗練された居心地の良い空間を演出します。ブティック入口には桜並木が続く播磨坂に完璧に沿うように緑の壁が施され、店内は白いレンガと漆喰の壁と黒い木の床のコントラストが落ち着いた雰囲気を醸し出します。天井の両端には印刷工場で使用されていたクレーン用のH型鋼を残し、一段上がったスペースに置かれたドイツ/ハイデルベルグ社の古い活版印刷機が架空の印刷工場を濃厚に再現します。

グロスマン・ウーレン 社CEOのクリスティーネ・フッター氏は次のように語ります。「日本は最も重要なマーケットの一つです。東京でブティックをオープンするにあたり私たちの歴史は新たなステージに入りました。世界初のブティックである東京ブティックには、ブランドの哲学と精神を表現する最適の空間が演出されています。」
モリッツ・グロスマン ブティックではグラスヒュッテ製のアンティーク工具が飾られ、全ラインの商品が展示、販売されます。

モリッツ・グロスマン追悼記念

130年前の1885年1月23日、モリッツ・グロスマンはライプツィヒでの講演中に58歳で突然亡くなりました。彼の死は大きな悲しみを呼び、地方新聞および専門誌に数々の記事が掲載され、彼を偲んでその偉大な功績がたたえられています。
その後、彼の亡骸は病理学研究所からドレスデン駅に搬送され、ドレスデンとミューゲルン(ハイデナウ近郊)を経由してグラスヒュッテへ電車で運ばれました。ベートーヴェンの葬送音楽が鳴る中、長い行列が町を通って墓地へ向かい、葬礼の参列者は1000人を超えたといいます。そして、その死からわずか3年後に、グロスマンは目立つことはないものの素晴らしい栄誉を受けました。ドイツ時計新聞には見出しの図案に時計作りの寓意像として一人の女性が2枚のプレートとともに座っており、そこには国内外の重要な時計師の名前が刻まれています。1888年度の初号でこの時計作りにおける偉大な人物のリストにモリッツ・グロスマンの名前が加えられたのです。グロスマンは、クリスティアーン・ホイヘンス、ジョージ・グラハム、トーマス·アーンショウ、アブラハム・ルイ・ブレゲ、フェルディナント·ベルトゥー、エドワード·デント、ウルバン・ヤーゲンセン、ハインリッヒ・ヨハン・ケッセル、アドルフ·ランゲおよびフリードリッヒ・ティーデといった人々と同じ域に達したと言えるでしょう。
2008年以降、グロスマンの名前と遺志が再び息づいています。時計師であるクリスティーネ・フッターがグロスマン・ウーレン社を設立し、モリッツ・グロスマンの遺産が後世に引き継がれました。今日、マニュファクチュールでは46人のスペシャリストが開発・製作に取り組み、モリッツ・グロスマンの要求と哲学を満たす傑作を生み出しています。

ルネ・パーペがモリッツ・グロスマンのマニュファクチュールを訪問

2014年8月27日水曜日、有名なオペラ歌手ルネ・パーペがグラスヒュッテのモリッツ・グロスマン・マニュファクチュールを訪れました。ドレスデン出身の彼は世界的な名声で知られるバス歌手で、名だたる歌劇場での公演や数々のクラシック・アルバムのリリース、グラミー賞やエコー賞の受賞など、素晴らしい経歴の持ち主です。

モリッツ・グロスマンの創設者クリスティーネ・フッター社長によるマニュファクチュールの見学ツアーを通じて、この有名なゲストにモリッツ・グロスマンの芸術的な時計作りをご覧いただきました。ルネ・パーペはその印象に感銘を受け、時計作りと公演を比較して次のように語っています。「芸術的に完璧を極める演奏には、メンバー全員の息が合っていることが求められます。同じことがムーブメントにも当てはまります。すべての部品が完璧に調和しないとモリッツ・グロスマンのような独自の時計は考えられません」。

ルネ・パーペの歌声なくしては考えられないオペラブッファがニューヨークで予定されています。2014年9月下旬から数週間、マンハッタンのメトロポリタン歌劇場で上演される『マクベス』と『魔笛』で彼の歌声が響き渡ります。
