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.

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 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.

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.

Wide Glashütte stripes are applied to both sides of the movement and the Moritz Grossmann logo is hand engraved on the dial side.

Die BENU Power Reserve Anniversary – hand-engraved anniversary model

Schönstes deutsches Handwerk

On 11 November 2008, Christine Hutter founded Grossmann Uhren using the great name of Moritz Grossmann, the co-founder of the Glashütte watch industry. The BENU Power Reserve Anniversary is a celebration of the company’s tenth birthday with a special engraving done by hand to honours Moritz Grossmann.

In a nod to the special anniversary of the manufactory, the rose gold BENU Power Reserve Anniversary has ‘2008 – 2018’ engraved on the left side of the case by hand. In addition, Moritz Grossmann’s initials have been engraved on the upper right-hand side of the casing between the crown and strap.

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.

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 spoke on a panel moderated by John Reardon of Christie’s about how design, technology and craftsmanship go hand in hand in the modern era. 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.

Celebrating ten years of Moritz Grossmann

For the Jubilee Year 2018, we are celebrating the first ten years of the revived Moritz Grossmann brand: ten years – ten historical flashbacks, the Moritz Grossmann mini-series.

Part 4 – The year 2011

 Japan: seaquake, tsunami, nuclear disaster in Fukushima  +++  Arab Spring: civil wars and revolution, North African countries in chaos  +++  Ongoing theme in Europe: debt crises and bailouts +++  New record for a Roy Lichtenstein work at Christie’s N.Y.: 43.2 million dollars for a speech bubble ‘I Can See the Whole Room… and There’s Nobody in It!’  +++

Topping-out ceremony in the manufactory building at Uferstrasse 1  +++  Construction of the logistics and communication departments  +++  Development of new movements

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.

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.

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.

Two Moritz Grossmann watches receive the “Red Dot”

The BENU Tourbillon and the ATUM Enamel rank among the best products in 2018

The “Red Dot” is an international design competition that has been running more than 60 years. This year, the jury assessed over 6,000 pieces in 48 categories from 59 countries against strict design criteria. Only about 25% of the entries won an award. Moritz Grossmann won two!

The first “Red Dot Product Design 2018” award went to the BENU Tourbillon in white gold with a black dial. This is a limitation of only 10 pieces worldwide.  The timepiece contains some unique features and complications. For example, there is a prominent flying three-minute tourbillon with a stop second device featuring human hair. The oversized 16mm V-shaped tourbillon carriage appears in a large aperture which cuts the minute dial between 25 and 35. A patented secondary minute scale compensates so that time can be read accurately at all times. Finally a guaiacum wood brake ring controls the elegant sweep of the second hand.

The second award went to the ATUM Enamel in rose gold. Another limited edition – this time of 25 pieces – it boasts an exquisite enamel dial which echoes the craftsmanship of early Glashütte. Crisply drawn scales and Roman numerals contrast against the gleaming white of the Grand Feu enamel. Eye-catchers include the blue “XII” and the beautiful hands which – like all of our hands – have been individually sculpted, by hand, in-house, and then annealed to the rare brown-violet hue which is Moritz Grossmann’s signature.

We are very proud of these two awards. They are a tribute to the skill and creativity of our dedicated designers and master-watchmakers.

特製表款“极限迪拜“於迪拜腕表週正式登场

高级独立製表品牌莫里茨·格罗斯曼(Moritz Grossmann)与阿联酋知名腕表零售商Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons共同呈现“极限迪拜“(Extreme-Dubai)特製表款。

迪拜腕表週(Dubai Watch Week),於11月16日正式开放,不少访客们总流连於知名腕表零售商Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons的活动展场,欣赏与探究各式难以窥见的极稀有高级腕表。策划推出的『极限迪拜』表款亦是其中之一,由品牌位於德国格拉苏蒂(Glashütte)的自家表厂精心打造,势必能以独到设计与完美工艺的『17枚半』限量腕表,惊艳全场。

这是品牌首次尝试将自家纯粹腕表工艺与时尚仿旧的视觉元素,完美结合至此『极限迪拜』表款:腕表没有表盘,表壳则是採用特别处理氧化后的精钢材质,表镜则呈现不规则分裂纹饰,仿旧处理皮革表带,并配载全新机芯201.2号,该机芯在表面完工上具有破坏损毁的视觉效果。也因此,即使“极限迪拜“表款於2017年全新研发製造,外观却看似19世纪末的腕表那般復古。

此限量17枚半的“极限迪拜“腕表同时亦象徵著双方的坚定友谊与互信合作,双方於2017年开展此项合作计画,并得以在迪拜腕表週开始前如愿成真。所谓的半枚腕表,实乃第18枚腕表的切割,一半将置於品牌格拉苏蒂的錶厂内,另一半则由零售商伙伴收藏在迪拜。双方都十分期待“极限迪拜“在迪拜腕表週的初次登场,并深信该款势必在中东地区的鐘表展上,佔据一席重要地位。

莫里茨·格罗斯曼荣获Eve’s Watch 2017年最佳创新奖

品牌推出的泰芙努特翻转腕表(Tefnut Twist)由Eve’s Watch获颁2017年最佳创新奖(Best Innovation 2017)。

今年Eve Watch诸项奖项下的优胜者皆於11月2日在Morton’s Club共聚一堂,庆祝得奖殊荣。2017年是第二次知名女性专门腕錶杂誌Eve’s Watch举办腕表评审活动,依照各种审核类别如设计或珠宝等,从参与比赛的腕表品牌中选出该年优胜,这项活动同时反映了腕表界中数量正在成长的女性收藏家与买家外,也鼓励越来越多的女性在鐘表產业上担任重要职务,一展长才。除了由大眾票选而出的最佳人气奖外,有超过50多位表厂与品牌角逐12项专业奖项,其中包含最佳设计奖(Best Design),最佳高级珠宝奖(Best High Jewellery)以及最佳新人奖(Best Newcomer)等。

莫里茨·格罗斯曼以泰芙努特翻转腕表,成功拿下本年度的最佳创新奖,该奖项其他角逐者包含了香奈儿(Chanel),爱马仕(Hermes),法贝热(Faberge),理查德·米勒(Richard Mille)与瑞森斯(Ressence)等。评审者对於泰芙努特翻转腕表经典款中配有的可旋转上鍊的表带设计,感到相当惊艳。此项固定上鍊设计安置在表盘六点鐘方向下方,透过数次翻转表带即可上鍊。这项设计对於较小型机械錶来说十分方便外,即使手戴手套或是留有法式指甲的女性都能轻鬆上鍊。品牌首席执行官胡特女士(Christine Hutter)受访表示:我们将品牌哲学—源起自1854年的纯粹製錶工艺—成功带入当代并赢得女性的赏识。

部分讲评擷取如下:泰芙努特翻转腕表在传统机械錶上鍊机制的基础上,呈现了一个美丽又创新的研发,细节恰到好处,经典且设计贴切。事实上,新的点子在世上极為罕见,然而莫里茨·格罗斯曼今年於巴塞尔錶展(Baselworld)令我们惊艳,腕表透过位在六点鐘方向位置上的上鍊轴桿传递动能,设计精妙复杂同时创意非凡。此项创新不仅具备实用性,也深深吸引了评审们的目光。此奖项颁与莫里茨·格罗斯曼,名副其实。

本年度Eve’s Watch评审暨颁奖活动由Urb-it共同规划举办。评审人士包含记者,设计师,腕表指标专家,產业买家,製表厂以及腕表收藏家。多数评审為女性,藉此展现女性於鐘表界独有的风貌与品味。

"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.

莫里茨·格罗斯曼以日期显示与手动上链全新开发成果闪耀巴塞尔世界钟表珠宝博览会。

敬请光临位于1.2号馆全新开放的LES ATELIERS展览空间中的L01展台

莫里茨·格罗斯曼深知巴塞尔世界钟表珠宝博览会的巨大影响力,并于3月23日至30日再次亮相。1.2馆中的全新展览空间LES ATELIERS为至今在The Palace中布展的独立品牌提供了经过全新设计的宽敞展览空间,且与1号馆共享物流服务。莫里茨·格罗斯曼在L01展位紧邻工作室和工坊展示整个表款系列,首次涵盖特殊表款与珍罕单品。此外,品牌还于巴塞尔独家推出表厂创新开发结晶。格罗斯曼的制表大师在开发过程中另辟蹊径,开辟出全新创新道路,在外观与技术领域施展纯粹的制表工艺。在巴塞尔,参观者能够近距离亲身体验、细意洞察并陶醉于品牌表款的独特精髓。

亚图姆春天腕表

莫里茨·格罗斯曼将春天带向巴塞尔。亚图姆春天腕表以三种不同寻常的表盘色彩——蓝色旭日、黄色旭日与红色旭日——打动众多表迷。高品质旭日涂层技术——同样在吉他界以双色旭日表面修饰为名深受推崇——实现了从透明到不透明的色彩梯度,与亚图姆的简约风格完美搭配。透过透明表底,采用高雅艺术表面修饰的100.1型自制机芯一览无余。

亚图姆珐琅腕表

亚图姆珐琅腕表闪亮登场,震撼表坛。其
珐琅表盘是对往昔手工艺的追溯与致敬。不论过往还是今昔,仅有少数大师能够真正掌握完美无瑕的珐琅作品之精髓。被称为“白色黄金”的珐琅以涂层方式赋予表盘独特的纯度,并与深黑色时标刻度和数字,以及位于顶端的蓝色“XII ”标志形成耀眼的对比。亚图姆珐琅腕表搭载拥有极具艺术美感表面修饰的100.1型自制机芯,玫瑰金和白金表壳款式各限量25枚。

亚图姆日期腕表

莫里茨·格罗斯曼以跳时式日期切换机制对日期显示这项尤为实用且深受钟表鉴赏家热衷的复杂功能予以诠释。这项开发结晶以完整的日期刻度与非凡的指针造型脱颖而出。在亚图姆日期腕表的清晰显示背后,100.3型机芯承载着高超而精妙的机械工艺。除了精确跳时式日期显示外,日期切换复杂系统的优点还在于,通过位于“10点钟”位置的单独调节表冠可随时向前与向后对日期进行调校。这令例如月份末尾的日期调整变得尤为轻松方便。

亚图姆精粹G款腕表与亚图姆精粹L款腕表

亚图姆精粹M款腕表中能够透视机芯的镂空表盘在制表界掀起了一阵浪潮。如今,这一表盘样式在两款全新腕表中获得了独特演绎。精钢表盘嵌片具有不同图案,为腕表赋予动感优雅气质,但风格又彼此不同。亚图姆精粹L款腕表的“长孔”表盘嵌片实现了最大透明度,令201.0型机芯的简约经典表面修饰透彻地展示在观者眼前。亚图姆精粹G款腕表的“网格”表盘嵌片的透明度并不明显,似有似无,让佩戴者对精钢表壳之下的经典技术特性浮想联翩。指针及时标刻度具有白色、蓝色、绿色和橙色四种HyCeram填充色彩。亚图姆精粹G款腕表与亚图姆精粹L款腕表具有精钢与DLC dianoir精钢表壳款式,每个色彩与表盘款式各限量25枚。

亚图姆镂空腕表

这款非凡单品将纯净之美与纯粹的制表工艺相互糅合。在莫里茨·格罗斯曼和克里斯托弗·沙夫(Christophe Schaffo)的合作下,这款制表艺术杰作登上表坛。克里斯托弗·沙夫是所在领域名副其实的顶尖大师。在位于拉布雷维讷(La Brévine)的工坊中,他设计并完全以手工打造出具有最高品质的珍罕佳作,每年最多生产10枚腕表。他的作品将技术、工艺和高度的艺术创造力集于一身。每个单独工件中都融入了非凡的灵感、深厚的经验,及其灵巧双手的精准拿捏。鉴于镂空设计,100.5型机芯对用料予以最大精简。所有单独部件均以手工获得倒角、镂刻与镌刻。客户可在玫瑰金或白金款式的亚图姆镂空腕表中进行选择。

泰芙努特睡美人腕表

在与格罗斯曼的合作中,许统稀设计出一款尤为精美的首饰腕表,让人不禁对明月的神秘天地浮想联翩。泰芙努特睡美人腕表对明月多变的外观予以诠释。在表盘上,罗马数字、独特的时针、不对称的扭索饰纹以及对明月的巧妙刻画令整款腕表极具吸引力。散发立体感的表壳以单侧浮动的表带固定杆令人眼前一亮。许统稀是新加坡的顶尖金匠与首饰设计师,其公司Caratell跻身亚洲最佳奢侈品牌之列。他对于具有非凡特质宝石的迷恋同样展现于泰芙努特睡美人腕表之中,许统稀为腕表甄选了与表壳和表带色调和谐一致的钻石和宝石。

泰芙努特翻转腕表

通过为泰芙努特翻转腕表设计的新型上链机制,格罗斯曼的制表师实现了一项特别的夙愿。在对当前表冠上链机制更为坚固的替代方式的寻找当中,制表师找到了一种独具创造性的简便解决方案:格罗斯曼表带上链系统可令佩戴者通过旋转位于表壳“6点钟”位置的表带固定装置为腕表上链,着实为一项简便的上链机制。表带上链装置为表主提供了充分的自由度,拿捏轻松,仅通过数次旋转便可为腕表上满链,舒适度极佳,而且对于较小的表款优势明显。佩戴者一眼便可通过表带固定装置醒目的固定杆与调节表冠的独特位置识别出格罗斯曼表带上链机制。针对这项卓越的开发结晶,泰芙努特腕表的表壳获得了改造。102.2型机芯同样包含众多创新。三款清晰简约的表款“华贵”、“经典”与“经典绅士”采用玫瑰金或白金表壳材质,令外观与其机械核心一样脱颖而出。

PURE WATCHMAKING ARTISTRY SINCE 1854

Two new manufacture calibres with the Pure Classic Finish debut at Baselworld

Founded in 2008, the manufacture is dedicated to the aesthetics and functionality of precision instruments crafted in Glashütte in the 19th century. Moritz Grossmann’s ideas remain inspiring to this very day. His essay „On the construction of a simple but mechanically perfected watch“ still reflects the zeitgeist of our era.

The Pure Classic Finish is another historic facet that Grossmann is bringing to life: Moritz Grossmann applied various finishes to his chronograph movements, thus changing their looks. In highly diverse variations, they also reflect different concepts. Grossmann is now pursuing this tradition with a second finissage approach: The Pure Classic Finish focuses on horological details in design and craftsmanship. It concentrates on function and on the aesthetic appeal of materials. Two specially conceived manufacture calibres stand out in the new steel versions of the ATUM and TEFNUT model families. Combining cool steel and puristic reduction, the ATUM Pure, the ATUM Pure M, and the TEFNUT Pure embody Grossmann’s philosophy in perfection: pure watchmaking artistry since 1854.

René Pape and Moritz Grossmann: “Pure Gold” meets “Pure Watchmaking Artistry”

When René Pape first visited the Moritz Grossmann manufacture in August 2014, a bond was forged. The extremely versatile artist discovered Moritz Grossmann, the eminent watchmaker, perfectionist, and visionary who had a successful international debut in the 19th century with his trailblazing horological developments and became one of the most celebrated personalities in the watchmaking town of Glashütte.

Like Moritz Grossmann, René Pape is a native of Dresden. He pursued his talent and his passion, underwent training as an operatic bass in Dresden, and became a member of the Berlin Staatsoper Unter den Linden in 1988.

As a member of the Berlin ensemble, René Pape embodies all great bass roles. Additionally, he performs regularly in major opera houses, international concert halls, and opera festivals. Pape masters all the nuances of his discipline and is globally acclaimed for his talent.

“Pure Gold – René Pape … an artist who thrills his audiences with charisma, intelligence, and a one-in-a-million voice: the luxurious timbre of Pape’s supple, expressive bass is unmistakable. Its velvety, dark-brown texture shot with ear-catching flashes of brightness.” (Opera News)

He is the recipient of many international music awards, among them two Grammys (1998 and 2003) as well as the ECHO Classic for his solo CD “Gods, Kings and Demons” in 2009.

René Pape stands by his roots: “I never left Dresden.” When the Dresden Frauenkirche was inaugurated in November 2005, he sang with the chorus of the Saxon State Opera. He is a regular guest at the Semper Opera House. And he enjoys spending his spare time at his house in Dresden. For René Pape, origin is an emotional concept. For Moritz Grossmann, it is the foundation of a vision: Origin of a new time.

We are proud of René Pape’s enthusiasm for new-generation Grossmann watchmaking ingenuity. The fine art of singing touches a chord with the tradition art of precision horology. At the end of June 2015, René Pape will take possession of his white-gold BENU Power Reserve in Glashütte.

We cordially welcome a new friend into the fold of the Moritz Grossmann family and eagerly look forward to upcoming onstage appearances.

The German watch manufacturer opened the first boutique in Tokyo

The German luxury watch brand Moritz Grossmann from Glashütte has opened the first boutique in Tokyo (Koishikawa). In the premises of a former printing house, in an area of about 100 square meters and seven meters ceiling height, attended the architects and interior designers with their plans for a spacious feel.
The ambience of the boutique has delightfully harmonious colors and subtle lighting. For the interior designers the feel-good factor was very important for making the stay of customers an experience. A restored Heidelberg printing machine is reminiscent of the former printing company, but also old watchmaker tools have been integrated in the design of the rooms. Hanging gardens in the entrance harmonize with the cherry blossoms at Harimazaka Avenue.
The brand MORITZ GROSSMANN GLASHÜTTE I/SA was founded in 2008 in Glashütte and revives the tradition of craftsmanship by Moritz Grossmann. The young company focuses on its deep value and superior craftsmanship. Even the hands of the watch are produced in the manufactory. In 2010, Moritz Grossmann has introduced the first model BENU. There are now four models in the program. All watches are available in the newly opened boutique in Tokyo.

Christine Hutter (CEO Grossmann Uhren GmbH) in an interview at the opening of Moritz Grossmann boutique in Tokyo:

Why have you opened a boutique in Tokyo Koishikawa?

Christine Hutter (CEO Grossmann Uhren GmbH): „Japan is a very important market in the watch industry. The opening of the boutique is an important milestone in the development of this market. Therefore, we are very proud that we found Mr. Koichi Kudo as a trusted partner. Together with us he will build up the brand MORITZ GROSSMANN GLASHÜTTE I / SA in Japan. With the opening of the new boutique in Tokyo, we have entered a new phase of our development. The boutique reflects the architecture and interior design philosophy and spirit of our manufactory. In Tokyo we were looking for a suitable address in the districts of Ginza, Aoyama or Nihonbashi. There you will find the most luxury stores. But Moritz Grossmann is new in Japan, so we decided to start in an exceptional area. In a place that fits to our brand. In Tokyo / Koishikawa we have found such a place, because you can still find plenty of tradition from the Edo period. The watches of Moritz Grossmann have also a great tradition – just as the flair of Koishikawa.“

What are the future plans?

Christine Hutter: „For us, a vision came true, because when we have launched the company Moritz Grossmann in 2008, we can not imagine that we are already at this point today. Within six years, we have built a fully functioning production process and a manufactory in Glashütte. We have four watch models -including the BENU-tourbillon developed and produced. We are building up an international distribution network and we will present two new watches at the Baselworld 2015. We have achieved a lot, but there is still much for us to do. We will implement thoughtful and go step by step.“

In memory of Moritz Grossmann

Moritz Grossmann died 130 years ago, on 23 January 1885 at the age of 58 years, surprisingly after a lecture in Leipzig. His death sparked great sorrow. In the newspapers, numerous articles have been published in which his merits were acknowledged.
On February 26, 1885, he was brought out of the Pathological Institute for Dresden railway station, to transfer him by train via Dresden and Mügeln (Heidenau) to Glashütte. Funeral Music by Ludwig van Beethoven accompanied the mouring guests through the town to the cemetery. Overall, it should have been more than 1000 mourners.
An appreciation received Grossmann nearly three years after his death: In the title logo of German watchmaking newspaper a seated female allegory of horology has two plaques with the names of the most important national and international watchmaker. In the first issue of the year 1888, the list of names of the heroes of watchmaking was added with the name Moritz Grossmann. So he is standing in a row with Christiaan Huyghens, George Graham, Thomas Earnshaw, Abraham Louis Bréguet, Ferdinand Berthoud und Edward Dent, Urban Juergensen, Heinrich Johann Kessels, Adolph Lange and Friedrich Tiede.
Since 2008, his name and his legacy live on. With the establishment of Grossmann Uhren GmbH watchmaker Christine Hutter went to the heritage of Moritz Grossmann. Today, forty-six specialists are developing and manufacturing masterpieces that meet the demands and the philosophy of Moritz Grossmann justice.

René Pape visits the Moritz Grossmann watch manufactory

On Wednesday, 27 August 2014, famous opera singer René Pape visited the Moritz Grossmann manufacture in Glashütte. The Dresden native ranks among the world’s most celebrated bass artists. His career milestones include performances at prestigious opera houses, dozens of classic albums, and several Grammy and ECHO awards.

Moritz Grossmann founder and CEO Christine Hutter accompanied the famous guest on a tour through the manufacture and gave him first-hand insights into the watchmaking artistry for which it has won acclaim. Amazed by these impressions, René Pape drew a comparison with the stage “An artistically immaculate performance requires the perfect interaction of all members of the ensemble,” he said. “The same applies to a movement: a unique timepiece like a Moritz Grossmann is unthinkable unless all individual parts interact perfectly,” the artist added.

Opera buffs who want to experience René Pape’s voice will have to travel to New York. For several weeks starting end of September 2014, he will be performing in Macbeth and in The Magic Flute at the Metropolitan Opera in Manhattan.
