The creation of the marvelously luxurious and detailed unique watches requires many hours of dedicated work that often involves heavy amounts of skeletonization as well as engraving of specific figurines.
This year, the company is proud to present its one-of-a-kind Blue Wave watch, which will become a cherished possession of only one lucky collector.
The new Grieb & Benzinger watch features an impressive 46 mm case, rendered in 18-karat rose gold. The same metal is employed in manufacturing of the winding crown and button. The top of the last-mentioned element is adorned with a guilloche motif. Both front and back sides of the case are fitted with high-grade sapphire crystals.
The interior life of the watch is represented by an exclusive Minerva mono-pusher column wheel mechanical chronograph movement.
It is skeletonized, engraved and guilloched by hand in the watchmaker’s best traditions. Hand-skeletonized to its bare minimum in the wave style inherent to the brand, the base plate is treated with a blue platinum coating.
The mechanism also incorporates a hand-skeletonized spring barrel, which works to deliver a stable power for 37-hour full autonomy. Embellished with 17 jewels, this caliber operates at a frequency of 18,000 vibrations per hour.
The owner of the exclusive Grieb & Benzinger Blue Wave watch will be able to admire rhodium-plated and finely guilloched bridges, rhodium and rose gold-finished hand-engraved balance cock, rose gold-plated wheels as well as flame-blued steel screws.
This movement serves to animate the functions, which are immediate and clear on a hand-skeletonized sterling silver dial, graced with original Breguet frosted finish.
The display comprises a 30-minute chronograph counter, located at 3 o’clock. It is equipped with a flame-blued hand, featuring a red tip. The subsidiary seconds tick away in a 9 o’clock counter, which ensures the symmetry of the dial. This counter is also endowed with a slender flame-blued hand.
Taking care of hours, minutes and seconds are elegant centralized hands, crafted from rose gold-plated steel.
A black alligator leather strap, finalized by an 18-karat rose gold buckle, rounds off the mind-blowing design of the new Grieb & Benzinger watch.
