When it comes to new releases, 2022 introduces a variety of models that experiment with colors. We saw an array of bold shades and subtle hues that created renewed looks for classics and enchanting new introductions.
German luxury manufacturing Moritz Grossmann One of the brands that experiment with color in its designs. Earlier this year, the brand, known for its commitment to traditional finishing techniques and high-end genuine calibers, introduced a variant of the central seconds adorned with a purple sunray brushed dial.
A new addition to the Moritz Grossmann catalog of colorful designs The date is turquoise. The watch features an eye-catching guilloche pattern on the stunning watch dial in an eponymous color.
Created by renowned independent watch artist Kari Voutilainen in Val-de-Travers, Switzerland in collaboration with dial manufacture Camblemain, the iridescent pattern on the main dial and subsidiary seconds is almost mesmerizing.
The very fine grooves on the textured dial are polished to a high gloss using diamond, creating attractive reflections of light on the surface. Depending on the angle at which the light falls, it creates a dynamic interplay of subtle turquoise shades reminiscent of tiny waves in sunlight. The lance-shaped hands are handcrafted and finished in the manufactory and blued to compliment the cool-toned colorway.
To give this artisanal dial maximum surface area, the hour markers and indexes are placed on a small ring on its edge. There is much more to discover, as the jumping pointer placed on the perimeter by Moritz Grossmann bears the date. This is not a pointer date in the traditional sense, but rather a bracket-shaped marker indicating the date.
In typical Moritz Grossmann style, the reverse side reveals an unobstructed view of the top-line manufacture movement, thanks to a sapphire pane behind the stainless steel case. Finished to the highest standards, the caliber 100.3 with Grossman balance, ratchet wheel with 3-band sailing and hand-carved cantilevered balance cock with regulator arm offers a stunning display of color and craftsmanship. Hand-annealed screws in violet strike a precise but subtle harmony with shades of German silver, steel and gold.
The Moritz Grossmann Date Turquoise is limited to 18 pieces worldwide and costs approximately $43,000 when converted to USD. The watch is completed with a hand stitched strap made of black alligator leather.
