On 11 November 2008, Christine Hutter founded Grossmann Uhren using the great name of the co-founder of the Glashütte watch industry, Moritz Grossmann. In doing so, she ensured that the legacy of the highly respected watch pioneer was revived after around 130 years. Since 2008, the company has been manufacturing watches to the highest standard of craftsmanship in a classic but at the same time modern design. The day of the anniversary will be crowned by a very special one-off piece. The BENU Anniversary Unique in its luxurious platinum finish is reminiscent of the design of the manufactory’s very first watch model, the BENU.
The deep blue dial of the BENU Anniversary Unique in grand-feu enamel is a rarity that attracts attention with charming determination. Fine Arabic numerals in white give rise to a well-defined contrast. Handcrafted, polished stainless steel hands complete the linear design of this classic watch. Founder and CEO Christine Hutter has personally signed the BENU Anniversary Unique. Her signature is applied in the form of a gold thread in the sapphire crystal back on the rear of the watch. The glass enables a view of the balance cock, which is hand engraved with solid gold.
Moritz Grossmann was a widely respected author who published in several languages. The visionary inspired people throughout Europe and even in United States with his groundbreaking technical writings. Grossmann successfully committed himself to the further development of the Glashütte watch industry by passing on his knowledge to generations of watchmakers without hesitation.
The Moritz Grossmann brand is committed to this pioneering attitude and manufactures timepieces to the highest standard of craftsmanship under the motto “Schönstes deutsches Handwerk”. The BENU Anniversary Unique is offered with the calibre 100.1 in a High-Artistic Finish as a single edition 1 of 1 of the limation 05/10 2008 — 2018.
