Moritz Grossmann – Tefnut
Set up in 2008, the Glashütte-based watch brand Moritz Grossmann takes the name from quite possibly the most capable German watchmaker of his age who set up his own production in 1854 energized by his companion Ferdinand Adolph Lange. Tragically his company shut when he passed on out of the blue in 1885.
The new Tefnut, a dress watch that Moritz Grossman introduced at Baselworld 2015, unmistakably communicates the objective of the brand: making valuable and exquisite watches which combine conventional and present day producing strategies. The name of the item was not picked by chance as, in the antiquated Egyptian folklore, Tefnut is a goddess which represents the tastefulness of the Nubian cat.
The 39 mm instance of the Tefnut is made in rose gold or white gold and has a thickness of simply 8.5 mm on account of the extra thin hand-wound development (3.45 mm). Fluted crown and tightened drags improve the class of the watch.
The two-level silver dial – argentè for the rose gold case and charcoal for the white gold one – is described by somewhat domed gold hour markers, curved Arabic numerals at 6 and 12 o’clock, two physically made hands in treated steel that were made particularly for this model.
The recently evolved type 102.0 is the littlest and most slender Moritz Grossmann development at any point created. In view of the more modest measurement of the equilibrium, the new type beats at a recurrence of 21,600 vibrations each hour. At the point when completely twisted, it offers 48 hours of force save.
Different highlights, average of Moritz Grossmann developments, are the cantilevered offset chicken with the micrometer screw, the raised chatons with their earthy colored violet screws, the independently removable winder module, and the mass-improved Grossmann balance.
The ARCAP (copper-nickel-zinc) composite of the wheels differentiates well against the German-silver development components and guarantees long haul brightness. All etchings and engravings on the 3/5 plate, the fourth-wheel rooster, and the equilibrium cockerel are engraved by hand.
Retail costs of the Moritz Grossmann Tefnut are Euro 22.400 for the rose gold rendition and Euro 24,400 for the white gold model. grossmann-uhren.com
