BENU Anniversary

Back

Moritz Grossmann Glashütte I/SA from 2008 to 2018. The manufacture’s first ten years justify a special edition of the BENU, the initial model of the new era. In the year 2018, its first decade, Moritz Grossmann celebrates the beauty of pure watchmaking artistry as a keynote topic.

The BENU Anniversary kicks off the theme with two watches of exceptional beauty in exclusive limited editions: BENU Anniversary Platinum and BENU Anniversary White Gold.

Highlights

With its classic personality, the BENU is predestined tohave a luxurious sibling with an enameled dial. In par- ticular, the full grand-feu enamel face in dark colours is rare and calls for the ultimate in artisanship. The specific surface gloss will make every watch enthusiast’s heartskip a beat.

The platinum version is paired with a very rare blue enamel face. On the 750/000 white-gold version, the dial stands out with grand-feu enamel in black. The display back reveals the calibre 100.1 with the High-Artistic finish as well as a special highlight: for this edition, the hand-engraved balance cock is crafted in gold instead of in German silver as usual. The exclusive limitation of the BENU Anniversary to ten in platinum and ten in white gold makes this timepiece a coveted collector’s item.
