This new creation is the result of inspiration from an ambitious watch connoisseur looking for never-seen-before incredible platinum skeleton watches. This collector request inspired GRIEB & BENZINGER to transfer the BLACK TULIP into a new masterpiece.

Already stunning as it is, the BLACK TULIP has been transformed into a glamorous, yet simultaneously understated, high-end timepiece boasting an all-black appearance: the CENTURION. The idea of the totally understated value of solid Platinum (PT950) beneath

a blackened surface in combination with pure hand-skeletonization appealed to this client’s ideal of discreet taste. A lavish, almost cheeky, way of expressing understatement that is as-yet unmatched in the world of luxury timepieces.


Solid totally blackened platinum PT950 case, screwed-in and hand-guilloché bezel, case diameter 43 mm, black alligator strap with blackened platinum buckle. Centurion Imperial: bezel set with 66 red Princess cut diamonds
