Blue Merit – A new Platinum Masterpiece

Blue Merit – A new Platinum Masterpiece

GRIEB & BENZINGER proudly presents its 2014 spring top highlight: the BLUE MERIT, a tourbillon based on the famous, rare, and sought-after Tourbillon Pour le Mérite by A. Lange & Söhne. It took twelve months to transform the original timepiece into its final breathtaking form, one that is very characteristic of GRIEB & BENZINGER’s signature style. As the GRIEB & BENZINGER team journeyed to the edge of what is technically possible to modify the movement, it naturally took the artisans’ full attention and horological experience. Numerous details once again confirm that the complicated masterpieces of GRIEB & BENZINGER are more objets d’art than watches. With its solid 41 mm platinum case in typical GRIEB & BENZINGER style, the BLUE MERIT is another breathtakingly unique collector’s item that confirms the brand’s special position within the intimate sphere of luxury wristwatches.

GRIEB & BENZINGER Area 51 – Out of this World

GRIEB & BENZINGER  Area 51 – Out of this World

Earlier this year, a very unusual request arrived at our workshop from a customer who already owns several GRIEB & BENZINGER timepieces. As his son is a huge fan of aliens and space, his personal wish was to receive an alien-themed watch along the lines of the Area 51 legend realized for him by use of our famous horological techniques. Using well-known Hollywood movies featuring extraterrestrials as a model, the challenging project was realized using materials that allowed for a metalized liquid appearance.

Thanks to the extreme talent of our goldsmith, the final result looks unusual and amazing to say the least. Three-dimensional aliens with metalized surfaces and ruby-set eyes against a backdrop of a grey moon-surface dial with craters set with diamonds open a new era of our customer design.

The back of the watch displays the mechanical movement with in-house modifications like all our watches created in traditional craftsmanship. This movement is also blackened and continues the extraterrestrial theme: three-dimensional planets – of course prominently including Mother Earth – are set on the bridges providing an impression of the depths of space.

Housed in a solid 18K palladium white gold case and secured using an extra-short strap with red stitching, this Area 51 watch will ensure its future owner, a 12-year-old boy lucky to have a loving father to fulfill his horological dream, has a smile on his face. The price of the watch?… Finite, but the price of the smile is something that money cannot buy.
