UNCOMPROMISING NEW CONSTRUCTION

The Blue Sensation is a wristwatch full of classic extravagance. Thanks to the masterful skeletonization, engraving, and guilloche techniques applied by hand, it has received a unique and detailed appearance. The high art of horology that this movement exacted from its original developers was once again put to the test 125 years later. The restoration and embellishment of each and every component as well as the modification needed to achieve the regulator display is equal to a highly complex new construction with all of its challenges. And its success depended highly on the specialized artists versed in the art of individualized wristwatches at Grieb & Benzinger.
