Win a letter opener in the shape of our fine hands

Precision: our own fingers made these hands. They are the pinnacle of artisanship. We are proud to craft our hands entirely by hand in our manufactory. As a tribute to this special feature, we have produced a fine letter opener that is shaped like our INDEX hands.

#competition Find out how you can call the letter opener your own, and have your name engraved on it. Have a look at the end of this newsletter.

Special edition for the Emirates Watch Club

Especially for the Emirates Watch Club, an exclusive association of collectors from the United Arab Emirates, Moritz Grossmann has launched a limited EWC special edition of only twelve pieces. This is in cooperation with our local retail partner Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons in Dubai.

The dial of the model is a tribute to Schönstes deutsches Handwerk that goes into each of Grossmann’s timepieces. Like the calibre 100.1 with its fine cuts and polishes, the dial of the new model is made of German silver. The numerals and the Moritz Grossmann logo are hand-engraved.

With the EWC model, which is available exclusively to members of the Emirates Watch Club, the manufacture once again demonstrates its flexibility and craftsmanship in realising limited special series and personalised models.

DATE – Patent for jumping date display

#patent #datedisplay

Our independent manufactory takes innovative approaches to integrate useful functions with unique design twists to create unique and often individual pieces of art. We have already acquired several patents for creating innovative new functions. Now we are proud of receiving yet another patent for the jumping date display of our DATE.

The jumping date combines precise legibility with mechanical ingenuity and a rare degree of convenience. A full date scale from 1 to 31 and the exceptionally shaped date hand in the form of a bracket marker emphasise the elegance and functionality of our DATE model. The date can be corrected forwards and backwards at any time, while the movement continues to run.

The highlight: the time and date can also be adjusted immediately before midnight and directly afterwards. A jumper spring causes the date ring with the marker to precisely engage in the selected position.

A correction of the date, for example at the end of the month, is made via the separate setting crown at “10” o’clock. This crown is not active in the normal position and prevents inadvertent adjustments. To set the date, the crown is pulled out. The movement continues to run and the date can be set by turning it in both directions.

The date indication, a complication coveted and often discussed by watch enthusiasts, is a comparatively recent development in the long history of precision watchmaking. The first wristwatches with an analogue date were only introduced in the early 20th century.
