Moritz Grossman Atum Enamel
February 17, 2017
This month Glashutte based watchmaker Moritz Grossman announced a new time only limited edition watch that features a unique movement that has some of the brand’s proprietary technology inside and is finished to perfection, as well as a beautiful enamel dial.
On the front, the two-part fire baked white enamel dial of the Atum Enamel has the scales and numerals printed in black, with the exception of the Roman numeral XII which is printed in royal blue to match the strap, and distinctive Assegai-shaped hour and minute hands (like you see from Laurent Ferrier) that are manually crafted from steel, and then annealed to a brown-violet hue.
Driving the three-hands, and visible through a sapphire caseback, is a manually wound movement with the brand’s signature Grossmann winder with a pusher that allows the movement to be wound by pushing a button that is located just below the crown (at 4 o’clock), instead of having to turn the crown.
The 3/4 plate German silver is quite beautiful with Glashutte striping on the bridges, frosting on the main plate, bevelled edges, three screwed gold chatons, a hand engraved balance bridge, and violet-colored screws.
Manually wound MG caliber 100.1 beats at 2.5Hz (18,000 vph), has 20 jewels, and a total of 198 components. The power reserve is 42-hours. And in addition to the unique Grossmann winder with pusher mechanism, the movement, which measures 36.4 mm x 5.0 mm, has a large 14.2 mm proprietary Grossman balance wheel and poising screws.
The Atum Enamel case measures 41 mm x 11.35 mm and is available in white or rose gold, limited to 25 pieces each. (ref. MG02.B-02-A000804 - rose gold, MG02.B-02-A000807 - white gold) Learn more at Moritz Grossman.
