2014 is coming to an end, and I’m so surprised that I have missed such a stunning watch released this year. It’s the Grieb & Benzinger Blue Merit Customized A. Lange & Sohne Tourbillon Pour le Merite Watch
Grieb & Benzinger got their hands on a single or it had been most likely a customer who gave them the Tourbillon Pour le Merite and request these to enjoy it. The very first factor they did was take away the Lange caliber L902. movement in the case after which proceeded to totally go apart. As the original watch includes a 38.5mm wide case in platinum, nowhere Merit utilizes a new case (and in platinum) that’s 41mm wide – that is really around the more compact side for Grieb & Benzinger watches.
A. Lange & Sohne uses an alloy known as German Silver for many of their movement parts instead of steel. Nonetheless, Grieb & Benzinger plates the majority of the movement parts in rhodium and rose gold. Other areas, for example newer and more effective bridges, were covered with blue platinum. It makes sense an incredible to behold and delightful transformation right into a typically decorated thing of beauty built on probably the most exclusive movements of 1 of present day most exclusive watchmakers. Both front and back from the movement would be the very epitome of the items Germany Grieb & Benzinger do best, using the mechanical first step toward the very best German luxury watch company.
The procedure from turning the initial movement into this amazingly skeletonized and engraved creation required in regards to a year, and involved a fragile metamorphosis that involved almost every individual part. You will find basically three primary decorative processes that entered nowhere Merit movement. First is hand-skeletonization, which involved cutting bridges and gears apart into skeletonized parts. The second reason is hand-engraving, which involved decoration from the parts, and third is coloring.
The characteristics from the movement within the watch count observing. A. Lange & Sohne built about this movement to include more complication later, but from the beginning, the Tourbillon Pour le Merite was spectacular. Additionally, it showed up at any given time when tourbillon complications remained as very uncommon. The tourbillon was combined with a fusee & chain style transmission, and also the dial had time with subsidiary seconds dial in addition to a power reserve indicator. In lots of ways, it had been a design in front of it is time. Besides the distinctive Lange-style tourbillon cage, little from the changed movement indicates it had become a Lange to basically individuals most abundant in honed eyes. Nowhere Merit watch even features new hands and subdial designs.
Like the majority of platinum Grieb & Benzinger watches nowhere Merit in platinum is matched up to some blue alligator strap and once more is really a piece unique creation.
This Grieb & Benzinger customized watch, unlike the usual one, it add new elements. Personally, I think it’s very gorgeous and ornate.
