Moritz Grossmann - BENU Anniversary models

One of the most eminent representatives of German watchmaking, Karl Moritz Grossmann lived from 1826 to 1885 in the Saxon town of Glashütte devoting his entire life to horology and creating exceptional pocket watches, chronometers, and precision pendulum clocks. Unfortunately, after his unexpected death at the age of 60 in 1885, Grossmann’s manufacture was liquidated.

In 2008, watchmaker Christine Hutter secured the trademark rights to Moritz Grossmann and founded Grossmann Uhren GmbH in Glashütte to reinterpret, with modern technology and updated for today's market, the rich heritage that had been dormant for 120 years.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary, the Moritz Grossmann manufacture is presenting three limited edition BENU models: the BENU Anniversary, two enamel pieces with a limitation of 10 pieces in platinum and 10 in white gold, and the BENU Anniversary Lost in Space, an eccentric hybrid piece, limited to 26 pieces.


The two BENU Anniversary have unusual dark-coloured, grand-feu enamel dials sitting within 41 mm pale cases in precious metals.

The dial enamelling technique is very demanding (a single dial calls for many hours of work) but it guarantees exceptional qualities, such as the unalterable intensity of its colour over time as well as a unique surface appearance.

For the platinum case, the dial is executed in deep blue – an unusual enamel colour that demands exceptional dexterity to be produced.


The white gold version has a more classic black dial with a fascinating surface gloss.


The clean white Arabic numerals and polished stainless steel hands make each watch very clean to read.

Both models have a display back that showcases the calibre 100.1. The hand-engraved balance cock is crafted in pure gold instead of the usual German silver.


The antireflective sapphire-crystal back reveals the hand-wound 100.1 manufacture calibre performing 18,000 semi-oscillations per hour. The curved, milled cutout of the German silver 2/3 plate, a typical Grossmann hallmark, puts the spotlight on the hand-engraved balance cock crafted in pure gold instead of the usual German silver.

The third anniversary watch - the BENU ‘Lost in Space’ - is an unexpected combination of the small calibre 102.0 with a diameter of merely 26.0 mm and the case from the rose gold BENU Tourbillon, diameter 44.5 mm.


The 2.5 Hz (18,000 vph) movement sits behind a hand-cut engraved dial depicting the moon, floating off-centre within the case. Two sub-dials in contrasting grand-feu enamels sit on the moon’s surface.


The hour and minute display, in BENU styling, is placed centrally in radiant white enamel. A small seconds dial in contrasting black enamel face sits at 7 o’clock.

The calibre is attached to the case in a movement holder ring at the position of the winding crown and stabilised by four struts. These struts bridge the height difference between the case periphery and the movement holder ring with curved lines that resemble an architectural support structure.


The Moritz Grossmann BENU ‘Lost in Space’ is available in a 26-piece limited edition, commemorating the passage of time since Moritz Grossmann’s birth in 1826. grossmann-uhren.com
