One of the few women to excel in the male-dominated world of high-end wristwatches, Christine Hutter has long loved the exceptional work of German watchmaker Moritz Grossmann. In fact, she admired Grossmann’s work so much that she acquired legal rights to the Moritz Grossmann brand name in 2008 and produced the first watch from Glashutte’s independent Moritz Grossmann factory in 2010.
To commemorate the release of the inaugural watch under her ownership, the company presented its new Power Reserve Vintage at July’s Moritz Grossmann Roadshow in London. This timepiece pays tribute to a watchmaking tradition that dates back hundreds of years with typography and original logo from 1875 and extremely slender hands that reflect the design of 19th century Moritz Grossmann pocket watches.
This manually-wound calibre 100.2 timepiece also features a cantilevered balance cock with Grossmann micrometer screw and a distinctive power reserve indicator in blue and white. Customers can order the Moritz Grossmann Power Reserve Vintage in either rose gold or white gold.
