Grönefeld

BESPOKE 1941 REMONTOIRE

$74,250

INQUIRE

Grönefeld is able to offer a vast choice of coloured and patterned dials. The dials are engine-turned, sometimes referred to as guilloché dials. This process confers each dial with its own unique appearance. To augment the allure of the engine-turned patterns, another even more exclusive technique can be applied, enamelling. The colourful and transparent enamel is applied to the dial surface to bestow a profound depth and lustre to the guilloché patterns.

The words ‘engine turned’ might suggest that a computer-aided machine is used to make the patterns, but nothing is further from the truth. The dials are actually made on a century old machine. Every decorative line is made at very slow speed by deft hand and the skilful precision of a well-trained eye. It actually takes a few days of painstaking and patient effort to produce just one guilloché dial. Bespoke series are available in a Stainless Steel, Red Gold or White Gold case.

After the launch in 2016 the 1941 Remontoire has been awarded 5 times! In November 2016 Grönefeld won again the prestigious Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève award. This time the prize they’ve won was for the best watch in the “Mens Watch” category.
