Moritz Grossmann – ATUM Enamel Gold Special Edition


















Moritz GrossmannATUM Enamel Gold Special Edition - 2017

Its hallmark: Roman numerals on a white enameled dial

In all of its versions, the ATUM line embodies pure watchmaking artistry. Each model presents a special and inimitable accent. To welcome the dawn of 2017, Grossmann is presenting the ATUM Enamel with an extravagant dial design

The two-part dial has a white enamel face. The scales and numerals are printed in black. The Roman numeral XII is printed in royal blue to match the strap. Enameled dials were common hallmarks of precious pocket watches and remain very rare features of wristwatches. Connoisseurs appreciate the unique gloss of enamel that cannot be imitated by any lacquering method. The hands are manually crafted and annealed to a rare brown-violet hue.
