POLARIS Black & White
In spring 2011, the new BENZINGER BOUTIQUE collection by GRIEB & BENZINGER was presented . Since the GRIEB & BENZINGER ateliers virtually meet any individual request, “POLARIS“ was manufactured as “Black & White“ edition on customer‘s request. Another true eye-catcher in a solid 43mm case made of 750/000 rose gold, the “POLARIS Black & White“ once more proves the exclusivity of the GRIEB & BENZINGER time pieces in a market overflowing with mass luxury. The small production volume of about 100 BOUTIQUE watches per year, resulting from the enormous vertical range of manufacture by hand, makes these timepieces so rare and exclusive.

The BENZINGER BOUTIQUE video shows quite impressively how much love for the detail and handicraft is involved in the manufacturing of these watches.

The “POLARIS“ model immediately enthralled all adherers of visual mechanical parts. The characteristic decentralised hour and minute display along with the small seconds display at “six o’clock“, demonstrates exclusivity and technical expertise which is specially produced in the GRIEB & BENZINGER workshops. The complete watch movement is a work of art and displays its beauty on the back as well – guilloché, hand-skeletonizing and hand-engraving as far as the eye can see. This peerless movement finishing is a speciality of GRIEB & BENZINGER. The hand-guilloched, multipiece dial of solid sterling silver shines with golden applications and a white Breguet Frost Finish, a technique which is world-wide exclusively applied by GRIEB & BENZINGER and underlines the timeless classic appearance of the watch.

POLARIS Black & White“ guilloched and partly skeletonized sterling silver dial with white Breguet Frost Finish and appliqued rose gold skeleton dial, semi skeleton movement completely skeletonized by hand, guilloched and engraved, individual movement modification ( hour & minute modification), alligator leather strap with gold clasp. Solid 750/000 rose gold case with 43 mm diameter (price per watch: 33.500 € net // 39.865 € incl. 19% VAT)
