A unique timepiece where the movement has been taken from the back and brought to the dial-side or front of the watch, hence the name “Backpage.” Limited to just 18 pieces worldwide.

In 2008 Moritz Grossmann Uhren GmbH was established in Glashütte, Germany by Christine Hutter (An experienced watchmaker, and sales and marketing professional) who has worked extensively with Wempe, Maurice Lacroix, Glashütte Original, and A. Lange & Sohne.
In the 19th Century Moritz Grossmann was an exceptionally gifted watchmaker who developed technical, beautifully finished timepieces in his workshop in Glashütte.
More than a century later the brand has been revived with the vision of creating bespoke timepieces with an emphasis on limited production, technical innovation, and a very high level of hand craftsmanship.
The Benu Enamel: A stainless steel case with a beautiful enamel dial. Large blue Arabic numerals, and lance style hands with vintage pocket watch aesthetics. Limited to 18 pieces worldwide.

A diverse range of pieces are available in the collection all made to order in very limited quantities. A disclaimer: Pictures simply do not do this brand justice as the attention to detail from the cases, to the dials, and the exquisite movement finishing really needs to be seen in person to truly appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into creating each unique timepiece.

An example of the exquisite movement finishing. Signature features such as a three-quarter plate movement done in untreated German silver (that will develop a golden patina over time). A hand-engraved balance cock, snailing on the mainspring barrel, raised gold chatons, hand annealed screws, broad Glashütte ribbing (or stripes) vertically down the movement, as well as hand-chamfered edges. This degree of finishing really separates the brand from others at this level with very few high-end watchmaking houses that can compete with the very high standard adhered to by all of Moritz Grossmann timepieces that are meticulously created. The timepiece is transformed into something more special at this level, becoming a piece of wearable art. Photo credit: @lordnantucket (Instagram)
