With its new model CENTRAL SECOND, Moritz Grossmann pays tribute to the social and technological significance of the second as a unit of time. While conventionally the small second hand is placed in the six o’clock position in the bottom third of the dial on Grossmann watches, here a large-scale second hand is positioned in the centre of the highly refined dial.
CENTRAL SECOND combines a case made from polished steel with a charmingly elegant feel and superb functionality. Schönstes deutsches Handwerk made in Germany that unites the highest degree of craftsmanship with a mechanism that simply functions perfectly.
Dial in salmon
The manually crafted hands made from steel blued over an open flame form a wonderfully sophisticated contrast to the dial in a salmon hue. With the Moritz Grossmann logo and Made in Germany inscription in black letters, the blue hands and numerals form a harmonious ensemble. All of these elements combined underline the watch’s air of classic understatement.
It is limited to 25 watches worldwide.
