Grail Watch 9.2: Moritz Grossmann × Kari Voutilainen Benu 37 Rose Gold ‘Golden Age’

$46,300.00 USD
Following the incredible response to our previous collaboration with Moritz Grossmann — the Benu 37 Stainless Steel “German Silver” — we return to Glashütte for another stunning creation, Grail Watch 9.2: Moritz Grossmann × Kari Voutilainen Benu 37 Rose Gold. This limited edition of three Benu 37mm watches features the same dazzling untreated German silver guilloché à main Kari Voutilainen dial, this time encased in rose gold.The remarkable dial is made from the durable alloy of copper, nickel, and zinc known as maillechort, or German Silver in English. German Silver is remarkable in that it will softly patina over time, meaning that these three pieces, which began life as identical watches, will evolve into pièces unique, thanks to the soft honey patina of aged maillechort. The material isn’t the only thing that makes these dials remarkable. They’ve been crafted on vintage rose engine machines at Kari Voutilainen’s dial factory, Comblémine.
To complement the dials, the manually winding caliber of this watch boasts a soft frosted finish, hand bevels and hand-engraved details. While the earlier 'German Silver’ model was cased in stainless steel, this model features a warm rose gold case. The Benu model was first launched in 2010 and, with its in-house movement, is a foundational watch for the Moritz Grossmann of today. This exceptional timepiece is produced in a very limited run of 3 pieces.

A Dial of Dreams

Not only does the German silver dial promise to develop a distinctive personality of its own over time, but thanks to the complex array of guilloché techniques, it’s a dial that demonstrates just how impressive the vast array of vintage rose engine machines at Kari Voutilainen’s dial factory, Comblémine actually are. The applied hour markers and Breguet-style numerals at 9, 12 and 3 are the finishing touches on this very special dial.

German Engineering

Powered by the manual-winding caliber 102.1, this watch exemplifies everything that makes German watchmaking so special. The strong three-fifths plate is traditionally German, as is the hand-engraved escape wheel and balance cock with heat-purpled screws.

Making a Case for Perfection

Our latest limited edition is based on the Moritz Grossman Benu — a model first launched in 2010, and one which upholds the values of classical watchmaking. Not only is the silhouette flawlessly smooth, but the overall case width of 37mm is perfect for modern sensibilities.

Comfort and Style

Given that the German silver dial will change over time, it’s only fitting to add a strap to match. The soft brown Kudu leather strap is supple and instantly comfortable, with a worn-in patina that makes this watch feel right at home on the wrist.
