Moritz Grossmann's new model, CENTRAL SECOND (shown here in the 25 piece limited edition Salmon dial), pays tribute to the technological and social significance of this unit of time.

The striking Central Second brings together 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 functions simply perfectly. In doing so, the manufactory once again recalls the spirit of its namesake and grand master of the Glashütte art of watchmaking, Moritz Grossmann. In his treatise written back in the 19th century, the exceptional watchmaker and founder of the German School of Watchmaking (1878) described how to construct a simple but mechanically perfect watch.  

The limited edition Central Second salmon dial is comprised of manually crafted hands made from steel blued over an open flame to form a wonderfully sophisticated contrast to the dial in a handsome salmon hue. Like the blue version it's powered by the new calibre 100.11. The force of the mainspring is transferred from the third wheel to the new central second wheel via an additional intermediate wheel in the center of the movement, keeping the second hand rotating in the center of the dial.
