With the new expressive DATE Turquoise variant, the independent manufactory
Moritz Grossmann presents its successful date model in a new, fresh and yet
sophisticated look. The most eye-catching feature of this watch is its beautiful guilloché dial in turquoise. The special edition, which is limited to a run of 18 pieces, was created
in collaboration with exquisite dial manufactory Comblémine by Kari Voutilainen
in Switzerland's Val-de-Travers. The brilliantly iridescent guilloché on the main
dial and subsidiary seconds draw the eye and will lend any outfit a special touch –
exciting, artistic and very, very cool. The new look is completed by the case made
from polished stainless steel, which is another completely new style element for
the DATE.

The guilloché pattern on the dial and solid silver subsidiary seconds are furnished
with a special coating. Depending on the angle the light falls, it creates a dynamic
interplay of subtle turquoise shades that are reminiscent of rays of sun on a
shimmering body of water. The minute scale has been moved slightly inwards, creating space for the complete date scale from 1 to 31. The dial numerals in blue contrast sharply with the light background. The hours and minutes are impressed onto a silver ring in dot form. The combination of the iridescent turquoise of the guilloché and the
case made from stainless steel creates a cohesive overall impression of perfectly
coordinated colors and shapes. The lance-shaped hands of the DATE Turquoise are handcrafted and finished in the manufactory and then annealed in blue to match the circumferential date scale. The blued bracket-shaped date marker is also elaborately crafted by hand.

A unique aspect of the DATE Turquoise is the calibre 100.3 with jumping date
display. It is a combination of precise, legible display and mechanical
sophistication coupled with a high level of convenience. The complete date scale
from 1 to 31 and the unusual bracket shape of the date marker underpin the
elegance and functionality of the DATE Turquoise. One special feature is that the time and date can be adjusted just before midnight and straight after midnight. The hand is positioned exactly on the right date via a click spring. In addition to the precise jumping date display, this date adjustment benefits from the fact that the switching finger does not interfere with the switching wheel except for the jump to the next date, a process that lasts a matter of milliseconds. As such, the date can be adjusted forwards and
backwards at any time while the movement carries on running.

The rear of the watch also offers a striking display of colour thanks to the sapphire
crystal back. The artistically finished calibre 100.3 with the Grossmann balance,
the ratchet wheel with 3-band snailing and the hand-engraved cantilevered
balance cock with regulator arm and Grossmann micrometer screw is a work of
art dedicated to precision. The finest cuts and polishes allow the whole ensemble
to sparkle in a multitude of ways. The screws, annealed by hand in violet, are in
perfect but subtle harmony with the German silver, steel and gold shades. The watch is completed by a fine hand-sewn strap made from black alligator leather.
