To mark its fourteenth anniversary, Moritz Grossmann presents the limited edition HAMATIC Vintage Cream

Fourteen years ago, the Moritz Grossmann manufactory was founded by Christine
Hutter in Glashütte, thus reviving the name of this remarkable watchmaker. In celebration of this special anniversary, the manufactory presents the perfect combination of aesthetics and mechanics in the form of the limited edition HAMATIC Vintage Cream. While the cream-colored dial in vintage style is reminiscent of the historic watches made by Moritz Grossmann, the violet numerals and hands act as a link to the movement. Violet-annealed screws are just some of the elaborate decorations incorporated into the in-house manufactory calibre – a hallmark of Moritz Grossmann's craftsmanship.

A limited edition of 25 pieces

With its expressive vintage character, the watch embodies good, traditional
craftsmanship and the work of Moritz Grossmann himself, who was famous for his
pocket watches during his lifetime. His style influenced the dial design of the
anniversary watch with its classic white gold case, the nostalgic typography of the
Roman hour numerals and the historic Moritz Grossmann logo from 1875. The cream tone of the dial, which is made from solid silver and is lacquered, only serves
to emphasize the charm of this watch.

A further homage to the old master is the fine poiré-shaped hands, just like the
ones Moritz Grossmann once used for his pocket watches. The hands are still made
painstakingly by hand in the manufactory, which is unusual even in the world of
haute horology. They are then annealed by hand, giving them an expressive violet
hue. The dial print in the same shade emphasizes the effect of the hands.
And the color creates a link to the movement of the HAMATIC Vintage Cream: in
addition to artistic cuts and surface finishes, the elaborate finishing on the highly
refined manufactory calibre 106.0 also includes the screws annealed in a violet
shade. They match the dial perfectly.

The construction of the movement also impresses as it incorporates the traditional
automatic hammer mechanism from the 19th century and generates energy by
means of a moving hammer rather than the rotor that is usual with an automatic
movement. It is triggered by the arm movements of the wearer, gliding back and
forth like a pendulum and thereby winding the movement. This newly developed
hammer winding mechanism is bidirectional and equipped with a highly efficient
and reliable mechanism that has two click wheels. The construction also facilitates
an intriguing view of the movement. The classic, refined white gold case of the anniversary watch HAMATIC Vintage Cream is worn on a strap made from black alligator leather and is limited to 25 watches.
