Moritz Grossmann ATUM White Brown

Introduced as a unique piece as a part of Moritz Grossmann’s 10th anniversary collection, the ATUM White Brown watch combines classic design elements in white and brown with a stainless steel case and an artistic, hand-finished movement.

A balanced colour scheme and the calibre 100.1 in a high-artistic finish set this watch apart from the crowd. The ATUM White Brown also reflects a feature of the present-day manufactory – the striking use of steel annealed in brown.

The colour scheme is mirrored in the markers and hands alongside the alligator leather strap. Inside the movement, the screws in their gold chatons, the regulating nut and the back bushing are also annealed in brown by hand. The ATUM White Brown is offered with the calibre 100.1 in an artistic hand finish as a single edition 1 of 1.
