Moritz Grossmann DEVEL 16 Limited Edition

German luxury watch manufacture Grossmann has created a new DEVEL 16 timepiece after the successful presentation of the GMT and the TEFNUT 1001 Nights with golden Milanaise bracelet in Dubai.

With its 5000 horsepower, the 16- cylinder record-breaking Devel Sixteen is currently the most powerful hypercar in the world. The independent Glashütte watch manufactory Moritz Grossmann and the company – Defining Extreme Vehicles Car Industry – from Dubai present the new DEVEL 16 watch.

The founder and CEO of Grossmann Uhren GmbH, Christine Hutter, together with Devel Motors CEO Majid Al Attar, exclusively announced a cooperation between the two brands, prior to the official opening of the new Devel Motors showroom in Dubai. A DEVEL 16 model will be presented together with the Devel Sixteen sports car in the new Devel Motors showroom in Dubai. The DEVEL 16 watch will soon be available exclusively from Devel Motors.

The Moritz Grossmann DEVEL 16 boasts a blackened stainless steel case. Inspired by the number of cylinders in the Devel Sixteen sports car, there is to be a limited edition of 16 watches. The DEVEL 16 dial is designed in polished stainless steel to match the rim of the Devel Sixteen sports car. The openings between the rim spokes allow a view of the calibre 100.1 in the High Artistic Finish. The surface of the spokes and the rim edge appears immaculate due to the mirror polishing.

Depending on the viewing angle, it either shines black or reflects the light like as a mirror would. A yellow Devel Motors logo graces the subsidiary seconds on a black background with a fine yellow border. The yellow stitching of the black leather wristband matches the colour in perfect harmony.

The striking indices on the blackened stainless steel outer dial ring are filled with grey Hy-Ceram, accentuating the sporty elegance of the timepiece. The lance shaped hands, filled with black Hy-Ceram, further enhance the watch’s refined appearance.

The Moritz Grossmann brand manufactures mechanical timepieces to the highest standard of craftsmanship. The independent manufactory has once again demonstrated its openness to new creative designs and a sporty, elegant touch with the new DEVEL 16 watch.
