The luxury watch manufacturer, Grieb & Benzinger, unveiled two amazing platinum timepieces: the CENTURION and the jeweled CENTURION IMPERIAL both intended for watch aficionados that share the same passion for the skeleton watches.
As we got used to from Grieb&Benziger’s, these newcomers are inspired by an ambitious watch connoisseurs looking for incredible skeleton wristwatches that bring together value and handcrafts in an unpretentious way.
This interesting collectors’ request inspired the brand`s CEO and creative whirlwind Georg Bartkowiak to transfer the Grieb & Benzinger’s bestseller ― the BLACK TULIP ―into a never-seen-before platinum execution. The classic BLACK TULIP already delightful as it is, has been transformed into the enchanting, yet simultaneously understated, high-end watch featuring an all-black appearance.
The value of solid Platinum (PT950) case below a blackened surface in combination with pure hand-skeletonization appealed to this client’s ideal of discreet taste. A German based high-end watch atelier then combined this muted look with an expressive, striking bezel pavé-set with 66 red diamonds in the exclusive Princess cut to create a second timepiece, the Centurion Imperial.
This newcomer is equipped with the blackened manually wound movement and is completely skeletonized with guilloche engraved by hand. Its solid platinum case measures 43mm in diameter and is teamed with a black alligator leather strap, ending with a solid platinum PT950 blackened buckle. The only difference between the CENTURION and the jeweled CENTURION IMPERIAL is a bezel set with six red Princess-cut diamonds.
The latest additions to Grieb & Benzinger’s ever-growing catalogue of high-end watches represent some other breathtakingly unique collector’s items that confirm the brand’s special position within the intimate sphere of luxury timepieces.
