Grieb & Benzinger, the German haute horlogerie house that specializes in skeletonized chronographs, have made dreams come true for a very few incredibly lucky women. Until very recently, Grieb & Benzinger only made men’s watches; however, in the summer of this year a Russian businesswoman who became enamored of the stunning skeletonized Blossom timepiece got wind of the luxury watchmaker’s bespoke service.
After a few phone calls, thanks to the businesswoman’s insistence, Grieb & Benzinger enthusiastically realized a feminine version of the Blossom was a must. The classic Blossom is the only watch on the market and in the world that is completely skeletonized, engraved by hand, and guilloche. The Pearl Blossom for women features a 43 mm red gold case which is set with 2.55 ct. Top Wesselton diamonds; a mother-of-pearl creamy-colored alligator leather strap ties the look together with elegance and practicality.
The watch is also fully skeletonized like its predecessor, the Blossom, and the skeletonization is done in a striking floral pattern. The fully hand engraved, guilloche movement has also been skeletonized and was completely blackened by hand. The timepiece also has an 18 ct. gold buckle on the strap to complete the look of the feminine dream. One of these exceptional time pieces can be yours for €38,500 before taxes in Germany or about $48,995 before applicable taxes.
The men’s version of the watch, the Black Tulip Blossom, was created last year at the special request of a U.S. popular entertainer and costs €33,900 before taxes in Germany or approximately $43,165 pre-tax.
