German watchmaker Moritz Grossmann Glashutte who is giving the Swiss German watchmakers a run for their money, presented a three-minute tourbillon with stop seconds during the recently concluded Doha Jewelry and Watch Exhibition (DJWE). This is the fourth timepiece, the Benu Tourbillon which demonstrates the brand’s horological precision, efficiency, and aesthetics.

To underscore the decorative elements of the tourbillon at 6 o’clock consistent with the accurate legibility of a precision timepiece, the seconds and hours are displayed on two recessed, off-center subsidiary dials. Its manually crafted hands have distinctively different shapes.

The time range from 25 to 35 minutes, interrupted by the tourbillon aperture, is precisely readable thanks to a rearward extension of the minute hand that sweeps a 10-minute scale on the opposite side. A patent application has been filed for this dual minute display arrangement.

Endowed with easily legible Arabic numerals and wispy-tipped, filigreed hands crafted in-house, the Benu Tourbillon stands out like a prime example of the aesthetic 19th century precision measuring instruments for which Glashütte was acclaimed.

A look at the features of the caliber 103.0 movement in the Benu Tourbillon reveals a totally new concept and a series of surprising solutions. In particular, the Benu Tourbillon is characterized by the three-minute tourbillon according, a flying tourbillon cage with a V-shaped balance cock, a stop seconds mechanism with a brush made of hair, an asymmetric-arm lever escapement and several other industry firsts for which patents are pending. The Benu Tourbillon unites the traditional characteristics of Grossmann-style horological prowess with modern watchmaking elements and the typical hallmarks of the brand.
