With its expressive vintage character, the watch embodies good, traditional craftsmanship and the work of Moritz Grossmann himself, who was famous for his pocket watches during his lifetime. His style influenced the dial design of the anniversary watch with its classic white gold case, the nostalgic typography of the Roman hour numerals and the historic Moritz Grossmann logo from 1875. The cream tone of the dial, which is made from solid silver and is lacquered, only serves to emphasize the charm of this watch. A further homage to the old master is the fine poiré-shaped hands, just like the ones Moritz Grossmann once used for his pocket watches. The hands are still made painstakingly by hand in the manufactory, which is unusual even in the world of haute horology. They are then annealed by hand, giving them an expressive violet hue. The dial print in the same shade emphasizes the effect of the hands. And the color creates a link to the movement of the HAMATIC Vintage Cream: in addition to artistic cuts and surface finishes, the elaborate finishing on the highly refined manufactory calibre 106.0 also includes the screws annealed in a violet shade. They match the dial perfectly.
