The GRIEB & BENZINGER masters have been commissioned with a very special timepiece for a watch connoisseur in the Middle East as personal gift for the holy month of Ramadan: the GREEN INSPIRATION.
Since releasing the BLACK TULIP SABUDHA IMPERIAL in 2013 for Simply Abu Dhabi Magazine, the brand has caught the attention of watch connoisseurs in the Middle East, who have rightly recognized and warmly welcomed the German workshop’s concept of bespoke production for demanding customers.
This latest inquiry from a Middle Eastern connoisseur has honored the masterful German watch experts as the meaning of the gift was quite impressive. Paying tribute to this distinguished commission, the watch material and colors for this timepiece were very carefully chosen, putting distinct emphasis on the color green in the center of the design. Green is the traditional color representing Islam.
This timepiece comes in a solid platinum case with the typical GRIEB & BENZINGER hand-guilloché bezel and a black alligator strap with green stitching. The eye-catching, two-part dial is extraordinarily deep: Arabic numerals on the upper hour scale with green dots marking the hours combine with a handcrafted, guilloché, green-colored base dial whose color shifts ever so slightly as the sun’s rays touch it.
As with every GRIEB & BENZINGER creation, this is an exceedingly rare timepiece. The price tag of this 950PT platinum watch is approximately € 65,000.
