Moritz Grossmann BENU Power Reserve Platinum
As a systematic refinement, the BENU Power reserve visually remains true to its watch family. The slender three-part case with the gracefully elegant bezel puts the focus on the suave face of the watch. The generously dimensioned sapphire-crystal display back, which has an antireflective coating on the inside, reveals the full beauty of the movement of the BENU Power reserve.
A crisply drawn peripheral scale and pragmatic Arabic numerals grace the solid-silver dial. The seconds subdial is deeply recessed to allow the large hands to hover as close as possible over the main dial. With their delicately pointed tips, they assure a legible reading of time from any perspective. The face of the new BENU line is enriched with a two-colour power-reserve display, a modern detail that harmoniously complements the time indications and the brand signature.
