TEFNUT 36 Rose Gold, argenté: MG-000691
In keeping with the elegant design of the model family, the TEFNUT 36 represents a smaller variation suited to finer wrist sizes thanks to its elegant, 36 mm case. As a result of its enhanced comfort on the wrist, this universal format can be worn by male and female watch enthusiasts alike. The gently curved lugs also enhance fit as they hug the wrist. Their tapered chamfers form a seamless transition to the strap for a clean look of distinction. From the moment TEFNUT is placed on the wrist, this watch becomes one with its owner.
With a subsidiary seconds dial at 7 o’clock and Moritz Grossmann’s signature brown-violet hued numerals and hands, its face is an unmistakable brand ambassador. The well-balanced proportions are propagated in the calibre 102.0 movement as well. The exhibition case back showcases the work of art specially conceived for this model family. To achieve this degree of compactness, Grossmann’s watchmakers chose a 3/5 plate with a straight cut and arranged the movement parts almost symmetrically. The TEFNUT 36 is an exceptionally beautiful manifestation of pure watchmaking artistry.
The two-part dial of the TEFNUT 36 is made of solid silver. Its delicately dotted minute scale is complemented with crisply drawn brown-violet Arabic numerals. The nodal hands, manually crafted in a detailed process, are rare. They are annealed/flamed to a brown-violet hue to match the numerals. Brown-violet creates an excellent contrast against the bright dial and makes reading the time a genuine pleasure.
THE SECONDS DIAL
The subsidiary seconds dial at 7 o’clock is a prominent hallmark of the TEFNUT 36. It is recessed into the main dial so that the minute and hour hands can hover above the minute scale as closely as possible without adding unnecessary height. The fine yet very crisp seconds scale testifies to Grossmann‘s ambition to leverage the design elements of a precision timekeeping instrument. Endowed with a slender node for greater corporeality, the hand is a perfect complement to the seconds sub dial.
The TEFNUT 36 is framed by a slender gold bezel that can be optionally set with 80 brilliant-cut diamonds. It adds irresistible feminine elegance to the inimitable face and provides an excellent option for his/her timepieces from the same family but with different personalities.
