The TEFNUT model is a watch that reflects a decidedly reduced form and a straightforward approach to time keeping. Its personality eliminates all doubt that horological class is also a question of appearance.
Exquisitely cambered, polished steel hour markers, convex numerals at the 6 and 12 o’clock positions, manually-crafted hands and a slender, polished steel case are defining elements of this strikingly simple, technically perfect timepiece.
A totally reimagined mechanical heart of similarly subtle elegance beats inside the handsome case. The remarkably thin movement (3.45mm) exhibits all of Grossmann’s signature hallmarks, yet is absolutely unique in its linear-symmetric architecture. This is immediately visible with a glance at the modified, abrupt cut of the 3/5 plate which juxtaposes the calibre that lies beneath.
TEFNUT Pure Steel is designed to convey a subtle message of style with its minimalistic dial and streamlined case as well as afford the wearer a profound sense of horological mastery from what lies underneath.
The striking bright violet dial radiates within the polished steel case for a fresh, clean look of endearing class.
