Gronefeld One Hertz Just Went Platinum

Gronefeld One Hertz Just Went Platinum

After winning the prestigious TimeZone’s 2011 Watch of the Year award and their appearance on national television in The Netherlands (click here to view the item), Gronefeld Exclusive Timepieces introduces their One Hertz in Platinum.

Gronefeld received a lot of coverage here with their One Hertz ‘secondes mortes’  timepiece over the last year. Not only because the watch is just plain beautiful, also because we believe we are going to hear a lot more from brothers Tim and Bart Gronefeld from Oldenzaal, The Netherlands. This small independent watch manufacturer is the cream of the crop and now TimeZone also acknowledges this, it can go pretty fast with these guys.

We have done an in-depth article on the secondes mortes One Hertz timepiece in the past (click here) and a superb photo review by our own Ming Thein as well (click here). This coming BaselWorld, we will get you additional coverage on the new platinum One Hertz from Gronefeld. The new Gronefeld One Hertz timepieces come in several flavors with regards to the dial and hands, being the ‘Ice’ and ‘Fire’ Titanium versions. They don’t have to fool us of course, the Fire version is just showing the proud Dutch orange color! The titanium versions are restricted to 30 pieces only.

More information and photos can be found in the official Gronefeld Gallery.

    I can’t tell if there is a gap between the hour and second window, at nine o clock of the hour subdial. I’m not sure if it is an optical illusion but it seems like the hour dial is connected to the second subdial at six o clock of the hour dial and a few millimeters separated at nine o clock. Is this simply the angle of the picture or is it genuinely an asymmetrical design?

      Dear Tim. It’s an optical illusion. Best regards, Bart Grönefeld.
