The Blue Ocean is a skeletonised monopusher chronograph based on a column wheel chronograph movement from 1926 housed in solid platinum with a guilloché platinum crown button. At 47 mm in diameter, this watch is a design statement on the wrist and, as usual, an absolutely unique piece in which countless hours have been invested in restoration, hand-skeletonisation, hand-engraving and guilloché in order to create this masterpiece of time. In typical Grieb & Benzinger manner, the historical movement within this oeuvre has been awakened to enjoy a new life.

The company’s typical blue platinum coating of the base plate has also found its way into this new unique piece. The base plate was first hand-skeletonised to its barest minimum and the case back hand-guilloché before being coated with the blue platinum developed by Grieb & Benzinger.

A skeletonised dial with a rare Breguet frosted finish and overlapping displays in the characteristic Grieb & Benzinger style unequivocally shows the skeletonised movement and the blue platinum-coated base plate, another signature element of Grieb & Benzinger.
