Grieb & Benzinger’s Luxurious New Blue Merit

May 2014

Just in time for the 20th anniversary of A. Lange & Söhne`s re-launch in 1994, the masters of Grieb & Benzinger surprise watch collectors with a creation displaying deep respect for A. Lange & Söhne’s traditional art of watchmaking.

The Tourbillon Pour le Mérite is one of the original timepieces representative of the remarkable comeback of this imperial watch brand, which was resuscitated following almost 50 years of inactivity caused by Germany’s historical division.
It was a matter dear to the Grieb & Benzinger masters’ heart to create Blue Merit - a piece based upon an original A. Lange & Söhne caliber.

It took twelve months to transform the original timepiece into its final breathtaking form, one that is very characteristic of Grieb & Benzinger’s signature style. As the brand’s team journeyed to the edge of what is technically possible to modify the movement, it naturally took the artisans’ full attention and horological experience. Numerous details once again confirm that the complicated masterpieces of Grieb & Bezinger are more objets d’art than watches.

With its solid 41 mm platinum case in typical Grieb & Benzinger style, the Blue Merit is another breathtakingly unique collector’s item that confirms the brand’s special position within the intimate sphere of luxury wristwatches.

The price for this ultra-exclusive timepiece is US$ 530,000.
