I’m simply back (and as yet recuperating) from a brilliant SalonQP 2015, which looked better than anyone might have expected to me.
The presentation was flooded with fabulous timepieces and we will take a gander at additional throughout the next few many months, yet here’s one that got my attention: a unique piece Parallax Tourbillon in platinum with dark dial and splendid red features by Bart and Tim Grönefeld , two incredible watchmakers from the Netherlands who also end up being brothers.
While Grönefeld is a generally youthful brand dispatched uniquely in 2008, the brothers’ family watchmaking legacy returns an entire 100 years.
The Parallax Tourbillon itself has a genuinely lucky family, having been granted the prize for Best Tourbillon at the 2014 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.
Bart and Tim put a great deal of consideration and exertion into exactness, so the Parallax Tourbillon has an enormous focal second hand allowing the wearer to fully use its standout chronometric performance.
As well as the dull dial and eye-getting red features, there a few other intriguing changes to the development with regards to this unique piece that separate it from the center collection.
Usually (for Grönefeld at any rate; amazingly uncommon for every other person) the extensions of the Parallax Tourbillon are 100% unadulterated treated steel with the shifting sorts of fine wrapping up giving the entirety of the differentiation. Notwithstanding, for this unique piece portions of the tempered steel spans have been treated with dark ruthenium for much higher contrast.
Plus, rather than the typical round graining on the highest points of the scaffolds, this unique piece includes straight graining.
And did I say that it’s a flying tourbillon?
And that the second hand consistently runs corresponding to the equilibrium cock?
And that you don’t pull out the crown to set the time yet push it to choose the capacity: time-setting or winding?
But that’s all bye-the-bye in light of the fact that the fundamental explanation I’m highlighting this unique piece Parallax Tourbillon here is that it looks so bleeding cool!
