Something New; Dutch Anyone?: The New Gronefeld Parallax Tourbillon @Baselworld2014
Today, I took a look at the new Gronefeld Parallax Tourbillon, a Dutch tourbillon. Although, there are no other major complications in this timepiece, besides the tourbillon , it is quite the impressive watch to make. It is even more outstanding due to the fact it was manufactured in the Netherlands. Unless you live under a rock, it’s pretty obvious that most tourbillons come from either Switzerland or Germany, not usually the Netherlands.
The other features of the watch include a lrage central seconds hand, stop seconds, a power reserve and winding-setting mechanism indicator. According to the brand, “The in-house movement displays sophistication and craftsmanship at the very highest level.” The Watch Adviser couldn’t concur more.
