Glashütte Original, Glashütte i/SA, "Meisterwerke - Julius Assmann 3, Tourbillon"

, Movement No. 45, Case No. 14/20, Ref. 1-53-01-12-12-06, Cal. GUB 53-01, 40 mm, circa 2007

An extremely rare, skeletonized and elaborately hand-engraved wristwatch in practically new condition, with flying tourbillon, retrograde date and power reserve indication in a special case that allows wearing this timepiece either on the wrist or as a pocket watch. It was launched as a limited edition of 20 18k white gold pieces - with original ball-shaped wooden box, certificate, user instructions, setting pin and original 18K white gold chain

Case: 18k white gold, glazed push back, hinged back, reeded case band, original 18k white gold buckle. Dial: 18k white gold, skeletonized, hand-engraved.

The Glashütte Original manufactory launches their caliber 53 with this tourbillon. It is a lavishly skeletonized and engraved manually wound movement that stylishly shows off the tourbillon arrangement at 12 o'clock as well as the off-center display of the hours and minutes at 6 o'clock and the retrograde indicators of the date and the power reserve. The seconds are functionally placed on the tourbillon carriage itself as the small hand on it displays the passage of the seconds on the accompanying scale. The large screw balance is just as fascinating as the filigreed, finely worked tourbillon cage with a central diamond endstone.

The 18k white gold hunter pocket watch case and its lid rounds off this technical masterpiece. The sapphire crystal back underneath the hunter case lid rveals the finely decorated movement. Nestled in a 18k white gold watch case carrier, this watch is a contemporary interpretation of the beautiful, refined Assmann timepieces of days gone by.
Case: as new
