Moritz Grossmann Debuts the Tefnut 1,001 Nights

March 1, 2019

Scheherazade would certainly have fallen in love with the dazzlingly beautiful Tefnut 1,001 Nights. This magnificent jeweled watch brings to life the tales of the Arabian Nights with radiant diamonds, handcrafted mother-of-pearl and an elaborate Milanese bracelet.

Inspired by the beauty and mysticism of the Orient, a watch with a magical aura has been created that unites the art of watchmaking with the art of jewelry to the highest level of perfection. The dial takes the observer into a mysterious nocturnal landscape of sand dunes with a moon shining above them.

It is assembled elaborately by hand using the finest and precisely cut mother-of-pearl plates. Due to the varying colors of the mother-of-pearl, each image is a small unique specimen. 62 white brilliant-cut diamonds and a radiant, asymmetrical guilloche lend the dreamlike motif a sparkling frame.

The Tefnut 1,001 Nights is now available with an innovation – an elaborate Milanese bracelet: it is made in white or rose gold to match the case and lends the watch its perfect elegance. Thanks to the ultra-fine workmanship, it gently nestles on the wrist and feels cool and airy on the skin even on hot days. The folding clasp can be variably adjusted and easily released.

The black Roman numerals and the unmistakable lance-shaped Grossmann hands stand out harmoniously against the delicate line structure of the dial. The white or rose gold case gently widens from the crown to the 9 o’clock side. The bezel is set with 60 white diamonds. Two freely suspended lugs fixed to one side of the case easily pick up on the exciting asymmetry of the design. Like the crown, the lugs are graced with blue cabochons.

Caliber 102.0: The Tefnut 1,001 Nights features the characteristic movement elements of the caliber 102.0: cantilevered balance cock with the Grossmann micrometer screw, raised gold chatons, a separately removable winder module, and the mass-optimized Grossmann balance. The sapphire crystal back on the back of the watch reveals the radiant high-artistic finish of the movement.
