Shines during the day, lights up at Night

With its new model CENTRAL SECOND, Moritz Grossmann pays tribute to the social and technological significance of the second as a unit of time. While conventionally the small second hand is placed in the six o’clock position in the bottom third of the dial on Grossmann watches, here a large-scale second hand is positioned in the center of the highly refined dial.

CENTRAL SECOND combines a case made from polished steel with a charmingly elegant feel and superb functionality. Schönstes deutsches Handwerk made in Germany that unites the highest degree of craftsmanship with a mechanism that simply functions perfectly.

Blue dial with HyCeram Luminex hands

CENTRAL SECOND is offered in a non-limited edition comprising a blue dial embellished with high-quality sunray finish. The type of finish used here lends the dial a luminous blue tone that makes it glow in various shades depending on the light present. The intricate finish is based on fine strokes that are barely perceptible to the human eye, but radiate out from the middle of the dial, making them reminiscent of delicate rays of sunshine.

A striking contrast to this is provided by the numerals in a rich white and the polished steel hands in white. Filled with HyCeram Luminex, they also make it easy for the wearer to read the time, even in the dark. This hybrid ceramic comprises powerful luminescent pigments that glow in the dark intensively, are long-lasting and produce a beautifully bright green color.
