The Edition 1 Handaufzug captivates the imagination at first glance with its elegant simplicity. With an unobtrusive diameter of 42mm, it nevertheless impresses with its beautiful, large, sterling silver dial.
Using a unique process (e.g. Breguet frosting), this dial is polished and made resistant. It beautifully complements the small second subdial at 6 o'clock that is rose gold plated and features intricate hand-guilloché. A domed, anti-reflective sapphire crystal protects the dial and pear-shaped hands. This durable, and scratch-resistant crystal protects the watch from the strains of everyday wear. The true masterpiece of this watch, however, is the ETA Unitas 6498 caliber movement based on a pocket watch caliber, whose movements are clearly visible through the solid sapphire crystal case back. The balance wheel, accurate Swiss lever escapement and complex gear train epitomize the fascination with mechanical watchmaking. This piece by master watchmaker Jochen Benzinger was elaborately created by hand to make it truly special. Keeping the heart of the watch in place, the balance cock beats at 18,000 semi-oscillations per hour and is delicately engraved by hand and finished with elegant rose gold plating. Flame blued screws, perlage of the main plate as well as the hand-wound movement's three-quarter plate guilloché by hand round off the elegant refinement and make the Edition 1 a classic of today's watchmaking art.
