Grieb & Benzinger’s latest piece, the “Blue Merit”, is a platinum-cased tourbillon based on the famous, rare, and sought-after Tourbillon Pour le Mérite caliber by A. Lange & Söhne. In fact the movement used in this one-of-a-kind timepiece is one of the first 200 pieces built by A. Lange & Sohne between 1994 and 1998. It took twelve months to transform the original timepiece into its final breathtaking form, one that is very characteristic of GRIEB & BENZINGER’s signature style. With its solid 41 mm platinum case (their preferred case metal), the BLUE MERIT is another breathtakingly unique collector’s item for US$ 530,000 (385,000 €).
