Description

The tourbillon crowns the BENU family. After all, the flying three-minute tourbillon with stop seconds is one of the most formidable challenges in horology.

The complex choreography of mechanical precision can be admired through the sapphire-crystal back. It expresses technical virtuosity and stands for traditional craftsmanship.

 You can find more details about this product on our official Moritz Grossmann website.
