Revolution (Hong Kong) - - SIHH 2017 - TEXT BY SEAN LI

While broth­ers Bart and Tim Gröne­feld are still known to a rel­a­tively small cir­cle of col­lec­tors, their rep­u­ta­tion is grow­ing by leaps and bounds, thanks to very spe­cial time­pieces like the 1941 Re­mon­toire (not to men­tion that their Dutch warmth and joie-de­vivre is a breath of fresh air!). Al­ready a GPHG win­ner, the broth­ers work with none other than Kari Vouti­lainen to pro­duce new di­als in a va­ri­ety of col­ored and pat­terned di­als, merg­ing enam­el­ing and guil­lochage, or en­gine-turn­ing, to go with their well-re­garded 8-sec­ond con­stant force mech­a­nism. You can see it at work at reg­u­lar in­ter­vals when the re­lease sys­tem is ac­ti­vated and spins on the left of the dial.
