GRÖNEFELD - 1941 REMONTOIRE

WHEN THE HISTORY OF THE GRÖNEFELD FAMILY MEETS A MECHANICAL MOVEMENT !

The TIM & BART GRÖNEFELD timepiece is Stunning in many aspects!
The overall aesthetic is clear, classic and traditional but when you look closely… An amazing mechanical movement is in "the heart" of this achievement.

The idea came from a church clock (created in 1913 by Royal Eijsbouts) where the brothers were playing as young boys. That clock was (and still is) maintained by the GRÖNEFELD family and its mechanism is equipped with a remontoire system.

At 9 o’clock, a governor regulate the speed of the remontoire mechanism. Moving every 8 seconds, it indicates that a constant force is distributed within the movement. It also says (in a way) that some energy remain in the barrel! if not, the indicator simply stops.
Quite a nice way to appreciate your timepiece "alive", isn’t it ?

Then we turned it and discovered how Wonderful the finishing is! and we mean, All components. The duality between the front and the back is Magical. It’s nice to see that 2 brothers from the Netherlands can reach such high quality.

At the SIHH 2017, a second version of the 1941 REMONTOIRE was launched in collaboration with VOUTILAINEN (dials). The two independent manufactures are long time friends and frequently together around the globe.

The VOUTILAINEN dials are handmade and known for their particular aesthetic. He really masters the guilloché know-how and brings a large range of patterns & colours.

Great collaboration.
Congratulations!
