Grieb & Benzinger Blue Chip Collection

“Blue chips” are known for economical reliability and profitability in good times and in bad times. Since the characteristic blue on the Grieb & Benzinger platinum masterpiece movements is not just a simple blue, but rather a blue platinum coating developed by the brand itself, it stands for its own very special (and reliable) value.

Listening to their customers’ requests to create the Blue Chip models: the workshop’s favorite shade of blue has finally found its way onto the boutique line of watches.

The new Blue Chip models include: Blue Tulip in 18kt rose gold; Blue Tulip Diamond in 18kt white gold set with 77 brilliant-cut diamonds (total weight of 2.55 ct); Blue Polaris in solid platinum or 18kt rose gold; and Blue Polaris Midnight Imperial in 18kt white gold with a black Princess-cut diamond-set bezel.

The Blue Polaris model has a hand-crafted guilloché blue base dial that plays with shades of blue when sunbeams dance across that pattern. The amazing, fully hand-guilloché and -decorated manually wound movement with the prominent off-center hour and minute indication is shown off underneath the skeletonized dial. The platinum version features a Breguet frosted finish upper dial, the Midnight version appears with a shiny black upper dial (the rose gold version comes with a golden one). The manually wound movement features a three-quarter plate and a blue platinum-coated base plate. All parts are hand-guillochéd, hand-skeletonized, and hand-engraved.

The Blue Tulip is a typical, pure skeletonized watch that displays its beauty without any dial, impressing instead with the arts that made Grieb & Benzinger famous: the Tulip series comprises the only skeletonized watches in the world that are completely skeletonized, guilloché, and engraved by hand. Finished with the outstanding signature blue platinum coating, the Blue Tulip is once again an iconic timepiece.
