Based on a Patek Phillippe tourbillon movement, the watch presents the world’s first tourbillon that is visible. With 336 individual components, this masterpiece was fully skeletonized, guilloche, and engraved by hand to give it a Grieb and Benzinger persona. The gear wheels, too, feature the interlaced ribbons guilloche and the 12 finely guilloche bridges and cocks coated with rhodium and rose gold.
