An Exclusive Advent Calendar at Christie’s

To mark its 10th anniversary, Moritz Grossmann are launching their most ambitious project to date: the release of an interactive, online advent calendar of 24 unique watch pieces which are exclusively available at a global online auction with Christie’s. This is the first time ever that the auction house has offered such a large capsule collection of new and unique pieces.

About Moritz Grossmann
On November 11, 2008, Christine Hutter founded Grossmann Uhren using the distinguished name of the co-founder of the Glashütte watch industry and initiator of the German School of watchmaking in Glashütte, Moritz Grossmann. In doing so, she ensured that the legacy of the highly respected watch pioneer was revived after around 130 years. Since 2008, the company has been manufacturing watches to the highest standards in a classic yet contemporary design.

The common denominator of this collection is that every watch is unique, deriving from the most beautiful German craftsmanship.

The online auction runs until the 10th of December 2018 (Sale no. 16375).
