Grönefeld Goes For Automatic With 1941 Principia
The 1941 Principia marks an important moment in the history of Grönefeld, as it is the very first automatic watch of the brand. The horological brothers, Tim and Bart Grönefeld named the watch after the birth year of their father along with the title of a volume of three books written by Sir Isaac Newton about the laws of motion and gravitation.
Grönefeld offers this watch in three different case materials: stainless steel, red gold and white gold, along with five different dials to choose from, and seven different straps. Where most haute horlogerie brands play it safe, Grönefeld adds lots of color to its latest watch, offering the dials in salmon, light blue and turquoise for example. The one thing they all have is, however, the flame-blued lancette hands which not only make reading the time a breeze, but also adds to the overall composition that makes up this horological masterpiece from Oldenzaal!
