Moritz Grossmann Benu Power Reserve Dynamo Dresden edition

Moritz Grossmann Benu Power Reserve Dynamo Dresden edition

For the kick-off with Dynamo Dresden, Moritz Grossmann presents the “Black/Yellow”. This is a special version of the BENU Power Reserve watch line. Having a presence at many international events they still keep emphasis on their traditional roots. And also showing commitment to numerous regional activities. Moritz Grossmann have been collaboration with SG Dynamo Dresden since 2007.

Grossmann CEO Christine Hutter: “In the past years, Dynamo has scored impressive gains with a track record that has elevated the eleven into the 2nd league. Our encounter with sporting director Ralf Minge and chief trainer Uwe Neuhaus was a delightful introduction to a magnificent team, and we look forward to an inspiring spirit of collaboration.”

Moritz Grossmann plays Black/Yellow

Moritz Grossmann is now presenting the BENU Power Reserve. Limited to only 11 watches in a special “Black/Yellow” colour setting thus resembling the colours of the soccer team of SG Dynamo Dresden.  These colours make a great contrast and the yellow has been used for details in the stitching, hands and the power reserve indicator just about the senter of the dial. This version of the BENU Power Reserve model is made in white gold. With these fine details, the Dynamo Dresden version stands out from the other models in this watch family yet remaining very similar. With its two-colour power-reserve indicator, this watch is the perfect choice for a version in Dynamo Dresden’s livery. When the watch is fully wound, the bar in the dial aperture shows black and gradually turns yellow as time elapses. The black dial is decorated with a stylised ‘D’ as can be found in the logo of Dynamo Dresden.

The stainless steel rhomboid hands, manufacture-crafted especially for the BENU, are filled with yellow HyCeram and contrast brilliantly against the dark dial. Additionally, the black alligator leather strap is accentuated with yellow contrast stitching.
