The Moritz Grossmann HAMATIC – automatic watch with hammer winding mechanism
Early this year, I visited Moritz Grossmann in Glashütte and was shown the prototype of this watch. They told me that it still needs some tweaking, however, I show pictures of it showing a partly open dial. Personally, I prefer the closed dial we see now.
(Above is a prototype only which I shot early in 2019)
So now the watch comes with a closed dial. I think that looks more elegant and refined.
So this is what this watch is about:
- The first automatic watch by Moritz Grossmann
- Presentation of the HAMATIC and the new product video as part of the Moritz Grossmann Roadshow on 23 and 24 May 2019 in Hong Kong
- Automatic hammer winding system reveals a peek of the intricate mechanics
- Thanks to its pendulum-style weight, the hammer body converts even the smallest movement into winding power
- Available in rose gold and white gold
Similar automatic winding mechanisms were already created in the late 18th century by watchmakers such as Abraham-Louis Breguet with his Perpétuelle watch.
The calibre 106.0
The calibre 106.0 was especially designed for the HAMATIC. This classic pillar movement has a Grossmann plate with six Glashütte stripes. Through the interplay of the hammer body together with head and spring, the automatic hammer mechanism works in both directions. A sapphire roller transfers the oscillation between hammer spring and hammer body.
