At their roadshow in London last week Moritz Grossmann launched a new version of their (Benu Heritage) 37 Arabic called the 37 Arabic Black & White.
Coming in a 37mm sized 18 carat white gold case with a thickness of 9.2mm, it has a solid silver deep black dial with white Arabic numerals and hand-polished steel hands that run along a minute track. The two previous variants have red gold or white gold cases, silver dials and the signature brown-violet Mortiz Grossman hands. Both the earlier models and this one have simple classic aesthetics, but the slim delicacy of the Grossman hands are an important distinguishing feature.
Inside is the in-house manual-wind Calibre 102.1. With parts in untreated German silver, it features a 3/5 plate, beats at 21,600VPH, and has a power reserve of forty-eight hours.
Coming on a matching black hand-stitched alligator leather strap with an 18 carat white gold pin buckle, as its place within the ‘Benu Heritage’ sub family indicates, the 37 Arabic Black & White is not about being modern or boundary-pushing design wise, but if you are looking for a very traditionally-sized elegant simple dress watch, this may tick your boxes.
Although obviously quite different priced, plus it has to be ordered as dial option, rather than as a serially produced watch, this is not the only new piece we have covered this year with the timeleless combination of black dial, Arabic numerals, and a white gold case.
