Lux Zobel

For advanced wrists: Lux Zobel in a deep aubergine and a case from pure rose gold is a timepiece that makes beauty tangible—and masters the fine Glashütte style. On the outside, it is wonderfully simple in the most elegant way; and the caliber inside is produced with a crazy amount of effort. Screwed gold chatons, beveled edges, a twin mainspring barrel—all the characteristics of traditional Glashütte fine watchmaking are present in this in-house built shape caliber, DUW 2002. And a promise of quality is even engraved onto the balance cock: “Mit Liebe in Glashütte gefertigt” (lovingly produced in Glashütte)—by hand, of course.
