Hartwig's Classic Chronograph

Hartwig Balke first conceived this special edition masterpiece while admiring a collection of vintage clocks in his personal collection. He was inspired by their ability to purely communicate the significance of time itself, in which the experience of reading time from a clock had a certain formality and sophistication to it. The clocks weren't just pleasant to look at, they radiated this deeper essence about time. Hartwig wanted to replicate this unique effect of a classic clock in a chronograph wristwatch. He prototyped a design for years before collaborating with close friend and collaborator, Jochen Benzinger, to finally execute the sterling silver guilloche dial.
