Grieb & Benzinger recently launched an alien inspired watch call “Area 51”. Designed by Albrecht Bolz, a master goldsmith, the art pieces on the dial is three-dimensional with rubies and diamonds.
The back of the watch displays the mechanical movement with in-house modifications such as skeletonization, guilloché and engraving. There is also three-dimensional planets including Mother Earth set on bridges providing an impression of space.
Set in a solid 18K palladium white gold case, this watch is bound to be expensive despite the lack of mechanical complications. With an “alien” theme, there will be a lot of interested collectors out there. I won’t be surprised that a stainless steel model would be coming out soon to fill the needs of a larger group of potential customers. I know I would be one of them!!
