Unveiled at Basel world 2016, the ATUM Pure re-invents the Pure Classic Finish, a classic horology technique mastered by Moritz Grossmann, the inspirational founder of the watch manufacturing company.
The Pure Classic Finish is another historic facet that Grossmann is bringing to life: Moritz Grossmann applied various finishes to his chronograph movements, thus changing their looks. In highly diverse variations, they also reflect different concepts. Grossmann is now pursuing this tradition with a second finissage approach: The Pure Classic Finish focuses on horological details in design and craftsmanship. It concentrates on function and on the aesthetic appeal of materials. Two specially conceived manufacture calibre stands out in the new steel versions of the ATUM. Combining cool steel and puristic reduction, the ATUM Pure, embodies Grossmann's philosophy in perfection.
