The Grönefeld 1941 Remontoire

I honestly thought Grönefeld would find it very difficult to improve on the 1941 Remontoire. This is a serious award-winning watch, after all. But I've just been proven wrong. The Dutch brothers have bested themselves with the introduction of a stainless steel model with an absolutely killer guilloché dial, made by Kari Voutilainen and sealed under a fine coat of enamel by Inès Hamaguchi. It’s a team effort, but it all comes together very coherently and to great effect.


The 1941 Remontoire was released by the Grönefeld brothers just this past year, and it’s a watch that is special for a variety of reasons. On a purely personal level, because Oldenzaal, the city from which they both hail, has a church clock with a remontoire, and because their father and grandfather have both been responsible for running it, going back to 1912. And, on a professional note, because it took the top Men’s Watch prize at the 2016 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG).

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
