The New Grönefeld 1941 Principia

It’s always a pleasure to report about watches which come from our home country. And with the Grönefeld ‘horological brothers’ you know it’s gonna be special when they invite you for a sneak preview. So last week we took a road trip across the country to visit them in their hometown Oldenzaal (in the east of The Netherlands). For those who are not familiar with Grönefeld and their watchmaking, we have covered their One Hertz and the Remontoire on multiple occasions in the past. Their watchmaking is on another level and when it comes to finishing you will have a challenge to find movements that outrank these.

First Grönefeld Automatic Watch

Ten years after their first Grönefeld watch, they are launching their first automatic wristwatch. Where previous models came with manual winding (complicated) movements, it was time to create the first self-winding Grönefeld watch. “Entry level” doesn’t do their watchmaking justice, it just indicates that this is the most affordable watch in their line-up. As you can expect from this watch is finished to the excellent Grönefeld specifications
