From 1854 to 1885, Moritz Grossmann
was one of the key protagonists in Glashütte. He built pocket watches and chronometers. In 1878 he established the German School of Watchmaking. After his death in 1885 his manufacture was closed. In 2008 watchmaker Christine Hutter breathed new life into the name. BENU, BENU Power reserve, BENU Tourbillon, ATUM, and the new TEFNUT line – the mechanical movements of the young brand stand out with exceptional technical solutions and engineering details. For example the BENU Tourbillon, with its flying three-minute tourbillon showcases features involving guaiacum and human hair.
