Grieb & Benzinger Black Tulip Sabudha Imperial Luxury Watch
What makes luxury watchmaker so unique, is their watches are limited to a single, never-to-be-repeated piece. The German company has done it once again with a stunning luxury timepiece.
The new Black Tulip Sabudha Imperial luxury watch from Grieb & Benzinger has an interesting story behind it, as the motivation is the third anniversary of luxury magazine Simply Abu Dhabi which is the only English luxury magazine in the emirate of the same name.
The Black Tulip Sabudha Imperial timepiece is an exceptionally decorated wristwatch that was inspired by the majesty, mystery and magic of the Middle East. The luxury watch prominently spotlights a re-imagination of the most mythical jewel in the world.
The watch is carefully decorated using irreplaceable nineteenth-century guilloché tools and handmade with skills that cannot be found beyond Grieb & Benzinger’s workshop in Germany.
It is hand-wound and draws attention to the bezel set with black gemstones, which are not black diamonds, contrary to what might be expected. Since black diamonds are very commonly seen these days, Grieb & Benzinger decided the bezel was to be set with incredible black spinel gemstones, aligned perfectly with invisible settings and glittering with a deep, ethereal intensity.
Since Simply Abu Dhabi is one of the only publications to be distributed to the Royal Palatial Homes and Offices of the ruling families of Abu Dhabi, it made sense to use gemstones with a royal association.
The watch has a stylish open-worked design that was influenced by Arabic style and in particular inspired by the artistry of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi.
The Black Tulip Sabudha Imperial is truly a one-of-a-kind luxury watch. The retail price is currently not available but expect it to be in the six-digit range.
