Gronefeld Principia Automatic. Some pictures and thoughts.
Among all the Gronefeld Principia Automatic, this is the one, in steel, with this salmon / copper dial which is my favorite.
I am not a fan of automatic movements, as I find them, most often, less well decorated than a manual winding movement, but there are some exceptions, and this Gronefeld and the Laurent Ferrier, are some worthy exceptions.
The watch is not only uber cool, it is also top comfortable to wear, due to its proportions: 39, 5 mm big, 10, 5 mm high. The lugs are a bit macho, more than elegant, but this works very well with the rest of the watch, in my opinion.
Another detail I like, the dimension of the " small seconds ". Not too big, nor too small. They partially eat the 5 and 7 indices, but it is not shocking, to me.
And here a picture of the movement...
A last word on the strap, very well chosen, I find.
Bravo, the Gronefeld Brothers... This is one I would like to add in my collection, one day.
