Just two Dutch guys collecting their Holy Grail

Mar 11, 2019,12:27 PM

After one year of waiting, watchonthewrist and I drove to Oldenzaal, The Netherlands, today to collect our Grönefeld Remontoire's today. 

We have been talking about this piece since forever, years ago when we could only fantasize about collecting our dream watches. It definitely makes me extra proud to wear a watch now that is made in my home country. The reception was great, as always. 

I will let the pictures do the talking from now on...

watchonthewrist collected his Salmon remontoire, the other one belongs to me.

Amazing pieces from two great guys. Surely, a moment to cherish. Enjoy it, but please do let us know the impressions. I guess Tony will have to take a back seat now, he will not be happy. Dutch pride!

Very exciting! Congratulations! These are the type of posts that are infectious and build the brands for independents. And they make me want a moment like that Time to go shopping for a new piece for the collection

Thank you.

What are you thinking about buying?

One hertz or parallex

 By: SBS-purists : March 12th, 2019-13:54
I like larger case sizes so for gronefeld these are the two.

Thanks , if you want a One Hertz or a Parallax then you need to order one soon .

 By: Watchonthewrist : March 12th, 2019-14:26
They told me there are only a few movements left and then these models are sold out

That's my concern

 By: SBS-purists : March 12th, 2019-19:08
I hope to be able to visit them later this year. Have a trip to the area planned in the fall.

Thank you.

 By: Watchonthewrist : March 12th, 2019-14:33
Hope you will meet the Horological Brothers someday . There amazing and fun company . You will have a great time with them 🍻

I was blown away by your watch, it's the best iteration of the 1941 I've seen so far (and I think I have seen a good few).

 By: Jay (Eire) : March 13th, 2019-04:11
For me I always preferred to have a dial where the aperture kind of disappeared, or at least blended in. You have achieved that, and more with your choice of dial. Congrats to both on two very fine watches, even if my personal preference/aesthetic favours... 

Thanks my friend 🤗 [nt]
