I feel fortunate to have this. I am very happy for these two Grönefeld brothers that their business is so good it’s now fully booked. Wonderfully nice guys.

This particular Parallax Tourbillon is one of only five because it has a hammered dial and Arabic numbers. It’s also in a steel case which I like.

Wow, very beautiful!

Thank you so much. I’ve had it for a couple years but since their announcement I thought I’d bring it out.

That is a gorgeous beast of a watch.

Wonderful details and design.  The brothers are very impressive.  
What is the diameter of the watch?  Is it large, or just the picture makes it look so?

Thanks for sharing this one.

Thank you! The photo makes it look huge. I see that now. It’s actually 43mm x 12.5. Wears very comfortably.

WOW! That's some serious Grönefeld and the dial background texture is beautiful 👍

Thank you IWC!

I didn't know what S and W signified...

 By: India Whiskey Charlie : September 15th, 2021-00:55
So, I looked it up and found my answer in an online review:

"A handy indicator on the dial tells owners exactly what mode the watch is in – W for winding, S for time-setting. Here, the large size of the crown makes it easier to wind."

I thought it was compass missing N and E

Amazing watch

It’s pretty ingenious and fun to push when switching from one to the other. Only us watch nuts would understand the pleasure!

Another Fantastic Watch. And it was a pleasure meeting you in NYC last week.

 By: Watch4Me : September 15th, 2021-02:26
Hope to see you at another VC event soon. 

The pleasure was all mine. Truly it was. The best thing about our passion is meeting nice people like yourself. Hope to see you again soon!

The perfect amalgamation of movement tech, amazing finishing, and austere non-outlandish design that lacks nothing in terms of attention to detail.

I am not a tourbillon guy, but it is hard not to love it!

 By: amanico : September 15th, 2021-06:19

As far as tourbillons go this is unique in that it’s flush with the dial and also not a hole in the center. It’s stops at noon when you go to set the watch.

 By: EdTonkin : September 15th, 2021-20:13

Yes, a marvel. Even if I have a preference for GP Tourbillons with bridges or JLC Gyros...

 By: amanico : September 15th, 2021-20:17

What a spectacular beauty ,and rare too

The hammer dial is perfect on this one.

I’ve been hammered myself a few times :)
