The skeletonizing of this stunning piece, the Moritz Grossmann ATUM Skelett, was done in a small workshop in Switzerland’s Siberia, Le Brévine–the workplace of one of the acknowledged masters of this discipline, Christophe Schaffo.
In his atelier, Schaffo creates incredible skeletonized watches entirely by hand–the work so intense, he only does about 10 watches per year. Schaffo combines technology, craftsmanship and artistic creativity, and the results are spellbinding.
The starting point of this unique piece is the Moritz Grossmann caliber 100.1, from which Schaffo removes as much material as he can, enhancing the artistic creativity of the watch while at the same time leaving enough material to ensure its reliability. It’s a delicate dance, one to which Schaffo is supremely suited.
