A German city of architectural treasures provides the inspiration for an open-heart treasure from Rüdiger.
Gorlitz is not only the Easternmost city in Germany, it is also one of the best preserved. Within a few hundred yards of each other, visitors can find spectacular examples of beautifully restored Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and art nouveau buildings. The city has Germany’s most extensive heritage area, with over 4,000 listed buildings.
It is not surprising that this historic city, which many consider the most beautiful in Germany, served as the inspiration for one of the most beautiful watches that Rüdiger has ever produced. Rüdiger Gorlitz Collection timepieces use a classic “open heart” configuration to proudly display the premium Miyota 82S7 Automatic Movement that powers this spectacular watch.
There is a porthole on the front of the watch dial that reveals the spinning balance wheel. On the back, a special tinted glass caseback displays the rest of the movement at work. Everything about this fine timepiece is a showcase for Rüdiger’s exceptional quality and attention to detail.
The beautifully textured dial uses twelve stainless steel screws as indices and features two well-placed sub-dials that indicate continuous seconds and 24-hour time. The harmonious integration of these two sub dials with the distinctive open-heart complication gives this watch its unique appeal. With polished brass hands and a fluted brass crown that perfectly match the watch’s balance wheel and gear train, there is no mistaking this distinctive mechanical watch.
The Rüdiger Gorlitz is available with your choice of a solid stainless steel bracelet with a butterfly buckle, or a premium leather strap with a deployment buckle. The precisely engineered stainless steel case is water resistant to 165 feet and is equipped with scratch resistant mineral glass crystals on the front and back of the watch.
If you visit Gorlitz, you’ll want to be sure to visit the historic City Hall with its two clock towers that date from 1524. If you don’t have time to travel this far, just make sure you have a Rüdiger Gorlitz timepiece on your wrist. A Gorlitz watch is a fabulous reminder of Germany’s classic style and proud heritage.
