Now the luxury watch brand has released an exclusive video showcasing how the unique timepiece, which is the only model of its type, was made.
Featuring a movement originally created by Patek Philippe for Tiffany in the late 19th century and boasting 400 individual parts, the watch has a diameter of only 36.5mm.
The unique skeletonized minute repeater split-seconds chronograph comes with a blue platinum coated base plate – a signature element of all Grieb & Benzinger platinum watches.
Launched in February, the Blue Danube was one of three platinum watches unveiled by Grieb & Benzinger at a private ceremony in Singapore, along with the Blue Whirlwind, and Blue Sensation – all with a total value of $1.5 million.
The Grieb & Benzinger Blue Danube timepiece is priced at $450,000.
