For Baselworld 2016, Georg Jensen introduces the Koppel Grande Date Small Seconds. It joins the new generation of Henning Koppel watches that debuted at Baselworld last year.
The watch takes its inspiration from Henning Koppel’s first wristwatch designed for Georg Jensen in 1978. That original design was marked by an industrial minimalism expressed through Koppel’s signature detail and proportion.
The designer rethought the traditional horological minute track and numbers, replacing them with dots graduated in five-minute segments. The addition of the long slender hands, a key Koppel watch design motif, preserved maximum dial space. This allowed the minimalist feel to be maintained even when extra functions were added.
The case, in stainless steel or in 18kt rose gold, measures 41mm x 12.3mm. It has a convex double-curve sapphire crystal, a sapphire display back, and it is water resistant to 30 meters.
Movement is the Swiss automatic Dubois-Depraz caliber 14000 with 30 jewels, 28,800 vph and a power reserve of 42 hours.
