Michael Friedberg Wrote:But the connection between Schaffhausen goes back further, to the 19th century. Did you know that the designers of IWC famous calibres 52/53 got some inspiration from Moritz Grossmann from Glashütte? Grossmann was a famous 19th century German watchmaker, the author of the prize winning essay on the lever escapement, and one of the founders of the Glashütte School along with Lange and Assmann.I was told by an insider that Grossmann published many articles, one of which was: "the perfect pocket watch design". And this was used by IWC in developing the “IWC Calibre”, which became calibre 52 and IWC’s most predominant pocket watch movement.

The UK Greg Wrote:Dare I ask why Richemont with so many watch names, whether real or just labels they thought it necessary to diversify MB into an area they, Richemont, were fully covered on with dare I suggest leaving just the bottom end of the Market uncovered, per Swatch to Tissot equivalent? Was this watch side for MB, something new or rekindled from even pre WW2 era?
