lifestyle and quality in one: the barrique watch
The dial sets a special accent on every watch. Because of the use of real barrique barrels, which are processed into millimeter-thin dials, no two watches are alike. Each dial represents a stage,

Clocks made from wine barrels
... How does this happen?
A heart for good wines, special moments and elegant watches…
Grand Pinot founder Michael Halbritter has always had a penchant for elegant watches with a simple design that stand out from the crowd with small but fine features. One summer evening he was sitting with a good friend on a bench in the vineyard where they enjoyed an excellent Pinot Noir together.
Perhaps it was his effect that made Halbritter ask his friend late at night: How nice would it be if we could carry this enjoyable moment together in beautiful nature with us forever?
Two years of development
The idea of ‚Äč‚ÄčGrand Pinot was born at this moment: Michael Halbritter decided to create a watch
which expresses exactly this attitude towards life. Combining simplicity with beauty and the timelessness of a fine wine. This was followed by around two years of design work and a lengthy search for the right partner. Halbritter finally found him in a watch manufacturer who was also enthusiastic about his vision.
The queen of grape varieties
This connection resulted in an extraordinary series of watches, which Halbritter now offers under the Grand Pinot brand: It is named after the Pinot Noir grape variety, which many winegrowers call the queen of grape varieties, explains Halbritter, a watch and wine lover.

The best winegrowers use it to create long-lasting, complex wines of enormous elegance. His watches, which are available in the Classic, Characer and Heritage editions, also exude this character.
