Introduction

Seeking to give independent watchmakers a larger platform through which they could express their sense of creativity and watchmaking prowess, German luxury goods manufacturer Goldpfeil quickly began collaborating with some of the worlds best watchmakers in much the same way as the Harry Winston Opus collection and Max Busser's eponymous brand MB&F. Arising as a result from these collaborations, the Goldpfeil Moonphases ref. GPFJ 11163 that we have here was a collaborative between Frank Jutzi, one of the founding members of ACHI, and Goldpfeil. Featuring a silver engine-turned multi-textured dial, a 36mm round 18ct white gold case with thick rectangular lugs, this timepiece draws inspiration from regulator watches from the past with a centrally located minutes hand surrounded by an hours subdial, a seconds subdial, and a moon phase indicator which creates a wonderfully symmetrical design.

THE DIAL

The multi-textured, engine-turned guilloche dial in silver and its distinctive arrow-shaped hands in blued steel, form a delightful harmony with the 18ct white gold case and blue leather strap.

THE CASE

With its circular case and contrasting thick rectangular lugs, the Goldpfeil Frank Jutzi Moonphases carries a unique presence on the wrist thanks to its commanding sense of personality and unusual aesthetic.

TIMING MACHINE READOUT

This reading was taken (crown down) with a ONEOF Accuracy Boutique Edition timing machine at time of cataloging. It is provided as a courtesy only, and shall not be construed as a warranty or guarantee of any kind. Please refer to our terms and conditions of sale for more information.

Condition

The watch is in overall near-mint condition. Dial is in like new condition. Case has very light surface abrasions that are consistent with careful wear. Strap and buckle appear to be original to the watch.

Please Note: Due to CITES considerations, if the watch is to be shipped outside of the USA, an alternative leather strap to the existing exotic version, shall be provided.

Our Perspective

While now a commercially proven method of watchmaking, Goldpfeil's attempt to collaborate with the best watchmakers in the world was perhaps too early for their own good, with the brand going into receivership in 2008. With this however, their timepieces are an important relic that we should look to celebrate where the industry has brought itself.
