Black has always been a fashionable color. It exudes confidence and elegance. One might say it is also the secret color of success. A platinum dress watch on a shiny black strap, a luxurious limousine, the magic black credit card…all are understated even though they remain obvious status symbols.

With GRIEB&BENZINGER's new creation, the PHAROS CENTURION IMPERIAL, one more impressive status symbol arrives on the scene: a glamorous, yet simultaneously understated luxury timepiece boasting an all-black appearance. Its cool black look is perfectly topped off by an expressive, eye-catching pavé-set bezel with 66 black Princess-cut diamonds. The totally blackened manually wound movement with its signature three-quarter-plate is decorated in typical GRIEB&BENZINGER manner, particularly exhibiting its beauty from the back: hand-guilloché, hand-skeletonization, and hand-engraving as far as the eye can see.

Like every GRIEB&BENZINGER creation, these watches are exceedingly rare; your neighbor isn’t likely to have one on his wrist.

The price tag for this black beauty, which is in the six-digit range, will ensure the natural selection of its owner – probably someone with a lot of other black in his possession already, like a certain black credit card…


Blackened manually wound movement, three-quarter plate fully skeletonized, guilloché and engraved by hand. Solid, completely blackened PD950 palladium case, 43 mm in diameter, black alligator-skin strap, bezel set with 66 black Princess-cut diamonds.
