This year again, Moritz Grossmann has created a proverbially singular watch model on the occasion of the Super Bowl. The Unique Piece, which is powered by manufacture calibre 100.1 in high-artistic-finish quality and exclusively available in the U.S., is a tribute to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Moritz Grossmann Tampa Bay Buccaneers Super Bowl 2021.
The Super Bowl, or the final of the National Football League (NFL), stands as the biggest team sport event in the world and the season’s absolute highlight. Every year over 100 million Americans and around 800 million people worldwide follow the live broadcast and its exciting entertainment that includes the premieres of commercials and the halftime show with spectacular performances by celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Shakira and Lady Gaga.
The 55th edition, which took place last weekend at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, saw quarterback Tom Brady (43) and his team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as the first to play the NFL finals in their home stadium. They competed against the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs and their star quarterback Patrick Mahomes (25).

At Moritz Grossmann, the Super Bowl has meanwhile become a worthwhile tradition of creating an exclusive, mostly hand-made special edition. Staying true to the theme of the event, a stylized, high-gloss polished football is emblazoned onto the black dial. Two small cutouts reveal parts of the sophisticated manufacture mechanics that tick beneath it.
The engravings of the final score and the year are another tribute to the game of games. As is de rigueur at Moritz Grossmann and in tune with a long-standing tradition, the fine hands that indicate the time are manually crafted by specialists. Honouring the winners, the tips of this special edition shine in red and black, the team’s colours.
The Microcosm of Grossmann’s fine mechanics
While the dial displays a deeply classic, functional design, the manufacture calibre 100.1, which ticks inside the sporty stainless steel case, shows the opulence of Grossmann’s decorations in full beauty. Every single one of the 198 components – whether visible through the sapphire crystal case back or hidden from the naked eye – is finished in high-artistic quality by skilled experts.
Particularly striking are the ratchet wheel with its three-band snailing pattern, which creates a fascinating play of light, the hand-engraved balance cock adorned with tiny floral motifs, the refined golden chatons and the brownish-violet screws that are characteristic for the Glashütte manufactory. The technical refinements, which also bear the hallmarks of the company founder, include the Grossmann balance, the Glashütte ratchet and the stop-second mechanism for the precise setting of time.
