Holthenrichs Deconstructed in Meterorite and Aventurine

These are the latest two offerings from Michiel Holthinrichs's eponymous brand - Holthinrichs Watches

Based on his new Deconstructed concept, he has taken it a few steps further with these two striking new models. One with a meteorite dial (above), and the other in a lovely blue aventurine (below).
