An exhibition of rare prototypes and novelties from Greubel Forsey

From 4th to 16th of November 2020

The completely new and original titanium case, firmly positions this GMT in a “sports” league of its own. In their creation of this timepiece, Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey have pushed back the limits of ergonomics and wrist comfort. They have invented a totally new case form, perfectly round from above, while revealing the accentuated arched and ovoid shape from other angles. The aerodynamics of this timepiece 4 patents are reinforced by its integrated lugs and strap resulting in distinct functional forms that perfectly fit any wrist.The display side of the GMT Sport presents classic Greubel Forsey architecture, an open, orchestrated theatre between suspended bridges, semi-apparent wheels and floating dials in three dimensions. In keeping with the sporting vocation of this timepiece, the focus is on legibility and efficiency. The hours and minutes are displayed by concentric openworked hands whose curved profile follows the curvature of the case and movement.

The Tourbillon 24 Secondes uses a fast rotational speed and inclined angle to solve the problem of critical positions of the oscillator in relation to gravity. The 25° angle and the rapid revolution of the tourbillon cage significantly improves the chronometric performance of a system containing only one tourbillon, especially in static positions. Greubel Forsey has decided to close the Tourbillon 24 Secondes Asymétrique line by creating a Unique edition: the Tourbillon 24 Secondes Edition Historique. The dial is reinterpreted and restructured with a 3D engraved text that reveals the Greubel Forsey philosophy. The sectorial seconds and power reserve displays have also been re-thought.

The “Balancier” perfectly embodies our fundamental principles. Every detail of the “Balancier” carries the unmistakable stamp of a true Greubel Forsey timepiece – the watchmaking Maison’s values are manifest in the refinement and purity of its lines and dial, the inventive architecture of its balance wheel, the sharp profile of its hands, and the engraving on the reverse of the timepiece. Their creativity is immediately evident in the asymmetry of its case, which has almost become a constant of Greubel Forsey’s universe.

In creating the Balancier Contemporain, a white gold 33-piece limited edition, Greubel Forsey imagined providing a particularly compact showcase for its exclusive balance-wheel system. Creating such a moderately-sized new movement and dial imposed the challenge of maintaining well-balanced forms and pleasing proportions, along with clear legibility and cutting-edge performance. Greubel Forsey pairs the launch of the Balancier Contemporain with this diamond set edition becoming a sparkling sculpture where mother-of-pearl dials underline its elegance. This lustrous new creation stands out like the Balancier Contemporain for its compact size and its exclusive balance wheel system. Its unique proportions are enhanced by the brilliance radiance of the diamonds where the bezel, case band, lugs and crown are all invisibly set with the finest IF / D-E quality baguette-cut diamonds
