Visually and mechanically great.
Even in the scarce field of high-end watches, Greubel Forsey replica has brought the watchmaking industry to a level of craftsmanship unmatched by others-not only in finishing, but also in continuous innovation in chronographs, while establishing its own unique three-dimensional aesthetics.
Now, the brand combines all of these into its first sports watch, GMT Sport. The GMT Sport is almost identical in function to the existing GMT, combining world time with a tilted tourbillon, but it is no different from other Greubel Forsey. Its movement is mainly made of titanium and has been reconstructed to fit the new oval case.
Despite its uniqueness, the watch is impressive in many ways, especially in terms of finishing and construction.
With a depth of 100m, GMT Sport is a large organically shaped watch with no right angles, only a few edges, and only a few flat surfaces. But it has a mechanical appearance. The lugs are fixed on the case by visible screws and protruding pushers.
The structure is complex and delicate, and the most unusual function is the crystal and bezel curved on multiple planes. When viewed from the top, the case looks round, but it is actually barrel-shaped, with an oval bezel, and is bent vertically from 12 to 6 o’clock. In order to adapt to the curvature of the case, the crystal is also oval and curved, further highlighting the architectural depth of the movement.
The circumference of the baffle extends slightly outward from the housing to the integrated belt. Therefore, the watch looks much larger than what it wears. The border is 45 mm wide and the table bandwidth is only 42 mm.
The height of the entire watch is 15.7 mm, which is still large by any standard, but the titanium case and movement mean that its weight is much smaller than its appearance. This is contrary to the touch of a large and bulky conventional Greubel Forsey watch, large and light.
In fact, the entire watch, including the strap and clasp, weighs only 115 grams (about 4 ounces), which is half the weight of a typical Greubel Forsey in a precious metal case.
Although it is entirely titanium, the case is actually in two shades: the case, back and lugs are made of natural titanium, and the middle of the case is black coated titanium. The result is somewhat reminiscent of the cases of Richard Mille and Hublot, which relied on a similar two-color sandwich structure.
Two buttons are engraved to indicate its function: the “GMT” button selects the second time zone, and the second button synchronizes the local time with the globe.Where can I buy luxury replica watches?
Every element of the case has been carefully designed and completed. The surface of the lug is, for example, a brushed upper surface with a chamfered edge, which surrounds the frosted groove.
The individual baffles are impressively decorated with a variety of different finishing techniques. Its external bevel is engraved with a embossed micro-engraving of the brand concept. This element is often used on Greubel Forsey watches, and it is often used on the side of the case. Impressively, the micro-engraving makes all the text on the border unnecessary and slightly beyond the top.
New GMT movement
Although this movement has basically the same function as the first GMT watch, it has been modified from scratch to adapt to the new oval curved case.
The watch is a world timer because the globe works with the city disc on the back and the second time zone indicator at 10 o’clock. But the core of the dial is a three-dimensional globe at eight o’clock, which rotates counterclockwise every 24 hours and moves in the direction of the earth’s rotation. A globe fixed on the base alone can visually see the time around the world through the 24-hour sapphire ring on its edge.
Although geography knowledge is required, with the loop, time around the world can be estimated. In addition, it can also double as a day and night indicator, dividing the 24-hour ring into two halves, the darker part indicates nighttime and the brighter part indicates daytime.
The 24-hour globe is combined with another major invention of Greubel Forsey – the 25° tilt tourbillon moves quickly, rotates every 24 seconds, and uses a lightweight cage. Although mechanically the same as the tilting tourbillon of the earlier model, the style execution here has been adjusted to match the design of the watch. Therefore, the tourbillon is fixed in place by a black polished steel bridge, forming a soft “V” shape, but its center is concave and the surface is coated with a matte black coating.
Although such exotic tourbillons have more visual purposes, the principle behind the tilted tourbillon and all the tourbillons of the brand stems from its strong interest in improving accuracy. In fact, compared to static pocket watches or clocks, improving the tourbillon used on the wrist is one of the basic motivations of the brand.
In contrast to a vertical or dual-axis tourbillon, a tilted tourbillon allows the use of a fairly large balance wheel without requiring an unreasonably thick watch case.
According to Greubel Forsey, tilting it from the horizontal plane avoids the most extreme gravity error in the balance wheel, while still averaging the error on the second plane of the balance wheel. The result is actually close to a two-axis tourbillon, while making the movement’s height easy to control. Where can I buy beautiful replica watches for women?
