Greubel Forsey GMT rose gold

Greubel Forsey GMT rose gold 5N movement / white gold case on body and wrist

Open your eyes and appreciate true ultra-high-end watchmaking. Greubel Forsey clearly defines the very best that watchmaking can produce: bold design, uncompromising attention to materials, superb execution and the hand-processing of all individual pieces, mechanical innovation and a constant quest for extreme precision . But even for those of us tortured observer journalists, wearing and wearing a watch like this is always impressive. This is a Greubel Forsey GMT Rose Gold 5N Movement/Platinum Case in Flesh and Wrist.

Greubel Forsey GMT is no stranger to us at Monochrome-Watches (and neither should you), as we’ve covered it and dealt with it several times (eg here or here). But then again, when I put on a watch, I’m always happy to have so much attention to detail and movement on my wrist. Unless you’re a retailer or billionaire of the brand, you certainly won’t be wearing Greubel Forsey on your wrist very often (unfortunately, that’s not to say you probably never will). However, it’s still a difficult watch brand to understand because of the entry-level watch, the Greubel Forsey Tourbillon 24 Second Vision. Why these crazy prices? Well, of course there is an explanation, but it requires a high level of education in watches. Don’t try to explain this watch to your cousin from the Midwest…he certainly won’t get it – who cares, Greubel Forsey isn’t designed for a mass product.

Let’s talk about movement and function first. As you can see, the dial of the Greubel Forsey GMT is very busy (like most other cheap Greubel Forsey watches – the separation of the indications is a kind of hallmark of the brand – look at the Greubel Forsey QP à Equation, for example). So the dial is busy at first, but its display is far from incomprehensible (the watch’s large diameter and the large opening of the dial allow for fairly large subdials). Let’s list the indications on the front (because there’s more on the movement side): the local hours and minutes in the main sub-dial are at 12, the seconds hand in the sub-dial that crosses the main dial is at 2:30, the power reserve indicator is at 3, 24-second tilting tourbillon at 5, earth indicating world time zone at 8, home time subdial at 10. Note that it’s not that complicated to read. The hands and markers are large, with strong contrast, and the display is very clear.

Turn the watch and you’ll see…not what you expected. There are no visible gears, wheels, levers, but mostly simple bridges and discs showing universal time, represented by 24 major cities, each in a different time zone. The latest sign is as functional as it is beautiful: the lighter sector identifies cities where both summer and winter time regimes apply. Another thing you can notice is this gold wheel engraved with a 7-spoke star, which actually creates a connection between the globe in front and the universal hour ring – meaning both rotate at the same time.

Completely developed and produced by Greubel Forsey, this movement has a wide range of flavours. As mentioned, there are multiple indications, but there are also some technical advantages. All indications can be controlled by the crown, with the exception of the GMT hand, which can be adjusted in one-hour increments via a pusher at 10 o’clock. It also features a 24-second tourbillon that tilts 25 degrees. Why is there such a speed and why is the tourbillon tilted? Typically, the tourbillon rotates once in 60 seconds (while creating a natural and direct indicator of the small seconds) and sits on a flat axis – check out our tourbillon page and you’ll see this is the case in most cases. As a reminder, the tourbillon is a device used to counteract the negative effects of gravity on the adjustment mechanism. The balance, hairspring and escapement are placed in a cage that rotates (usually) every 60 seconds, so the adjustment mechanism is never in the same position (so gravity has less of an effect on accuracy).

Here, using Greubel Forsey GMT, we have a 24-second tourbillon that is not on a flat axis. Since the goal of the tourbillon is to counteract gravity with constant movement, you’ll easily understand that the faster you spin, the better the result. Then, applying a 25 degree angle to the shaft also tends to give the adjustment mechanism more position, and a balance wheel that is never parallel to the ground (gravity has a greater effect on the adjustment mechanism). Combining these two properties creates an ultra-strong anti-gravity device that will (theoretically) improve the watch thanks to a more stable rating (the technology that allowed Greubel Forsey to win the International Timekeeping Competition by an extremely high score in 2011). of precision and incredible precision, equipped with a Greubel Forsey double tourbillon 30 degrees).

So this watch is technically impressive. It has a real complication and a pure dedication to precision (don’t forget that precision has been a major area of ​​watchmaking research for centuries). Impressively, however, this Greubel Forsey GMT is on a mechanical basis, and there must be more reason to justify its price. The answer lies in details, execution and completion. An example: the tourbillon bridge. A piece of stainless steel intricately shaped with a handcrafted (stunning) black polish (called “poli au noir” or “poli cloqué” in French because the surface becomes almost black when viewed from certain angles. This is something that only a trained hand can get, after hours of work), a few inner corners (sharp, sharp chamfers. Something a machine can’t do), polished screw slots, gold kardon….. Well, this small and single piece sums up the quality of work done by Greubel Forsey.

However, such details apply to the entire watch. Bridges made of German silver (maillechort), matte finish (again only handcrafted), 5N rose gold plated, large, shiny polished bevels, polished screw slots, hot blue screws (heads black polished and inverted corner slits), hand-engraving… All the elements of the movement (gears, wheels, pinions) are also finished, not a single part is directly machined. We can also notice the polished titanium bridges of the tourbillon cage or the dial made of solid gold.

Then there are the decorative parts (as opposed to the technical ones): the case, the hands, the dial… As you can see, the globe at 12 is not flat, but 3D and engraved with raised continents. It is made of titanium, and as you can clearly see in the previous article, it is done with great precision. The hands are made of white gold and mirror-polished. The dial is made of solid gold with a grained center and a circular brushed finish on the periphery. Again, very haute horlogerie here.

Finally came this case, again a rather complicated shape. It’s curved, it’s open (with a sapphire aperture next to the globe), and it’s made of platinum with a hand mirror finish (hand satin on the sides). Applying such a finish is not easy given the curves of the lugs or the complex shape of the bezel. The Greubel Forsey GMT is not a petite watch, it measures 43.5mm and 16mm in height. Made of platinum is also heavy. However, it is still wearable. Also, we have to understand that practicality is not the main goal of this watch. Just like a Ferrari Enzo or Pagani Zonda aren’t the easiest cars to use in a city center or in a traffic jam, this watch isn’t an everyday beater (of course, if you can afford to own a Greubel Forsey every day, you should get as many as you can. wear it).

The Greubel Forsey GMT Rose Gold 5N Movement/Platinum Case replica watches for sale is a lesson in watchmaking, both technically and in execution. Completion is huge. We are on another planet. Every micron of a watch is a feast. It shows what watchmaking can produce without constraints and price not a major consideration. Some would say it’s outrageous or useless. To a certain extent, they were right. However, as with a €1,000,000 McLaren P1 or LaFerrari, it’s irrelevant for rational reasons. It’s here because some people can afford it and some people can produce it. Are the prices completely reasonable? maybe not. do we care? Not exactly, mainly because there will always be possible clients, and because it makes some people work and keeps the know-how. This is a dream machine…we all need to dream.

Greubel Forsey Introduces Tourbillon 24-Second Architecture


Greubel Forsey‘s brand style is often modern in design but traditional in decoration and construction, an approach that is best seen on watches with skeletonized movements on their dials. Now, the brand has reimagined its often classic movement aesthetics and combined it with a sleek, sharp case to create the Tourbillon 24-Second Architecture.

While the architecture is fundamentally an iteration of the brand’s fastest spinning and tilting tourbillon, it is powered by an all-new movement with diving bridges and satisfyingly sharp lines. Housed in a sleek titanium case with an integrated strap, the new movement is undoubtedly inspired by its best-selling sports watch.

initial thought
When I first saw pictures of the perfect watches, my instinct was that it lives up to its name – it’s impressive and very architectural. I love the complicated form in the movement, which creates a great depth, while also being slightly organic thanks to the curved polished bridges. The details of the streamlined case are impressive, especially the sides and edges.

In fact, the architecture is a huge step forward from its predecessors in terms of architecture, no pun intended, how it creates a more contemporary aesthetic for the movement, while retaining the iconic elements of Greubel Forsey, Such as the huge bridge used for the canon pinion. Hold the gem in your hand or jewelry.

An element of its successful architecture is the clever and generous use of geometry in the construction of the case and movement, which now rely on more forms and planes than before.

For example, not only is the case curved on the underside for a better fit, but the sides of the case also slope inward and upward, making the bezel narrower than the back of the case. This helps reduce the perceived size of the case, a useful feature for a brand known for oversized watches.

While the architecture may be the most modern Greubel Forsey to date, it still demonstrates the brand’s understanding of high-end classic watchmaking – but with a modern twist. The movement is chock-full of details like mirror-polished bridges, but they’re made of titanium instead of traditional steel.

Successfully seamlessly combining historical and contemporary watchmaking, the architecture distinguishes itself from its often completely classical counterparts, such as Voutilainen or Ferdinand Berthoud, or ultra-modern, such as fashion Richard Mille.

Perhaps because of its unique proposition, the architecture sells for around $500,000, a respectable sum but on par with comparable models from Greubel Forsey in the past. But the architecture is unique in both design and execution, making it a far more appealing proposition than the brand’s earlier offerings.

object of time
The building is an impressive object – its scale is practically almost a pocket watch – but the format and style of its execution is entirely 21st century.

One of its most modern elements is the case, which is essentially a tall sapphire ring sandwiched between the bezel and back, both of which are titanium. The sapphire ring means the wearer has a near-panoramic view of the movement, which is certainly fitting for a movement with such depth and detail.

Notably, the sapphire ring is drum-shaped with the sides sloping slightly inward towards the bezel. This makes the bezel about 2mm smaller than the case back, adding to the visual and technical complexity of the case.

As with the other 24-second tourbillon variants, one of the details worth investigating is the high-speed tourbillon inclined at 25 degrees. The barrel consists of three vertically stacked mainsprings with a running time of up to 90 hours, divided by three o’clock Sector indicator measurement of position.

But the highlight is of course the movement. The movement that forms the dial landscape does not use any large bridges or plates on the front. Instead, all moving parts are held in place by multiple bridges, giving the movement a highly technical and sophisticated look. Not only the number of bridges creates the appearance, but also the size of some of them.

Equally impressive is that all bridges are actually highly polished titanium, an alloy that is more challenging to mirror finish than steel. But Greubel Forsey goes a step further: some bridges, such as those of the barrel, are arched and rounded, a new boom for the brand.

The barrel and tourbillon are shown on the front, and the back is basically the bottom plate of the movement. The plate covers most of the back, although part of the gear train is exposed. While the plate is large, the details on the back are far from basic.

Finishing is impeccably executed as it is up front. The top of the plate is frosted, the bevel is mirror polished, and each jewel is set in a gold sleeve. One of its most refined features is the tourbillon’s lower bridge, which is brushed concentrically – and of course, all its edges are hand-chamfered.

Greubel Forsey BALANCIER S (Titanium)

In 2019, Greubel Forsey introduced the GMT Sport, which features a new case architecture that combines sculptural lines for ergonomics, robustness and comfort. Continuing their passion for exploring new paths, creative watchmakers Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey present their new sports watch, the BALANCIER S in titanium.

The BALANCIER S timepiece reinterprets a unique case that showcases a new movement. The case is round, with a distinctive domed oval shape from other angles, with integrated lugs and strap, and a satin bezel engraved with Greubel Forsey’s key values. The new “Balancier S” achieves a slim profile that enhances its dynamic new dynamics.

The rubber crown and strap with rubber inserts ensure excellent grip and protection of the timepiece. The oval domed sapphire crystal follows the curvature of the case. The bold double-suspended arched bridges carry the sloping gear train and the curved central hour and minute hands, technically and visually emphasizing the perfect penetration between the case and the movement. These striking elements are integrated and extended to the inclined balance wheel, giving the watch a strong identity while ensuring its outstanding timekeeping performance.

The large inclined balance wheel at 7 o’clock stands out. The overarching goal is to improve the chronograph function, which maximises the space provided by the domed case and sapphire crystal, linking form and function. In their relentless pursuit of precision and performance, Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey have challenged timekeeping, notably with the 24-second tourbillon, quadruple tourbillon and 30° double tourbillon Tourbillon reinvents the tourbillon mechanism. They opted for a new approach here, based on the large balance wheel introduced in 2016.

Completely developed and manufactured in the replica Greubel Forsey studio, this balance wheel, with its extra large diameter of 12.6 mm, ensures excellent timekeeping performance. For fine chronometric adjustment of the moment of inertia, the balance rim is fitted with six gold adjusting screws, embedded to limit air friction. For the first time in this new hand-wound movement, for which multiple patents have been filed, the imposing Greubel Forsey balance is inclined for the first time.

This 30° angle relative to the horizontal plane of the movement proved to be an excellent solution for limiting timing errors due to the effect of gravity on the regulating mechanisms (balance, spring and escapement) that stabilize the position. Combined with a large-diameter balance wheel and a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour, it provides this timepiece with exceptional timekeeping performance – which is also conspicuous in operation thanks to the unique movement architecture.

Mounted in tandem with two coaxial barrels, the 308-part movement has a 72-hour chronograph power reserve, displayed on a sector at 2 o’clock using a skeletonized red-tipped hand. Central hours and minutes display with contoured and skeletonised hands in polished stainless steel, with small seconds on the escapement bevel at 8 o’clock, emphasising the depth and relief of this new movement. copy watch

In keeping with the innovative spirit of Greubel Forsey, technical and architectural innovations are accomplished through unconditional care and craftsmanship for all components of the movement. Greubel Forsey Atelier has mastered this traditional and irreplaceable craftsmanship – frosted, polished beveled and countersunk, rounded and ruled grained to accentuate even the smallest surfaces.

The hand-finishing of titanium for mainplates and bridges has proven to be much more difficult than steel or even nickel-silver, and further adds to the technical and aesthetic challenges this timepiece represents.

Made of titanium, the Balancier S is water-resistant to 100 meters, and its sporty and powerful case shape is distinguished by its lightness and comfort on the wrist. Its robustness protects the movement, especially its large balance wheel, which has been tested in the Greubel Forsey EWT laboratory to ensure its reliability and timekeeping performance at all times. A flexible and durable rubber strap enhances the sporty feel, and a titanium folding clasp provides all the comfort.

Greubel Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon Secret 18k red gold watch

We often need to go back to photography archives to discover stories and timepieces we haven’t had a chance to report yet. The number of timepieces we see, photograph, and then never get a chance to report on each year is actually staggering. Browsing through some of the photos I took of the rare Greubel Forsey fake watch, I was immediately reminded of a moment in Stephen Forsey when he decided it was a good idea to wear a ‘unique edition’ quad tourbillon watch and it made my heart race The table was in front of me several times.

Why would Stephen Forsey do this to a watch worth over half a million dollars, if it breaks, it will cost a penny to fix? He’s trying to prove to me that when people spend so much money on a timepiece, they should expect a certain level of durability as well as decorativeness and sophistication. Love or hate Greubel Forsey watches, you can’t deny that their work is mechanical. Nothing proves (at least potentially) durability more than smashing a case against a table a few times. Yes, the Greubel Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon Secret watch does a great job, but now, a few months later, the experience still impresses me. It’s original and unexpected, I’d say that for sure.

When Greubel Forsey initially launched the Quadruple Tourbillon Secret (hands-on experience here in platinum) a few years ago, it was seen as an over-the-top tourbillon that Greubel Forsey himself actually helped popularize A tongue-in-cheek comment on display. Among luxury buyers, the tourbillon is not so much the holy grail for watch sports nerds as it is an indication of price, and therefore the status of the wearer. In other words, in the right circles, even those who don’t know much about watches are still trained to know that “tourbillon = expensive”.

Greubel Forsey’s own response to the growing popularity of the tourbillon mechanism was to create a timepiece with a tourbillon that no one else could (or would not) make. For example, the movement of the Greubel Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon contains two tourbillons, each containing a smaller tourbillon. As such, the model can claim to have four tourbillons – each of which is actually a bit unique in the tourbillon scheme – something other tourbillon watch makers are unlikely to offer.

Currently, no other timepiece of the brand has more tourbillons than the Greubel Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon equipped with the GF03 movement. So, what’s the best way to play with this concept? Of course, the tourbillon is hidden. In fact, the only major difference between the standard quadruple tourbillon and Greubel Forsey’s secret quadruple tourbillon is the dial (there are a few other minor detail differences). The two places on the dial where the double tourbillon assembly could once be seen are now closed and the dial looks more traditional.

I’m a little confused as to why the brand refers to these Greubel Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon Secret watches as part of a “unique edition” since each of these two editions is a limited edition of eight pieces. “Unique” often means only one thing, so you can understand my confusion. Regardless, these are still extremely rare watches that will only appeal to a small group of watch collectors. I suspect the Greubel Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon Secret watch is the brand’s first men fake watch.

At 43.5mm wide and 16.11mm thick, the Greubel Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon Secret isn’t a petite watch, but it’s very wearable – honestly, like most Greubel Forsey timepieces. As a lover of black and gold, I really like the combination of the black dial with the 18k red gold case and applied dial elements. Proper organization also ensures that everything is nice and clear.

Even if you don’t see the four tourbillons visually through the dial of the Greubel Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon Secret, there’s still “helpful” text on the face that reminds you what’s going on in the movement. In addition to the “Quad Tourbillon” printed on the dial, you can get more hints explaining what you’re seeing. This actually matters for those who happen to wish to use the watch, as at least some of the metrics are not standard.

Only three of the six hands on the dial of the Greubel Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon Secret are used to indicate the time (at least traditionally). You also have a power-reserve indicator hand as well as two external tourbillon hands, each of which rotates every four minutes (240 seconds). Inside the outer four-minute tourbillon are two smaller one-minute tourbillons, which are inclined at a 30-degree angle and rotate every 60 seconds. According to Greubel Forsey, the seconds hand on the dial shows an average of 60 seconds, depending on the performance of the two tourbillon structures.

To a large extent, that’s what it’s all about having multiple tourbillons in one movement, even intellectually. The idea is to average their performance (one double tourbillon ready to run slower than ideal, the other faster than ideal – averaging them close to the desired 0 deviation), hoping for maximum performance. While Greubel Forsey does produce the most accurate tourbillon-based mechanical movements, in some ways it is futile to improve the precision of mechanical movements, as electronic timekeeping will always beat the most perfect mechanical movements anyway. . Then again, it’s all about passion and engineering…even if we want to imagine there are situations where these objects are still relied upon as tools.

This particular edition of the Greubel Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon Secret in 18k red gold is a prototype, so there may be some changes between it and the final piece, but for the most part, this is the final model. Flip the watch over and the “secret” disappears, revealing the beautifully crafted Greubel Forsey GF03j hand-wound mechanical movement, which is where most of the item’s value lies. The “j” refers to the movements present in the secret edition Greubel Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon, which are made of 509 parts, 260 of which are for the tourbillon alone.

Each balance wheel operates at 3Hz (21,600bph), and the movement has a power reserve of 50 hours (not bad, since the movement needs to power four tourbillons). For a timepiece at this price point, the movement is clearly as stunning as you could hope for. This includes everything from the amount of polish you get from each small movement component to the clever textures and finishes you see on every part of the movement. Movement enthusiasts will have great pleasure scrutinizing every angle of this and other Greubel Forsey movements – as Mr. Forsey kindly showed me, movements are designed to be both durable and decorative .

Greubel Forsey watches are sometimes accused of lacking elegance. If you measure it by the tendency to promote traditional design elements like pure symmetry, then no, Greubel Forsey watches are not elegant. Instead, I see the concept as a well-established function and stay true to my own values ​​and design elements. Clearly, Greubel Forsey’s timepieces don’t want to look like anyone else’s. These watches strive to be legible, while also serving as a frame for the inner workings, something Greubel Forsey really wants its buyers to appreciate. Although these are undoubtedly extremely luxurious items,

So if it’s good enough for Stephen Forsey, is it good enough for you? It all depends on whether you like his particular values ​​as a watchmaker, who came across in that meeting as being very forthright and confident, but not pretentious. I have to say that, in general, some of the most talented watchmakers like Stephen Fauci and Robert Grubel have absolutely no unpleasant egos at all, and many consider them to be super expensive “ultra-luxury” watches part of the world. Don’t worry, though, there’s a lot of lost egos in the actual sales process in a retail environment.

Given the inherent theme of the Greubel Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon Secret, it’s hard not to like it, even if buyers with enough cash to enjoy this particular wrist statement are rare. For something so expensive, can you blame others for wanting to show it off? That being said, in the right circles, timepieces like the Greubel Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon Secret say exactly the right information for the wearer, which is why rare timepieces like this even exist. luxury replica watches

Hands-on: Greubel Forsey Balancier S2 Watch

Today, I experienced first-hand the latest in a new generation of ultra-high-end sports watches from fake Greubel Forsey. This is the Balancier S2 in a titanium case and I’ve been able to wear it on the strap and neat titanium bracelet. The purpose of this watch is, in a sense, an answer to the question: what brand can compare to Richard Mille? This has been a hot topic of debate among some members of the luxury watch industry. You see, Richard Mille was never the only million-dollar watch game in town, but it’s the story of a rare ultra-premium brand that consistently sells more watches than it produces. Everyone wants a piece of what Richard Mille wants, and companies like Greubel Forsey think they can offer something that really appeals to consumers – even if it’s a Richard Mille replacement (for now).

I sat in Dubai with Mr. Antonio Calce, the new CEO of Greubel Forsey, as he explained the new brand strategy. Greubel Forsey has already mastered its business with plans to increase production (we’re only talking about a few hundred more watches a year), but also a bigger marketing campaign considering the brand’s reputation has always been solid and cautious wave. Until recently, the Greubel Forsey I knew had never had a CEO other than its founders, Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey. From what I understand, the company is largely independent with the exception of a small stake owned by Richemont, and the appointment of Mr Calce is a big step.

Greubel Forsey makes watches that are well-constructed, built to last, and of exceptional workmanship. In my experience, they are probably the best finished watches of any company that mass-produces timepieces. The Balancier S2 (actually “Balancier S 2” – but I don’t think most people know how to type the ‘squared’ 2 superscript) is closer to the brand’s entry-level price point, and Mr Calce made it clear, looking to the future. Products like the Balancier S2 hint at where they plan to go.

In 2019, Greubel Forsey debuted this special curved case on aBlogtoWatch at Dubai Watch Week in conjunction with GMT Sport. Two years later, Greubel Forsey has decided to unveil the new Balancier S2 at Dubai Watch Week 2021, and it’s great. The case is titanium and is probably the best part of the whole package. It’s 46.5mm wide, but don’t let the size fool you – it’s really comfortable to wear. The case and bezel have an interesting curvature that echoes the shape of the sapphire crystal. This interesting mix of shapes makes the watch extremely conservative in some angles and very edgy in others. Very few case designs I’ve come across do this.

Although the Balancier is arguably the simplest movement Greubel Forsey has ever produced, it is by no means boring. Actually quite the opposite, as its appeal lies in how the various elements of motion are rendered and shaped. The whole point of a Balancier watch movement is the tilted position of the balance wheel, similar to the 24-degree tilt of many of the brand’s tourbillons. I believe the idea is that they found this incline to be the ideal position in a watch to average out where it sits (since gravity affects performance in a slight way) while wearing it naturally on the wrist every day. The way the diagonally sloping balance is presented in the dial and movement is part of the fun, and the dial looks like it’s curved downwards, hence the visual chromatic aberration of the lower layers of the watch’s dial.

The hand-wound movement itself runs at 3Hz and has a power reserve of approximately 72 hours. It has a power reserve indicator next to the exposed mainspring barrel. Near the striking balance wheel assembly is a small but efficient auxiliary seconds dial. The overall design may be what Greubel Forsey considers futuristic. It won’t quite put them in a design museum, but the overall look is satisfying and a welcome point of view for anyone who’s been a replica Greubel Forsey fan for some time.

Will it impress newcomers to the Greubel Forsey brand? That’s a good question, and likely to achieve what the brand wants, it needs to combine a product design strategy with great and clever cultural penetration through an effective marketing campaign, like Richard Mille at least started doing as it was ten years ago now. For what it’s worth, I think the premium sports watch market is big enough for more than one brand to stand out in the upper echelon. There may be room in the world for multi-million dollar sports watch brands.

A matching titanium bracelet completes this new sports case look. The bracelet does look a bit like a Richard Mille bracelet and has been polished as you would expect from a Greubel Forsey. The deploying clasp is satisfying and has a fine-tuning system. That said, the mechanism is familiar, and in the future, I would like to see more original mechanisms in Greubel Forsey branded bracelets, because I think they can design something wild. (That, or they could hire Roland Iten to help.) As a limited edition, Greubel Forsey will only make 152 Balancier S2s in total. In case you haven’t noticed, they actually come in two different grey dial colours, light grey and dark grey.

GMT, the first true Greubel Forsey complication?

Stricto Sensu, high power reserve or tourbillon are not complications. Complications were defined as additional function rather than improvement in HMS function. Greubel Forsey luxury watch

Aside from the flimsy power reserve and the excellent work of the builders, Steven Fauci and Robert Grubel never added complexity to their horological cathedral. Even the quadruple or double tech tourbillons don’t bring any extra functionality, despite their excellent accuracy (CF’s victory in the Chronometry competition).

The GMT, broadly named, reveals a complexity whose plumage’s interest is inversely proportional to the sobriety of its song.

This watch is the next step in the three-dimensional work that Greubel Forsey has pursued so far.

Classic elegance tends towards ultra-flat cases, and GF always goes against the trend with very chunky models. GF’s pursuit of precision by tilting the tourbillon greatly affects the thickness of the case.

Internally, the main discussion had to focus on how to make optimal use of these volumes, something almost never seen in watchmaking.

Digression: Maybe GF should overhaul their design (like the “Histoire de Tourbillon 3”, a watch produced by Harry Winston in collaboration with GF’s design office Complitime). Because the classic round case is offbeat compared to the iconoclastic design of the GF movement.

So, to get up to speed, GF had to apply their outstanding talent in 3D design to their new work.

This GMT pays off with a giant globe made of anodized titanium.

Now, of course, electroplating isn’t very glamorous. However, comparing electroplating to a chemistry class on this world map is akin to comparing the work of a microsurgeon to that of a veterinarian.

The globe (13mm diameter) is engraved with precision drill bits, while the continents are covered with a protective coating. Then, the exposed area, the ocean, is attacked by the acid. The parts are then coated with several coats of electroplating to produce these magnificent seas of lacquered blue.

A related technology used in this 24-second tourbillon, remember HW Opus VI:
Mounted on its south pole axis, this mini-Earth rotates counterclockwise like our planet in 24 hours.

A pusher at 11 o’clock advances the time zone while displaying it at 11 o’clock, while a disc on the back of the case displays the 24 time zones as well as summer and winter times.
Contrary to white cities, black cities do not have daylight saving time.

Summer time is on the central ring, while “standard” time is on the outer ring.

Undoubtedly, this device takes time to get used to, which shouldn’t be a problem for the lucky owner of this beauty. Discount watches

Based on its layout, the disk is somewhat reminiscent of the Pirata GMT from Cuervos y Sobrinos, a piece more travel-friendly than many GMT watches.

Here, without searching for Gogol, who knows Astana, Apia or F. de Noronha?

The overall design uses more concentric circles than ever before; of course, the device resembles a planetary gear, and features Earth at its peak. The power reserve indicator is at 3 pm, the second time zone is at 10 o’clock, while the world time is of course displayed between 6 and 8 o’clock, indicated by the rotation of the earth. The case measures 43.5 x 16mm, but it’s more bulky than the Luminor’s 44mm, as its aperture and thickness appear to be only 45mm. Indeed, this watch is not for lovers of fine ultra-thin watches, in addition, the twist of the 25° inclined tourbillon and a very fast 24 seconds. The spin reminds us that dreams have become reality.

Off topic: Like most of GF’s products, the case has a hole on one side that allows the Earth to be seen through the clear sapphire.

Now, let’s imagine that the globe is covered with polarized glass on the dial, which allows light to go out but not in; light only comes in from the sides, so the earth will be covered in the same way the sun’s rays illuminate the earth illuminate.

When one cannot increase the surface area any further, one adds volume, as is the case with buildings (especially those in New York, whose designs are one of the watchmakers’ main sources of inspiration).

From replica MB&F to Greubel-Forsey to Hautlence, independent watchmakers have changed the design of complications and displays by adding height as an extra dimension in their quest for updates.

With this GMT, their first three-dimensional watch with a complication, GF has reached a turning point in its evolution, at least as important as Invention 1; Complications are reinterpreted in new dimensions, and they can create new standards in watchmaking.

Greubel Forsey Renaissance d’une Montre: a special plan to breathe new life into old watches

Greubel Forsey replica provides an option to breathe new life into old watches. Not only has aesthetic changes, but also added new functions and indications. We explored the complexity of this new idea, which will be launched in 2023.

This is an interesting concept. Perhaps the first product offered by any watchmaker. They will be responsible for upgrading your Koppelfort watch. Not only can the external parts and aesthetics be changed, but also the movement can be changed. Modifications are not limited to aesthetic changes, but also include the addition of new functions and instructions. This is only possible because Koppelfors is a fully integrated manufacturer that knows how to make and improve every part of the watches they create. This is also a confident expression of their technical ability. Although we can’t imagine how complicated it would be to incorporate new features, functions, indicators and aesthetics into their watches, we can certainly see that this is a very difficult task. One is the most difficult and requires the best skills.

Greubel Forsey is already giving us a glimpse of the product. For example, the current owner of the Balancier Contemporain (regardless of the version, including the version launched in 2017), this is already a very good watch, with the option of being equipped with a second time zone, tilting escapement, and even a tourbillon ( To replace the plane balance wheel) wheel) for modification. Please note that the original Balancier Contemporain was a chronograph without a tilted balance wheel. Tilt balance was added to a variant called Balancier S released in August 2020, but even this new model is not equipped with a second time zone.

By the way, on November 21st, Dubai Watch Week will release a new version of Balancier S (called Balancier S²), which will carry this new face of the brand. We have seen the release material and it is great and can’t wait to see the real watch to process and photograph it for a full review.

Renaissance d’une Montre – Balancier Contemporain
As another example, the gorgeous GMT already displays local time, second time zone and world time through its earth and city dials, and can be equipped with another time zone display that is coaxial with the hour and minute hands.

Renaissance d’une Montre – GMT
As a final example, the Tourbillon 24 Secondes Vision can be equipped with a small seconds dial at 4 o’clock, a large date display, moon phases, or its power reserve can be modified to support the 3D method of double tourbillon 30° technology.

Greubel Forsey Renaissance d’une Montre
“Our studio is constantly developing rapidly. Our timepieces are more advanced than ever in terms of accuracy, reliability and innovation. However, our customers are very much Interested. How can we preserve the soul of these timepieces while providing them with the best expertise we currently have?”.

The questions raised by Antonio Calce, CEO of Greubel Forsey and member of the Executive Board, have been answered in the automotive and aerospace industries. Through a plan aimed at retrofitting existing vehicles, the brand was able to retain the chassis, history and soul of one of the vehicles while providing it with a major engine update.

This is exactly the principle of the “Renaissance d’une Montre” project. Its name is reminiscent of the long-term “Naissance d’une Montre” project hosted by Greubel Forsey, and it will soon provide a “remake” for the brand’s creation. Owners of certain Gaupper-Force timepieces will soon be able to contact la Chaux-de-Fonds Atelier to request changes to the external parts and even the movement of their high quality replica watches in order to provide them with new aesthetics or new functions and instructions. Same Timepiece, same story, same soul, but every owner will be able to work closely with the brand to conceive a second life.

This innovative plan is the first in the history of haute horology. Once the different possibilities offered by each movement are analyzed and recognized, the plan will be fully implemented from January 2023.

Greubel Forsey fake is a fully integrated manufacturer with a wide range of possibilities. The “Renaissance d’une Montre” program will also extend to external elements, such as the case material, strap, crown or pointer color. In fact, every work reworked in this way will become a very private and personalized creation.


If there is any progress in the new version, this year’s SIHH promises to be a good year for everyone. This year, Gaopafusi will release three new models, but only one is brand new.

These three products are Différentiel d’Égalité, GMT Earth and Double Balancier. Différentiel d’Égalité is new, not an updated incarnation.

Let’s start with the new entry, the shiny new Différentiel d’Égalité, with the fifth invention of Robert Gaupper and Stephen Fauci as the supreme glory.


Don’t worry, you can forgive asking “What the hell is that?” They are a story, like this;

In 2008, in the distant universe, Greubel Forsey introduced a new and better balance wheel to the world “via Baselworld”, providing a stable mainspring energy transmission rate. This is good news, I heard you yelling… Well, yes, of course, all improvements are welcome, but what does all this mean?

Basically, the fifth invention achieves its task by installing auxiliary springs on the differential. The auxiliary spring can reset itself every 5 seconds, helping to regulate a constant energy transfer rate.

So what’s new?
At the time, this was more like a proof of concept than a feasible implementation, but now, after all, the fifth invention has been improved, perfected and produced to provide a mechanism to reset itself every second to maintain normal energy transfer. Not only that, the Différentiel d’Égalité is also equipped with a 30° tilting balance wheel from Guberfors. When the crown is pulled out, this allows the mechanism to stop and the second hand is set to zero, which means higher accuracy. wrist watches for men

Greenwich Mean Time Earth
If you are familiar with previous avatars, you might ask what is new here? The answer lies in the 3D globe design at 7 o’clock. In the new model, the glode is now more visible. In the past, the earth rotated once every 24 hours, and only the northern half could be seen. Now, with the introduction of sapphire glass, the entire earth can be seen from the front, back and sides.

All other functions you are familiar with are the same, the hours, minutes, small seconds, and 72-hour power reserve indicator remain unchanged. Through the back cover you can see the GMT time indicator and the 24-time zone universal time indicator, and the watch retains a 24-second tourbillon tilted 25°.

Double balancer
The Double Balancier, which debuted at SIHH in 2016, is a lovely piece with a platinum and silver-plated dial for the first time. This year, it was changed to a 43 mm 5N red gold case, a black multi-layer gold dial, engraved and oven-baked enamel hour markers.

New Greubel Forsey GMT sports on the metal bracelet

The GMT movement occurs in huge titanium and blue quality. More ergonomic and modern, this GMT movement is the first replica Greubel Forsey Creation with a fully integrated metal bracelet. With new baffles and new fins, this limited edition is an exciting evolution, only 33 collectors will have the opportunity to find the first hand.

In the GMT movement, the center stage is taken in the GMT, and the unique Greubel Forsey Bezel now blogs gradually ease the key value of relief engraving and adopts a complete new file. Take a hand-made level on top and hand-polished contours and side flashes directly grinding, the baffle is soft and eye-catching new form, the baffles are exquisite, open up the dial to attract greater focus – basically – Greubel Forsey Movement And manual finishing, feature of each clock.

This new completion highlights the unique image of the BEZEL of GMT Sport, which is an oval ellipse, bent down at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock to embrace the silhouette of the wrist – a passion, reiterate this contemporary, daily style Perfect ergonomics exclusive watches.

This ergonomic design is further pursuing in this new bracelet of this GMT – this is the first metal bracelet on the Greubel Forsey Creation. It is fully imagined in Atelier, specifically used for this time meter, which is completely integrated into the GMT motion, and analyzes the ellipse seamless followed by the housing and the baffle. Faithful to its tradition, Greubel Forsey is committed to using three different styles distributed in three horizontal and central circles: linear gravel, matte and manual polishing bevel.

For example, select the sugar cream to respond to the finish of the lugs, emphasize the aesthetic continuity between the housing and the bracelet. The latter is made of 5-stage titanium, lightweight, rugged, very powerful. It has a fine adjustment system that provides valuable millimeter games, allowing the wearer to choose from loose and casual or comfortable wristbands.

As for the move, this new Greubel Forsey Sport is the first unified color: motherboard, bridge, global, second time zone dial and Tetaway 24 seconds 24 seconds indicator ring in the same blue finish in the same blue finish . The central suspension arch bridge and the gyro bridge are transparent to highlight the three-dimensional motion architecture of its strong blue finish.

On the one hand, the polishing ingredients of the side are deep, matte blue, and the polishing ingredients of titanium (bridge, global) or steel (hand, power reserves) emphasize the strong contrast of sports itself and ensures perfect readability. Due to its 42 mm housing diameter (45 mm on the baffle), this movement technology expression and intuitive central clock and a few minutes, the second time zone, the power supply reserve at 3 o’clock and the electric reserve of the rotating land It is completely harmonious. Earth in 8 o’clock. high luxury store

Through this new uniform, it is more refined, more refined than ever, and provides a new expression for their two signature creations. Their third invention is between 12 o’clock in 24 seconds between 12 o’clock and 2 o’clock. Since its cage is tilted at a 25 ° angle and complete full rotation within 24 seconds, the gyro 24 seconds is a high programming performance – except for the truly unique visual effect.

The land is then between 7pm to 9 o’clock. More than anything else, it reflects the three-dimensional time display of the Greubel Forsey champion. Due to the present invention, complete rotation is performed within 24 hours, it can be easily and intuitive to read the general time.

From the top of the Arctic, a ring with 24-hour tag allows all vertical portions to read all vertical times, and also behave as one day / night. On the case belt, the disc is displayed by the city name surrounded by 2 rings allows the wearer to read the UTC general and summer time of 24 cities in 24 major time zones. It also distinguishes between time zones that will take summer time (on light background) with those who are not (in dark background).

Greubel Forsey-Titanium GMT Quad Tourbillon

First launched by Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey in 2019, this outstanding GMT quad tourbillon is now in the titanium watch Available in a new limited edition of 11 pieces, with new colors and finishes.

In this timepiece, the combination of the quadruple tourbillon and the iconic rotating globe provides a breathtaking interpretation of the GMT function.

The four tourbillons are constructed in pairs in a unique compact cage system. Each of these two systems is modeled on the Double Tourbillon 30° (double tourbillon), the first cage rotates and tilts 30° within 1 minute, and is installed in the second vertical cage within 4 minutes Finish the rotation inside.

The spherical difference is used to average the timing of two autonomous oscillators to improve timing performance. The system has been granted two patents.

In this new version, the 46.5 mm x 17.45 mm case of the GMT quad tourbillon is made of titanium. This material has the characteristics of strength, corrosion resistance and light weight. Compared with the platinum case, the weight is reduced by three points. More than luxury replica watches

All dials are located at different heights, with the highest point being the main hour/minute dial between 1 o’clock and 2 o’clock. The dial provides some new finishing details, such as a round particle hour circle with a polished bevel and a 72-hour chronograph power reserve indicator. The first time bright blue is used or it has been frosted and found to have a polished bevel, counter hole and The main board on the side of the ruled grain, and finished in gray.

The globe positioned at 8 o’clock shows several different time zones at the same time, and its blue uniform is very prominent. The sapphire crystal glass window surrounding the equator makes the clock more perfect, so that you have a complete understanding of the earth in motion.
