GREUBEL FORSEY BALANCIER contemporary

GREUBEL FORSEY BALANCIER CONTEMPORAIN offers three styles, two gem-set styles and a white gold unadorned version. Every face of the timepiece shines with the brilliance of the clock. In short, the fascinating aesthetic is combined with perfect surface treatment and excellent mechanical properties.

In the rare world of fine watches, the watchmaking industry has continued centuries of purist traditions. Some companies have been operating for two or three hundred years. History often gives legitimacy and implies a certain degree of expertise. However, sometimes some practitioners of advanced watchmaking abandon this recognized wisdom.

Greubel Forsey was founded in 2004 by Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey. Based in the suburbs of La Chaux-de-Fonds, the watchmaking capital of Switzerland, this relatively young Maison has earned a reputation for meeting the needs of the most discerning drinkers.

This respected company is famous for its tourbillon. However, Greubel Forsey not only copied the 1801 invention of Breguet (Breguet), but also conceived a clever adaptation of the “whirlwind” that dreams demand. For example, the double tourbillon 30° includes two cages that rotate at different speeds and are positioned at different angles. This “invention” provides excellent accuracy and averages position errors due to gravity. This proprietary technology has been used in models of multiple brands.

Double tourbillon 30°

Despite the originality of the 30°Double Tourbillon, Greubel Forsey has never wavered and is constantly seeking innovation. As the name suggests, four tourbillons use four tourbillons connected to a spherical differential. The system gives “accurate and reliable timing rates, especially in stable positions”. The quadruple tourbillon is Maison’s second invention.

Quadruple Tourbillon

Innovation is at the core of the Greubel Forsey paradigm. This aggressive company has planned a total of seven inventions. It has provided solutions to problems that almost nobody wants to ask. However, the answers provided have been recognized by industry insiders. This brand’s relentless pursuit of perfection is extraordinary.

Finissage

I often write articles about high-end watches and am amazed. I especially like hand-beveled bridges. The purpose of chamfering or polishing is to form a 45° angle between the bridge deck and its sides. The best example of this technique shows that the bevel width does not fluctuate or change. In addition, the chamfered edges present a bright sheen, which is in sharp contrast to the adjacent surface.

The most challenging type of surface treatment to be achieved by finisseur is black polishing (sometimes called “mirror polishing” or “mirror polishing”). This mirror-like finish can almost become black at some angles, and white at other angles. Black polishing can capture light and provide excellent contrast. Generally, this type of surface treatment is achieved using tinplate and fine diamond paste. The final finish should be perfectly smooth and flawless.

Although Greubel Forsey may not be the oldest brand, its youth has nothing to do with its expertise. I can say clearly that I think Greubel Forsey is the best representative of the financial industry.

My favorite Greubel Forsey model so far

Over the years, I checked various Greubel Forsey discount watches and temporarily placed them on my wrist, keeping in mind the coveted cost. Some examples I like, completely follow the original aesthetics, technical virtues and unparalleled decoration. On the contrary, the appearance of some watches is not what I like. However, regardless of the style of the model, there is always mechanical accuracy and completeness. Quite simply, watchmaking is no better than this.

At the 2019 Geneva International Watch and Jewellery Show (SIHH), the Swiss company launched a new watch, Greubel Forsey Balancier Contemporain. The model is housed in a medium-sized gold case and offers three variants, one is the unmodified version and the other is two models with gemstones. Normally, I avoid a gem-set watch, but when the platinum version is attached to my wrist, I immediately succumb to its charm.

dial

Although many dials are flat, in addition to prominent time scales, Greubel Forsey Balancier Contemporain also uses a three-dimensional structure. The countless levels of clocks and watches have given people great interest.

The hours and minutes are displayed on the eccentric dial at 3 o’clock. This multi-layer gold dial is set with mother-of-pearl and decorated with small polished beveled circles. An opening between 6 o’clock and 8 o’clock allows you to see the balance more clearly.

The power reserve indicator is located on the frosted surface directly below the hours and minutes display. A soft hand moves along the curved track above the neat scale. When both barrels have been wound, the movement can run automatically for 72 hours (chronograph power reserve – see below). The mirror-polished scale of the power reserve reflects the beautiful light of the engraved spring barrel nearby.

At noon, a gold watch nail sits in a polished sink, adhering to superb watchmaking craftsmanship. The smaller taper shank is located nearby, almost hidden by the hour and minute display above.

The small second hand is displayed at a position lower than the power reserve indicator. The dial of the small second hand is mother-of-pearl, blending pure black brushstrokes. Similar to the main hours and minutes display, the small seconds display shows polished beveled small circles.

Note the hollow dial and mirror finish below the balance wheel.

The last stage acts as the host for the large balance wheel and its supporting bridge. The bridge has hand polished bevels and holes, light black polished and straight grained sides. On the undecorated model, the balance bridge and escapement are located on the vast mirror-polished sea surface, making the scene of the balance wheel swinging back and forth clear and bright. The frosted effect of the gem-set version is lower than the balance and no black polishing is required.

The decision to create a multi-level dial inherited the noble design language of Greubel Forsey. It abandons the flat appearance of many dials, but adopts a sculptural appearance, and is filled with many layers, textures and surface treatments. This method does increase the depth of the head, but its final thickness of 12.25mm is not puzzling.

case

After adding gems, the diameter of Greubel Forsey Balancier Contemporain has increased by 2 mm (the diameter of the gem-set version is 41.6 mm). The difference is that the Swiss brand chose to use a larger case to set gems, thus leaving more space on the bezel to accommodate diamonds. In some companies, the so-called “bean counter” will say “economy of scale” and insist that “one size fits all methods.” Fortunately, Greubel Forsey does not approve of this cynical watch production method.

This model represents a new chapter in the history of the brand. To date, all models are larger and may alienate some potential buyers. I suggest that the undecorated version with a diameter of 39.6mm actually fits all wrists.

What makes this watch so good is that despite its moderate size, the design still uses the three-dimensional dial structure that the Swiss company is famous for, and it shows the adjustment mechanism in all the bare brilliance.

Greubel Forsey swiss offers white gold Balancier Contemporain for unmodified and gem-set variants. In addition, this gem-set watch also offers 18 carats of 5N rose gold. The gem-set case is decorated with 232 baguette-cut diamonds (a total of 9.58 carats). Everything exudes effervescent beauty.

Some gem-set watches may look ostentatious, but for Greubel Forsey Balancier Contemporain, there is no such criticism. Indeed, the model of superb watchmaking is impeccable and the model of taste.

The back of the case is domed sapphire crystal glass. The bottom cover under the dome is engraved with engraved lettering, which is presented in relief. These words are called “Greubel Forsey Key Values” and are embellished with black polish. The center of the bottom cover is a red and gold plate with the Maison logo. Three gold cases are inlaid with rugby-shaped jewelry. The highly polished countersink highlights the color of ruby.

motion

The manual winding movement is composed of 255 parts, 33 of which are jewelry. The diameter of the movement is 32.4mm and the thickness is 9.2mm.

Two “fast rotating barrels (1 turn in 3.2 hours)” connected in series have a 72-hour timekeeping function. The watch will continue to run after the above 72 hours, although its accuracy will be reduced. I chatted with Stephen Fawsey and asked if he had considered a shutdown, which caused the watch to stall after 72 hours of operation. Stephen explained to me that the space inside the case is too small to accommodate this function, and inevitably, the addition of a stop device will result in a higher selling price. I feel unable to refute these compelling arguments.

One of the barrels is equipped with “sliding springs to avoid excessive tension”.

A balance equipped with a simple index adjuster (racket) will clamp the balance spring. Moving the index adjuster can increase/decrease the effective length of the hairspring, thereby changing the swing amplitude accordingly. However, the problem with this method is that the hairspring cannot breathe concentrically, thereby reducing accuracy.

Greubel Forsey has equipped Balancier Contemporain with a variable inertial balance wheel. Adjust the speed by tightening or loosening the screws on the rim of the balance. These heavier screws affect the moment of inertia and the speed by default. In this case, the balance wheel is equipped with six golden usual screws on the inside. By fixing the screws on the board, air turbulence can be reduced and accuracy can be improved. The frequency of the balance is 21,600 VpH (3 Hz).

The hairspring is secured by shiny bolts in Geneva style. The hairspring has a Phillips end curve. By increasing the final coil of the hairspring, the concentricity of the spring is enhanced, thereby contributing to accuracy.

The internal balance is paired with the brand’s own balance spring. This is amazing because the company only produces 100 timepieces per year, so the cost of each spring must be many times higher than using the fixed pin option. However, although Greubel Forsey could have obtained a cheap helix from Nivarox and others, it was still very independent and apparently wanted complete control of the balance wheel and hairspring. This is just one of several examples of the correctness of the brand’s watches.

Greubel Forsey has equipped Balancier Contemporain Balancier Contemporain with a “stop balance” system, which allows the wearer to easily time and synchronize with the reference clock.

Behind the sturdy bottom cover is an impeccable cornucopia. The list of finishing techniques is long, including matte, specks, chamfers, polished countersinks, straight lines and the brand’s favorite fetish, black polish. The bridge and plate are treated with nickel-palladium. Despite not seeing many craftsmanship, it still has an unwavering technical beauty.

The dial of Greubel Forsey Balancier Contemporain is very practical. The thick lan hour and minute hands indicate the current time with a clear loudness. But despite its impressive readability, it cannot escape the deep beauty of the dial.

Frosting gives the dial a magnificent appearance. The three-dimensional layered dial composition further enhances the attractiveness of the model. Nonetheless, all these discussions reminded me of the large balance wheel at the bottom of the dial and the perfect bridge to hold it in place. Almost no other scene can rotate back and forth beyond the balance wheel, the hairspring breathing and the balance bridge sparkling.

Despite the technical complexity and the use of a three-dimensional dial structure, Greubel Forsey has meticulously produced moderately resistant watches with high wear resistance. The gem-set version is slightly larger, but it should not overwhelm most wrists. My preferred model is an 18-carat white gold gem-set version set with beautiful, invisible baguette diamonds.

The movement incorporates many watchmaking technologies and is the core of Greubel Forsey Balancier Contemporain. Its composition is the result of long-term consideration. No matter where the eyes stay, they will be perfect. For example, the noble manual retouching seen on Greubel Forsey watches takes about four months to complete. Indeed, if you look closely, you will find that some examples of “manual finishing” cannot be achieved by the “mechanical finishing” method.

In the end, Greubel Forsey Balancier Contemporain’s brilliance cannot be overstated. So far, this is my favorite Greubel Forsey. Nevertheless, with creativity and innovative spirit at the core of its culture, I hope there will be more Greubel Forsey watch luxury in the future, which will increase my heart rate and attract my soul.

A week on the wrist Greubel Forsey GMT

GMT is one of the most complicated watches manufactured by luxury Greubel Forsey, which is impressive in technology and aesthetics. But what does it feel like to actually wear one?

Before Grand Sonnerie came out, one of the most complex watches owned by Greubel Forsey was GMT (Greenwich Mean Time), which is an ingenious name, in sharp contrast with the size of the watch itself, the overall visual impact and complexity . There are very few opportunities to actually see Greubel Forsey watches made of metal, although for many years I have been lucky enough to see more than I deserve. In 2006, one year after the launch of the double tourbillon at 30°, I sat next to Stephen Forsey at a dinner in New York and discussed the overall situation of the tourbillon. The theoretical background and technical aspects of the tourbillon are Forsey. And his partner Robert Greubel brought inspiration.

It was a very memorable night because I gained a better understanding of the overall pros and cons of the tourbillon and it was compelling. Almost late, we are talking about how to take a fraction of a second of better performance from increasingly complex mechanisms to meet the challenge. I asked Stephen Forsey if he thought the game was really worth it. He smiled and said, “Well, the gains are always greater than the lost gains.”

For Grobel Fossi, this is usually a motto because his entire work may be seen as a response to the notion of “good enough” performance or surface treatment. The designs produced by Greubel Forsey may cause polarization, but in general, regardless of whether they ultimately suit your taste, they will eventually make people less interested in it than each watch successfully achieved to the extent expected.

Greubel Forsey GMT luxury is one of Greubel Forsey’s most complicated watches (the only two are Quantième Perpétuelà quétion and the new Grande Sonnerie). Although its name is concise, it actually underestimates the actual complexity of the watch to some extent. Visually, this is the best-selling product, just like most Greubel Forsey watches. At the front, you have a tourbillon tilted 24 seconds, tilted 25°. The hours and minutes are displayed in the larger subdial, and the second time zone is displayed on the left. The largest pyrotechnics come from a titanium globe, which rotates once every 24 hours and looks toward the earth from above the North Pole. The earth shows about 3/4 of the surface of the earth, with the pivot at the south pole. The white background side of the 24-hour ring shows the part of the earth under sunlight,

When you turn the watch over, the watch is automatically sold technically (at least in terms of its name). There is a complete world time disk of 24 cities on the back, which rotates once a day like the earth and displays the correct time in 24 different time zones. Observe that the city in the time zone of daylight saving time/daylight saving time is displayed in white, and you can read the correct local time in the year of the year when you know that daylight saving time is in effect by reading the internal time instead of daylight saving time. Outer layer, 24 hours tracking. The back of the watch also shows the position of the sun relative to the earth; the sun is represented by stylized engravings on wheels fixed below the earth.

Setting up GMT is a fairly simple process. First, pull out the crown (only one set position). Next, set the city disk to the most recent correct time in your city (or you can set any given city to the most recent correct time in its time zone). You don’t need to consider DST. The crown can be rotated in either direction. Next, remove the crown and press and hold the GMT button. This engages the hour and minute hands with the crown and disengages it from the globe and city dial. Then, you place the pointer in the last hour of your local time. Finally, release the GMT button and set the hands to the correct local hours and minutes. This has also promoted the development of earth and city disks.

The GMT pointer can be set in 1-hour increments with the button. After setting the watch replicas, the hour hand, minute hand, GMT hand, globe and city dial will be synchronized. When changing the time zone, you can use the GMT pointer as a local time indicator by adjusting it to local time as needed. This will take care of all time zones that are one hour away from Greenwich Mean Time. However, there is an advanced user option. If you remember, the Greenwich Mean Time button will separate the crown from the Greenwich Mean Time indication, you only need to set the hour and minute hands. If you hold down the fader and reset the hour and minute hands to the local time in the new time zone, you can use the GMT indicator as the local time indicator, and you can also set the local time to any offset from GMT. Demand-includes part-time shifts. This will be my choice d choice; reading the local time on a larger display is more natural, and the globe can let you know the time around the world no matter when and where.

Now, it’s one thing to understand this kind of thing and technically understand the watch, and it’s another thing to wear it, and as far as all technologies are concerned, I don’t think this is ultimately a major technical expertise. Greubel Forsey’s watches have never been so. They usually extend an experimental perfectionism to almost every aspect of watchmaking. You can almost think of it as the absurd child of clock research: if you simply push all aspects of traditional clocks-not only to complete, but also to pursue better timekeeping functions by using traditional methods to improve isochronity, it will happen what? In my opinion, the aesthetics of Greubel Forsey watches are always accidentally discovered. Although there are many deliberate aesthetics in essence, they are so obsessed with all aspects of the watch. Compared to traditional aesthetics, they have become less and less – one is weird, but for me it is charming, boring serious attitude and completely whimsical madness.

The interesting thing about wearing GMT is that before you wear GMT, you think it’s like winning a movie star date of $20 million per movie, or getting a Ferrari F12 key on the weekend – living in a population that has not been able to live so far This is really shocking. But that is not the case. You look down at your wrist, yes, you will indeed see a very expensive and usually unattainable watch, you will also see other things.

The diameter of the earth is 12,742 kilometers. If you turn your watch to see the time, you are watching from a titanium ball about 10 times the diameter. This means that you are seeing the Earth from above the North Pole, just as you can see from a distance of about 153,000 kilometers, a little avoiding the middle of the moon. At this distance, the earth is close enough to pull your heartstring (after all, it is home), and far enough to look abstract. This combination is outrageous, and combined with the tourbillon, hour and minute hands, your wrist can experience a completely different spatial experience in one place, as well as three distinct time scales.

I wore Greubel Forsey GMT during the Basel Watch Fair. As you might expect, it attracted people’s attention at a watch fair. But what I gained from my experience was not a feeling of luck, but a philosophical tranquility. I feel that when I look at time, I don’t see much time, but rather a broader and more balanced view of how we view it.

They say the travel range has expanded, and although there are many more affordable multi-time zone replica watches for sale for you to choose from, few people take you out like Greubel Forsey GMT. Everything must work together to truly sit down and sing, but the level of attention to technical detail in GMT contradicts (or may be necessary?) the reason it also makes it a launchpad for fantasy and philosophical reflection.

Greubel Forsey Double Tourbillon 30 ° Technique Ceramic

Greubel Forsey Double Tourbillon 30 red gold Silver Replica Watch

In search of extremely high precision, Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey began to create a work in 1999 that reinterpreted the tourbillon and improved the timing function. The double tourbillon 30 ° is Grauber Fossi’s first basic invention and was exhibited at the Basel fake watches for sale Fair in 2004. This proves the success of the independent studio. Seven years later, the double tourbillon 30 ° technology won first place in Concours. International Times. Throughout the competition, the timer scored a record 915 points (out of 1,000 points), with an average timing speed of 0.3 to 0.8 seconds per day.

Now, Greubel Forsey has launched the blue ceramic double tourbillon 30 ° technology, which is an extremely accurate, delicate and strong timepiece.

Unparalleled precision timepiece center
The 30 ° double tourbillon contributes to its extraordinary accuracy. Inside the cage that rotates for four minutes, a smaller cage equipped with a balance wheel and spring assembly is tilted at an angle of 30 ° relative to the first cage, and completes the rotation within 60 seconds. Combining the 30 ° inclination with the different speeds of the two tourbillons can average out the position errors due to gravity in all conventional watch positions (especially stable positions), thereby improving timing performance.

In the Double Tourbillon 30 ° double tourbillon technology, four coaxial barrels are connected to a spherical power reserve differential, which provides a 120-hour chronograph power reserve.

Ceramic case: robustness and luminosity
This is the first time Greubel Forsey copy has demonstrated the movement inside a ceramic case. The manufacture of this case requires extremely high precision. The material is compacted by pressing and then shaped before firing. During the heat treatment, the material shrinks it by about 25%. Once the element is sintered at a very high temperature, the ceramic will solidify, making the watch case very hard and therefore more difficult to use. The material becomes very resistant to scratches and corrosion, which means that surface treatment requires excellent expertise. From polishing to linear or circular satin polishing, the surface treatment can perfect the outline of the timepiece, perfected with the true Greubel Forsey spirit. The dark blue ceramic brings a subtle flash to the Double Tourbillon 30 ° technology, while its physical properties make it extremely resistant.

Technical specifications:
The bottom cover of the blue ceramic case, the bezel and the strap are made of a piece of ceramic, which is polished and straight-lined and finished by hand. Three-dimensional variable geometry lugs. The size is 48.4mm x 17.7mm. It has a double-layer sapphire crystal, waterproof to 30 meters.

Greubel Forsey Tourbillon 24 Seconds Edition Historique watch review

Copy Greubel Forsey Tourbillon 24 Secondes Incline watch Tourbillon 24 Secondes Contemporain Titan RG Online

The long and meaningful history of fine watches replica has been intertwined with technological advancements. With the mutual influence of technology and the art of watchmaking, there are few outstanding watchmakers who can make a permanent mark on the high-quality watches of the 21st century. One of them is the famous watchmaker duo and the brand Maison Greubel Forsey, recently recognized by the Advanced Watchmaking Foundation (FHH) in recognition of their exquisite watchmaking craftsmanship and unique technologies and designs brought into the watchmaking industry. One of these designs is the tourbillon 24-second Historique watch.

Like all Greubel Forsey replica watches, the Tourbillon 24 Secondes Edition Historique tourbillon watch will bring you unparalleled performance. The dial of the watch is scaled down and divided in the middle, including the sapphire display, which shows the tilted tourbillon (angle: 25 °) that should be an artwork. This part adds asymmetric charm to the work. Even if an asymmetric case is made, the brand can demonstrate its exquisite skills.

Having such a unique thing is already a huge advantage for audiophiles, but knowing that there are only 22 tourbillon 24-second versions of Historique in the world is quite another matter (limited edition: 11 red gold and 11 platinum watches) . Of course, its quality is impeccable, the perfectly polished bezel, the delicate French text and every detail of the watch are obvious.

No one can question the quality of the complex surface treatment of the brand, but some people think that Greubel Forsey does not perform well in this particular shopping fake watch. The design of the watch can still feel the iconic mark of the brand, but if it is too picky, compared with other timepieces of the brand, the tourbillon 24-second version of Historique does not add much new creativity.

Technical index
Case: 44 x 15.78 mm, rose gold or platinum; transparent back
Movement: Manually wound tourbillon 24-second version of Historique movement with 24-second tourbillon, tilted at 25 degrees
Functions: hours, minutes, seconds; power reserve indicator
Number of jewels: 36 (dome gemstones in a gold frame)
Number of parts: (Sports) 302 parts; (Tourbillon cage) 88 parts

Is Greubel Forsey worth the price?

Copy Greubel Forsey Signature 1 Limited Edition Steel Blue For USA & Red Gold 2017 NEW watch Online

Now, I am sitting in the office with Greubel Forsey GMT replica on my wrist. This is probably the only censored watch I really worried about. You can guess why – something is worth more than 500,000.

The thing is … is it worth it?

This is a big problem. As a watch writer (and luxury lifestyle writer), I have to make more points than I can say. The question is why I want to answer clearly and concisely, there is no clear answer at all. Instead, I asked another question.

What is value?

Now we are talking. For watches, value is a very vague question. After all, from a practical point of view, mechanical watches are objectively useless until the huge EMP wave sweeps all electronic products around the world. It is much easier to have a better timekeeper. So what is their value?

Okay, so to speak. There are hundreds of machines that can assemble cheap watches. How many watchmakers are there? Ten percent? 1%? You can assume it is much lower. This only applies to basic, simple watches. The number of tourbillons, perpetual calendars, etc. has been reduced to a fraction.

It sounds pointless, but you can easily tell. Look at fashion; you can see at a glance the difference between the labor of a Bangladesh sweatshop and three generations of Italian craftsmen. The two clothes look very similar, but in fact they are not the same.

Copy Greubel Forsey Tourbillon 24 Secondes Incline watch Tourbillon 24 Secondes Contemporain Gold Online

The same is true of watches. Swatch, which I totally object to, cannot be expected to match the quality of Rolex, which cannot be expected to match the quality of Greubel Forsey. But you will notice that I did not mention any value.

That’s because I want to assume that they are two very independent things. One is subjective and the other is objective. Now, bear with me here. When the cost of the product matches the selling price of the product, the value comes. It is worth mentioning whether there is a reason to buy.

Take my Greubel Forsey as an example. I don’t want to imagine what such a markup is. It will be very high-after all, this is the fake watch industry-when we talk about a high percentage of high numbers, this is a huge sum of money. It is worth mentioning a different story.

The truth is, I have never worn clothes like this, and I have worn many watches for a short time on earth. Hush. I am still young. Superb craftsmanship, unparalleled watch technology, if I come here again to introduce the most advanced products, Stephen Forsey will set off a climax from Switzerland.

I will never pay more than 500k for a watch, this is simply because I cannot and happily accept that I will never be able to do it. This does not mean that the watch is not worth it. Not only do you pay for raw materials or time spent in manufacturing; you need to pay for something that only Greubel Forsey can do.

They are the most extreme examples, but it will add drop by drop. The members of the watchmaker ’s club are on the same boat. Many potential collectors may look at them and then think: “When I get such a thing at the same price, I will not pay”, and to some extent, they may be right. Objectively speaking, the value of Omega may be better than some unknown independent entities. But is it worth it? No.

As I have already said, if it is worth buying, then owning a unique timepiece, a carefully crafted, exquisitely designed and strangely heterogeneous watch will be worth having for all Haimas in the world. This is why most watch experts say investment is a fool game. This is why there are top watchmakers in control of wealth, and why prices are not all because you think you are getting a deal. fanreviewwatch.com

The secret of the quadruple tourbillon

Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey partnered to form Greubel Forsey to make some of the world’s most accurate timepieces.

In 2011, they won an international timing competition awarded by the Le Locle Watch Museum for using multiple tourbillons and tilt balances.

The latest timepiece is the “Quadruple Tourbillon Secret” of 2012, which uses two dual tourbillons for a total of four heavy tourbillons. These tourbillons create four spinning cages that distribute torque to the other two wheels spinning at different speeds.

The transparent back cover on the watch allows the owner to see the watch’s movements, which are interconnected and combined by a spherical differential.
