Art Piece 2 - Edition 2

Greubel Forsey 2017

Men's

Art Piece 2 - Edition 2 square

 

 

The Art Piece series by Greubel Forsey is a reflection

on scientific research and its applications in haute horlogerie, and the desire

to take watchmaking into new aesthetic territory. This is the first Art Piece

that has no optical system, hence without any micro-sculpture or

nano-engraving. The focus shifts to the 30° double tourbillon which takes up a

dial seemingly devoid of any timekeeping function. The power reserve takes

precedence over all other indications so as to change our relationship to time,

encouraging us to contemplate not the current time but time remaining. And when

time becomes an immediate concern, suffice to press the pusher in the case side

to open an aperture at 6 o'clock where hours and minutes can be read on discs.
