Greubel Forsey 2019

Men's

Greubel Forsey has accomplished the challenge of adapting its iconic large balance wheel to the architecture of a smaller case. And without any compromise on timekeeping performance. This regulating organ, distinguished by its 12.6mm diameter, takes up position within a more compact (39.6mm) white gold case that sits comfortably on any wrist. This is a first from the brand, which has succeeded in preserving the well-balanced forms and pleasing proportions of the original while ensuring perfect legibility. The gold display side has been reconfigured, though still with its hallmark asymmetrical arrangement. Playing on split levels, together with multiple materials and finishes, it shows hours and minutes on an offset dial, small seconds between 8 and 9 o'clock, and power reserve at 10 o'clock. On the back of this subtle composition, a 33-piece limited edition, Greubel Forsey reiterates its values, which are relief engraved on a white gold bridge then black polished.
