The Double Tourbillon “Technique” watch from Greubel Forsey was bestowed with the “Best Complicated” prize in the course of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie, which took place in Geneve this Saturday, 14th November.
This prestigious honor was achieved by the brand shortly after its Quadruple Tourbillon watch had won a title of the “Best Complicated watch” at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie Asia 2009, which was held in Singapore last September.
The “Technique” is the model, developed, executed and assembled in the brand’s ateliers, located in La Chaux-de-Fonds. A true embodiment of the mystery and sophistication, it employs the Double Tourbillon 30°, which happens to be the first invention of Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey.
As Watches.InfoNIAC.com found out, this exceptional mechanism required years of painstaking research, which resulted in its matchless exactitude alongside with its bold design. The originality of this timepiece lies in its four co-axial barrels, which provide a 120-hour power reserve.
Created by the Inventors Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey, the watch design is modern, pure and noble. The timepiece owner is offered a perfect opportunity to admire all intricate workings of the movement. Similar to all other Greubel Forsey watches, the Double Tourbillon “Technique” watch affirms its unique character.
