Greubel Forsey GMT Watch - Delight for Frequent Travelers

Nov 04, 2011
The house of Greubel Forsey is happy to unveil its new GMT watch with a second time-zone as its prime focus.

Always pursuing its quest for perfection, the brand’s craftsmen have created an 18k white gold three-dimensional dial. Its special attention-getter is a rotating terrestrial globe, placed at 8 o’clock. Encircled by a 24-hour scale, it is secured to just one end of its rotational axis - the South Pole. Such a construction allows the user to fully enjoy its mesmerizing surface, created on the durable and at the same time light titanium sphere.

The new Greubel Forsey watch also features an upper counter with hour and minute indications. In charge of seconds is a counter at 2 o’clock. The power reserve indicator is placed at 3 o’clock. Another hallmark feature of the display is a tourbillon 24 secondes device, presented at 5 o’clock. Completing the features on the face of the model is a 12-hour GMT display at 10 o’clock.

The range of practical functions is continued on the case-back. It reveals a worldtime disc, which boasts three circular scales. Here belong the inner 24-hour ring, indicating summer time; the scale, marked with the names of 24 cities, and the outer chapter ring with local time indication.

The new Greubel Forsey GMT watch is available in an 18k white gold case. It measures 43.5mm in diameter and is 16.14mm thick. The case is assembled with sapphire crystals, covering the top, bottom and lateral parts of the case. The model provides 30-meter water-resistance.

Hidden inside the case is a 36.4mm movement. It comprises 436 individual parts - 87 of them are used for the tourbillon cage. The caliber incorporates plates and bridges, which are hand-finished, frosted, spotted, bevelled, straight-grained, matt lapped and flat black polished. Set with 50 jewels, the movement beats to the rhythm of 21,600 vibrations per hour and offers a 72-hour power reserve.

The new Greubel Forsey watch is coupled with a hand-sewn black alligator leather strap. It joins to a folding clasp in white gold.
