SIHH 2016: new case metal for Greubel Forsey Tourbillon 24 Secondes Vision

by Peter Chong on January 23, 2016

On 29th October 2015, the Jury of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève awarded the Grand Prix of the “Aiguille d’Or” to the Vision of Greubel Forsey. This is the second time that this most prestigious prize has been awarded to Greubel Forsey creation. The first being the Double Tourbillon 30° Édition Historique in 2010.

 

Greubel Forsey Tourbillon 24 Secondes Vision now in Red Gold.

This year, the award winning Tourbillon 24 Secondes Vision is now presented in red gold instead of white gold. And the dial has adopted an anthracite hue – a striking contrast. The case keeps its slender proportions, while in order to house and display the Tourbillon 24 Secondes, a sapphire dome has been carved out on the timepiece’s display back, which forms a subtle vertical asymmetry.

 

Two sides of a masterpiece. One classical, and the other very technical.

The watch features enamelled indications on the solid gold dial, the hand-finished hands. The lower tourbillon bridge is an example of the haute horogerie virtuoso performance with  “barrelled and polished” surface, a finishing which requires extremely rare expertise. Each bridge is discreetly signed by the Movement Finisher who completed it.

 

A bulge allows for the inclined tourbillon space to turn and yet keep the case slim. Interestingly, when worn on the wrist, one does not feel the bump.

By simply turning the timepiece over, the extent of its subtle originality is revealed – it presents two distinct faces. On the front, the lines exude an almost neoclassical purity. Meanwhile the movement side plunges us into a world of extreme-precision mechanics.

 

Elegance. Classic. Not usually words to describe a Greubel Forsey watch, but is apt for the Tourbillon 24 Secondes Vision.
