Greubel Forsey continues their tradition of innovation with timepieces that are groundbreaking in both mechanics and design. Discover their "city on the wrist": the 24-second tourbillon architecture. A movement like no other, suspended in an unexpected three-dimensional plane, with 354 parts arranged in a unique fusion of technology and aesthetics.
Combined with a fast rotational speed and a 25-degree inclined escapement, it defies gravity in form while compensating in function. Three barrels connected coaxially in series - their lids are engraved, painted and circular grained - provide a power reserve of 90 hours at 3 o'clock. Polished titanium bridges the movement to hold everything in place with strength and beauty.
The new 24-second tourbillon architecture suspends its components within the case, revealing a harmonious combination of surfaces, shapes and movements. The case first showcases the spectacle through a large opening on the side of the dial, which contains the embossed Greubel Forsey values that inspired this creation: Architecture, Harmony, Innovation, Technology, Duplex, Passion, Science, Exclusivity, Creativity.wholesale replica watches
While the case appears round from one side of the dial, from other angles its convex shape is revealed, along with a large synthetic sapphire crystal ring that surrounds the entire perimeter of the case. Greubel Forsey has been integrating transverse sapphire crystal windows since 2007, but never before has a movement visible from all angles above, below and around the strap.
This new case construction allows unobstructed views of even the smallest details of the movement, while allowing light to penetrate almost unhindered. Light works through shadows and reflections, shaping matter and revealing the intimacy of the building. It immerses the movement in water to fully reveal its complexity, so it is itself an important contribution to the aesthetics of this unique timepiece.mens replica watch
The new case structure is not only convex, but also resembles a truncated cone, designed to showcase the movement and ensure optimum ergonomics and wrist comfort. For the first time, Greubel Forsey provides visibility of the movement from above, below and around the case via a synthetic sapphire crystal ring surrounding the convex case. The 50-meter water-resistant titanium case flows into a rubber strap with a titanium folding clasp. The caseback, measuring 47.05mm in diameter, is wider than the 45.5mm bezel, giving the impression that the watch is smaller than it actually is, without compromising the movement display. Then hand-engraved steel hands indicate the hours and minutes, with a small seconds at 8 o'clock. Although the case itself was a major technical feat, the Greubel Forsey movement was still the star of the show. The polished titanium bridges immediately stand out from the matte finish of the main plate, appearing spectacularly out of nowhere, winding through the movement and eventually flush with the sapphire crystal.
At 6 o'clock, the 24-second tourbillon rests on a large spherical skeleton bridge, the base of which is designed to remain hidden. The inclined escapement resists gravity in its form, and compensates for it in its function. To address the crucial position of the oscillator in relation to gravity, the Tourbillon 24 Stopwatch employs rapid rotation in addition to its 25-degree inclination. The combination of these two elements contributes to excellent timekeeping performance, especially in stable positions.Richard Mille RM UP-01 Ferrari
The barrel bridge at 10 o’clock is similarly engraved, with a polished spherical surface, as well as polished bevels and countersunk holes. The barrel cap is engraved, painted and round textured and contains three coaxial tandem quick-rotating barrels, one of which is equipped with a sliding spring to avoid excessive tension. The movement’s power source provides a 90-hour chronograph power reserve, indicated by a moving red triangle above the conical disc at 3 o’clock. It is also held by another large polished titanium bridge.
In the center we find two large curved skeletonized polished steel hands indicating the hours and minutes, mounted on the iconic Greubel Forsey tripod bridge. The time display at 8 o’clock is completed by a small seconds hand on a cylinder with polished sides – echoing all the other components nearby.
By combining art with technical inventions, Greubel Forsey pushes the boundaries of watchmaking with purposeful construction, dynamic interactions and imaginative design.Bovet Amadeo Fleurier Grand Complications
