Greubel Forsey puts the world on your wrist

Literally

Back in 2017, I went to Monaco for Top Marques Watches, a spin-off one-day event inspired by the Top Marques, which is technically a car show, and the first watch that caught my eye during the show was a spectacular piece with a miniature globe incorporated into the dial and technically part of the movement. What - I asked - the heck is that? *That* turned out to a Greubel Forsey GMT Quadruple Tourbillon.

This is Greubel Forsey's latest addition to the GMT collection, and it comes in with a straightforward name ('Sport'), titanium construction and, for the first time, an integrated metal bracelet or an integrated rubber strap.

Limited to 33 pieces only, each piece features a hand-finished - and hand-polished - bezel which, just like the movement and the dial and the case, is slightly curved to follow the shape of the wrist. The 42mm case and the bracelet are made from Grade 5 titanium and looking at the dial, you can easily the spot the second time zone at the 10 o'clock, the power reserve sub-dial at the 3 and a rotating terrestrial globe at 8 o’clock.

I think this looks even better than the GMT piece I got the chance to see at Top Marques because it looks more modern, more technical, more in tune with the times. Pricing? In excess of CHF500,000.

    • I love it, and I love curved watches. I've been considering a Bulova Curv for some time

    • Agreed the curve adds a certain appeal for sure... no new watches for me for a bit... need to focus on some car projects first lol although after reading your piece on the new Raketa I looked into them and ended up ordering a vintage Big Zero....

  • That's pretty cool actually, even though it's way too busy for my taste. I would call for a leather strap in navy blue, because it's both stylish and comfy 😎
