  • Catalogue Essay

    Greubel Forsey’s Double Tourbillon Asymétrique exemplifies many of the watchmaker’s finest qualities. The present watch features two tourbillon mechanisms, with one above 7 o'clock and one at 2 o'clock. The double tourbillon mechanism was Greubel Forsey’s first invention, which not only allows for better timekeeping but also makes an aesthetically beautiful watch. The tourbillon at 6 o'clock is further enhanced by the watch’s asymmetric case, allowing the mechanism, which is 30 degrees in relation to the outer cage, to seem as if it is floating in space.

    Apart from the double tourbillon, chronometer and power reserve indicator, the watch dial is also beautifully presented. The dial comes in varying degrees of texture, from a grainy surface to a smooth finish. Indeed, the dial's finish is a hallmark of Gerubel Forsey's.

    Produced in a limited edition series of 11 pieces in 2014, the present watch in pink gold is truly an important superlative watch in mint condition.

  • Artist Biography

    Greubel Forsey

    Swiss • 2004

    With the introduction of the Double Tourbillon 30 at Basel World in 2004, Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey became major players in the world of haute horology and independent watchmaking. Their firm concentrates on high-end complicated movements with precision timekeeping and the highest quality hand finishing. They achieve this with movements featuring multiple tourbillons and inclined balance wheels — tourbillons designed for wristwatches. Forsey joined Greubel's team at Renaud & Papi SA, a high-complication specialist now part of Audemars Piguet. The team participated with Harry Winston and their Opus 6 project. In the span of 12 years, the firm has become highly sought-after by collectors for their innovative timekeeping and industrial design.
