  • Catalogue Essay

    ‘Bigger (and more complicated) is always better’ may very well be Greubel Forsey’s mantra, but the 24 Degrees Inclined Tourbillon is one of the watchmaker’s more subdued yet elegant creation. Greubel Forsey developed this exceptional model for three years, and the entire movement is created and assembled within the Atelier.

    The asymmetrical case allows for a large sized tourbillon, which is inclined at a 25 degree angle and appears to be separated from the gear train. The tourbillon mechanism completes a high speed rotation in 24 seconds, and the rotating cage weighs a feather light 0.39 grammes. The tourbillon mechanism is visible for both the wearer and viewer’s enjoyment.

    The present platinum example is no. 8 among the series, with the number engraved on a gold plate on the main bridge. The present watch is offered in excellent overall condition and is complete with all its original accessories.

  • 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.
