Greubel Forsey Tourbillon 24 Secondes Edition Historique Watch Hands-On
Greubel Forsey is one of the most famous figures in the field of fine watches. The brand is known for its asymmetrical case, tourbillon and the most advanced surface treatment. In 2007, Greubel Forsey launched the first Tourbillon 24Secondes Asymétrique watch, known for its asymmetrical case and tilting tourbillon, which revolutionized every 24 seconds. Now, after 10 years and about 180 pieces, Greubel Forsey is bringing the curtain to the Tourbillon 24SecondesAsymétrique. But not without the final cheers. Therefore, in commemoration of one of the brand’s most popular and iconic models, they announced the Greubel Forsey Tourbillon 24 Secondes Edition Historique at the 2017 Shanghai International Fashion Show.
Interestingly, Tourbillon 24 Secondes Edition Historique is the second edition of Historique which is the brand’s history. The first was in 2010, when Greubel Forsey decided to end the Double Tourbillon 30° Contemporaine collection. In the true version of Historique fashion, the Tourbillon 24 Secondes Edition Historique has a unique feature that does not appear on other Tourbillon 24 Secondes watches.wholesale Richard Mille RM 027 replica Watches
First, the Tourbillon 24 Secondes Edition Historique will be limited to 11 pieces, each in 5N red gold and platinum. The case is 44 mm wide and asymmetrical, with a slight extension at 8 o’clock to accommodate the rather large tilting tourbillon. The bezel is quite thick and the mirror is polished, making the dial look smaller than it actually is. The sides of the case are made of straight grain, and all surface treatments are done by hand. From a clear and visible point of view, there is a lot of text on one side of the dial that explains Grübel Forsey’s philosophy. The text itself is very small and looks like decoration from a distance, but it is certainly readable at close range. This is really an objective design preference issue, but I can’t imagine that this article won’t bother some people.
Although the watch has been meticulously finished throughout the process, it is easy to recognize that the design has been “called” a little bit. This means that it is very typical Greubel Forsey, although it does not provide any ideas or new things, but this is disappointing. This is not to say that I don’t have the design aspect to enjoy and appreciate here. For example, one clever thing about the case is that the asymmetrical portion has a sapphire display window on the side of the case, providing the wearer with a side perspective view of the tilted tourbillon. In addition, there are red gold or platinum dials on both sides of the case, engraved with hand-made text, claiming the brand’s watchmaking philosophy. Obviously, this may be a split design choice. The rather large crown also has a Greubel Forsey engraved raised logo, which is mediocre and usually does not appear in the best list of design choices for brands I like.HUBLOT BIG BANG FERRARI BEVERLY HILLS BOUTIQUE replica watches
As you would expect from Grebeul Forsey, the dial is pleasing (although this is a bit unremarkable given our expectations for GF). The dial has a lot of depth and detail and is made of a piece of pure gold. From a distance, the red gold model looks as if half of its dial is silver and the other half is black. The dial is indeed silver, but the black half is actually a dial with a sapphire disc, expressing the philosophy of the brand. On the platinum model, the silver half of the dial is anthracite.
At 2 o’clock, there is a power reserve indicator, presented as a simple pointer with a rotating disc underneath. Between 5 o’clock and 6 o’clock, there is also an auxiliary second indicator, which is also depicted in the form of a pointer and a rotating disc below. This way of displaying the power reserve and running seconds is a new and unique feature of the Tourbillon 24 Secondes Edition Historique.swiss Rebellion replica Watches
Other noteworthy details on the dial are the hands and the hour markers, all made of pure gold and with an interesting black treatment that complements the silver hour ring and dial for improved legibility. On the platinum model, the sturdy gold hand and hour markers are mirror polished, in sharp contrast to the anthracite dial.
Of course, at 8 o’clock you will see the highlight of this tilted tourbillon. The tourbillon tilts at a 25° angle and rotates every 24 seconds. The entire tourbillon assembly consists of 88 parts and the cage is made of titanium. Titanium is used because it is very light (0.39 grams), so it requires less torque and lower spin energy consumption.
The fast-rotating tourbillon is also very exciting. The entire assembly is beautifully decorated with prominent bevels and different finishes. For example, the tourbillon bridge is made of steel and polished. Underneath the tourbillon is a black PVD coated titanium alloy platform with a polished background.luxury replica watches for sale
Turn the watch to see the back of a large sapphire display case, showing all the movements in glory. Finishing is a feature of Greubel Forsey, and even though most of the sport is hidden under large bridges, there are still many places to watch and appreciate. For example, these bridges have a unique matte surface and a very distinct polished bevel. The jewels are slightly dome-shaped and are housed in a golden hut with polished countersunk holes. There are many places to appreciate about sports.
All in all, the Tourbillon 24 Secondes Edition Historique is the right farewell for Greubel Forsey’s signature 24SecondesAsymétrique collection. It has a unique design element and is beautifully crafted with the advanced decorative effects that Greubel Forsey expects. I especially like the sapphire piece on the dial, engraved with the engraving of the brand philosophy. I think this is a very clever touch.Greubel Forsey Double Balancier replica Watches
