GREUBEL FORSEY – Signature 1
The tourbillon is the watch muse for Greubel Forsey. Every single one of the timepieces made by the brand has had one, two or even four of this high precision mechanism. This year though, the duo are mixing things up. The Signature collection is taking the brand up a notch. The idea is that a guest watchmaker designs a timepiece. They may have free reign in their technical decisions but the piece must adhere to precise specifications regarding the quality of the technique and design that Greubel Forsey is known for. Didier Cretin, behind the Double Tourbillon Technique in 2009, is the first watchmaker to set out on the adventure. The long-term collaborator brings us the Signature 1 with a manual wind movement inside the smallest case to be made by the brand at 41.4mm. There’s no complication, just an off-centre hour and minute display, subtle small seconds and balance wheel. Less is more. Price on request (33 gold and platinum models, 33 steel models). Dan Diaconu
