The Greubel Forsey team is proud to announce that the Tourbillon 24 Seconds Vision in
white gold was awarded the Top Prize at Grand Prix de la Haute Horlogerie de Genève.
Tourbillon 24 Secondes Vision
With this creation, Greubel Forsey houses its Tourbillon 24 Secondes in a particularly
sophisticated case that exemplifies classic elegance. Its lines have been redefined to
reduce its height. The tourbillon appears on the back of the timepiece taking its place
under the sapphire crystal dome: a first for Greubel Forsey.
Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey’s primary intention is to present their third invention (the Tourbillon 24
Secondes) in a case that is as slender as possible and yet able to accommodate the unique inclined tourbillon
It was the lateral projections of Greubel Forsey’s asymmetric models that inspired this original solution. By incorporating a dome into the sapphire crystal on the back of the timepiece, they have created enough extra volume to allow the tourbillon cage to overlap the reference surface of the movement bridges.
The dome is a new and intriguing element that draws attention to the lower tourbillon bridge. This bridge is more than just a simple support; it is a triumph of technology and craftsmanship. Its geometry is like a Romanesque vault and its arched and barrelled surface is delicately polished by hand. Obtaining a perfectly regular reflection over the whole piece requires such expertise and experience that each bridge finished in this way is discretely signed by the craftsman-decorator who executed it.
Completing the exceptional standard of decoration that naturally applies to all 288 parts in the movement, the unique composition of colours and finishes creates a spectacular visual dynamic, with pride of place given to the sectorial 72-hour chronometric power-reserve indicator.
