Greubel Forsey, the well-known manufacturer specialized in very high-end complicated timepieces, presents another great achievement – the new GMT watch with a second time-zone as its main highlight.
One of the main attractions of the astonishing 18 K white gold three-dimensional dial is rotating terrestrial globe, located at 8 o`clock. Made of titanium and surrounded by a 24-hour scale, the globe is secured to only one end of its rotational axis, the South Pole, allowing the wearer to admire its fascinating surface.
The new GMT watch sports an upper counter with hour and minutes indications, a power reserve indicator at 3 o`clock, but also a seconds counter at 2 o`clock. The tourbillion 24 seconds device at 5 o`clock is another eye-catcher of the face of the watch, while the 12-hour GMT display at 10 o`clock wonderfully completes the dial.
The case-back of the new Greubel Forsey GMT watch also reveals some surprising features, as it continues the practical functions. It shows a world time disc with three circular scales: the 24-hour ring for summer time indication, the scale with the names of 24 cities, and the outer chapter ring for indicating local time.
Rendered in an 18 K white gold case, the new GMT watch is 30-meter water-resistant. The 43.5 mm case is assembled with sapphire crystals for top, bottom and lateral parts.
The functions of the new Greubel Forsey GMT watch are animated by a 36.4 mm caliber which incorporates 436 individual parts. For the tourbillion cage only, there were used 87 parts. The movement features hand-finished plates and bridges which are also frosted, beveled, spotted, straight-grained, flat back polished and matt lapped. Fixed with 50 jewels, the movement provides a 72-hour power reserve and beats with 21,600 vibrations per hour.
The new GMT watch by Greubel Forsey is matched with a hand-sewn black alligator leather strap secured with a white gold folding clasp.
