Greubel Forsey

The Beginning of the Double Tourbillon

Before the creation of Greubel Forsey in 2004, we were already developing the concepts that eventually gave birth to our timepieces. 

In 2002, with quite limited technical and financial resources compared to today, we created a proof-of-concept model for our first invention, the Double Tourbillon 30°, using pieces of Meccano. In retrospect, this first “prototype”, resembling a colourful toy, is emblematic of Greubel Forsey’s “early childhood”. 

Greubel Forsey celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2014, and we are very pleased to offer to our valued collectors and partners this precious memento of our early DNA, the first chapter in a story that is still being written.
