In the spirit of independence and exclusivity, Greubel Forsey decided in 2010 to end the Double Tourbillon 30° Contemporain by creating the “Edition Historique”. The closure of the Double Tourbillon 30° Contemporain is a strong symbol for the brand: This line is heavily steeped in history as it is the timepiece which launched the Greubel Forsey adventure and forms the foundation of legitimacy for the inventions that followed. The decision to cease the Double Tourbillon 30° Contemporain after six successful years will also see Greubel Forsey channeling new energy in creating systems, inventions and to explore new avenues
The complexity of this timepiece is not only limited to the Tourbillon system, but is visible in other aspects including a new kind of dial. These complex insertions are engraved and enhanced by a 3D structured text. The bezel with beveled relief gives an original look to this final edition, a new interpretation of the style of the earlier models while retaining the intrinsic design features of a Greubel Forsey timepiece.
Like the other Greubel Forsey timepieces, the Double Tourbillon 30° expresses the thinking of its creators. Visually, you will also discover the 3D structured text on the dial and engraved hand-decorated curved plates affixed to the sides of the case extolling the philosophy and skill of the inventor watchmakers.
