Tourbillon 24 Seconds

Platinum
Blue dial

Greubel  Forsey  recently  extended  the  Tourbillon  24  Secondes  Vision  range  with  a  “Salmon”  dial.  It  is  now  available in three new versions: “Chocolate”, “Blue” and “Anthracite Black”. One timepiece with four different faces:  it  is  a  unique  situation  as,  usually,  Greubel  Forsey  only  creates  one  edition  of  each  of  its  platinum timepieces. These versions follow the success of the Tourbillon 24 Secondes Vision, which was awarded the Aiguille d’Or 2015 by the jury of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.

Among this timepiece's most noteworthy feauture are its two curved tourbillon bridges, with their delicately hand-polished surfaces. To attain such symmetrical perfection in the finishes of the three-dimensional tourbillon bridges is no mean achievement, and indeed each bridge is discreetly signed by the artisan decorator who has executed it – a good way to cel cbrate the excellence of such watchmaking crafts manship. Furthermore, in keeping with the highest standards, the movement’s 29 parts, whether visible or not, feature the very best hand finishing that can be found today.

 

The multi-level gold dial of this timepiece, in Salmon, Chocolate, Blue or Anthracite Black, features engraved indexes (or gold appliqués depending on the version) filled with grand feu (champlevé) enamel. The hour, minute and small seconds hands are made of polished steel, which is blued in some of the versions. The countersinks are polished by hand.

 

The Tourbillon 24 Secondes Vision in platinum will be realised in small editions of a few pieces each year.
