When I expanded my field of expertise from jewellery to fine watchmaking in the mid-1990s, a new world unfold-ed before me. I went from looking for the perfect stone to looking for the most accurate mechanism.I travelled around Switzerland visiting the most tradition-al and, at the same time, most advanced workshops. But I was most taken aback by the truly perfect timepieces produced by Greubel Forsey, with their blend of aesthetic beauty and outstanding mechanisms. Although I was vis-iting small-scale workshops, Greubel Forsey surpassed everything else: 100 timepieces a year for sale world-wide, and each and every one of them perfect.Their timepieces defy logic yet confirm the unlimited possibilities of micro-mechanics coupled with extreme scientific rigour. They pave the way for a completely new understanding of the technique behind fine watchmaking.In their constant quest for precision and innovation, the pair explore diverse ways of measuring time with a sin-gular sense of creativity. It is an honour for our company to represent this brand which is capable of going beyond anything we’ve seen so far and breaking all boundaries.
