The Tourbillon 24 Secondes Contemporain is characterised by its round case and an emphasis on the technical aspects of the movement, particularly the Tourbillon. With the Tourbillon 24 Secondes Contemporain, Greubel Forsey has once again challenged the limits of horological architecture in three-dimensions.
The aim from the very start of its development was to offer a three dimensional view within a circular backdrop highlighting the beauty of Greubel Forsey’s Tourbillon 24 Secondes mechanism.
Greubel Forsey was guided in its architectural and technological creativity by a desire to achieve aesthetic balance in every dimension. The distinctive 12 o’clock index in relief is an example of the innovative spatial management of the components within this architectural study.
A transparent synthetic sapphire Tourbillon bridge gives a captivating and hypnotic impression of the regulator floating in mid-air and underlines one of the highly creative challenges which are to be found throughout the timepiece.
And what makes it individual to every eye yet brings it a perfect harmony is the marriage of simplicity and complexity.
The Tourbillon 24 Secondes uses a fast rotation speed and inclined angle to solve the problem of critical positions of the oscillator in relation to gravity. The 25˚ angle and the rapid rotation of the tourbillon cage significantly improve the chronometric performance of a system containing only one tourbillon, especially in stable positions. Consequently, we had to develop an inclined gearing profile and an ultra-light tourbillon cage to resolve the considerable mechanical constraints imposed by this system.
