Swiss luxury watchmaker Greubel Forsey is kicking off 2021 by revisiting one of its most sophisticated complications, the GMT Quadruple Tourbillon, re-introducing the model in a fresh titanium case material. Greubel Forsey is recognized to be a master of the 3-D, multi-layered dial approach to watchmaking. The first version of this highly embellished GMT was introduced in 2013. In addition to providing a 24-hour universal time display, it included a 24-second tourbillon inclined at an angle, a Greubel Forsey signature. In 2019, the watchmaker released its next level GMT Quadruple Tourbillon in white gold with two double tourbillons instead of one. This latest version in titanium instead of white gold sports a new blue-dial colorway with finishes on the dial and movement that lend a very different look to the timepiece.
The 46.5-mm asymmetrical case of the GMT Quadruple Tourbillon sits high on the wrist at 17.45 mm thick. On its left partially open-worked side sits the exposed GMT globe, while on its right is a deeply grooved, signed crown and a GMT pusher to quickly shuffle through multiple time zones. The case’s thick, slightly tapered lugs connect to a rubber or hand-sewn alligator leather strap, itself secured to the wrist via a hand-polished titanium folding clasp engraved with the GF logo. The Greubel Forsey GMT Quadruple Tourbillon in titanium will be extremely limited, with only eleven pieces set for production at a jaw-dropping price of $835,000.
