When Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey unveiled their groundbreaking Double Tourbillon 30° at Baselworld in 2004, they catapulted themselves into the pantheon of modern horological masters. Fast forward to the present, and their relentless pursuit of innovation continues with the Greubel Forsey – Tourbillon Cardan, the brand’s 8th Fundamental Invention.

The Tourbillon Cardan is a tour de force of precision engineering and design. This timepiece features a swiveling tourbillon suspended by two arched cardan rings, a concept originally developed for pocket watches. These rings keep the tourbillon horizontally oriented, with oscillations ranging from +30° to -30°, combined with the fixed 30° incline of the tourbillon.

This ingenious setup enhances angular velocity and chronometric performance, making it the fastest tourbillon ever produced by Greubel Forsey, with a rapid 16-second revolution.

The watch’s dial showcases the swiveling tourbillon in the lower left-hand portion, while the standard timekeeping functions grace the upper right-hand side. Together, they form the graceful figure-eight shape, a subtle homage to the brand’s 8th Fundamental Invention.

Crafted with precision and innovation in mind, the Greubel Forsey Tourbillon Cardan resides in a 45.5mm titanium case, standing at 18.15mm in height, capped with a domed sapphire crystal. The vegan leather strap, complemented by a titanium folding clasp, adds to the watch’s overall sophistication.

For those who appreciate true horological artistry, the Tourbillon Cardan is available today at a price of $532,000, with just 11 pieces produced annually for the next five years. Greubel Forsey once again reaffirms its status as a pioneering force in the world of luxury timepieces.
