Greubel Forsey replica is a cult brand of followers, for those who pursue the highest level of watchmaking. When they debuted in 2005, they clearly expressed their mission. They launched a double tourbillon tilted at 30 degrees, followed by a near-decline four tourbillon. However, although their prices do not stop collectors, the design of their watches is always controversial. Greubel Forsey Tourbillon 24 Secondes Contemporain is very suitable for the bill. Although it is a more comprehensive expression of the company’s DNA, it will still attract some attention, especially the Diamond Set version.
The Greubel Forsey Tourbillon 24 Secondes Contemporain watch has been in various iterations for some time (here is the hands-on operation of the “Royal Blue” version), we will look at the latest white gold with titanium, 5N red gold and titanium (more About titanium parts here), white gold and blue titanium diamonds. Greubel Forsey also produced 5N rose gold models with silver dials, and produced 33 platinum and red gold blue dial versions, respectively. All Greubel Forsey Tourbillon 24 Seconds Contemporain watches have the same specifications: a completely round case without protrusions (the most unusual for the brand), 43.50mm in diameter, it can be very good due to the shape of the lugs On the wrist. On the other hand, the height is 15.20mm, which inevitably collides with the cuff of the men’s shirt. Again, most likely these are not the timepieces you always wanted to hide.
Like other Greubel Forsey watches, the case has long letters on each side, which unabashedly praises the creator and the watch itself. These two hand-made dials have a classic feel, reminiscent of Roman inscriptions, and hope to establish an intimate relationship between themselves and the replica men watch owner through them. This is a unique way of welcoming them into the secret realm of very high-quality watches (“Notre savoir-faire exclusif et bienfacture sereflètentdans lacomplexitéde cette realitationélaboréeàvotre intention”).
The back of the watch surprised me a little. We have become accustomed to the Baroque look, such as the Invention Case 3 (Invention Piece 3), which is the first appearance of the Greubel Forsey 24 Secondes tourbillon watch. Compared with this, this movement is very simple. It may be designed so clearly to match the relative tightness of the dial (according to the GF standard). Although I like the movement with a peaceful appearance (for example, check Panerai), it is not attractive to me. The frost and spots on the nickel-silver bridge are very beautiful, but the puzzle-like shape does not fit me. Is this a deal breaker? Probably because when you spend so much money on your watch, you want to be perfect everywhere – for me, just knowing that it will torture me endlessly.
Given that complexity is at the heart of the watch, considering Greubel Forsey’s obsession with tourbillons, Greubel Forsey Tourbillon 24 Secondes Contemporain watches do not have any conventional tourbillons. This gyro is much faster than many tourbillons on the market because it spins every 24 seconds instead of the usual 60 seconds. I must admit that I do not know why it is accurate to 24 seconds, although this may be for a reason. In any case, even if the tourbillon solves the problem that the watch could not solve at the beginning, it is admirably beautiful, and it is even more so when it runs so fast.
