Greubel Forsey GMT Quadruple Tourbillon Titanium Limited Edition

The Greubel Forsey GMT Quadruple Tourbillon is now available in titanium. Released in a limited edition of 11 pieces, this groundbreaking horological marvel incorporates new materials, new colors and new finishes.

The Quadruple Tourbillon is Greubel Forsey’s second fundamental invention, which averages out the positional errors caused by gravity in all situations, especially in stable watch positions. To achieve this, the original tourbillon has been elevated to its full potential: inclined 30°, doubled and then quadrupled.

As a result, two synchronized double tourbillon 30° mechanisms, in which the first cage is inclined 30° and rotates in one minute, nested in the second horizontal cage, completes a full rotation in four minutes. The spherical differential transmits the average timing rate of the four tourbillon cages, improving the overall timing performance of all regulating mechanisms. Discount watches

The 46.5mm case of the GMT Quadruple Tourbillon is made of titanium, which is stronger and lighter than steel, while also being extremely resistant to corrosion and magnetic fields. This exclusive titanium limited edition comes with a striking blue accent, ensuring modernity and movement on the wrist.

Titanium’s toughness presents significant machining and hand-finishing challenges for components made from it, such as GMT pushers or folding clasps or crowns. In addition, new hand-finished details have been created especially for this watch.

For the first time, the circular grained hour circle with polished bevels and the 72-hour chronograph power reserve display is presented in bright blue. The motherboard is now matte with polished bevels, countersunk and straight grained sides, and comes in a grey finish.

Set near eight o’clock, the blue-painted rotating globe provides simultaneous display of several different time zones: on the dial side, with a 24-hour ring around the globe for day/night indication, on the case-back side, Displays the respective time zones of the 24 major cities, with a distinction between daylight saving time (on a light background) and no daylight saving time (on a dark background).

A sapphire crystal window around the equator completes the watch, offering a complete view of the Earth in motion, with its continents immersed in deep blue waters, complementing the power reserve, hour ring and the delicate blue finish of the strap.
