Greubel Forsey is back to Basel with a technical titan, its quadruple tourbillon timepiece in blue.
Often seen as one of the most advanced functions of a horological piece, the tourbillon is often a very difficult thing to squeeze into modern watches, Forsey takes this four steps further with its quadruple piece.
The 43mm piece has a blued dial comprised of a central hours and minutes display, followed by the power reserve indication subdial at the 2 o’clock position. The watch then boasts on its dial the skeletonized display for the tourbillons, 2 inner tourbillons with 1 rotation per minute and 2 outer tourbillons with 4 rotations per minute.
The bridges for these complications are comprised of gold, steel and nickel silver, sitting on the tourbillon bridges are small hands to show rotation, seconds are seen on the chapter ring. The casing of the watch comes in either platinum or red gold.
The Baselworld showstoppers are limited to 8 pieces per edition.
