It is unusual enough for Greubel Forsey timepieces to appear at auction, but two together and both the super-popular but ultra-rare GMT Sport watch is a unique occurrence.

The GMT Sport in a titanium case was introduced in 2019 as Greubel Forsey’s first foray into the red hot sports watch market.

The watch had a new movement, designed from scratch, with a tourbillon and universal time displayed using a three-dimensional globe.

Christie’s in Dubai will sell the two GMT Sport watches at its Watches Online: The Dubai Edit sale in March, which is taking place online from March 15-29.

A blue version was limited to 11 pieces by Greubel Forsey while a red model was the only one made in that color.

Both go under the hammer with a pre-sale estimate of $400,000 to $600,000.

“This is the first time this model arrives on the sales market. And not only one, but two! Launched by Greubel Forsey in December 2019, the GMT Sport blends outstanding architectural design with horological mastery and augmented ergonomics. For collectors and connoisseurs of modern Haute Horlogerie this is a rare opportunity to acquire such unique pieces,” says Remy Julia, Head of Watches Christie’s EMEA.
