Cheap Replica Greubel Forsey Watches Stephen Forsey and the birth of a watch

— On collecting the award for the Replica Watches Greubel Forsey Tourbillon 24 Secondes Vision, Stephen Forsey stressed the need to preserve traditional watchmaking for future generations. Greubel Forsey’s “Naissance d’une montre” project is making great headway on this front.

For Stephen Forsey, success at the very top of the fine watchmaking pile for the past ten years is welcome, but handing down the skills and expertise of traditional watchmaking is just as important. He used his thank-you speech at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, where he collected the top Aiguille d’Or prize for the Cheap Fake Greubel Forsey Tourbillon 24 Secondes Vision, to urge others to follow his initiative in this respect.

The initiative in question is the “Naissance d’une montre” project, which was first conceived in 2007. “We have been putting a lot of energy into this project with Time Aeon foundation and we now have the first working piece that Michel Boulanger has built from scratch using only traditional tools and methods,” Stephen Forsey explained to WorldTempus. “It is one of only very few pieces in modern times that have been made this way and many people would not go that far, so it is a magical piece.” He adds: “It is always a challenge because if you just see a photo of one of our timepieces and some numbers it doesn’t really reflect the true value of the piece. You have to go deeper into the subject to see what we are trying to do. We go beyond the expectations of even the most demanding collectors, but it’s a challenge to get that message across.”
This “school watch” is the first tangible item to emerge from the project and will help the initiators better to promote their cause. It will be auctioned at the Christie’s sale in May 2016 in Hong Kong and the proceeds will go to the Time Aeon foundation. This will allow for an additional, strictly limited, series along the same lines. “These will be available by subscription to collectors,” says Stephen Forsey. “Here, too, all the profit will be ploughed back into the foundation and we are hoping this way that we can obtain funds that will allow us to transmit this know-how. At the moment we have Michel who is the guardian of the temple, but this is very fragile because it is only one person. We need to build a nucleus of people with these skills and expertise and we need to draw attention to that and see what support we can get from the watch community.”

The next major phase of the project will thus be one of communication. “What we have seen at Replica Greubel Forsey Watches with the help of Philippe Dufour on the ground in Singapore and Hong Kong in September, is that the whole community is concerned and willing to support the project,” says Stephen Forsey. “We are also pleased to have the support of auctioneers Christie’s, who dedicated a whole wall and showcase for us at the preview to their sale in Dubai. We are hoping to find one regional partner in all the key regions and we have some retailers who are going to support the project, such as Elegant Watch in Hong Kong and Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons in the UAE.”
The Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie in Switzerland is also a partner in the project and has granted it a separate, dedicated exhibition space at the SIHH 2016. It will be accessible from the new “Carré des Horlogers” housing the smaller independent brands and still be managed by Greubel Forsey. Philippe Dufour (the teacher), Michel Boulanger (the teacher turned apprentice) and Séverine Vitali (a hand-finishing specialist from Greubel Forsey) will all be on hand to explain the project during the exhibition. This marks an important turning point for the project, as Stephen Forsey concludes: “The idea is to give the project its own feet, because we have housed it in the Best Replica Greubel Forsey Watches stand up until now. It is, after all, a community project. Robert and myself have financed the project because we felt it was so important.”

You may recognise certain elements of the Double Balancier à Différentiel Constant. This SIHH 2016 novelty features the brand’s sixth invention (who’s counting?), first seen in the Double Balancier Incliné. The two inclined balance wheels, initially positioned one above the other, now occupy distinct and separate three-dimensional spaces that can be fully admired thanks a large aperture between 4 o’clock and 10 o’clock. The Double Balancier à Différentiel Constant is a limited edition of 33 pieces in white gold.

As its name suggests, the Signature 1 is the first in a new line of collaborative watches made between Sale Fake Greubel Forsey Watches and independent watchmakers. The collection, the latest ‘educational’ project led by the duo, is inaugurated by Didier J.G. Cretin. A longtime Best Replica Greubel Forsey partner, Cretin introduces a manually wound three-hands watch (the first ever at Greubel Forsey) that features an exclusive balance wheel and gold dial. The Signature 1 will be available in a limited edition of 33 pieces in gold, platinum, and steel (by advance order only).

Replica Watches Greubel Forsey scooped the industry’s most prestigious prize three months ago, when the Tourbillon 24 Secondes Vision was awarded the “Aiguille d’Or” prize at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève 2015. The victorious timepiece is back, this time in a celebratory red gold case with an anthracite dial and a sapphire case-back to let everyone admire the award-winning Tourbillon 24 Secondes.

Greubel Forsey – Tourbillon 24 Secondes Contemporain with Titanium Movement

Replica Watches Greubel Forsey presented the new Tourbillon 24 Secondes Contemporain Titanium with natural titanium movement housed in a red or white gold round case. The case measures 43.5mm in diameter by 15.2mm high and features synthetic sapphire crystals, domed on the dial side and a flat display back.

Fake Watches Greubel Forsey’s third invention, the Tourbillon 24 Secondes mechanism, is supported by a transparent sapphire bridge which gives the impression that the tourbillon is floating.

The long central tripod for the hour and minute hands and the multi-level dial with a raised sapphire chapter ring create a fascinating three dimensional dial.

-Greubel Forsey-

The only numeral in the dial – the “12” in red or white gold depending on the case metal – stands out for being raised from the chapter ring.

The power reserve indicator at 4 o’clock, the small seconds at 9 o’clock and the 24 seconds Replica Greubel Forsey Watches tourbillon at 6 o’clock create a nice contrast with the light grey of the natural titanium movement and integrated titanium bridges.

Through the sapphire crystal display back, the three NAC-treated anthracite bridges reveal the superb finishing: mirror-polished bevels, mirror-polished countersinks, straight-graining and snailed decoration on the mainspring barrel, and heat blued screws.

-Greubel_Forsey-

The movement comprises 268 components, 88 for the ultra‐light 0.39-gram Replica Watches Greubel Forsey For Sale tourbillon cage alone, and is powered by two coaxial mainspring barrels in series providing an optimal power reserve of 72 hours.

A hand-stitched alligator strap with a folding clasp in red gold or white gold completes the timepiece.

Replica Watches Greubel Forsey Art Piece 1, Featuring Micro-Sculpture Inside

Introduced in Geneva last month, the Cheap Fake Greubel Forsey Art Piece 1 is an amazing collaboration between watchmaker and artist. It features a 30° inclined double tourbillion, combined with a micro-scultpture, created by renowned artist Willard Wigan. The sculptures that Wigan creates are so small they are not even visible to the naked eye. So small intact, that Replica Watches Greubel Forsey had to build a microscope into the timepiece. This is unchartered territory, so it was no easy task to produce a microscope that has a large opening and enough light for a human eye to see in, without making the optic too big that it would ruin the proportions of the timepiece.

Greubel-Forsey-Art-Piece-1-

By closing one eye and looking through the optical opening in the crown, one can enjoy a magnified view of the one-of-a-kind micro-sculpture through the 23x microscope.

Greubel-Forsey-Art-Piece-1

To give you a better idea of how difficult it is to create something this small, Wigan has to slow down his heartbeat in order guide his scalpel in between the beats of his heart. When you think about how small, detailed and incredible watchmaking is — especially at the level that Fake Greubel Forsey Watches work at — it seems only fitting that they would collaborate with the artist best know for creating the world’s smallest works of art.

Replica Watches Greubel Forsey Diamond Set Tourbillon 24 Secondes Contemporain

Cheap Fake Greubel Forsey Watches are celebrating their 10th Anniversary in style this year, dressing the Tourbillon 24 Secondes Contemporain up in a bevy of diamonds.

greubel-forsey_tourbillon-24-secondes-edited

Admittedly Greubel Forsey is not a name you would usually associate with the phrase ‘Haute Joaillerie’, or diamonds in general for that matter, which for many (myself included) is a good thing. Don’t be fooled though, this is still Replica Watches Greubel Forsey, the term ‘compromise’ does not exist in their vocabulary, which means if they decide to make gem-set diamond timepiece, you know it’s going to be absolutely incredible. The Tourbillon 24 Secondes Contemporain is arguably one of Greubel Forsey’s most accessible and also most familiar pieces, making it the perfect candidate to help celebrate this important milestone. That being said, it is almost unrecognizable (in a good way of course) beneath the high quality, 272 baguette cut diamonds – totaling a healthy 9.71 carats – that now adorn the dial, the bezel and the lugs. As you would expect they are of the finest quality, clarity IF, color D-E. Presented in a 43.5mm white gold case, the Fake Watches Greubel Forsey Diamond Set Tourbillon 24 Secondes Contemporain is truly a thing of beauty.

Cheap Fake Watches Greubel Forsey – Double Balancier 35°

As the name suggests, the new Replica Watches Greubel Forsey Double Balancier 35° features two inclined fixed-oscillators and escapements driven through a spherical differential, which provides the average of their rates via the gear train to the time display.

Greubel Forsey Double Balancier 35

Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey began their research into inclined oscillators in 1999 unveiling a first working prototype with two inclined oscillators, each at 20°, at Baselworld in 2009. The timepiece presented today is an evolution from this first concept with the two inclined oscillators no longer superimposed but spatially disposed in different three dimensional planes.Cheap Fake Watches Greubel Forsey – Double Balancier 35° .

The goal is, of course, to further improve the chronometric timing performance for the wristwatch, both on and off the wrist. In fact, having two oscillators on different planes significantly reduce the possibility they are in either a horizontal (flat) or vertical position. Moreover, the two inclined fixed oscillators are linked by a spherical differential that averages rating differences and ensures an optimal performance at all times whether in stabilised ( horizontal or vertical) positions or dynamically (on the wrist).Cheap Replica Watches Greubel Forsey For Sale Online.

The beautiful skeletonised gold hands indicate the time against a polished black-oxidised gold chapter ring. Between the two visible inclined balances, the small seconds at 7 o’clock displays the running instantaneous average of the two regulators, while a 72-hour power reserve indicator at 2 o’clock keeps track of the optimal power available from the two co-axial, fast-rotating mainspring barrels. Finishing meets the highest standard. Replica Watches Greubel Forsey .

Replica Watches Greubel Forsey Present The Double Tourbillon Asymétrique

The watch industry has much to offer and for those interested in timepieces with their inner mechanics visible for all to see, there is much more choice than ten/fifteen years ago. Similar to any other industry, there can actually be only one brand that is the absolute pinnacle and in this case that brand is Best Sale Replica Greubel Forsey Watches. Their creations of time-telling pieces of art are simply exquisite and recently they introduced a new timepiece featuring their first Fundamental Invention, being the Double Tourbillon 30°.

In the summer of 2010 I visited Switzerland for Monochrome’s ‘Tour de Suisse‘ and I had my first encounter with the brilliant timepieces from Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey. At the time the Double Tourbillon 30° Edition Historique had just been introduced and that one became the first Cheap Replica Watches Greubel Forsey For Sale timepiece that won a prize in the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. This year Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey present a new, asymmetric, interpretation of this double tourbillon that is inclined by 30 degrees, called the Double Tourbillon Asymétrique.

greubel-forsey-double-tourbillon-asymetrique-

The Double Tourbillon 30° is Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey’s first Fundamental Invention, that found its way into the Double Tourbillon 30° Vision, Secret, Technique, the award winning Edition Historique and of course Invention Piece 1, which we showed you here together with the two other Invention Pieces.

For the new Cheap Fake Watches Greubel Forsey Double Tourbillon Asymétrique, the movement has been completely reconstructed, with the outer cage of the patented Double Tourbillon 30° inversed. The one-minute rotation of the inner tourbillon cage and the four-minute rotation of the outer tourbillon cage remain the same. The small seconds indication has been moved from the 9 o’clock position to the 6 o’clock position and the power reserve is now indicated by a rotating disk instead of a hand, but remains at at the 2 o’clock position. The individual number of each timepiece is engraved on a gold plate concentric to the power reserve indicator; in this case it was prototype number 2.

-greubel-forsey-double-tourbillon-asymetrique

The gold dial is finished in shades of grey, anthracite and black, with the two black minute rings positioned concentric around the satin-finished hour display, with applied polished white gold hour indexes. The hands and indexes are in harmony with their case – white gold or in red gold, depending on the version. For ideal legibility at night, the tips of the hour and minute hands have been filled with luminous material.

The Double Tourbillon Asymétrique is available in a unique edition comprising 11 pieces in white gold and 11 pieces in 5N red gold. The case measures 43.5 mm diameter and and 16.13 mm in height. The crystals, of course sapphire, are on both sides of the watch, as well in the lateral ‘bulge’ set into the case band. And that’s one of the superb details of the new Replica Watches Greubel Forsey Double Tourbillon Asymétrique; these opening offers a very special view of the double tourbillon system.

greubel-forsey-double-tourbillon-asymetrique_

The mainplates have been black treated, so that the tourbillon mechanism accentuates the three-dimensionality and depth of the double cages. The entire cage mechanism comprises no less than 130 components and all parts have been finished by hand. Take for instance the steel tourbillon bridge, which is flat black polished by hand.

The round gear train bridge is frosted, spotted (on the non visible side), with hand polished countersinks and polished bevels with a nickel-palladium treatment. The bright metal bridge juxtaposes superbly against the sobriety of the black-chromed mainplate. The bridge is fixed by four blued-steel screws and supports two white gold plates: one with the individual number of the timepiece; the other signed ‘Greubel Forsey’. The two in series configured mainspring barrels, which are finished in gold, provide a beautiful visual display, together with the gold center wheel.

_greubel-forsey-double-tourbillon-asymetrique

The mainplates in nickel silver (also called German silver) are frosted and feature straight grained flanks, hand polished countersinks and bevels, with a black chrome treatment. The entire manual-winding movement comprises 326 components and gets its power from two rapidly rotating mainspring barrels in series, which provide a 72-hour reserve of optimal power.This means that the power reserve is actually more, however the optimal power, for the best chronometric rates, is indicated. And that’s exactly what we expect from an ultra haute horlogerie brand like Best Sale Fake Greubel Forsey Watches.

The tourbillon’s balance is with variable inertia screws and with Phillips terminal curve beating at 3Hz/21,600 vibrations per hour.

Sophisticated Simplicity: Cheap Replica Greubel Forsey Signature 1

Over its decade-plus in existence, Replica Watches Greubel Forsey For Sale has produced some highly complicated watches, nearly all of which have featured at least one tourbillon. For its new Signature 1 timepiece, introduced in January at SIHH 2016, the haute horlogerie brand founded by Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey takes a different route.

Greubel_Forsey_Signature1_

The Greubel Forsey Signature 1 is the first in the new Signature collection, which will feature the works of a single watchmaker, applying his or her own creative vision to a watch that still maintains all of the distinctive horological DNA of Greubel Forsey. The watchmakers — in this case, one Didier J.G. Cretin, a longtime member of the brand’s watchmaking team — will draw on all of the technical resources and expertise of Cheap Fake Watches Greubel Forsey’s ultra-modern watchmaking atelier in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, to execute these original concepts, remaining true to the philosophy and standards of the brand while also enjoying a considerable amount of creative freedom. The philosophy behind the Signature series springs from the “Naissance d’une Montre” (Birth of a Watch) project, an initiative to preserve the knowledge and practice of traditional watchmaking practices that are in danger of being lost to industrialization, which Replica Watches Greubel Forsey For Sale Online helped launch in 2012 along with partners such as master watchmaker Philippe Dufour.

Greubel_Forsey_Signature1

The new watch — which features Cretin’s own signature on the dial, along with the names of the brand founders — is the first Greubel Forsey watch with a manual-wound movement and the first to feature no complications other than hours, minutes, and seconds, displayed on two subdials, . And while the Signature 1 offers no inclined tourbillons (as in the Geneva Grand Prix winning Tourbillon 24 Secondes Vision, among many others), miniature sculptures inside the movement (the Art Piece 1), or mechanical computers (the QP à Equation, last year’s SIHH headliner), it is no less sophisticated in both its technical and aesthetic aspects. It features an exclusively designed Greubel Forsey balance wheel, on display in the lower left quadrant of the partially openworked dial, providing symmetry with the hours-and-minutes subdial in the upper right. The dial itself is made of white silvered gold and features blued hands that have been finished and countersunk by hand.

Greubel_Forsey Signature1

The case measures 41.4 mm in diameter and 11.7 mm thick and has a polished and straight grained bezel and caseband. It is water-resistant to 30 meters and has convex sapphire crystals in the front and back. The in-house movement is composed of 190 parts (including 61 escapement components and 21 jewels in gold chatons) and carries a power reserve of 54 hours when fully wound. Among its many high-watchmaking attributes are a balance spring with Phillips terminal curve; polished inclined facets and black PVD treatment on the mainplate; côtes de Genève on the nickel silver bridges and circular graining on the barrel bridge; and a flat black-polished steel balance-wheel bridge. The watch comes on a hand-stitched alligator strap with a pin buckle bearing a hand-engraved Best Sale Fake Watches Greubel Forsey logo.

Greubel Forsey_Signature1_

The Greubel Forsey Signature 1 will be available in a strictly limited edition of 33 pieces, which break down as follows: 11 pieces in white gold, 11 pieces in rose gold (both priced at $185,ooo) and 11 pieces in stainless steel (another first for the Cheap Replica Watches Greubel Forsey brand) with a blue dial, priced at $170,000 and available exclusively in the United States. All 33 pieces are expected to be available in Summer 2016. Shortly afterward, the brand plans to release 11 pieces in platinum and an additional 22 pieces of the steel version (with a different colored dial) to the rest of the world. Below you’ll find a few photos of the Signature 1 taken at SIHH.

The Replica Watches Greubel Forsey GMT (Live Pics & Pricing) For Sale

Greubel Forsey watches have to be seen in the metal to be appreciated. The multi-axis tourbillons and multi-layer dials have tons of visual depth, but the Cheap Fake Watches Greubel Forsey GMT adds a whole extra level – a three-dimensional titanium globe that acts as a worldtime complication. This is one serious timepiece and we recently had the opportunity to go hands-on to capture some live photos. This is one you don’t want to miss.

Greubel Forsey GMT

Rather than starting with the more basic functions, let’s jump right to that globe. Many watches claim to be “worldtimers” when they are in fact GMTs – the former tells you the time in all timezones at once while the latter simply provides a second timezone indicator. The Best Replica Watches Greubel Forsey GMT For Sale Online is just the opposite – sure, there is a 12-hour GMT hand at 9 o’clock on the main time dial, but the globe at 7:30 and a cities disk on the back of the movement also give you a true worldtimer.

Greubel Forsey GMT-

The globe itself is a titanium dome decorated to look like the northern hemisphere. The bi-color 24 hour ring around the edge tells you the time graphically as the globe rotates, completing one revolution per day (as you’d expect). Multiple layers allow the 24-hour scale to change between two colors as the globe spins, indicating day and night as well. You can see the side of the globe through a small window by the lower lug on the 43.5mm rose gold case.

-Greubel Forsey GMT-

On the back of the Cheap Fake Greubel Forsey GMT Watches For Sale is the worldtime ring with a list of world cities. A gold sun under the globe indicates the noon position and two reference time rings have been provided, an outer ring for standard time and an inner ring for summer time. This is a nice touch that many worldtime watches for you to compensate for yourself.

Greubel Forsey-GMT

In addition to this awesome complication is a tourbillon with a 25 degree incline that rotates once every 24 seconds, as well as a small seconds register, and a 72-hour power reserve indicator.
The example we have here is rose gold, though there is a white gold version available as well – they are both prices $595,000.

Replica Watches Greubel Forsey Art Piece 1 Tribute To Robert Filliou

Today, Replica Watches Greubel Forsey For Sale announced another version in their slowly but surely expanding Art Piece 1 collection – an extremely limited line of unique watches that feature a genuinely microscopic sculpture, crafted by Willard Wigan. The Cheap Fake Greubel Forsey Art Piece 1 Robert Filliou is the latest addition, following pieces that featured barely visible maquettes of a sailboat, a hummingbird, a falcon and even a tribal mask.

Greubel Forsey Art Piece 1

As usual, the centerpiece of the watch is the unfathomably small sculpture created by micro-sculptor artist Willard Wigan. For more details, and a closer look at an Art Piece, check out our hands-on article about the Replica Watches Greubel Forsey Art Piece 1 here. For this piece, he made a black hat with cards flying out from it and his creation is visible through the magnifying glass integrated into the side of the case – as seen on the image above. The association is clear and unmistakeable: it is a magicians hat featuring a well-known trick, where cards are magically flying out from it. This is executed in a tribute to French “Fluxus artist” Robert Filliou, who produced works as a filmmaker, sculptor, and happenings maestro.

-Greubel Forsey Art Piece 1

The caseback side of the movement carries on the “tribute” nature of the new Fake Watches Greubel Forsey Art Piece 1 the plate of the movement is adorned with a unique pattern that displays the silhouette of Filliou. And while it could possibly also work as a tribute to Karl Lagerfeld, as a “Where’s Waldo” kind of game those eagle-eyed can actually search for the silhouette of Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey – if you are tired of looking for them, I’ll tell you: they are at the 5 o’clock position.

-Greubel Forsey Art Piece 1-

The Greubel Forsey Art Piece 1 Robert Filliou is a watch Grebuel Forsey created for a special exhibit in Paris honoring Filliou and his work. Given the usual price point of watches in this series – which is at around $1.5 million – one has to wonder how crazed about fine watchmaking and monsieur Filliou’s work one has to be to pick this watch up. Anyhow, it is always great to see Best Sale Replica Greubel Forsey Watches try themselves at such new and bold things – although I for one am looking forward to seeing them come up once again with something new that concentrated more on the art that fine watchmaking is all by itself – without something else being blended into the mix.
