Looking closely at the gaping heart of the new Art Piece Edition Historique di Greubel Forsey, given the three-dimensional construction and the very original geometry, we realize how this timepiece is able to crown the avant-garde aesthetic approach, which is the basis of numerous exceptional creations to which the brand has accustomed us.
Greubel Forsey therefore pays homage to this artistic and architectural approach with a creation that sums up and amplifies its true spirit.
The Art Piece Edition Historique encloses in its 44 mm diameter case a new movement with a variation on the theme of Double Tourbillon 30 °, a mechanism designed to allow the balance wheel to oscillate consistently in all planes ensuring maximum precision. The new hand-wound 475-component movement boasts a 72-hour power reserve with optimal chronometric performance, ensured by two rapidly rotating barrels coupled in series.
Hours are discreetly displayed by a red hand on a separate rotating ring, while minutes appear on demand through an aperture (photo below), thanks to a simple push of the crown button.
The Art Piece Edition Historique establishes itself as a “philosophical timepiece” and attracts the collector to experience a new relationship with temporality, based on a deeper consideration of time that passes and time that remains. A real invitation to "carpe diem" to make the most of the moment. Price over 600.000 EURO.
