PRE­CI­SION IN­STRU­MENT

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style | Watches -

GREUBEL FORSEY GIVES A NOD THIS YEAR TO THOSE WHO PRE­FER A LIT­TLE DIS­CRE­TION, WITH THE TOUR­BIL­LON 24 SEC­ONDS VI­SION. ITS WELL-KNOWN 25-DE­GREE-IN­CLINED TOUR­BIL­LON, WHICH THE MAN­U­FAC­TURE SAYS IS THE OP­TI­MUM AN­GLE TO AV­ER­AGE OUT PO­SI­TIONAL VARI­ANCES ON A WRIST­WATCH, MAKES ONE REVO­LU­TION EV­ERY 24 SEC­ONDS AND IS ONLY SLIGHTLY VIS­I­BLE DIAL-SIDE THROUGH AN APER­TURE. THE CASE IS TRA­DI­TION­ALLY ROUND, BUT THE TOUR­BIL­LON STILL RE­QUIRES SOME MORE SPACE WITHIN; A DOME HAS BEEN ADDED TO THE SAP­PHIRE DIS­PLAY BACK, WHICH AL­LOWS A FULL VIEW OF THE TOUR­BIL­LON, NEXT TO THE POWER RE­SERVE IN­DI­CA­TOR. IT’S AC­TU­ALLY VERY COM­FORT­ABLE AND HARDLY NO­TICE­ABLE WHEN WORN. GREUBEL FORSEY’S IN­SIS­TENCE ON AB­SO­LUTE PER­FEC­TION WITH THE FIN­ISH­ING IS HIGHLY VIS­I­BLE THROUGH­OUT, SUCH AS ON THE MIR­ROR FIN­ISH ON THE TOUR­BIL­LON BRIDGE, THE HAND-FIN­ISHED BLUED STEEL HANDS, AND THE ENAM­ELLED IN­DICES ON THE DIAL.
