ART PIECE EDITION HISTORIQUE
Launched during the SIHH 2019, this very special Edition Historique
is a mix of some Greubel Forsey’s key creations/elements.
First, i focused my attention on the Gorgeous Double Tourbillon 30° (at 8 o’clock) hold by a long flat black polished bridge. I simply never get tired of seeing such complex mechanism and knowing that the complication is basically at the foundation of the brand, makes me love it even more.
The Power reserve indication (72 hours) is pretty clear as much as the small seconds subdial (at 10.30). Now, you perhaps are familiar with the shapes of its « Dial » and you’re right because it’s clearly inspired by the Harry Winston - Opus 6. Another major project which announced some Greubel Forsey’s codes aesthetically. To me, they’re the only brand to explore on such high quality a multi-level construction. The hands, subdials or disc displays are fantastic. Do i need to talk about the finishing? They’re just the Best.
The words engraved on the front and side case represent the values of the Maison Horlogère.
The red triangle on the dome indicates the hour. You might wonder where can i see the minutes ? Well, a pusher on the crown makes them appear (on demand) through an aperture. Located behind the words « Art Piece », the minutes disc is unveiled and i would say that it was one of those “magical” moments.
It’s such pleasure to review the 2019 Greubel Forsey novelties and on the wrist, the Art Piece Edition Historique just looks Stunning!
