The latest addition to Greubel Forsey’s breathtaking Art Piece collection is this superb Art Piece 2, Edition 1 watch, a stunning watchmaking statement that’s also a coded celebration of the two men behind the Swiss brand.
Boasting with secret messages and interesting horological illusions, this elegant watch will surely be a great conversation starter, especially with other fans of the Swiss watchmaker, who will surely enjoy this timepiece on a deeper level than anyone else.
The Greubel Forsey Art Piece 2, Edition 1, has some ‘big shoes’ to fill, sharing all of its siblings’ traits, like the tiny sculpture hidden in the crown, which can be only seen through a series of lenses.
The exquisite watch also shows off a floating Double Tourbillon 30º, polished to a mirror-like finish and since this is a design meant for connoisseurs, even telling the time at the Art Piece 2, Edition 1 requires some insider knowledge; by depressing the pusher at 4 o’clock, a fan revealing the hours is activated and you may tell time.
The attractive texture of the bronze dial adds warmth to the cool titanium case of the watch, almost putting out a retro, 1970s vibe, that could charm anyone. Since we’ve mentioned earlier the two watchmakers behind Greubel Forsey, you should know that you’ll find their signatures engraved on the beautifully finished caseback, which provides a serene contrast to the embellished dial.
Please note that only a few units of the Greubel Forsey Art Piece 2, Edition 1, will be produced every year, and each one will cost 590,000 CHF.
