Powered by an all-new movement and a distinctive tapered case, the latest 24-second tourbillon is not only sleeker than its predecessor, but testament to the brand's unwavering pursuit of mechanical excellence and accuracy
This April, as we walked around Switzerland and explored the small watchmaking towns around Geneva, we drove to La Chaux-de-Fonds - a UNESCO World Heritage Site recognized as the most important watchmaking town in the world one of the centers. It's home to more than 100 companies - large and small - and until the early 20th century, more than half of the world's watches were produced here.
Our first stop in this "Watch Valley" was Greubel Forsey. Set on a grassy knoll, Greubel Forsey's ultra-modern studio is not to be missed. The tall, triangular, all-glass façade is actually a 17th-century farmhouse purchased by the company's founders in 2007. A symbol of Greubel Forsey's watchmaking philosophy - combining traditional craftsmanship with breakthrough technology - the facility offers a fascinating glimpse into the future of haute couture timepieces from Switzerland. This is where we first see the architecture of the new 24-second tourbillon, which in many ways symbolizes the brand's new aesthetic direction.high quality replica watches
As the latest version of Greubel Forsey's fastest spinning and tilting tourbillon, the 24-Second Architecture is part of a "convex collection" focused on lightweight titanium watches. While we're all in awe of the brand's mesmerizing tilting escapement and multi-axis tourbillon cage, these sculptural timepieces -- most of us would agree -- aren't easy to wear. Featuring a new movement and a tapered case fit for the wrist, the Tourbillon 24 Secondes Architecture is not only sleeker than previous models, but a testament to the brand's quest for mechanical excellence and accuracy.
Let's take a deep dive into how Greubel Forsey puts all its know-how into a unique wrist building experience.
Conical housing To make this complication watch fit better on the wrist than its predecessor, Greubel Forsey transformed the traditional case construction into a frustum (a hollow cone cut off at the top) design, which has enough room for 354 components , without making the watch look bulky. Interestingly, the diameter of the caseback (47.05mm) is slightly wider than the bezel (45.5mm), which lends a compact feel to the overall aesthetic.Jacob & Co. Astronomia Casino
At first glance, the case is perfectly round, and the transparent sides reveal its convex shape from different angles. Thanks to the sapphire crystal ring around the case, one can truly admire the complex movement in all its glory from the front, the back and even the side.
naked architecture The veritable 24-second architecture of the tourbillon takes you into its deep 3D facet with many highlights to study and appreciate. The dial actually exposes the hand-wound movement made of delicate components. Greubel Forsey has been equipping its complex dials with small sapphire windows since 2007, and for the first time, it fully exposes the movement thanks to the transparent middle case and sapphire crystal on the caseback.
The most fascinating aspect of this 3D watch is the view it offers from the aperture at 6:00 on the case strap - seeing the 24-second tourbillon (rotating at 25° every 24 seconds to ensure exceptional performance) makes People are excited.

Talking about the most obvious features on the watch, the hours and minutes of this piece are indicated with the help of two large curved and skeletonized hands made of polished steel. The small seconds are displayed at 8 o'clock, while the power reserve indicator is strategically placed at 3 o'clock and supported by a separate titanium bridge. The fascinating depth of this watch comes not only from the inclined 24-second tourbillon, but also from the 3D curved grade 5 titanium bridges of the tourbillon, barrel and power reserve indicator.
excellent finishing As always, Greubel Forsey has used the finest finishing techniques not only in the appearance of the watch, but also in every geometric part. Polishing grade 5 titanium is no easy task, but in this case, the brand even mirror-polished the arched bridges to perfection - enhancing the appeal of the ultra-smooth, reflective surface. The caseback reveals part of the gear train on the large baseplate with a frosted and mirror-polished bevel on top. The tourbillon’s lower bridge is also concentrically brushed and beautifully hand-bevelled on the sides.replica luxury watches
