Black is the new black for Greubel Forsey. In 2015, the independent Swiss brand will launch a GMT Black timepiece, based on a new design. This unique unique edition of 22 pieces worldwide will feature a titanium case and treated with vacuum deposited ADLC.
Launched in 2011, the Greubel Forsey GMT houses a GF05 in house movement with 24 second tourbillon inclined at a 25 degree angle, GMT function, three-dimensional globe for day/night indication, rotating disc with 24 different time zones, daylight savings indication, and 72 hour power reserve. The globe alone took Greubel Forsey 18 months to develop in order to achieve the visual effect desired, while the movement took years of research and development.
The new black timepiece seems inspired by the popularity of another, this time unique and platinum, GMT Greubel Forsey which can be found at Marcus Watches. Aesthetically, both watches share much in common, down to the red indications. However, the weight of the materials will mean the new Greubel Forsey GMT will feel much lighter on the wrist.
