Greubel Forsey luxury During the Geneva Watch Days 2021, Greubel Forsey presents the third and final interpretation of its GMT Earth. Crafted from titanium, this deep black version is limited to 11 pieces.
Greubel Forsey’s GMT Earth is an extraordinary watch that, for the first time, allows you to see the world at a glance.
This technological feat first appeared in 2011. At the time of the first “GMT”, the Earth was not yet fully manifested. Seven years later, the design for Earth is finally complete: visible from every angle in the new sapphire niche, it appears to be floating in space. On the front and back, a laser-engraved globe shows the world time in a quick and easy-to-read format.
The first version of GMT Earth replica was platinum. The second is platinum. Now, this watch comes with a new titanium case. The titanium GMT Earth will be limited to 11 pieces, three times less than the original. Weighing just 117 grams, the strap is two-thirds lighter. The case is a little over a third lighter.
Titanium is used not only for the entire case, but also for the bridges, GMT pusher, crown and folding clasp, the latter two being the parts most vulnerable to shocks and scratches.
To complement the light and matte shades of titanium, Greubel Forsey opted for a black dial. It works with speckled baseplates and all matte bridges with straight sides, polished bevels and countersunk holes. This treatment is also used on the all-black natural rubber strap, whose inner surface is engraved with the basic values of Greubel Forsey and is visible on the bezel.
GMT Earth displays four key pieces of information on its dial side. The first is the eccentric hour, minute and second display. The first two large skeleton hands are decorated with Super-LumiNova luminous coating, and there is a small seconds on the sapphire disc at 3 o’clock. Discount watches
On the left is the GMT hour-marker, whose red hands stand out effortlessly against the hand-engraved lacquered black-gold disc. The third, located opposite the crown, is the power reserve, whose design follows the same process: black engraved with gold, filled with lacquer and covered by silver-polished steel hands.
Finally, between 7 and 9 o’clock, the earth occupies the most space, and completes a full rotation in 24 hours. An engraved sapphire ring around the equator acts as a day/night indicator, allowing you to instantly see which hemisphere is during the day and which is at night.
The last window on the side of the strap opens to show the equator. Thanks to this, the Earth can really be seen from every angle. quality replica watch
Finally, on the bottom cover side, the world time display indicator completes the design. The 24 time zones represent UTC for the 24 major cities – those that observe daylight saving time on a white background.
GMT Earth features Greubel Forsey’s third invention, the 24-second tourbillon, which uses rapid rotation and setting an angle to solve gravity-related positioning problems that are critical to the operation of the oscillator. The 25° angle and rapid rotation of the tourbillon cage significantly improve the timekeeping performance of systems containing only one tourbillon, especially those in a fixed position.
