Greubel Forsey unveils stunning GMT Earth limited edition in titanium

The high-end Swiss brand has unveiled a completely modern version of its iconic world timer, with physical brightness and visual clarity on the menu.

It’s been ten years since fake Greubel Forsey released its first GMT timepiece, one of the first from the high-end Swiss brand, where the focus is not only on the tourbillon, but the main complication goes beyond the power-reserve indicator device.

In the decade since, the GMT has become one of the company’s most iconic watches, thanks to its spectacular 3D titanium globe and day/night indicator, giving the wearer an intuitive look at the time anywhere in the world at a glance.

In addition, the globe at 7 o’clock is equipped with a second time zone display at 10 o’clock, offset hours and minutes at 1 o’clock, small seconds at 2 o’clock, power reserve indicator at 3 o’clock, rapid rotation The 24-second tilting tourbillon is located at 5 o’clock. In addition, the bottom panel displays UTC Universal and Daylight Savings Time for 24 cities in major time zones.

Early GMT is presented in a precious metal casing. Greubel Forsey then launched its first sports watch in 2015 using the original, three-patented GMT format, the GMT Black, with a stealthy black gold dial and a black ADLC titanium case.

Four years later, the brand has combined the GMT concept with titanium for the second time with the GMT Sport watch, featuring a repositioned tourbillon, central hour and minute hands, and an ergonomic grade 5 titanium case. It was followed by the GMT Sport earlier this year with a one-piece titanium bracelet.

Strength, Brightness and Biocompatibility
Today, Greubel Forsey has chosen to take advantage of the properties of titanium – strength, lightness and non-allergic – and apply them again to its GMT. This time, the brand did just that using its GMT Earth as a platform.

First launched in 2018, GMT Earth is Greubel Forsey’s GMT design, the most complete representation of this extraordinary world time globe, showing both the northern and southern hemispheres, by ensuring that it is visible from almost all angles.

First, the sapphire crystal above the dial extends down to the case band, where there is also a curved sapphire porthole. And on the case back, the presence of another spherical sapphire crystal allows one to see the south pole of the titanium sphere, which appears to be suspended in mid-air.

clean and modern
Titanium is used for the globe, movement bridges, case, crown, GMT pusher and deploying clasp, reducing the weight of the entire timepiece to 117 grams. Not bad when you consider this is a 450-component movement housed in a 45.5mm case.

The theme of this titanium GMT Earth is not just physical lightness, but also visual lightness and clarity.

The hand-brushed bridges provide a sober anthracite-coloured backdrop for the gold-plated gears and two-tone display, each with light grey numerals on a black background, or – in the case of the hours, minutes and small seconds – a transparent sapphire ring. The logo is framed by a black sapphire bezel with Greubel Forsey’s basic values ​​in French.

Let’s remember, this is a Greubel Forsey timepiece, so the trim is the best around, and the bridges are hand-chamfered and polished. The surface also features a straight grain, black finish and speckled finish.

All in all, when you add the black, anthracite and light grey colour scheme of the movement, case and dial to the subtle hand-finished options, it helps to calm the hustle, resulting in a very clean and modern GMT. Popular cheap watch
