The Most Complicated Watch In The SIHH 2014

Le 20 January opened the International watchmaking in Geneva, for 16 prestigious watchmaking houses to present their novelties. It is customary for the media and blogs ” to elect the most beautiful watches in the living room“, a choice inevitably very subjective we all agree, although it is likely that we presented also the favorite watches of MagMontres during the next edition…»

Today, we decided to be more objective by presenting the most complicated watch presented on the occasion of the SIHH 2014. If you are not an expert in watches, you may be a little lost, but don’t worry, that won’t stop you assign 1001 qualifiers…

The prize for the most complicated of the 2014 SIHH watch goes to the Greubel Forsey brand, a factory known to lovers of watchmaking, but much less from the rest of the world, normal when you produce a hundred watches a year, right?

Based in La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland, Greubel Forsey is the result of the association in 2004 Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey, two enthusiasts with an ambition common ‘we wanted to create timepieces of our dreams. ” Dreams that have impressive prices suddenly, usually around € 500,000, Yes, we are here on high-end luxury watches, of very fine watchmaking as you will discover with the 2014 brand creation, The perpetual calendar with Equation. Check here for a GPS watch with LED screen.

 

To present this exceptional timepiece, Word to the architects of this watch:

 

For almost a decade, we have dedicated our energy to reinvent the whirlwind. It is time, now, to develop complications in the literal sense of the term. This GMT in 2012, opened the way, the perpetual (quantieme PS) equation has been confirmed.

 

The revival of the mechanical computer, incorporating an equation of time.

To harmoniously integrate this complication, a mechanical computer created. This mechanism consists of a stack of cams of irregular forms, equipped with “fingers”. These will trigger changes in the directions: dial, we find the 24-hour day/night, the day of the week, the big date, the month and the hour-minute. on the side of bridges, the equation of time, seasons, and the year.

This system, which has contributed to the three patents, is more compact and integrated perfectly the equation of time at the heart of the mechanical computer. It is easiest to fix in both directions, safely.

All settings are made without additional corrector. There is only one disengaged position via the Crown; the adjustment is made even easier for a date simple, because the PS to Equation of Greubel Forsey is bidirectional.

Here’s the happy paradox of this piece: it’s a ultra resolutely complicated with its inclined tourbillon and his PS to Equation complete, but that adjusts and lives with the ease of a three hands/date.

 

Our QP to Equation chanting the seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, seasons and years, in harmony with the equation of time integrated with the mechanical computer. Symbolically, we couldn’t dream more beautiful way to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Greubel Forsey.

Greubel Forsey –

 

A priori this watch deserves its price, the sophistication here is pushed to the extreme, even if other watches presented this year were also amazed fans to watch the image of the planetarium proposed by Van Cleef & Arpels… but maybe count assign us other prizes…
