In 2015, the jury of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève awarded the “Aiguille d’Or” Grand Prix to Greubel Forsey’s Vision timepiece.
Housed in a white gold case and driven by the Tourbillon 24 Secondes – the third ground-breaking invention conceived by the watchmakers in La Chaux-de-Fonds – the Vision model stands out for its sobriety and simplicity of appearance. It suffices to turn the timepiece over to realize just how original a creation it is. Focused on honing the proportions of the case, Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey however refused to sacrifice the internal mechanism and the inclination of the tourbillon. On the display back, a dome carved out of sapphire crystal forms a cupola that both houses the tourbillon and allows it be viewed – particularly its lower bridge, the form of which is comparable to that of a vaulted Roman arch. The fashioning of this piece, with its “barrel-polished” surface, requires such rare expertise that each bridge with this finish is discreetly signed by the craftsman-decorator who completed it.
