Esteemed watchmakers Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey founded Greubel Forsey in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland in 2004. The company specializes in creating timepieces that have extreme above-average accuracy and precision. One of their flagship watches, the Double Tourbillon Technique, won the International Chronometry competition at the Le Locle Museum of Horology in 2011. The prize is given for the watch that best maintains accuracy through 30 days of tests split between France and Switzerland. The watches are exposed to magnetic fields, and multiple shocks, designed to emulate the harsh conditions a watch may encounter over the wearer’s lifetime.
Double Tourbillon Technique
The mechanism that drives the Double Tourbillon Technique is, not surprisingly, called a double tourbillon. Greubel and Forsey began work on the prototype long before they started their company, and had a working-concept model ready in 2002. The single tourbillon was invented by Swiss watchmaker Abraham Breguet in 1795. The tourbillon essentially balances the intricate timekeeping parts of the watch within a balanced, rotating cage, in order to counter the effect of gravity on the accuracy of timekeeping. While accuracy is the first objective, the tourbillon is used in many high-end wristwatches today to demonstrate the skill of the watchmaker. With the double tourbillon, Greubel Forsey sought to not only create one of the most accurate watches in the world (a feat that they certainly accomplished), but also to demonstrate their tireless dedication to design and manufacturing perfection. Not surprisingly, the selling price for some limited edition models can be as much as $575,000.
Other popular models include the Tourbillon 24 Seconds, the GMT, and the Quantieme Perpetual.
