And just because ladies also appreciate the horological masterpieces of Greubel Forsey, the brand released this diamond-set Balancier Contemporain earlier this year. This highly original creation is distinguished by its 39.6 mm case diameter —a first from Greubel Forsey which generally makes much larger timepieces—, that represented a challenge not only by making sure that the case was big enough to house the large balance wheel within a limited space, but also to achieve optimal proportions and an attractive three-dimensional construction by safeguarding the emblematic aesthetic codes of Greubel Forsey.
Its mother-of-pearl dial has been exquisitely finished with the multi-layer construction that only Greubel Forsey knows how to execute flawlessly. Featuring a black lacquered hour-ring and a minute-circle, the visual opening for the balance wheel at six o’clock takes the center stage. Running seconds at 9 and an arch 72-hour power reserve indicator between 11 and 12 o’clock complete the front of the timepiece with all indications hand-engraved. A sparkling sculpture, this lustrous new creation stands out like the Balancier Contemporain for its compact size and its exclusive balance wheel system.
Its unique proportions are enhanced by the brilliance radiance of the diamonds where the bezel, case band, lugs and crown are all invisibly set with the finest Flawless D-E quality baguette-cut diamonds. The case in white gold features domed sapphire crystals on front and back, and the watch is delivered on a black satin strap with white gold pin buckle.
