With blue skies above and the sun shining bright, we took a stroll outside the fair over to Les Trois Rois hotel to visit Greubel Forsey, the young watchmaking company specializing in high-end timepieces. Co-Founder Stephen Forsey told us all about the brand’s Baselworld 2017 highlight, the interesting and engaging Balancier Asymetric.
When handling striking, repeating or pocket watches, it is often advised not to touch anything when the mechanism is striking. However, Greubel Forsey’s Grande Sonnerie is kept safely and accurately chiming by a special security mechanism. So, there is no risk of damage if the crown is accidentally pulled, and there is a full palate of security features ensuring even more accuracy.
