BASELWORLD 2017 DAY 4: Blue Skies And Greubel Forsey

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.
