PACKED WITH SKILL
A new chapter in the history of Greubel Forsey opens with a compact watch that still stays true to the brand’s technical DNA and design approach.
A major innovation at Greubel Forsey has taken shape with the launch of the brand’s smallest watch to date. To fine-tune this original model, limited to just 33 pieces, the movement was redesigned from scratch. The aim was to incorporate the exclusive regulating mechanism with a 12.6mm balance wheel, first launched in 2017, into a multi-levelled dial in the brand’s purest style, but in smaller size. The Balancier Contemporain is housed in a 39.6mm-wide grey gold case. The inclusion of the regulating mechanism has influenced the watch’s design. The features include an off-centred display of the hours and minutes on a disc placed at 2 o’clock. The small seconds are discreetly located in a sub-dial at 8 o’clock. A power reserve indicator rounds off the time complications. The design of the dial with its blue-tinted hands makes use of a wide range of finishes for optimum readability.

All the features are driven by a hand-wound mechanical movement with 255 components. The ample power reserve of 72 hours is achieved with the help of two series-coupled fast-rotating barrels. The calibre also has a “stop balance” system activated by the crown when the time is set.

The case back features an engraved grey-gold plaque where you can find a series of words outlining the Greubel Forsey philosophy.
