Greubel Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon A Masterpiece On Wrist This watch collects two double tourbillon 30 degrees, four tourbillon therefore. The two exterior tourbillons make one complete revolution in 4 minutes, while the internal, inclined at 30 degrees, making one complete revolution in one minute.The Greubel Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon consists of 531 pieces (128 are used for each of the double tourbillon cage and a weight of just 1.17 grams) must work in unison to operate, this marvel of watchmaking.
A complicated mechanism that Greubel Forsey has patented and developed. The striking thing is that these 4 torubillon, these 594 pieces are assembled in a case of 43.5 mm in diameter and has a thickness of 16,11 mm: smaller than many watches much less complicated.Which makes this portable timepiece. If you look in the photo gallery, you will see a picture in which it is worn making it a really nice watch to wear.
The power reserve of this watch so complicated is 50 hours, which is possible thanks to a double-barrel coaxial Rapid rotating placed under the hour dial.
The sapphire crystals are rounded and asymmetrical.All the above is not needed, however, to explain the price (approximately one million dollars). I could also say that it takes more than two years to build one. I could add many other things. The only way to figure out some prices is to compare these watches (produced and sold a few pieces before being produced) to the works of art in which the price is made by many factors beyond the pure cost of production. They are pieces that end up in the hands of passionate collectors who spare no expense in order to have pieces like that.
It ‘difficult for us mere mortals to understand and accept certain price, but for the lucky owners, the price is not a problem, if anything, the problem is even able to find them.
The Greubel Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon is produced in pink gold or platinum (very rare).
