The makers of world-acclaimed tourbillion movements offer a second serving of what is already loved piece of horlogerie. On October 2015, Greubel Forsey was awarded with the “Aiguille d’Or” by the Jury of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Geneve, for their 24 Seconds Vision—a second snatching of the top prize, following their first triumph in 2010.

Now, Greubel Forsey relives the taste of victory with another rendition of their well-favoured timepiece. The Tourbillon 24 Seconds Vision offers a darker charm in black and red gold colours, compared to the white gold and white dial pairing of the initial design. A tasteful, handsome approach to the former minimal aesthetics, the new version presents a richer, deluxe feel, with classic colours to fit any masculine hand.

What is inside the watch? It is powered with the same 24-seconds tourbillon, an exclusive make from a brand known for its exceptional movement. Despite its powerful inner architecture, everything is housed in a compacted case 13.65 mm thick, a bit leaner than some of the brand’s initial offerings. More than just for the aesthetics, the case is made to set the complications in order. The sapphire glass, both in back and front, are split to provide enough room for the tourbillon’s movement, which is inside a translucent bubble.

For anyone looking for a beautifully detailed craftsmanship, this watch is just perfect. The plates and bridges have undergone precise polishing that gives of a perpetual shin, avoiding distortion of shape and size. Everything is placed neatly against another, topped with a frosted plate for wearability.

Hour markers and hands propose an effortlessly charming design; indicative lines are engraved in silvery white, shining brilliantly along with the slim gold hands. The watch can be stylishly strapped on with a black alligator leather bracelet.
