Greubel Forsey Historique

The RG Double Tourbillon is back from service at GF and it is great to have it on the wrist. I ordered a purple strap and think it works really well.

Fantastic watch and cool strap

I'm curious, nobody ever mentions how well GF watches with their amazing complications keep time. What's your experience?

Thank you. Good question.

In my experience they are very accurate and never need adjusting in regular use but I must confess I don’t obsess about accuracy so haven’t attempted to measure them scientifically.

Taken from wiki “.....won the Grand Prix de l’Aiguille d’Or in 2010 for the Double Tourbillon 30° Édition Historique in 5N red gold (ie this watch); and the International Chronometry Competition in 2011 for the Double Tourbillon 30 Technique (my other GF at present)”.

The latter in particular is a pretty serious award specifically on accuracy.

Love the purple strap with this gold GF!

Gives it a bit of a Thanos infinity gauntlet vibe wink

Thank you! Yes I am pleased with my purple request. I actually have a purple one also for my Technique but it remains on the bottle green for the moment. [nt]

Very beautiful watch!

 By: baufoam : July 9th, 2019-23:17
It looks quite large (massive in fact), how big is the Greubel Forsey? How many millimeters across?

44.5mm and 16.1mm thick. Not a small watch for sure but smaller than the Technique pictured here.

How big is the Technique? 46, 47 mm? A beast! [nt]

Holy Moly! What a watch to own. The holy grail of

Watchmakers for me. Must have a great feel good factor. Plus most of the general public wouldn't recognize such an outstanding watch. I'm afraid I'd have to stop you if I saw it on your wrist. Enjoy. Cheers

Amazing and gorgeous GF .

Love that strap combo 👌🏻

Thank you everyone. The fact that very few know what it is is most of the appeal! [nt]

What an incredible watch...

 By: holdemchamp1225 : July 10th, 2019-08:14
you can see the depth and multiple layers just from the photos which I know does not do it justice.
Also, kudos for the purple strap. It brings a cool and fun factor to this amazing piece of micro-machinery.

Thank you kind Sir! [nt]

Absolutely amazing piece you have there!  You must be very happy to have it back - hope the service didn't take too long?  It's definitely not one of the things I look forward to when it's time to send some of my watches off for service...

The purple strap goes very well with the rose gold case - a special timepiece calls for a special strap, that's for sure.

Enjoy your fabulous collection in the best of health!

Kind regards.

Thank you! GF servicing times are very good and really shame certain other manufacturers....... [nt]
