Hands on review of the Genus GNS 1

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.

I finally found some fame. My collection gets the air time it deserves!

Thank you for sharing! Every piece was spectacular, but for me the highlights were: 1. Your Greubel Forsey 2. The way you say "Breg-A numerals" (I'm going to start to say it that way now, too) 3. The lighting which makes it look like you're in the Watch C

I think this watch is one of my fav from the latest sihh. I prefer the dial layout compared to the balancier one and the size, just below 40mm makes it very elegant. A beauty! Fx
