Greubel Forsey Swiss Watch is a new modern brand of high-tech, precise, reliable and expensive watches. Greubel Forsey specializes in sophisticated and high quality timepieces and is based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. Greubel Forsey manufactures watches with multiple tourbillons and tilted balance wheels to improve timekeeping accuracy.
Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey launched Greubel Forsey in 2004 at BaselWorld with their Double Tourbillon 30° (DT30). The two men have worked together since 1992 at Renaud & Papi, developing complex watch movements. In 1999, Grebel and Forsey began working independently, and in 2001 they founded Complitime SA, a company specializing in the creation of complex movements for high-end Swiss watch brands.
In 2006, the company created the Opus 6 model together with the American jewelry house Harry Winston. Also in 2006, a minority stake in the Greubel Forsey brand was acquired by the Richemont group. The brand has invented and introduced a range of tourbillon watches, including: Double Tourbillon 30° (DT30°), Quadruple Tourbillon à Différentiel, Tourbillon 24 Secondes Incliné and GMT. At SIHH 2012, Greubel Forsey presented its first model without a tourbillon, the Double Balancier 35°.
Greubel Forsey specializes in the design and manufacture of high quality timepieces that are usually, but not necessarily, based on tourbillon escapements and are known for their high level of handcrafted finishes. The company produces about 100 watches a year.
The Double Tourbillon 30° Technique won the 2009 Best Grand Complication award at the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix. In 2012, the Invention Piece 2 watch won the Best Complicated Watch award. At the 2015 Grand Prix, the brand received the Golden Arrow award for the Tourbillon 24 Secondes Vision in white gold. The Hand Made 1 was awarded the Best Complicated Men's Watch at the 2020 Grand Prix.
