Greubel Forsey GMT Black: For the Ultimate Globetrotter
Putting together the very best of art and science, Greubel Forsey has come up with the GMT Black timepiece—a definite must-have for the ultimate man of the world who’s not afraid to traverse and explore new lands and immerse himself in new experiences.
It’s no coincidence that the GMT Black was designed in such a way resembling an old navigation system, even bearing a partial replica of the globe within the dial as well. While this timepiece may not suit everyone’s taste and preferences, it would certainly stand out amongst the real connoisseurs who can appreciate a horological masterpiece when they see one. And as such, Greubel Forsey dares to push the boundaries of creativity and innovation, as well as having that distinctive character with this rare and unique watch.
Encased in quality titanium and treated with vacuum deposited ADLC (amorphous diamond-like carbon), the dial features a thick black coating provides the timepiece a much greater surface hardness than natural titanium. There’s this remarkable restraint when it comes to the palette of colours used, which aids in bringing out a certain sense of rugged allure. The black coating also provides more focus onto the various dials and indication zones that are strategically placed above and beyond the terrestrial globe as well. Such visually appealing design was meant to evoke the night sky, with twinkling stars in their eternal orbits as they surround the earth.
Greubel Forsey has once again succeeded in manifesting their excellent signature craftsmanship and outstanding ingenuity when it comes to their timepieces. With the GMT Black, the brand has managed to bring about a contemporary watch that caters to the modern man with above average ambitions and dreams—someone who’s not afraid to go for them as well.
Without a doubt, the Greubel Forsey GMT Black is a real gem and collector’s item for the ultimate globetrotter. And the fact that only 22 timepieces will be released worldwide makes this exquisite watch a one-of-a-kind luxury for the daring adventurer. Indeed, it is a timepiece that’s worth being strapped to the wrist of the man taking on one conquest at a time and never stopping until he has successfully navigated his way in the world.
The Greubel Forsey GMT Black currently retails at $565,000
