NEW GREUBEL FORSEY BALANCIER S² - DECEMBER 2021 NEWS
We are excited to introduce the new Greubel Forsey flagship model and the first timepiece of the 2022 collection – the Balancier S². The GMT Sport and the original Balancier S, already revealed a new facet of Greubel Forsey's identity. Today, they raise this highly contemporary and exciting approach to fine watchmaking to the power of 2!
The Balancier S² isolates the most powerful elements of the original Balancier S and accentuates and modernises them. Instead of soft curves and a discreet overall aesthetic, the Balancier S² is all about contrast and power. It shares the movement of its predecessor but introduces a new case, new finishing and new design codes.
Greubel Forsey chose to accentuate the contrast – and therefore the legibility – of its dial, with an intense black or grey backdrop that cuts through the balance bridge between 5 and 9 o'clock. The edges are sharp and the matt-effect handgrained finish allows the bridge and indices to stand out much more clearly. The latter have been reduced to their simplest expression, with 12 towering indices for 12 hours.
For the first time, the central double-arched titanium bridge which holds the gear train is openworked: once again, we can see the desire to lighten, purify and return to the essential. The new titanium bracelet reinforces this dynamic. It offers perfect continuity with the titanium case, exuding a robust and contemporary appeal. The Balancier S² affirms its place in the Haute Horlogerie of today and tomorrow as a timepiece that sacrifices nothing to the excellence of high-end watchmaking. Yet it’s a timepiece designed for everyday use, not one to simply be stored away in a safe.
RRP: AUD $337,000 on strap and AUD $403,000 on bracelet.
