The movement itself in Greubel Forsey’s latest creation, the Double Balancier Convexe is not exactly new. But everything else about the watch is, and that is what is indeed revolutionary about the new timepiece. The look, detailing—the very mood of the watch—is reflective of a new design personality: younger, more active, and frankly, far sexier than before.
While the watch industry’s spring unveilings at Watches and Wonders had to be performed in an unsatisfying digital format, the watches themselves seemed even more impressive than what might be seen in a normal year. Perhaps the creativity that was suppressed by the pandemic finally found an outlet.
