GREUBEL FORSEY DIFFÉRENTIAL D’ÉGALITÉ

Postby koimaster » February 24th 2018, 12:08pm

Make no mistake, this is a gorgeous looking watch. But like all Greubel Forsey watches, its a love it or hate it kind of timepiece. Its for those of us who marvel and are fascinated by the mechanics of timekeeping, and wonder at the 3 dimensional landscape (which led our Chief Editor to coin the term watchscapes). We are not be able to resist falling in love with these watches. Granted they are extremely expensive, but the conceptualization, the build quality is extremely high, and only the person putting up the money to buy such a piece can decide if its worth the admission price.

I'll bet that'll be a real looker once they get the dial finished.

Like just about anything by Greubel Forsey and various other MB&Fs, Urwerks and Armin Stroms, it looks ghastly.

A lot of praise for these brands' designs comes from the fact, that they're independent manufacturers. Still, I can't really see how does the fact of them being independent matter, if what they make looks as if they had a contemporary "artist" - you know, the kind that empties the trash can right on the gallery floor, and calls that a sculpture - take a shit on the drawing board, then showed it to their watchmakers and said, "here's the design, make a watch that looks like this exceptionally expressive and meticulously excreted piece of shit, for which we've paid one mill."

Then again, it really will be tempting for the sort of client (in all likelihood it'll be one from China, the Middle East or Russia) who wants extraordinary complications and level of finishing in the most idiotic package possible.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
