Subtle Equation

Greubel Forsey’s Signature 1 is a timepiece that is simultaneously simple and sophisticated. It took six years of research to create this subtle equation of simplicity and sophistication. The Signature 1, a timepiece featuring pure lines, is the solution.

For each of these new Signature creations, one talented watchmaker will elaborate his or her timepiece within Greubel Forsey’s universe. Drawing on their resources such as components, the watchmaker will operate following Greubel Forsey’s philosophy, and benefit from the skills and expertise specific to their watchmaking Atelier.

This framework will guarantee their characteristic standards of excellence, both in terms of technical craftsmanship and aesthetics. The watchmaker will therefore express him or herself within this structure, while enjoying a considerable amount of freedom, particularly regarding technical, architectural and decorative aspects of the timepiece. This watchmaker will co-sign the creation with Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey.

This new adventure once again testifies to Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey’s commitment to inscribe their approach of contemporary watchmaking with a project aimed at preserving the heritage of watchmaking excellence by passing on knowledge. The Signature project is also aimed at perpetuating expertise that has been passed down through generations. The project intends to further extend this desire to convey their particular vision of fine watchmaking to future generations: that of timepieces primarily produced by visionary men and women, served by excellent technology and expertise, which must be preserved.

Didier J.G. Cretin – a watchmaker and long-time team member at Greubel Forsey – is introducing this new line with a unique and original timepiece, the Signature 1. For the first time in the history of Greubel Forsey, he has created a manually wound watch with three hands, featuring an exclusively designed Greubel Forsey balance wheel and a gold dial. The hands are finished and countersunk by hand. This timepiece will be released in a unique edition of 33 pieces in gold and platinum. In addition to this, 33 steel-cased pieces are available by advance order, thereby maintaining and reaffirming the rarity of their timepieces.
