The whole assembly is adorned with prominent beveling and different finishes. The tourbillon bridge, by way of example, is made from steel and given a cone polish. And under the tourbillon is a shameful PVD-coated titanium platform with a polished backdrop.Turning the watch around reveals an expansive sapphire display case back and shows off the movement in all of its glory. Finishing is a Greubel Forsey Buy Replica specialty, although a lot of the movement is hidden under large bridges, there’s still a lot to see and admire. For instance, the bridges all have a unique frosted finish and extremely pronounced polished bevels. The stones are slightly domed and are seated in gold chatons with polished countersinks. There is a great deal to admire about the movement.All in all, the Tourbillon 24 Secondes Edition Historique is a fitting farewell for Greubel Forsey’s legendary 24 Secondes Asymétrique collection. It has design elements which are unique for this version and it is wonderfully crafted and features the magnificent levels of completing that we have come to expect out of Greubel Forsey. I particularly like the bit of sapphire in the dial which features the design of the brand’s doctrine. I believe that is a really neat bit. The Greubel Forsey Tourbillon 24 Secondes Edition Historique is limited to only 11 bits in 5N crimson gold priced at $370,000 and 11 bits in platinum priced at $395,000.
