Baselworld 2009- Greubel Forsey
Greubel Forsey is a company that produces ultra-complicated watches, in-house. Mostly tourbillons. This year I had a chance to briefly meet with one of the founders, Stephen Forsey. I asked him how he created a true manufacture, when it is so hard for some large corporations to do so. He simply said, "because there was two of us" he was referring to his business partner Robert Greubel. It makes sense. He also mentioned that he used to work at AP Renaud et Papi, the complications division of Audemars Piguet. While meeting with him I was able to view the hottest new timepiece in their collection, the Double Tourbillon Technique (pictured in first 5 slideshow photos). Take a look at it. It is really quite amazing.
