Greubel Forsey Balancier Convex S2: two exclusive carbon fiber versions
The Greubel Forsey Balancier Convex S2 high quality men watches has been redesigned with a more compact carbon fiber case and is divided into two very limited series, with only 22 pieces produced in each series. The focus is on the technicality of the carbon fiber, the superior finish and the unprecedented 41.5mm diameter.
Carbon is a material that Greubel Forsey has studied for many years. Giving it its complex architectural shape and employing the highest level of watchmaking craftsmanship is a job that requires patience and technical mastery. Now the conditions are ripe to bring to life the new Balancier Convex S2, one of Atelier's iconic creations.
The new diameter of 41.5 mm is designed for carbon fiber. It's a radical change that's immediately visible on the wrist. This watch is more compact, lively and modern. The dark tone of the carbon fiber enhances the very compact feel of the watch, while leaving it open to showcase the movement, complications and finishes.
16 tons per square centimeter
From a technical standpoint, the challenges are enormous. Imposing complex geometries on carbon like the Greubel Forsey Balancier Convex S2 convex case is an unprecedented move in watchmaking. It requires a precise combination of temperature and pressure. Heat makes the carbon more flexible to work with; pressure gives it shape. Traditionally, 2 tons of pressure are typically required per square centimeter. Greubel Forsey’s signature convex case requires the use of 16 tons: 8 times that of a conventional case.replica luxury Watches
By adding layers of carbon, each ranging in size from 1 to 5 microns, Greubel Forsey has achieved a denser carbon case that showcases the perfect marriage of technology and aesthetics for which the Atelier manufacturer is known.
Each case is individually reinforced with an arrangement of fibres, carefully controlled by Greubel Forsey to create the perfect silhouette. Priority was given to the orientation of the carbon fibers so that they aligned with the curvature of the convex case, accentuated by hand finishing.
The case back and display sides are convex for a perfect fit on the wrist. The two converging lines at 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock give the Greubel Forsey Balancier Conveexe S2 a 3D geometry of unparalleled complexity. It offers unprecedented volume, creating a vast open space beneath the sapphire crystal at 6 o'clock. The internal 30° inclined balance wheel has been completely redesigned to accommodate the new proportions of the carbon fiber case, with ample space.Shopping replica watches
As always at Greubel Forsey, finishing is a crucial stage in the development of timepieces. For the carbon version, the new Balancier Convex S2 sticks to traditional case, lug and crown finishes. The bezel and lugs alternate between matte and grained finishes.
The crown features a bold matte finish. The engraving is noteworthy: the convex case is always embossed, as is the case in carbon fiber – paying special attention to the precision of the initials “GF”, which are flush with the center of the crown.fashion watches wholesale
Between 3 o'clock and 4 o'clock are double openwork "arch" bridges. The gear train below appears to be suspended in the void. With the application for a patent in 2019, the bridge has also become one of the aesthetic symbols of Greubel Forsey. It embodies the strong creative vision of Haute Horlogerie, and the extremely high level of finish of the titanium components (notoriously difficult to polish), with multiple sharp internal corners.
The 303-part movement provides a 72-hour chronograph power reserve and is perfectly structured, with three large, hand-decorated bridges on one side of the movement. The grained bridges and main plate harmonize perfectly with the carbon fiber case. The cover of the twin barrels is now treated in black, in keeping with the case and carbon plate. Finally, the relief on the 3D barrel cover blends seamlessly with the redesigned case.
The new Greubel Forsey Balancier Convex S2 small seconds dial is finished in blue or black and comes on a textured rubber strap with a titanium and carbon buckle. Discount replica watches
