Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey have been working together for nearly 20 years in a relationship founded on their shared technical creativity and quest for perfection.
In 1999 they began working on a new generation of tourbillon specifically designed to improve the timekeeping of the mechanical watch. Four years later they unveiled “Greubel Forsey” and stunned horological aficionados with their innovative Double Tourbillon 30°, a timepiece clearly demonstrating their twin goals of innovation and excellence.
Robert and Stephen continue to build on their deep traditional knowledge gained with four decades of combined experience in high-end complicated timepieces, by inventing and developing technically valid horological complications to rigorous aesthetic principles.
Values, Mission, Vision
Over the years, our means of expression has been confirmed and now embraces co-creations and partnerships: we have realised that our philosophy and interests were transcending the field of watchmaking. Against the grain, we have shied away from bowing to traditional market forces and marketing; rather, our priorities have always been an obsession for pushing the limits of creativity and craftsmanship. These are also the same qualities that we have found in certain artists, some of whom we now work with.
Greubel & Forsey
For Greubel Forsey, horology and artistic creation are inseparable. They are a symbiosis between technical and aesthetic dimensions, weaving together the two strands of our DNA and our timepieces are born of this cross-pollination.
To date, three of our six inventions have found practical applications: the Double Tourbillon 30°, the Quadruple Tourbillon and the Tourbillon 24 Secondes.
We aim to surprise again and again with our creativity, a form of perpetual motion.
