Greubel Forsey’s Balancier 3 strikes a chord in the haute horlogerie world
In the world of high-end watches where precision and craftsmanship blend, Greubel Forsey has long been synonymous with excellent timepieces. Now, the renowned Atelier introduces Balancier 3, a groundbreaking addition to the Convexe range that strikes the perfect balance between affordability and the uncompromising handcrafted finishing that defines Greubel Forsey's heritage.
At the heart of the Balancier 3's appeal lies its unique design, marked by three prominent bridges. The first houses the barrel, the second supports the large balance wheel, and the third, perhaps the most fascinating, supports the seconds counter and elegantly carries the hour and minute hands. Each bridge is a canvas for Greubel Forsey’s signature hand-finished finishes – a testament to the brand’s commitment to meticulous craftsmanship. luxury replica Watches
The iconic case of the Convex series adopts a more fashionable shape in the Balancier 3, and the lugs avoid the screws, presenting a simpler aesthetic.

Attention to ergonomic details makes the Balancier 3 stand out, offering not only advanced technology but also superior wearing comfort.

The design invites enthusiasts to marvel at the complexity of the movement, from the source of energy to the escapement, barrel and majestic balance wheel.

Two fast-rotating barrels in series, decorated with a unique rotating graphic design, provide a three-day chronograph power reserve – a testament to the prowess of Greubel Forsey’s watchmaking expertise. The large balance wheel, aptly named “Balancier”, has a huge diameter and is elegantly balanced with gold chronograph screws, ensuring accuracy to Greubel Forsey’s exacting standards.
The finishing of the Balancier 3 is a horological masterpiece. This is exemplified by the wide bridges supporting the hour and minute hands, featuring a complex three-dimensional skeleton design with sharp internal corners. This meticulous geometry is complemented by hand-polished convex bridges that echo the curvature of the case and demonstrate Greubel Forsey’s unwavering commitment to perfection.
