Produced by a single watchmaker from start to finish the Greubel Forsey GMT Sport commands attention with a striking 42mm 18ct rose gold ovoid case. Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey founded their company in 2004 to pursue horological invention. With a strong focus around pushing the boundaries of the tourbillon the GMT complication was first seen in the collection in 2011.

The bezel is engraved with Greubel Forsey key terms such as; Bienfacture, Architecture and Perfection.
