Pre-SIHH 2014: Introducing the Greubel Forsey GMT Platinum, for travelling the world in style (with specs and pricing)

Now available in platinum for the first time, the Greubel Forsey GMT combines the brand’s signature inclined tourbillon with a dual time zone and world time display, creating a travel watch for the private jet set.

With the tourbillon being Greubel Forsey’s trademark complication, the Greubel Forsey GMT is naturally fitted with one. It is equipped with a 24-second tourbillon inclined at 25°, meaning it rotates once every 24 seconds on a plane at a slight angle to the dial. Alongside the tourbillon is a sphere representing the Earth, which indicates day or night of any point on the globe. Just above the globe, at 10 o’clock, is the second time zone hand. The second time zone is set in one hour increments by the button at 10 on the case.

On the back is the world time disc, showing the time in 24 time zones, which moves in tandem with the globe on the front.

While the earlier gold versions of the GMT had grey dials, the GMT Platinum has a black dial. The case remains the same dimensions at 43.5 mm wide and 16.14 mm high.    In Singapore the Greubel Forsey GMT Platinum retails for 874,725 Singapore dollars, including 7% tax. That is equivalent to about US$688,000. And in Swiss francs the price is 545,000 before any taxes. – SJX Follow us on FacebookInstagram and Twitter for updates and news.

Introducing The Zenith El Primero 410, Reviving The Classic 70s Triple Calendar Chronograph (With Specs And Price)

Inspired by the original of 1969, the Zenith El Primero 410 is a retro-styled chronograph with triple calendar and moon phase functions, with the famed 36,000 bph chronograph calibre inside.

Zenith has leaned heavily on its past for its current collection of timepieces, and the new Zenith El Primero 410 continues that strategy. Like all the other Zenith reissues, the El Primero 410 has the same calibre as its 1969 inspiration, a testament to the longevity of Zenith’s most famous movement.

With the same movement, the functions of the remake are identical to the original – a chronograph, triple calendar (day, date and month) and moon phase. The dial is silver with a sunray brushed finish, with a blue steel chronograph seconds that matches the blue of the moon phase disc.

Though the reissue is heavily inspired by the original of 1969, retaining the same lines and form, the case is larger, at 42 mm in diameter. And of course it has the other de rigeur feature of a modern watch, a sapphire display back.

The El Primero 410 will retail for  €8100 before taxes (~US$11,100).
