Although complicated watches can sometimes appear daunting, their aesthetic is unparalleled by standard designs. Revealed this year at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie in Geneva, the Double Tourbillon 30ยบ Technique watch offers itself as a peek into the future of chronograph design.

A simple crocodile embossed leather band balances its incredibly complicated face. It calls attention to detail showcasing the inner workings and takes the skill of the craftsman to a new level. Mechanics become the art in this watch, enabling you to follow every visible movement it makes.

Greubel Forsey has delivered some of the most masterful watches every made, featuring extreme time machines with components made entirely in-house, and annual production is limited to fewer than 100 time pieces for the entire company.
