Our biggest beef with smartwatches is you
have to tap them to check the time, which
is quite annoying to newer generations.
However, with the incredibly unique
Greubel Forsey Art Piece Edition 2, it’s
part of the charm.
TEXT BY BILL LINDSEY
Greubel Forsey is known for timepieces that are
sometimes more brilliant objets d’art than practical.
The Greubel Forsey Art Piece Edition 2 takes this
concept to stratospheric levels. A glance reveals
a mesmerizingly beautiful dial that allows you to
instantly assess the status of the movement’s 72-hour
power reserve, but reveals not a clue as to the actual
time of day. For that information, you must press a
button at about the 4:30 mark to open the window
that reveals a quite small, fan-shaped dial utilizing red
triangles to indicate hours and minutes. It takes a bit
of getting used to, and perhaps bifocals for the over-
40 crowd, but it’s so delightfully complex that doing so
is an adventure. If you’re simply all about knowing the
time of day, get a Casio. But if you want to track time
with a flair that few can match, the obvious choice is
this Greubel Forsey; GreubelForsey.com.
