Wining a lofty prize like the Aiguille d’Or (brilliant hand) of the Grand Prix de Geneva is truly something, particularly for a little, youthful and free brand like Greubel Forsey . In the wake of seeing the Greubel Forsey assortment during my visit last August I think the degree of completing combined with the marvelous planned tourbillons and ultra sumptuous plan are of an unparalleled level.
