Balanciers / Greubel Forsey Experimental Watch Technology

The story goes that this movement — a movement that instead of a tourbillon contains two escapements, each with its own seconds display, was built as part of Greubel Forsey’s Experimental Watch Technology (EWT) department, which is essentially their high-concept group — and according to public record, it doesn’t exist. Nothing was ever communicated to the press, or to clients about this one experimental watch, unofficially dubbed the Balanciers. Until the folks from Marcus saw the movement, and they convinced GF to make them just one watch using the EWT movement. And that is what you see here, the Greubel Forsey Balanciers — via HODINKEE
