NY — July 5, 2017
Cellini Jewelers and Greubel Forsey are presenting an exhibition that illustrates the celebrated Swiss atelier’s evolution since its 2004 debut. Open to the public from July 10 to 24, the “20 Calibres Retrospective Exhibition” will be held in Cellini’s boutique at 509 Madison Avenue. This special engagement offers collectors a rare opportunity to experience Greubel Forsey timepieces firsthand. The featured pieces spotlight a number of the company’s greatest achievements and span its entire collection, from the extraordinary Grande Sonnerie unveiled earlier this year to the Double Tourbillon 30° — the first calibre the brand ever created.
Highlights of the upcoming exhibition include:
• The Double Tourbillon 30° Technique Sapphire, which features a case carved from a single piece of sapphire crystal. Greubel Forsey will only produce eight of these timepieces and the one on display is among the last in the limited-edition series.
• The Double Balancier is one of the most technically advanced non-tourbillon pieces the brand offers. Guests will see the one-of-a-kind, blue-dial version that Greubel Forsey made exclusively for Cellini.
• The QP à Équation’s remarkable list of functions includes a tourbillon that’s set at a 25° angle and rotates once every 24 seconds, as well as a bi-directional perpetual calendar, equation of time, and indications for seasons, solstices and equinoxes.
Cellini’s NYC boutique is open Monday to Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
