Recently Greubel Forsey have made two trips out to Asia, the first to a Yafiro arrange exhibition in Singapore and the second a private collectors function in Bangkok, Thailand.
Stephen Forsey was at both events with the full range of Greubel Forsey models and was able to explain to collectors, press, invited guests and the public the philosophy driving the exclusive brand and the handcraft in every timepiece.
You can view more(very colourful) photos from the tours on the Horomundi Greubel Forsey Discussion Forum.
Strong growth and the need to more space lead to the decision to construct a purpose-built manufacture and renovate an historical farm house on the edge of town.
The new manufacture will feature both best practice and state of the art environmental credentials and is expected to be ready in the first half of 2009.

Greubel Forsey has attracted the attention of the Swiss press which has resulted in three very well researched and written articles
A special edition of the Robb_Report called the '20th Annual Best of the Best' features Greubel Forsey.
Invention Piece 1 stands beside, super cars, private jets and ocean going yachts and there is a good explanation of the philosophy driving Greubel Forsey as well as quotes from both Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey.
As well as presenting the all-new Quadruple Tourbillon à Différentiel Sphérique at Baselworld 2008, Greubel Forsey dispalyed the new Tourbillon 24 Secondes Incliné with a 5N red gold case. The latter is available with either a white or gilded-black gold dial.
Also presented this year was a very exclusive platinum edition of Invention Piece 1. This very special model is limited to just 11 examples.
Yafriro will be organizing their Time & Luxury Watch Fair in Singapore from the 8th to the 18th of May.
Greubel-Forsey will be there, along with other luxury brands including BRM, Cabestan, DeLaCour, DeWitt, , Hautlence, HD 3, Jean Dunand, Parmigiani and Vincent Bérard.
There will be quick a few unique piece models presented at the fair so it will be a not to be missed opportunity for aficionados of fine watchmaking.
Greubel Forsey were very happy to welcome a large numbers of visitors, including press, retail partners, collectors and interested members of the public, who visited their booth at Baselworld 2008.
The ever increasing level of interest in their timepieces is gratifying reward for the time and effort which goes into developing and crafting them.

A fine reward for the entire Greubel Forsey team! Its third invention, the Tourbillon 24 Secondes Incliné, has just been honoured by the Special Jury Prize at the prize-giving ceremony of the 14th "Watch of the Year" awards, an annual competition organised by the Swiss "Montres Passion" magazine. Immediately recognisable by its asymmetrical case, the Tourbillon 24 Secondes Incliné is distinguished by the fast rotation of a single inclined cage an original means of enhancing the performances of a single Tourbillon.
The cage of the mechanism performs a complete turn in just 24 seconds. The prize was officially resented to Stephen Forsey on November 1st 2007, at a gala evening held by the magazine in the lounges of the Beau-Rivage Hotel in Geneva.
Baselworld 2007 is shaping up to be a vintage year for Greubel Forsey. We have exciting new models to present and a 4th new invention that we feel will make a few waves. Those of you planning to visit Baselworld 2007 are welcome to visit our (enlarged) stand in the hall of Emotion 5.1 E03.
The Double Tourbillon 30° is now available in two versions: "Vision" and "Secret". Vision is the DT30° with its exquisite tourbillons on full display through the open dial. Secret is an altogether more modest rendition of the DT30° with a full dial. While Secret hides its horological artistry from public view, its owner can always appreciate its charms descreetly through the display back.
The Invention Piece 1 is an entirely new take on the Double Tourbillon 30°; one which raises an incredibly high bar even higher. Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey created Invention Piece 1 as their way to pay homeage to the Double Tourbillon 30°. The intriguingly atypical layout of the indications, coupled with its extremely limited availability, are certain to ensure that Invention Piece 1 will be a much sought after prize for discerning collectors.
