Greubel Forsey Art Piece 1
Greubel Foresy - the brand that is known by watch connoisseurs as the pinnacle of craftsmanship and excellence. The Art Piece 1 is not only a bold representation of the values of the Greubel Forsey brand but a piece which exemplifies why it is so respected by watch community around the world. 
The Art Piece 1 is an artistic co-creation by Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey with Willard Wigan. This unique piece features a nano-sculpture by Willard Wigan who is famous in the art world for being able to make sculptures so small that they sit on the heads of pins and inside the eyes of needles. Even more intriguing is how he crafts these tiny objects - Willard first enters into a meditative state in which his heartbeat is slowed, allowing him to reduce hand tremors between heart beats. He then uses tools like diamond shards and hairs from house flies and shapes them under a microscope. It is beyond our comprehension how one of these sculptures sits inside the Art Piece 1.
Even crazier is that along with Wigan's sculpture is one of Greubel Forsey's signature 30 degree double tourbillons. The interior cage, which is the one tilted at 30 degrees, rotates once per minute, while the outer cage sits parallel with the dial and completes a rotation every four minutes.
