Greubel Forsey Watch Makers Wins 2009 Gaïa Prize
Last year's winner of the Gaïa Prize was Swatch Group Chairman Nicolas Hayek. To be placed in the same category as Mr. Hayek is likely a great honor for Greubel Forsey founders Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey. The award was given to them due to their craft of fine, traditionally made and crafted Swiss watches. Greubel Forsey watches are highly limited in production and in the several hundred thousand dollars each. The image above was taken by me of two Greubel Forsey watches (Tourbillon 24 Seconds and the Double Tourbillon pieces) at the Greubel Forsey dealer shop Chatel.
