That isn't to say the watches are not impressive, but Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey need to spruce it up a bit. How about hiring a good designer that can frame your complications really well? You guys obviously know what you are doing in the mechanical department, but your watches end up look incomplete. They look like prototypes to me.
Above you'll see their newest watch, the Invention Piece No. 3. The difference here is the use of a 24 hour dial. Meaning, instead of being a 12 hour dial, it shows all 24 hours. Nice, unless you live in America and are not in the military. You also get a small subsidiary seconds dial, and a power reserve indicator. The emphasis is on the tourbillon of course, which is inclined and spins once each 24 seconds. The movement is the manually wound GF 01n, and the 43mm wide gold watch is part of a limited edition of just 33 pieces. Nice, but just not exciting any longer for me.
