If there would be a competition for the finest and most complex travel watch, the GMT Earth from Greubel Forsey will for sure be a top contender to win.

The Horological Machine No.10, or HM10 in short, is inspired by a bulldog and comes with ‘eyes’ that tell the time and a jaw that serves as a power reserve indicator.
