Girard-Perregaux Cat’s Eye Small Seconds

Since its creation in 2004, the Cat’s Eye collection by Girard-Perregaux has featured exquisite marriages of feminine curves with precious mechanisms. Now the Swiss watch manufacture reinterprets this collection in a new face, with an elegant and beautifully balanced small second marking the time ticking by on the mother of pearl dial.

Every aspect of the Cat’s Eye collection is designed to seduce. A refined and poetic expression of the Girard-Perregaux Manufacture’s expertise, it combines the charms of a feminine watch with the merits of a self-winding mechanism. The new version of this collection remains unerringly true to the Brand’s philosophy and its quest for excellence in every detail.

Staying faithful to the Cat’s Eye’s sensual curves and oval form, its gold case houses an intricately worked dial in white or black mother of pearl, off which subtle, iridescent reflections glance. Illuminated by a halo, the date is clearly displayed in a window at 3 o’clock. The discreet small second is situated at 9 o’clock and enhanced by a radiating ray motif delicately traced on the dial. Each of the sparkling hour indexes is a precious, set stone, with numerals sculpted in gold wire cut and hand-polished before being riveted to the dial.
Continuing its long tradition, the Girard-Perregaux Manufacture has equipped this model with the GP3300, a mechanical movement renowned for its reliability and whose refined character can be appreciated through the sapphire case-back. The seductiveness of the Cat’s Eye owes much to its mechanism, which boasts an oscillating weight in pink gold delicately engraved with a motif in the form of the letters “GP”.
