Girard-Perregaux Cat’s Eye Steel

The Girard-Perregaux Cat’s Eye collection, one of the most loyal ambassadors of ladies’ watches, now enters the scene in a redesigned steel case with an elegant dial that is totally feminine.

First of all, its modern silhouette is both subtle and generous. The horns stretch around the diameter that has been enlarged to satisfy today’s preference, while the bezel changes shape, ensuring that its diamonds catch the light and the eye. Encircled by precious stones, the dial is line of poetry, taking the woman as inspiration. The sparkling colors of champagne or silver present their sun-brushed finish. A numeral at 12 is accompanied by applied, elongated teardrop markers that bring real fluidity to the hour circle. Facing the small seconds counter, the date at 3 o’clock appears in a window that echoes the shape of the case.  Lastly, the power reserve is indicated in a constellation of stars.

Its automatic movement with an oscillating weight can be seen through the Cat’s Eye’s sapphire crystal case back. Embellished with a tapestry of the GP initials, it swings proudly above a plate and bridges that are decorated with Côtes de Genève, a finish traditionally associated with fine watchmaking. A delicate bracelet adds the final touch to this ladies’ timepiece.
