Girard Perregaux Cat’s Eye Tourbillon with Gold Bridge

The highly coveted Cat’s Eye Tourbillon with Gold Bridge by Swiss luxury watch maker Girard Perregaux is a perfect fusion of its expertise in both watchmaking and jewellery. Its feminine curves sparkle with 308 beautifully set diamonds from the bezel to the lugs and, in an ultimate touch of refinement, on the crown.Its distinctive oval case in white gold frames a superb dial of meticulously decorated white mother-of-pearl.

Gently rounded leaf-shaped hands float elegantly above a floral motif engraved in relief on the mother-of-pearl, the two elements coming together as one. Hours and minutes progress gracefully under a sapphire crystal signed with a delicate transfer of the GP logo.

At 6 o’clock, the iconic Girard-Perregaux Tourbillon, an embodiment of the company’s expertise, reigns majestically under a Gold Bridge delicately carved with a floral motif that echoes the dial. It precisely regulates the running of the manually wound calibre GP09700-0012.

Containing 174 parts decorated, adjusted and assembled by hand, its perfect finishing is another sign of the exacting standards of Girard-Perregaux, a pioneer in producing beautiful mechanical watches for women.

The Cat’s Eye Tourbillon with Gold Bridge is available on a deep black and red alligator with a gold folding buckle set with diamonds.
