The Girard-Perregaux’s saga continues with two new tourbillon models dedicated to women!
The three bridges tourbillon was developed in the 1860s by Constant Girard the husband of Marie Perregaux. These three bridges were originally straight, parallel and in nickel metal. They have been redesigned as arrows and covered with gold in the late 1870s. This invention received the ultimate award in 1887: a gold medal at the Universal Exhibition in Paris. This watch, subsequently named “Esmeralda” is a historical gem that we can now admire at the Girard-Perregaux Museum.
The manufacture Girard-Perregaux regularly offers dedicated pieces to women as the Tourbillon with three gold bridges creations that will be launched by the end of 2013. On a technical point of view, the watch is driven by an automatic movement with micro-rotor patented platinum and dating from 1999. In aesthetic terms, the new model features three decks of arrow type with soft edges, an exclusive floral decoration and a mother-of-pearl dial covered with sparkling diamonds. Both models rose gold are distinguished by the colors of their dials and bracelets: a mother of pearl dial with blue strap for the first dial, a red and gold bracelet for the other dial. In short, both timepieces will shine with elegance on your wrist!
