At Baselworld 2014 watch exhibition, Girard-Perregaux unveiled the new member of its signature Cat’s Eye collection. The new Cat’s Eye 10th Anniversary watch, as its name suggests, celebrates the collection’s ten year anniversary with a gorgeous dial blanketed in shimmering, metallic rays.
Girard Perregaux Cat’s Eye Anniversary Model offers a complex range of Haute Horlogerie features. It is available in two versions both offering striking pattern exploding with precious gemstones which sparkle rays of light from the 9 o’clock position. The beautuful watch dial also features a slightly domed leaf-shaped hour and minute hands.
The new ladies’ timepiece is housed in a delicate oval case which measures 35.44 x 30.44mm. Its case is crafted from white gold and incorporates an elegant bezel encrusted with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds.
The watch’s dial is shielded with a sapphire crystal, whereas the open case back shows a special “10th Anniversary” engraving. The case back also shows the in-house manufactured and assembled caliber GP03300 mechanical movement and its specially designed pink gold oscillating weight which is engraved with the letters “GP” to create a tapestry-like decor with pearlescent bridges and main-plate. The self-winding movement features hour and minute functions and it is capable to save enough power to keep the watch ticking for at least 46 hours. The impeccable caliber GP03300 oscillates at the rapid frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz). The watch is crafted to withstand water pressure of up to 30 meters (circa 100 feet).
As I have already mentioned, Girard-Perregaux offered two versions of the Cat’s Eye 10th Anniversary timepiece. The first model (ref. number 80489D53A601-CK6A) that sports a black hand-polished onyx dial and the matching black alligator leather strap boasts 73 brilliant-cut diamonds.
The other model is opaline-colored (ref. number 80489D53A602-CKHA) and it features a white mother-of-pearl backdrop that has been tinted gray. This version also boast 73 sapphires at their tips in shades ranging from bright to pastel pink. The opaline model is teamed up with garnet alligator leather strap. To keep the watch secured on a lady’s wrist there is a white gold folding buckle.
This exceptional anniversary edition is intended for women with sophisticated taste and it can be a perfect gift for a lady who pays keen interest to the delicacy of Haute Horlogerie timepieces.
