Here we have yet another seductive model from the Girard-Perregaux Cat’s Eye collection, named Cat’s Eye Day & Night watch. This novelty boasts a guilloché mother-of-pearl dial nicely rounded with a gorgeous bezel which sparkles with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds.
Girard-Perregaux Cat’s Eye Day & Night timepiece (ref. 80488D52A751-CK6A) is housed in an oval case which is crafted from pink gold. The feminine case measures 35.44mm x 30.44mm and it is 11.29mm thick. The watch is shielded with sapphire crystals on both sides and it has a solid case back secured by 4 screws. As I have already mentioned, the watch has a stunning diamond-encrusted bezel. Curved lugs preserve the wrist with a perfect fit to ensure maximum comfort for the future wearer. The crown is made into the form of a flower which is a quite nice detail.
Cat’s Eye Day & Night perfectly combines magnificent aesthetic and mechanical features. The beating heart of this exquisite watch is in-house manufactured caliber GP03300-0090 self-winding mechanical movement. The impeccable mechanism is compiled on the 32 jewels, has a frequency of 28,800 oscillations per hour (4 Hz), 46-hour power reserve, and functions of hours, minutes, seconds and a day/date indicator. The movement consists of 218 different parts.
The passing of time through day to night is displayed by an intricately-crafted disc in 22-karat pink gold which boasts two alternating polished and satin-finished sections, which deliver an extra volume and realism to the sun and the moon surrounded by stars. The movement’s finishes and gold oscillating weight which is engraved with the repeated images of the brand’s logo, can be seen via the sapphire crystal case back.
Underneath the front sapphire glass lies a dazzling mother-of-pearl dial enhanced with delicate guilloché work. The guilloché dial is available either in white or gray color. It shines outward from the day and night indicator. For the hour indication, the watch uses teardrop-shaped hour markers set with diamonds. Time is measured by delicate leaf-styled hands for the hours and minutes, and by a baton-type hand for the seconds.
The newest member of the famous Cat’s Eye collection is teamed either with a black or gray alligator leather strap, ending with a pink gold folding clasp. For those who like bracelets, Girard-Perregaux also offers a variant of the new watch attached to an elegant pink gold bracelet.
