The Swiss high-end manufacturer, Girard-Perregaux, enriched its Cat’s Eye collection with two gorgeous ladies’ timepieces crafted from stainless steel. These exceptional new models are slightly redesigned, but they are still instantly recognizable thanks to its oval shape, as well as subtle and generous personality.
The new members to the Cat’s Eye family of watches boast slightly enlarged horns that have been stretched to satisfy contemporary preference, whilst its bezel changes the shape to ensure that diamonds catch the eye at first glance. Its adorable bezel is encrusted with 56 diamonds, weighing circa 1.08 carats.
The feminine case measures 37.95mm x 32.95mm and it is domed with anti-reflective sapphire crystals. The water-resistance of the case is assured down to 30 meters (100 feet).
The new Girard-Perregaux Cat’s Eye timepiece is powered by the in-house manufactured and assembled GP03300-0070 automatic movement which provides the usual set of functions: hour, minute, small seconds, as well as date and power-reserve indications. The precise mechanism provides no less than 46 hours of power reserve. It is built on 27 jewels and oscillates at the rapid frequency of 28,800 (4 Hz) vibrations per hour.
The impeccable movement can be admired through the sapphire crystal case back of the watch where the plate and bridges which are nicely decorated with Côtes de Genève create a stunning scene. Further, the case back is encrusted with a tapestry of the Girard-Perregaux initials.
Underneath the front sapphire glass, there is champagne or silver-colored dial with sun-brushed finishes. Arabic numeral at 12 o’clock position is accompanied by applied, elongated teardrop indices that bring real fluidity to the hour circle. A round black-on-white date window is situated at the 3 o’clock position, while the power reserve indicator is located in the lower part of the dial, at the 5 o’clock position.
For the great feel on a women’s wrist, La Chaux-de-Fonds-based watchmaker attached the new Cat’s Eye to a comfortable calfskin strap with steel folding buckle.
Girard-Perregaux offered two models of the new ladies’ timepiece. The first one with the referent number 80486D11A361–IK7A has a silver sun-brushed dial surface and white calfskin strap, while the second one with the reference 80486D11A861-IK8A matches beige (champagne-colored) dial and strap. Whichever model you choose, it will definitely add a touch of sophistication and feminine charm to your personality.
Since 2004, when the Cat’s Eye line was presented for the first time it became one of the most popular. For the last 8 years, this collection ensured its place among the modern women of the 21st century.
