This month, Girard-Perregaux has presented a fabulous Three Gold Bridges Tourbillon designed for women. This stunning timepiece has three gold bridges in dial center, much like a new fashion statement in Haute Horlogerie.
The latest Girard-Perregaux’s ‘Lady’ version of the Three Gold Bridges Tourbillon boasts a bezel and flange encrusted with more than 1.8 carats of diamonds. It is housed in a feminine 38mm serena pink gold case shielded with a slightly domed anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The case is completely hand-polished, whereas the rounded proportions are gentle, magnified by a light-reflecting mirror polish.
The sapphire crystal case back of the watch is secured with 6 screws. The case is constructed to resist water pressure of up to 30 meters (about 100 feet).
The beating heart of this watch is an exceptional Girard-Perregaux GP09600 caliber. The self-winding movement is built on 31 jewels, has a beating rate of 21,600 vibrations per hour (3 Hz) and provides no less than 48 hours of power reserve when fully charged. It features rhodium-plated circled, pearled and chamfered counterbored main-plate, “Côtes de Genève” decoration on bridges, and hand-engraved polished chamfers, as well as three-arrow Bridges: in polished red gold, mirror-polished chamfers and tops, hand-drawn sides and base.
The heart of the movement is the tourbillon with its 80 components which fits into a 10 mm diameter. This is tooled with a platinum micro-rotor lodged into the barrel’s surround. The barrel drum is encrusted with a floral pattern. This gorgeous craftsmanship involves ten different operations.
This amazing ladies’ timepiece is attached either to a glassy red or a navy blue alligator leather strap, both ending with buckles set with 18 diamonds. Whichever variant you choose, it comes with an additional black alligator strap.
The new Three Gold Bridges Tourbillon Ladies’ Watch is available in two versions. The first one with the referent number 99240D52A701-CK7A comes with the natural white mother-of-pearl and navy blue strap, while the model with the reference 99240D52A702-CKHA matches a sparkling gold toned dial and a glossy red strap.
