Enjoy Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 Tourbillon with Three Gold Bridges Watch

Sep 27, 2011
With the presentation of its new Vintage 1945 Tourbillon with Three Gold Bridges watch, the house of Girard-Perregaux remains true to its reputation of offering the best.


Influenced by a timepiece made in Art Deco style in 1945, the new Girard-Perregaux watch has been redesigned and brought into a contemporary context by the masters within the manufacture. The companys brainchild is interpreted in a white gold case, with the dimensions of 36.10 mm x 35.25 mm. It is issued in a limited edition of 50 individually numbered pieces.

The watch face is covered by a glare-proofed sapphire crystal. The same glass is used for the case-back, secured by four screws. The water-resistance of the model is assured down to 30 meters.

Ticking inside the new Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 Tourbillon with Three Gold Bridges watch is the brands proprietary automatic 9600C movement with platinum micro-rotor, mounted on the barrel arbor. It is composed of 257 individual parts, including 31 jewels.

The main assets of the caliber are its rhodium-plated skeleton bridges, which demonstrate their modern geometry. First hollowed and then thoroughly hand-polished, they demanded 7 days for the perfect finish to be created.

Just as well, the mechanism incorporates a variable inertia balance wheel with gold regulating screws and a rhodium-finished plate with hand-polished beveling. It is also guilloched above and circular-grained below.

Linked to the movement is also a tourbillon. It consists of 72 parts, which are skillfully arranged within the diameter of 12 millimeters. The heart of the model beats to the rhythm of 21,600 vibrations per hour and supplies a 48-hour power reserve.

The mesmerizing dial indicates central hours and minutes. The small seconds are displayed on the tourbillon mechanism.

A black hand-sewn alligator leather strap, closed with a white gold folding clasp, completes the features of the new Girard-Perregaux watch.
