Cat’s Eye Tourbillon with Three Bridges

    Created by Girard-Perregaux’s finest watchmakers, the tourbillon under three gold bridges is the epitome of the brand and its expertise. The intermediate plate, fully set with 208 diamonds, sets off the purity of the three parallel bridges with an array of sparkling reflections. The barrel has been carefully hollowed out to reveal the spring. Inside Information: All of the movement’s components, right down to the smallest, are handmade, and the master watchmakers of Girard-Perregaux’s manufacture spent long hours painstakingly adjusting, polishing, and checking the 72 components of the tourbillon cage.
