FrontRunners: Cage Dancer

<< Back to Robb Report, July 2008

Similar to other timepieces of its genre, the new Girard-Perregaux Bi-Axial Tourbillon (www.girard-perregaux?.com) offers balance and escapement rotation on more than one plane. The design increases accuracy while offering a captivating show in which the tourbillon cage performs a complex rotational dance. The $450,000 watch, introduced in April, also displays the balanced proportions and traditional finishing that characterize all of the company’s timepieces.
