Girard-Perregaux Bi-axial Tourbillon

        Girard-Perregaux is an elite Swiss watch-making brand, that emerges over 2 centuries ago, in 1791 and never ceased to bring to life the traditions and life-guiding principles of many generations of master watchmakers, creating ever time around amazing timepieces defined by technical sophistication and sublime aesthetical expression.

        Characterized by high-class refinement and elegance masterfully combined with a highly contemporary design, the new Girard-Perregaux Bi-axial Tourbillon, reveals an amazing mechanical complexity, unique to this highly innovative timepiece- the Bi-axial Tourbillon, a Girard-Perregaux developed horological complication, which features two concentric cages which enable the regulating mechanism to perform, extremely complex, multi-dimensional rotations.


        This fascinating mechanical novelty is wonderfully revealed through a dial aperture positioned at 6 o’clock, and comprises an inner cage which holds the balance, escapement and balance-spring, and which executes a full rotation, in 45 seconds, while the external cage performs a complete revolution, around a 2nd axis, in 1 minute and 15 seconds, therefore the Bi-axial Tourbillon realizes a spectacular full revolution in exactly 3 minutes and 45 seconds.


        A horological masterpiece, Girard-Perregaux Bi-axial Tourbillon, unfurls a breath-taking, dance of alternating positions, conferring, at the same time, a supreme timekeeping accuracy. And, the inquiring eye of a true watch connoisseur will surely be seduced by the delicate dance of its movement, which can be furthermore admired through a sapphire crystal case back. Another remarkable feature of this sophisticated wristwatch is that the total weight of the two cages that is just 0.80 grams, and that they were manufacture from a unique combination of materials (gold, titanium and steel) which ensure the ultimate performance and balance, and moreover the beautiful mechanism comprises over 110 components, furthermore providing an uninterrupted energy flow of 72-hours power reserve.

         The new Girard-Perregaux Bi-axial Tourbillon reveals an outstanding attention to movement decoration which accurately reproduces the pattern on the barrel of a 1860’s award winning pocket watch designed by the master watchmaker, furthermore majestically completed by hand-polished bridges.

        The timepiece comes in an imposing pink gold case, measuring 45 mm in diameter, completed by a stylish black alligator leather strap, and it was manufactured in a highly exclusive edition of only 33 timepieces, and we expect that the price will also be pretty exculsive.
