        An eye-catching timepiece, the model blends the traditional refinement and elegance of sophisticated horological complications with a revolutionary approach to timekeeping, and with vanguard fashionable, design.

        The Vintage 1945 Jackpot Tourbillon is the first timepiece that combines the tourbillon complication with a slot machine, perfectly contained by the classy rose gold rectangular case, measuring 43 x 43.95 mm.

        The model features a sober black dial, fitted with only two Arabic numerals hour markers, the 3 and the 9, and, moreover, a connoisseur’s eye can enjoy the delicate dance of the tourbillon mechanism, majestically displayed through a dial aperture positioned at 6 o’clock, but the most fascinating feature of this timepiece is the genuine game of chance incorporated into the design of the watch’s dial at 12 o’clock position. Through a large window, there are displayed three symbols, and by pulling a special handle, located on the case’s right side, the magic game starts, rotating the three reels that randomly stop on 1 out of 5 different symbols (spades, hearts, diamonds and horseshoes, along with the emblematic “Liberty Bell”), meanwhile a gong inside the timepiece makes a plainest chime that reminds of those made in casinos by gaming machines.

        Beautifully completed by a black alligator leather strap, the new Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 Jackpot Tourbillon recreates the sheer pleasure of gambling and the magnetic attraction of casinos, as it can display 125 distinct combinations, and only one of them – the 3 bells, stands as the jackpot.
