Girard Perregaux Vintage 1945 Tourbillion

        Girad Perregaux is a world famous watch making house. The Swiss firm has a history which boasts of elegant watches being rolled out. This designer watch company was set up in the year 1792, and more than 200 years since its inception, the company still continues to be one of the leaders in horological research and development. Girad Perregaux has a history of making movements that are accurate to the core, and has to its credits more than 1000 Observatory Bulletins de Marche and many others awards. The company is located in La Chaux-de-Fonds, in Switzerland.
The most famous creation of the Girad Perregaux watch manufacturing house has been the 1945 Vintage Tourbillion collection, which dates back to the 1800’s.

        This iconic collection from this house which is the front runner of watch technology has been featured over the years in many famous watch magazines and websites, and has bagged a large number of awards. A tourbillion is a device, invented in 1795, that is used to counter the effect of gravity on the balance wheel of the watch, by mounting it on the balance wheel itself. Though many advanced techniques have now been developed, many of the luxurious watches, like this one, feature a tourbillion as a novelty. The recent developments in this watch have led to the creation of an even more beautiful and elegant time piece – the Girad Perregaux Vintage 1945 Tourbillion with Three Gold Bridges.

        This new model of the watch is made up as a sphere, and has been rendered with utmost perfection. The elegance and luxury this watch possess can only be seen and experienced; rather it would be an injustice to the brilliant design of the watch if one tried to put it in words. The most attractive feature of this watch is the three bridges, which have an enchanting geometry. The bridges were hollowed, and then were polished by hand to ensure the finest quality of the material. It is amazing to know that the tourbillion has 72 components, all of which are assembled in a circular area with a diameter of one centimeter!

        The case of the Girad Perregaux Vintage 1945 Tourbillion with three gold bridges features a rectangular profile. This rectangular case has been made of pink gold, which gives it sheen like none other. The case, which measures 28.6mm × 30.30mm in diameter, has been given a little bank, which makes it merge seamlessly with the wrist. The crown of the watch is prominent, and the watch is resistant to water to a depth of 30 meters.

        As all the Girad Perregaux watches, this one also features a self winding caliber made by the Girad Perregaux factories. The exclusivity of this watch can be judged from the fact that Girad Perregaux has patented the platinum micro motor mechanism, on which this watch is based. The watch has reserve power for 48 hours. Girad Perregaux has decided to roll out only 50 pieces of the Girad Perregaux Vintage 1945 Tourbillion, because meticulous effort and a lot of hard work goes into creating this watch engineering marvel. The watch comes with an alligator strap made of black leather. It is a must buy for the connoisseurs of watches, and must have in the collections.
