Girard-Perregaux - The Cat’s Eye in wonderland

Girard-Perregaux The Cat’s Eye in wonderland

Once upon a time, there was a watch... An enchanting high jewellery interpretation, developed in keeping with the finest watchmaking traditions.

Between heaven and earth

The dark blue aventurine dial amaze stems from the depth and intensity of its colour, lit up only by a shower of gold spangles. A fringe of multi-sized diamonds frames the crown, accentuating the legendary shape of this collection: a circle nested in an oval, the very embodiment of absolute, deeply appealing femininity. Pushing the boundaries of optical illusion, the bezel is set with a ring of imposing diamonds that spill over onto the lugs. They give a sense of volume to this model, creating an alternately raised and hollowed profile that begs to be caressed, forming a precious landscape around the sky portrayed on the dial. The stones are held by prongs that ensure their stability while also flaunting each and every facet. The light effects are magnified.

A benevolent complication

The Day/Night complication performs a complete rotation in 24 hours. It has been treated to several finishing operations, vividly reflecting the concern for details nurtured by Girard-Perregaux. Its figurative depiction of the day and night is imbued with a sense of refinement: a generous, shining sun on one side; and a dainty moon on the other, alternately appearing or hiding beneath a half-circle of diamonds as the hours go by. This astronomical complication requires no independent adjustment, as the Manufacture has chosen to synchronise it with the hours and minutes.

Inner strength

This High Jewellery model is driven by a mechanical self-winding GP330-00900 movement, designed, developed and produced by Manufacture Girard-Perregaux in accordance with the finest Swiss watchmaking traditions. This 218-part movement with its 46-hour power reserve is also distinguished by its splendid finishing. The bridges and the mainplate are straight-grained on the sides and on the rounded parts of the ridges. They are then chamfered, circular-grained and adorned with a Côtes de Genève pattern, while the gold oscillating weight is graced with a “GP” tapestry motif. The transparent case-back provides a chance to admire the meticulous craftsmanship that enhances the power of this model.
