La Chaux-de-Fonds (September xx, 2012) – Girard-Perregaux unveils another spectacular creation with an exclusive limited edition of its bi-axial Tourbillon. The astonishingly modern architecture of the Brand iconic movement is enhanced by a black DLC-coated titanium case and magnified by the contrast of colors and materials. The caliber designed and crafted using the most accomplished watchmaking expertise is turned into an avant-garde design statement.

A masterwork of technology, the Girard-Perregaux bi-axial Tourbillon combines two concentric cages that enable the regulating part to make multi-dimensional rotations. This complex construction compensates for rate irregularities due to the Earth's gravity. An internal cage bearing the balance wheel, balance spring and escapement completes one full turn on its axis in forty-five seconds. In addition, an external cage completes one revolution in one minute and fifteen seconds, enabling a rotation on its second axis. A full revolution is completed in three minutes and forty-five seconds. This aerial ballet offers an extraordinary spectacle, while the alternation of positions enables excellent rate precision. The sophisticated mechanism has an astounding delicacy: the two cages weigh just 0.80 grams, yet comprise a total of over one hundred and ten components.
