Girard Perregaux Tourbillon watch is a classic in history. Girard Perregaux now reproduces the three-gold bridge tourbillon watch, appearing in a 41 mm round case, and sees the sense of time in its elegance. The number of timepiece treasures is limited to 50 pieces.
In the 1970s, GP Girard-Perregaux decided to reproduce the legend of the Three Bridges and reinvent the classics in the history of watchmaking. At that time, the watch factory consumed 1500 hours of processing and 20 modern Sanjinqiao tourbillon pocket watches were officially launched in 1981. Since the beginning, the brand has launched a three-gold bridge tourbillon watch every year, giving the classic a more modern temperament.
The three plywood shapes of this three-gold bridge tourbillon are the same as the old ancestral structure that won the first prize of the Neuchâtel Observatory in 1860. The hollow splint has a contemporary aesthetic feature. The golden bridge plywood is hollow and polished, and the craftsmanship is flawless. It takes seven days for the craftsman to achieve this perfect effect. The tourbillon is composed of 72 parts, with a diameter of about 1 cm and a weight of only 0.3 grams. It is similar to a goose feather, showing its delicate details. The miniature platinum winding oscillating device is placed under the spring barrel, giving the movement a unique shape. The structure is unreserved, which is also one of the patented technologies of the watch factory.
This new work continues a glorious history of Girard-Perregaux in the mid-19th century: the founder of the watch factory, Constant Girard, spent many years studying the tourbillon escapement technology, and in 1860 created a three-bridge pocket watch with a barrel The central gear and tourbillon system are arranged in a straight line. This work won the first prize from the Neuchatel Observatory in Switzerland. By 1884, he applied to the US Copyright Office for three patents on the design of arrow-shaped splint movements, and established the concept of the coexistence of technical functions and artistic values of the three-bridge tourbillon movement. This masterpiece of the world won the gold medal of the Paris World Exposition in 1889. The Golden Bridge Tourbillon has a long history.
