SIHH 2018: Girard-Perregaux Releases A Few Standout Pieces

Neo Tourbillon with Three Bridges Skeleton

Crossing Bridges

At first look, the Classic Bridge seems to be an evolution of the Girard-Perregaux icon Tourbillon with Three Gold Bridges. Upon closer look though, you’ll see that it has an identity to call its own. Think of it as a scaled down timepiece in terms of complexity. Firstly, instead of three bridges, it comes with just two. Then, in place of the tourbillon is a balance wheel.

The Neo-Tourbillon collection (think of it as a sleeker take on the Tourbillon with Three Gold Bridges) also welcomes a new member, a fully skeletonised Neo-Tourbillon With Three Bridges Skeleton.

Also new on the block are pieces in the Laureato collection, which now come with a panda dial. Selected versions are available in ceramic, and some come with a skeletonised flying tourbillon. On the technical front, the Minute Repeater Tri-Axial Tourbillon comes in a titanium oversized case, along with a voluminous box-shaped crystal. It’s home to one of the louder repeaters in the market, though we think the chimes could do with a bit more finesse.
