Girard-Perregaux X BUCHERER BLUEHISTORICAL CRAFTSMANSHIP AND MODERN DESIGN
A HISTORICAL WATCH MOVEMENT
Girard-Perregaux revives history with its modern translation of tradition. The Tourbillon with Three Bridges is considered the world’s oldest watch movement still in production, the epitome of Girard-Perregaux virtuosity. The structure of the watch movement that appears to be suspended within the case has remained unchanged since the 1860s - earning it the name “Flying Bridges”.
BENEFITS THAT LIE BENEATH THE BARREL
The iconic Bridges collection embodies craftsmanship and design, realised as a complex interplay that makes the invisible visible. By paring back the movement, the main plate seems to disappear within the case. The automatic movement itself features a micro-rotor beneath the barrel, granting the benefits of an improved power reserve of a minimum 60 hours, optimal winding, as well as an unobstructed view of the movement.
FROM TRADITIONAL TO MODERN BRIDGE DESIGN
Girard-Perregaux’s Three Flying Bridges present a modern take on tradition. The design of the Bridges, which started out as an arrow-ended shape, has evolved into a contemporary Neo-shape, inspired by the architectural marvels of the world’s metropoles. For the collaboration with Bucherer, Girard-Perregaux specifically realised the barrel and Bridges of the exclusive 18 timepieces in blue tones.
