  • Catalogue Essay

    - Constant Girard unveiled his first 'three bridge movement in 1867 with a subsequent patent in 1887, such was the revolutionary design of the movement that in 1889 it was awarded the gold medal at the Universal Exposition of Paris. Known to make the invisible visible, the movement's design purposely exposed the bridges, functional parts typically hidden from view.

    - Mixing traditional with modern, the present Tourbillon with Three Gold Bridges distinctively features arched gold bridges, adding a three-dimensional element and a whole new complication to the manufacturing process. At first glance beautifully simple and balanced, the timepiece hides the remarkable mechanical complexity of its design.

    - Cased at 40mm in diameter, the very classical case construction allows its wearer to focus unequivocally on the dial. The dauphine hands, also being of pink gold, blending seamlessly with the arched bridges and contrasting with its striped grey dial.

    - Exceptionally captivating, the present Girard Perregaux Tourbillon with Three Gold Bridges is presented in excellent condition and is further accompanied by its full set of accessories.

  • Artist Biography

    Girard Perregaux

    Swiss • 1791

    Celebrating its 225th anniversary in 2016, the company earned its fame as the first vertically integrated Swiss watchmaking company, manufacturing high-grade movements, cases and dials within its premises. Particularly noteworthy are the brand's three-gold-bridge tourbillon pocket watches built by Constant Girard beginning in 1867 — considered amongst the most beautiful movement architectures ever made. An active participant in Switzerland's observatory chronometry competitions, the brand won so many precision awards that they were excluded from competing in 1901.

    Key models include nineteenth and twentieth century pocket watches with three gold bridges, modern tourbillon wristwatches with three gold bridges, minute repeating pocket and wristwatches, as well as sport watches such as the Laureato and Sea Hawk.
