  • Catalogue Essay

    The iconic “three gold bridges” movement has become over time virtually synonymous with avant-garde technical refinement and “out-of-the-box” looks of Girard-Perregaux.

    In the present instance, the mechanical boundaries of the calibre are pushed even further thanks to the addition of a 1-minute turbillon and a rotor for automatic winding. In a stroke of genius, the rotor is superimposed to the mainspring barrel thus achieve perfect balance between the tourbillon at 6 o’clock and the mainspring/rotor combination at 12.

    Offered in practically unused condition and complete of all its original accessories, the present watch is as attractive and complicated as it is collectible.

  • 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.
