The Cat’s Eye collection of Girard- Perregaux celebrates its tenth anniversary with a luxury watch. This new model manages to celebrate the anniversary in a brilliant way. Girard- Perregaux has chosen the setting of Baselworld 2014 for a fitting tribute to the clock luxury Cat’s Eye and for the occasion they have developed a special model called “Anniversary”. It represents a great gift for those who would like celebrate their own anniversary in an exotic destination.
The new watch pays tribute to a collection that is beloved to many women and it has been redifined. Available in two versions, this creation is an explosion of precious stones. The Swiss manufacturer gives the customer a piece of work capable of abducting with its aura of light. To create a dynamic effect on the Cat’s Eye Anniversary, the point of origin of the rays has been moved from the center to 9 o’clock. Due to this asymmetric effect, one that is taken from the oval case, the light radiates in an irregular manner thus creating an extraordinary variety of sparks. The teardrop-shaped ends are facing outwards and the center of each shines a gem set, sometimes two provided that the room size allows that to happen. The overlap of the light rays requires special processing as we are talking about extremely delicate items.
The black version has a hand-polished onyx dial and 73 brilliant cut diamonds. In this version, opaline rays shine on a background of white pearl that has been hand-polished and dyed gray. The tips feature 73 beautiful sapphires with shades ranging from pastel pink to deep pink. These sapphires are carefully selected to create a harmonious and subtle tilting effect. In both versions the hands are feuille rounded in order to increase the volume and generous character of this elegant piece.
The typical case is elongated white gold in the Cat’s Eye collection and is enriched by 62 brilliant-cut diamonds on the bezel. It also presents an anti-reflective domed sapphire crystal. In the caseback of this special edition the line “10th Anniversary” is engraved; the bottom also reveals the refined interior of the GP03300 self-winding mechanical movement.
Designed, manufactured and assembled in a very elegant and professional way, its pink gold oscillating weight is entirely decorated with the letters “GP“. This is meant to create a decoration like a tapestry, while the bridges and the platen are pearly. This model offers the function of the hours and minutes and has 46 hours of power reserve.
