Watch manufacturer Girard-Perregaux continues to bring to light its secular savoir-faire by revealing its latest creation with the Cat’s Eye Majestic. Since its creation in 2004, the Cat’s Eye collection has won numerous prizes including the highly coveted “Watch of the year”.
Carrying on its tradition of fine horology, Girard-Perregaux revisits the iconic shape of the Cat’s Eye this year for a more audacious and dignified interpretation.
The emblematic collection available in a identifiable oval horizontal shape or an oval vertical case to embrace the famous Tourbillon with Gold Bridge, offers this year a new facet, even more contemporary with its new vertical, oval shape, set with diamonds.
Purposely feminine, its polished case, set with 60 brilliant-cut diamonds, sparkles around a mother-of-pearl dial. The dial features a sun-ray decoration for the pink gold version and an artistic guilloché dial for the steel and bicolor (steel and pink gold) versions, emphasizing the harmony of the vertical oval. The refined leaf-shaped hands indicate the passing of time on two styles of indexes; gold roman numerals (at 6 and 12 hours for the bicolor in steel and pink gold) and diamonds. The dimensions of the line assert its contemporary character with a 34.72 x 40 mm case and an 11.60 mm thickness.
The heart of this new collection beats with the mechanical manufacture movement GP03300 with automatic winding. Entirely conceived and assembled in Girard-Perregaux’s workshops, the calibre is composed of 199 components, 27 jewels, beats with 28,800 vibrations per hour and provides a 46 hour power reserve.
The mainplate and bridges of the movement are straight-grained, chamfered, and circular-grained, decorated with a “Côtes de Genève”-motif, while the oscillating weight is adorned with the GP-logo in a tapestry pattern. The movements finishings and decorations can be observed through the sapphire crystal case-back.
The Cat’s Eye Majestic is available with a pink gold, bicolor or stainless steel case. As it can be worn with a black alligator strap, stainless steel, bicolor (pink gold and steel) or pink gold bracelet, there is a style to suit every occasion.
