GIRARD-PERREGAUX
NEO-TOURBILLON WITH THREE BRIDGES
These gravity-defying regulating mechanisms
In a radical reinterpretation of its iconic three-bridge
tourbillon, Girard-Perregaux redesigns the movement,
reshapes the crystal and reinforces its strength as an innovator. The reshaped and skeletonized bridges are crafted of PVD-treated titanium. The blackened balance and
escapement are held in a lyre-shaped titanium tourbillon
cage at 6. A white gold micro-rotor is positioned directly
under the spring barrel at 12 for high efficiency. The bezelfree design of the 45-mm rose gold case opens the view on
the mechanism.
continue to fascinate us with their mesmerizing
motion as well as with their mechanical
complexity. There is no shortage of
new options for connoisseurs of this
watchmaking complication.

MANERO TOURBILLON
BREGUET
The silver dial of the Manero Tourbillon opens at 6 to reveal the
delicate mechanism that is one of the highest expressions of
the watchmaker’s art. The accuracy-enhancing tourbillon is
complemented by this watch’s 70-hour power reserve, indicated on the dial at 9, date indication at the periphery of the
dial and a 24-hour subdial. The manual-winding Caliber CFB
T1001 can be appreciated through the sapphire crystal caseback. Only 188 examples of this 41.8-mm rose gold timepiece
will be offered.
CLASSIQUE TOURBILLON QUANTIÈME PERPÉTUEL, REF. 3797BR
Breguet’s newest perpetual calendar model presents an intuitive display of multiple
indications. Hours and minutes are positioned in the foreground with day, date and
month displays arrayed around them on an intricately guillochéd dial. A one-minute
tourbillon, held by a delicately chamfered bridge, takes pride of place at 6, surmounted by a triple seconds hand. Hands are blued steel, and a blued sun at the center of
the months subdial at 3 indicates the leap year cycle. The 41-mm rose gold case has
fluted sides, welded lugs and a sapphire caseback, revealing Caliber 558QP2.

BLANCPAIN
VILLERET TOURBILLON VOLANT
UNE MINUTE 12 JOURS
Improving upon its Caliber 25 tourbillon movement
with eight-day power reserve, Blancpain presents the
new Caliber 242 with flying tourbillon and 12-day power
reserve. Comprising 243 parts, it is equipped with a silicon balance spring and pallet-fork horns that are resistant to
magnetic fields. The self-winding movement is housed in a 42mm platinum case to create the numbered limited edition Villeret
Tourbillon Volant Une Minute 12 Jours. The grand feu enamel dial
reveals the tourbillon at 12, and an alligator strap with triple-blade
folding clasp completes the piece.

LOUIS MOINET
ASTROLABE TOURBILLON
Inspired by a classical navigating and time-telling instrument in use since
ancient times, the Astrolabe Tourbillon replicates elements of the 14thcentury Al Sarraj astrolabe, now in the collection of the Benaki Museum in
Athens. The watch’s one-minute tourbillon movement is housed in a 47-mm
white gold case comprising 59 parts. The exhibition back reveals the spring
systems of the winding and setting mechanism, which radiate from the center
of the decorated movement. Production is limited to 12 examples, each presented with a handcrafted astrolabe by Swiss craftsman Martin Brunold.
