A contemporary reinterpretation of movement architecture designed by Girard-Perregaux in the nineteenth century, the Neo-Tourbillon with Three Bridges and DLC titanium case definitively places the Manufacture in the third millennium and puts the watch mechanism on the level of kinetic art.
The Neo-Tourbillon is primarily the expression of a stylistic principle around which it is possible to compose without ever deviating from the blueprint. The new aesthetic used to magnify the ethereal mechanism plays with the graphic codes of the era to attract and maintain attention. It also uses the best that avant-garde technology and materials have to offer. The new bridge design, through its curves, emphasises the omnipotence of this dynamic as expressed in the geometric design of bridges in the watch presented in 1889 by Constant Girard-Perregaux at the Universal Exhibition in Paris, which went on to win a gold medal.
