Girard-Perregaux Cat’s Eye Small Second

Girard-Perregaux has renewed the timeless femininity of the iconic Cat's Eye collection with an elegant dial whose perfect oval beats to the rhythm of the mechanical movements of the Fine Watchmaking Manufacture.


The unique oval layout of the Cat's Eye has, for over ten years, been the hallmark of one of the most beautiful dedications to fine watchmaking lovers. The collection is enriched by a new model featuring a mother-of-pearl dial with a sun pattern radiating from the seconds indicator. In rich matching effects, the date indicator echoes its oval design of the case, the radiance of the diamond hour markers responds to the rays of light enhancing the mother-of-pearl. A poetic ode set to the rhythm of the movement of the leaf-shaped, delicately curved hands.
The iconic oblong pink gold case is highlighted by a corolla of 62 diamonds. The slender horns emblematic of the collection magnify this elegant silhouette, enhanced with a floral-inspired crown. Behind the aesthetic refinement, mechanical excellence is underlined by the sapphire crystal case-back revealing the self-winding mechanical GP03300 calibre, developed, assembled and finished in the Manufacture's workshops.
A great Girard-Perregaux classic, it is composed of 205 components with a diameter of 25.60 mm and is only 3.20 mm thick. Its oscillating weight in 18K pink gold is decorated with a tapestry of "GP" motifs while its bridges and main plate are stretched, chamfered, circular grained and decorated with côtes de Genève. With a 46-hour power reserve for a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, it offers hour, minute, small second and date functions.
A delicate black fine alligator strap or pink gold bracelet adds the finishing touch to a watch that epitomizes the innate and resplendent grace of the modern woman.
