Girard-Perregaux Cat’s Eye Aventurine

Girard-Perregaux presents a new Cat’s Eye model in pink gold featuring dark glittering color dial in aventurine.  The beauty of this “Day & Night” model stylishly combines the curves of the Cat’s Eye case with a sophisticated manufactured movement. The complication is displayed in a feminine way: a shiny sun and a smooth moon appear on the 22 cts pink gold disc that completes a rotation in 24 hours.
Synchronized with the hours and minutes hands, the complication is very easy to use as it doesn’t need to be set. Its emblematic oval case – the signature feature of the collection – is crafted out of pink gold, while its bezel sparkles with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds. Its lugs, curved delicately inwards, harmoniously extend the proportions of the case, providing the wrist with a perfect fit to ensure maximum comfort for the wearer. Its crown, carefully chiseled into the form of a flower, emphasizes even further this model’s ultra-feminine elegance. Time is measured out by delicate leaf-shaped hands for the hours and minutes, and by a baton-type hand for the seconds. Their path is protected by a slightly domed sapphire crystal.
The mechanical, self-winding movement GP03300-0090, exclusive to this collection, is made up of 218 different components. Mainplate and bridges are straight-grained, chamfered, circular-grained and decorated with a ‘Côtes de Genève‘motif and the Gold oscillating weight adorned with a “GP” tapestry pattern. The Cat’s Eye Aventurine Day & Night watch is available with a midnight-blue alligator leather strap that completes the look of this very dressy timepiece.
The Cat’s Eye line created in 2004 was so innovative that it has won several distinctions. It proves that feminine shapes lend themselves wonderfully to complicated watches.
