The Tri-Axial tourbillon Planetarium timepiece by Girard-Perregaux houses a sophisticated tourbillon complication and two captivating, delicately miniature-painted complications: a rotating globe with day/night indication and a precision moon-phase display. The watches in this Fine Watchmaking bear the technical and aesthetic signature of the Swiss Manufacture. A complex structure revealed by an iconic and luminous design.
The three-dimensional Planetarium watch combines a Tri-Axial tourbillon, a globe performing one full turn in 24 hours and an astronomical moon phase. Cleverly combining technical expertise, iconic design and traditional craftsmanship, it distils the essence of the Girard-Perregaux DNA: arrow-shaped gold bridges, a lyre-shaped tourbillon carriage, sapphire domes and a side opening enabling light to flood into this superbly refined mechanism.
Equipped with hand-winding Manufacture GP09310-0001 calibre ensuring a 70-hour power reserve, the Planetarium with Tri-Axial tourbillon drives the hours, minutes, moon-phase and day/night functions. These indications are displayed on a guilloché silver-toned dial bearing a motif evoking Earth’s meridians and punctuated by pink gold numerals and hour-markers swept over by dauphine-type hands. This movement visible through the transparent screw-down back is adorned with meticulous hand-crafted finishing and the iconic signature characteristics of the Maison: arrow-shaped bridges, along with the engraved eagle symbol holding the brand insignia. The rear baseplate is sandblasted and black PVD-treated to accentuate the ‘night’ side of the day/night indicator, thus making a striking contrast with the silver-toned guilloché dial. The Planetarium Tri-Axial watch is fitted with a black alligator leather strap with a pink gold folding clasp.
