Neo Bridges

Girard-Perregaux 2017

Men's

Neo-Bridges square

 

 

Girard-Perregaux returns to its iconic three gold

bridges with a futuristic version that lends a distinctly contemporary colour

to the watchmaker's legacy. Usually associated with a Tourbillon, this time the

Manufacture's signature bridge holds a large, variable-inertia balance wheel

whose oscillations are a sight to behold. A second bridge completes the modern

architecture of this Neo Bridges. Carrying on this impressive composition, the

micro-rotor and mainspring barrel are symmetrically positioned and take up the

top half of the titanium case. This technically assertive ensemble is brought

to the fore by a large, 45-mm case in titanium with alternating polished and

satin-brushed surfaces. The visual codes advocated by Constant Girard, maker of

the Esmeralda pocket watch that claimed a first prize at the 1889 Paris World

Fair, remain the centre of attention. More contemporary than ever…
