Girard-Perregaux: Tri-Axial Tourbillon

This new timepiece confirms Girard-Perregaux as a specialist in high-precision mechanisms. As the name suggests, the tourbillon in the Tri-Axial Tourbillon rotates around three separate axes. Incorporated into the sapphire crystal of the dial, a domed sapphire lens surrounds the cage, allowing it sufficient space in which to rotate. The dial is constructed on multiple levels, with hours and minutes on a smaller, offset dial featuring a Clou de Paris design. The power-reserve indicator is positioned for pleasing visual symmetry. Limited edition of ten.
