Within the Cat’s Eye collection, exclusively dedicated to women, Girard-Perregaux has created two new timepieces graced with complementary Day/Night complications.
These two new Cat’s Eye models feature a day/night indicator that reveals the lotus at dawn to represent the day and the evening-blooming flower, the Arabian Jasmine, to indicate the night.
Whether solitary like the lotus or in clusters like the Arabian jasmine, flowers are a universal embodiment of delicacy. Above and beyond their apparent fragility, they convey the power of symbolism: the pristine purity of the lotus emerging from the waters of a dark pond; or the voluptuous charm evoked by the bewitching fragrance of jasmine. The Cat’s Eye Lotus has a mother-of-pearl dial and a guilloché rim, while the Cat’s Eye Arabian Jasmin model has an aventurine and diamond dial.
The case of the Cat’s Eye provides a setting for these two specifically chosen flowers. With its oval shape and balanced proportions, it embraces the shape of the wrist, as do the curved lugs and domed crystal. The Cat’s Eye Lotus version comes in a pink gold case with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds on the bezel and 365 brilliant-cut diamonds on the dial. It is fitted with a blue alligator strap and a folding buckle. The Cat’s Eye Arabian Jasmin model is housed in a stainless steel case with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds on the bezel and is fitted with a silvery-grey satin-effect calfskin strap.
These two creations are powered by Girard-Perregaux’s in-house GP03300 automatic movement with a 46-hour power reserve. Wih its 218 components and hand-crafted finishing: Côtes de Genève, circular graining, bevelling, blued steel and engraving. The open back of the two models provides an admirable view of this meticulous craftsmanship. Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
