This is a a rare watch. Not because of the manufacturer, but rather because of the complication. This watch features a tri-axial tourbillon, perhaps the rarest complication in watchmaking. These watches are extremely rare because very few companies have the resources/want to invest the time to make them. However, Girard Perregaux took the leap and landed successfully and they can now add a triple tourbillon to their collection of watches. I will get the negative out of the way, the number being made and price. We can realize that because they are so difficult to make, they will be awfully limited. Very limited, in fact with only 10 pieces available worldwide (each priced at $501,900). The watch utilizes the in-house Girard-Perregaux movement GP09300-0001 with 34 jewels and 317 parts. The movement also meets all the Haute Horologie requirements for finishing, so every piece, all 317 of them, is hand finished. For a company that just recently announced their first in-house movement, this is a huge step for them.
