Limited edition of 10 pieces...
One of the best watches in the industry, the Tri-Axial Tourbillon has just been released in white gold. The new watch is beautiful.
The watch case is still unchanged with the exception of the material. Massive with a diameter of 48mm. The dial, however, has been redesigned. The color has been changed to coordinate with the case, although it has spaces in the empty areas that help darken it slightly. It also adds slightly more excitement to a dial that might otherwise look like a dinner plate. The small dial at 2 o'clock has a sunburst finish. The hands and 3, 6, 9, and 12 markers are all red gold and match the Girard Perregaux logo nicely.
The watch also has a power reserve indicator, with the scale printed on a transparent material (at the ~$500,000 price point I would think that these would be made of sapphire, but I can't say for sure). The movement is the GP09300-0002, with 34 jewels, and a 60-hour power reserve. It is finished to Haute Horologie standards. It takes a watchmaker 160 hours to assemble the 317 parts of the movement. Exquisite. The watch is on Girard Perregaux's website here.
