Tomorrow, on the occasion of the International Women’s Day, Girard-Perregaux brings forth a creation more dazzling than ever, the Cat’s Eye High Jewellery.
An exceptional timepiece, an ode to the beautiful, to the precious and to the feminine that combines several artistic techniques for a unique expression of refinement.
Here, the famous ellipse – hallmark of the Maison’s feminine collection – becomes a scintillating work of art, rendered all the more sublime by diamonds and sapphires in their most precious expression.
Creating this masterpiece demanded no fewer than 316 diamonds and 94 blue sapphires. The precious and exceptional character of this timekeeper is further enhanced by the case set with 23 baguette diamonds and 54 blue sapphires that reach till the lugs, creating contours that also beckon the sense of touch.
At its centre, a sumptuously paved dial where every single one of the precious stones – 286 diamonds and 40 baguette sapphires – commanded the highest level of artisanal artistry. Once it has passed muster, each stone is individually shaped into its assigned cut.
Finally, to make this masterpiece of Fine Jewellery come alive, Girard-Perregaux inserted a self- winding movement, entirely conceived and produced at the manufacture Girard- Perregaux.
