SIHH 2017: Girard-Perregaux - Neo-Bridges

| No comment
Presented at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie held in Geneva few weeks ago, the Neo-Bridges is defined as a retro-futurist watch by its manufacturer Girard-Perregaux.


The aesthetic approach is certainly original but still in harmony with the history of the brand founded in 1791. In fact, the Neo-Bridges picks up the architectural construction design codes cherished by Constant Girard, creator of the Esmeralda pocket watch that was honoured in 1889 by a first prize at the Paris Universal Exhibition.

The original La Esmeralda pocket watch with a tourbillon, pivoted detent and three gold bridges


The new GP08400 self-winding movement with micro-rotor forms an inseparable whole with the titanium case and, thanks to the positioning of the micro-rotor along the same axis as the barrel drum ensuring a 50-hour power reserve, it features a perfect symmetry.


The captivating architecture is reinforced by contemporary finishing including sandblasting, NAC treatment of the mainplate, and a PVD coating on the curved bridges.


At 6 o’clock, the large 10.15 mm-diameter variable-inertia balance wheel oscillates at a frequency of 3 Hertz (21,600 vibrations per hour).

Water-resistant to 30 metres / 100 feet, the titanium case, fitted with a box sapphire crystal, measures 45 mm in diameter and 12.17 mm thick with alternately polished and satin-brushed finishing.



Fitted with a black alligator leather strap secured by a titanium triple folding clasp, the Girard-Perregaux Neo-Bridges has a price of Swiss Francs 24,400. girard-perregaux.com
