The multi-level dial of the Girard-Perregaux Tri-Axial Tourbillon has a large aperture at 9 ‘clock that shows the tourbillon’s triple regulator system at work. Traditional hours and minutes are on a silver subdial at the 1:30 position, with a clou de Paris motif and rose-gold numerals and indices. The minute numerals are white against a black flange. The skeletonized Dauphine hands are also crafted from rose gold. The arcing power reserve indicator follows a curve that ends at 6 o’clock.
The rose gold case has a beveled bezel, a rounded case center and elegantly narrowed lugs. A sapphire window is integrated into the side of the case at 9 o’clock to show the motion of the tourbillon from another angle, while the screwed exhibition caseback offers a view of the entire movement from the rear, including the satin-finished bridge engraved with the words “Tri-Axial.”
The Girard-Perregaux Tri-Axial Tourbillon will be limited to only 10 pieces; the price has yet to be announced.
