Girard-Perregaux Bi-Axial Tourbillon in DLC Titanium

September 29, 2012

At week-before-last’s NYC Timecrafters show, the folks from Girard-Perregaux (based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland) lifted the lid on a spectacular piece of haute horlogerie — a black DLC-finished titanium bi-axial tourbillon, limited to just 8 pieces. The original Girard-Perregaux Bi-Axial Tourbillon (I believe) debuted in 2008 in rose gold case with rose gold bridges; it was subsequently released in a white gold case with rose gold bridges. Both are elegant pieces, but nothing quite like this, for sure. An “all black” watch with such class! A great balance of tradition (respecting the traditional and iconic “tourbillon with three gold bridges”) and a bit of the avant-garde (black titanium DLC case). What a beauty… more looks below.
