The C Cat’s Eye Sparkle ap­pears to wel­come a world all its own within an oval-shaped ov case set with 62 bril­liant-cut di­a­monds. It com­poses a sup supremely ap­peal­ing frame, much like an 18th cen­tury paint­ings whose whos oval bor­der was a rare and sought-after or­na­ment in it­self. The ar­ti­san ar­tisa has man­u­ally pol­ished this or­ganic ma­te­rial so as to fur­ther ac­cen­tu­ate ac­cen the magic of its sub­tle colours. Among all the po­ten­tial chro­matic chrom op­tions at its dis­posal, Gi­rard-per­re­gaux has cho­sen blue for the mother-of-pearl cabo­chons, hand-painted in a del­i­cate shade rem­i­nis­cent remin of a frozen lake. A me­chan­i­cal self-wind­ing move­ment de­signed, de­sig de­vel­oped and crafted by the Man­u­fac­ture in keep­ing with the finest fin Swiss tra­di­tions pow­ers this new model. Cal­i­bre GP033000101, with its 195 com­po­nents and 46-hour power re­serve, is also dis­tin­guished dis­t­ing by its su­perb fin­ish­ing in­clud­ing Côtes de Genève strip­ing stripin and cir­cu­lar grain­ing on the main­plate, blued steel screws and an a os­cil­lat­ing weight bear­ing the “GP” Tapis­serie pat­tern.
