ALL IN THE EYES
The whole world loves a cat (see the internet for confirmation of just how much), but Girard-Perregaux has just upped the stakes in feline adoration with an enhancement to its classic ”ladies” Tourbillon: enter the Cat’s Eye Tourbillion with Gold Bridge. The glamorous piece is set with 308 diamonds from the bezel to the lugs, with another sparkler also added to the crown; the case comes in white gold and features decoration in white mother-of-pearl. The iconic Tourbillion is of course all present and correct at 6 o’ clock, now sitting beneath a gold bridge set with a sapphire crystal, and engraved with a floral motif that echoes the dial. It contains 174 parts that are decorated, adjusted and assembled by hand, or is available on a deep black and red alligator strap, with a gold folding buckle set with diamonds. It’s enough to make anyone purr with pleasure.
