Presenting mechanical watches in sensual shapes, the Cat’s Eyecollection has been successfully winning over female customers to the now Kering-owned Girard Perregaux brand for over ten years, and this year saw the launch of a newmodel within the collection – the Cat’s Eye Celestial. The Celestial takes the already familiar oval shape of some ofthe Cat’s Eye existing models and adds a novel moon phase complication. Intriguingly,the moon phase has been allowed to take up almost the entire dial, and the case, which is crafted in pink gold and set with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds, provides a stunning frame to a guilloché handpolished white mother-of-pearl dial. This guilloché motif, along with the gem-set dropshaped hour-markers, actually help accentuate the large moon phase further. From a mechanical perspective the Celestial is also rather novel. The broad 8.9mmdiameter moon phase disc performs a full rotation in 59 days, but contrary to usual practice, the device driving the display of this complication is not linked to the arbour of the hour’s wheel, rather it is instead connected to the barrel and therefore moves smoothly without any jerking. The self-winding movement was designed, developed and crafted in house. It comprises 240-parts, has a 46-hour power reserve and is furtherdistinguished by some superb finishing, with Côtes de Genève and circular-graining adorning the mainplate, blued steel screws, as well as an oscillating weight bearing A‘GP’ tapestry-style motif. The Cat’s Eye Celestial is available with either an aligator strap (30,400 USD) or a rose gold bracelet (45,300 USD).
