The prestigious retailer Bucherer and Girard-Perregaux joined forces to create the Tourbillon with Three Flying Bridges Bucherer BLUE. Considered to be the world’s oldest watch movement still in production, the Tourbillon with Three Bridges is the embodiment of Girard-Perregaux mastery. The structure of the watch movement that appears to be suspended within the case has remained unchanged since the 1860s. For the collaboration with Bucherer, the luxury watchmaker specifically realized the barrel and Bridges of the exclusive 18 timepieces in blue tones.
The iconic Bridges collection exemplifies craftsmanship and design, realized as an interplay that makes the invisible visible. By paring back the movement, the main plate seems to disappear within the case. The automatic movement itself features a micro-rotor beneath the barrel and provides an improved power reserve of a minimum 60 hours, optimal winding, as well as an unobstructed view of the movement.
Girard-Perregaux’s Three Flying Bridges present a modern take on tradition. The design of the Bridges, which started out as an arrow-ended shape, has evolved into a contemporary Neo-shape, inspired by the architectural marvels of the world’s metropoles. The titanium case is fitted between two sapphire crystal glass boxes strengthening the visual effect of aerial delicacy.
This timepiece with its unique marking in blue tones on the barrel and bridges is limited to 18 exclusive pieces and is available for CHF 159’000 (around $162,000).
