The first timepiece borne of the recently announced partnership between Girard-Perregaux and Aston Martin has been revealed.
The Tourbillon with Three Flying Bridges – Aston Martin Edition unites the watchmaking expertise of Girard-Perregaux with Aston Martin’s unique knowledge of luxury and performance.
Both brands demonstrate a passion for refined craftsmanship and have been working together, sharing their understanding of design, materials and technology. This latest model celebrates the iconic Three Bridges pocket watch from the 19th century in a decidedly contemporary way, down to the smallest details, including the strap. Upholding Girard-Perregaux tradition, this model skilfully plays with proportions and shapes much to the delight of aesthetes.
The 44 millimetre case of the Tourbillon with Three Flying Bridges – Aston Martin Edition is formed of Grade 5 titanium, a strong, hypoallergenic alloy selected by Aston Martin for its lightweight properties. It is suffused with black DLC, bestowing the watch with a stealthy appearance. While Girard-Perregaux has a long history of making the invisible visible, in this instance it has ventured off-piste, creating a watch whose movement appears to levitate within the case.
The 260-part movement powering the Tourbillon with Three Flying Bridges – Aston Martin Edition seems suspended in the midair inside the 44mm titanium case. Beautiful design, exquisite craftsmanship and the finest materials. A philosophy embodied by both Aston Martin supercars and Girard-Perregaux timepieces.
A limited edition of 18 numbered pieces, Girard-Perregaux Tourbillon with Three Flying Bridges – Aston Martin Edition retails for S$196,300.
