Girard-Perregaux keeps updating its famous (and light years that Joe can’t reach) the three golden bridge series of ultra-luxury formal watches. For example, the new Girard-Perregaux retro 1945 tourbillon triple golden bridge (Ref. 99880-52-001-BA6A) retains the basic layout of the earlier model. 99880-52-000-BA6A is intact, but adds a beautifully decorated dial with vertical guilloche patterns and high-tech anthracite gray NAC surface treatment.
Like this model, the dial is actually the back of its internal GP 9600-0019 automatic movement. Surprisingly, the mainspring barrel cover on the upper part of the dial has fine vertical stripes that echo the circular stripes. Compared with some “real” dials in some similarly priced watches, this motherboard It looks better.
But, of course, the main thing here is the traditional three rose gold bridges. The well-designed decorations are mainly designed for your viewing pleasure and can also improve the structural rigidity of the mechanical device. Visible through the dome-shaped, anti-glare sapphire crystal, they can not only fix the diamond-polished rose gold regatta racer in place, but also dare not put any luminous material, but also can fix the ultra-light tourbillon assembly such as the above-mentioned spring The barrel, behind which is hidden a hand-brushed platinum micro-rotor (you can also see it through the back cover, the case also has an artificial sapphire crystal). discount replica watch
Thanks to its micro-rotor layout, the movement is not only fully exposed through the sapphire crystal on the back, but also slim, with a height of no more than 3.20 mm. Although the movement is slim, it can still provide you with two full days (48 hours) of continuous operation when fully tightened.
The power reserve comes at a price: the movement’s balance wheel beats at only 21,600 vph, which may make it less accurate than competitors working at 28,800 vph. On the other hand, the slower mechanism does not consume faster than its agile competitors, does it?
Unlike many modern tourbillon watches, this model has a small dial size, only 36 mm long and 35.25 mm wide. It can be used for people with thinner wrists. These wrists are often unlucky. Many brands have made great efforts to deliberately pass it. Big watch.
The square chronograph often looks boring with its delicate case, but due to its exquisite lugs, this Vintage 1945 Tourbillon Triple Golden Bridge (Ref. 99880-52-001-BA6A) does not look so square if you look from the speaker It is more aesthetically pleasing to measure from the end of the horn to the end of the horn, and the ratio is 3:4.
When looking at a watch in such an ridiculously high price range, any attempt to estimate its “value for money” ratio seems foolish, because when you try to measure the whimsical “value,” you missed a bit: these watches It has nothing to do with value, they are more about “I don’t need to ask questions” colloquialism. At this point, this timekeeper has no peers. However, Girard-Perregaux is still very happy to provide this exquisite jewelry.
