From tradition to innovation, see how copy Girard-Perregaux creates the “shape of controlling time”
GP Girard-Perregaux has always been known for its outstanding and innovative timepieces “Made in Switzerland”. The Bridges Golden Bridge series has become a classic in the watch with its unique horizontal display movement bridge. During the Geneva Watch Fair in 2020, Girard-Perregaux launched the new Free Bridge Infinity watch to pay tribute to the legendary Three Bridges watch released by Girard-Perregaux in 1867. Next, let us take a closer look at this watch. Brand new masterpiece. (Watch model: 82000-11-632-FA6A)
As early as the 1860s, Girard-Perregaux used the “Three Golden Bridges” tourbillon to transform the bridge from a purely technical element into an exposed, indispensable part of the overall aesthetics of the watch-this is the first in the watchmaking world Act of. Girard-Perregaux’s signature golden bridge pattern has not only become a unique decorative embellishment on the dial, but also tells the glorious history of Girard-Perregaux.
The new Free Bridge Infinity watch we have seen continues the classic design details of the series while adding more modern elements. The watch has a diameter of 44 mm and the case is made of DLC-coated stainless steel, which is mysterious and low-key. The hour hand bridge on the watch is made of onyx, presenting an extremely pure black texture. The sleek straight lines of the hour hand plate bridge are in sharp contrast with the rounded arc of the case.
Different from the traditional sapphire crystal glass diameter, the curvature of this Free Bridge Infinity watch mirror is larger. This large-curved arch shape requires four to five times more materials than usual; instead, it needs to be polished. To the extent that it is flawless, it needs extraordinary craftsmanship.
The watch continues the classic design of Bridges Golden Bridge series watches, adopting a perfectly symmetrical design, 6 o’clock and 12 o’clock opening design, so that the parts in the movement can be exposed. The inverted movement makes the various parts that are normally hidden, the balance wheel, the escapement and the barrel placed on top of the dial glamorous.
At six o’clock, the watch uses the unique arrow-shaped Neo Bridge new bridge, which spans the entire base of the main bridge and soars above the balance wheel. The bridge of this Free Bridge Infinity watch is made of rose gold. This is the first time the brand has used rose gold on the new bridge.
The copy men watch uses rose gold suspended hour marker rings and hollow rhodium-plated “Prince Princess” hands, and both have luminous materials, so the time can be read clearly in dark environments.
The watch is equipped with a strap that is similar in color to the case. The two ends of the strap close to the lugs are decorated with bright stitches. The stitches contrast with the color of the strap.
The watch is equipped with the GP01800-1170 self-made movement, which has been reinterpreted on the original basis and added a lot of avant-garde technologies, such as the use of silicon material for the escapement and balance wheel components. The silicon material is not easy to corrode, is not affected by temperature changes, is light in weight, and is low in sensitivity to magnetic fields, thus maintaining travel time stability. In addition, the low friction coefficient of silicon reduces wear and energy consumption. In addition, the watch adopts a back-through design, you can see that the movement is treated with Geneva corrugation, chamfering, sandblasting and snail pattern processing, and it is also equipped with an 18K rose gold oscillating weight.
It has a stunning appearance that runs through the modern and future and has an intimate style. It is absolutely unique for copy watch lovers who pursue unique personality, distinctive design features and professional watchmaking skills.
