GIRARD-PERREGAUX – Cat’s Eye Water Lily

Two water lilies lie on calm shimmering water on the Cat’s Eye Water Lily’s dial. The star of the bejewelled Girard-Perregaux watch collections has been transformed into a zen garden awash with brilliant-cut diamonds (412 gems for a total of two carats) set concentrically using the so-called “à grains” technique. Two lotus flowers bloom at 5 and 9 o’ clock each with three petals in pink sapphire (0.24 carat) or emerald (0.15 carat) depending on the model. Two leaf-shape hands blossom in the heart of the piece to float over the hours and minutes. The time functions are brought to life by a self-winding mechanical movement by Girard-Perregaux which also provides a 46-hour power reserve. The GPO 3300-0101 calibre lies in the oval white gold 35.44×30.44mm case with 62 diamonds glittering on the bezel. Price: 51,900 CHF (pink sapphires) – 59,400 CHF (emeralds). Sharmila Bertin
