The Quasar Azure is a brilliantly bold expression of the company’s technical mastery, contemporary design and rich heritage. Sapphire is extremely difficult to craft because of its hardness. The case is formed, coloured, milled and polished by Girard-Perregaux artisans through a protracted process, taking over 200 hours. Set within the azure blue case, the tourbillon seemingly floats. The wearer is also indulged with aerial views of the Neo Bridges, a Girard-Perregaux signature inspired by architectural structures.
