Cat's eye Tourbillon with Gold Bridge REF : 99498D53V701-KK7A

Constant Girard focused on the structure of the Tourbillon and the shape of its parts. This was a revolution in the history of Haute Horlogerie, the first time a watch’s mechanism was imposed as an element of design in its own right, beyond its technical function.

Diamond-setting techniques

Remarkable craftsmanship and a technical feat: more than 10 different workshops were involved, requiring utmost dexterity and highjewellery expertise at every stage. To craft the traditional “Snow Setting” case, the gem-setter manually juxtaposes more than 1,000 brilliant-cut diamonds of various diameters (from 0.60 mm to 2.10 mm) alongside one another, to leave as little metal visible as possible. Each gem-set case requires more than 120 hours (3 weeks) of work and is unique both in terms of positioning and choice of diamonds.
