Atmospheric colors

The exosphere is the outermost layer of the Earth's atmosphere. Deep black by nature, it almost merges into interplanetary space. Likewise, as if on the very frontiers of the void, blue largely dominates this revisited classic.

The Calibre GP03300

The Calibre GP03300

In keeping with its longstanding tradition, Manufacture Girard-Perregaux has equipped this model with a tried and tested mechanical movement, Calibre GP3300, whose ultimate refinement reveals no less than five different finishes. The plate and bridges are meticulously stretched, bevelled, engraved, circular-grained and adorned with Côtes de Genève. The blued steel screws and gilded engravers are revealed through its sapphire crystal back.
