La Esmeralda Tourbillon

A re-interpretation of the legend. An eternal charm.

This year, as Girard-Perregaux celebrates its 230th anniversary, the Manufacture is pleased to unveil La Esmeralda Tourbillon "A Secret" Eternity Edition, a wristwatch employing the Maison’s legendary watchmaking know-how as well as encompassing an array of artistic crafts, executed to an exceptional standard. This latest creation re-interprets the design of the legendary 1889 ‘La Esmeralda’ pocket watch and references many of its extraordinary refinements. However, it is not a facsimile of what has gone before, but a tasteful homage to Constant Girard’s prize-winning watch of yesteryear. It is perfectly in tune with the expectations of a modern-day audience but respects La Esmeralda and seeks to capture its eternal charm. La Esmeralda Tourbillon "A Secret" Eternity Edition is introduced as part of the Eternity Edition series, paying homage the eternal beauty of enamel. This contemporary Interpretation has taken use this métier d'art one step further than Its historical forebearer, extending the enamelling onto the outer case sides and lugs - all of which has been executed in-house. To the rear of the watch, the back of the blue enamelled secret cover features three horses, again inspired by the original La Esmeralda and adorned with a sunray guilloché decoration and blue grand feu enamel. The horses return, but their origin remains an enigma or, as they say at the Manufacture, ‘an equine mystery’.

三金桥横跨表盘,类似于1889年版La Esmeralda时计的设计。但是,在全新推出的表款上,GP芝柏表再一次变内藏于外露——将初款怀表底盖上雕刻的骏马向上移到了瞩目的中心位置。实际上,两匹手工雕刻的奔腾骏马分别构成了发条盒桥板和陀飞轮桥板的右端和左端。每一根桥板均经过精细的修饰工艺处理,包括凹面倒角、镜面抛光、水平“traits-tirés”纹饰的侧面以及磨光桥臂。全部三根桥板的打造需要40小时,而发条盒桥板和陀飞轮上的额外雕刻还要再花费50小时。
