The Bridges collection honours the work of Constant Girard and his decision to reimagine the role of the bridge, a design philosophy that lives on, manifest with several Girard-Perregaux models. The present-day interpretation of La Esmeralda Tourbillon “A Secret” Eternity Edition respects the design of the 1889 watch, but is worn on the wrist, subscribing to modern tastes. Presented in an 18K pink gold case, the housing has been enriched with hand-engraving and grand feu enamel. The pink gold version of La Esmeralda Tourbillon "A Secret" Eternity Edition will be offered in seven different colourways, each produced on request for a maximum of 18 pieces per colour.

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

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 secret cover features three horses, again inspired by the original La Esmeralda and adorned with a sunray guilloché decoration and grand feu enamel. The horses return, but their origin remains an enigma or, as they say at the Manufacture, ‘an equine mystery’.

The Calibre GP09600

Three Gold Bridges span the dial, similar to those fitted to La Esmeralda of 1889. However, on this latest model, Girard-Perregaux has once again made the invisible visible by bringing the horses engraved on the back case of the original pocket watch up to centre stage of this new timepiece. Indeed, two hand-engraved galloping horses form the right and left ends of the barrel bridge and tourbillon bridge. Each bridge is painstakingly finished and features concave bevelling, mirror-polishing, flanks with horizontal ‘traits-tirés’ and rounded off arms. It requires 40 hours to finish each bridge, while the additional engraving found on the barrel bridge and tourbillon takes an extra 50 hours to complete.
