Girard-Perregaux shows off its attention to detail and craftsmanship with this new limited-edition collection.
The watches that help pave the way for luxury brands tend to be celebrated later on as milestone examples that cater to the true collectors and enthusiasts of the watch world. Historic brands like Girard-Perregaux incorporate their earliest forms of design and movement technology to relay the message of the immense capabilities of the wristwatch.

The La Esmeralda Tourbillon ‘A Secret’ Eternity Edition presents itself as a 43mm grand complication handcrafted from Pink Gold with elegant engravings to highlight the craftsmanship.

The partial skeletonized dial design allows for a closer look at the inner workings of the complex Tourbillon movement while the rest of the layout features intricate engravings of horses in motion. Powering the La Esmeralda Tourbillon is Girard-Perregaux’s in-house GP09600-1506 self-winding mechanical movement, which provides an impressive 50-hour power reserve while operating under a 30-meter water resistance. The true beauty lies in the caseback where Girard-Perregaux adds a color-matched engraved cover that opens to reveal an additional sapphire caseback with engravings to signify the limited-edition collection. Tying into the luxury look and feel, Girard-Perregaux completes the timepiece with a large-scale alligator leather strap and an engraved material matching triple folding clasp. The all-new Girard-Perregaux La Esmeralda Tourbillon ‘A Secret’ Eternity Edition is available on request in seven different colorways (18-pieces each color) with a price tag of $460,000.
