The Quasar Light by Girard-Perregaux is yet another bold expression of technical mastery and contemporary design that exemplifies the Swiss manufacture’s heritage.
Taking transparency to the extreme while revealing the art of precision engineering, the skeletonised tourbillon appears to float inside an invisible case, made from a single Swiss-made sapphire disk, a highly technical feat requiring more than 200 hours to achieve. Driven by the self-winding Caliber GP09400-1128, the 46mm masterpiece by Girard-Perregaux glitters with starry lustre as light hits its mainspring barrel crafted from ruthenium, a rare platinum metal selected for its diamond-like brilliance. Inspired by architectural marvels in the world’s greatest cities, the manufacture’s iconic trio of arrow shaped Aerial Neo-bridges are also finished in sapphire to reveal the finest details of the mechanisms below. Another Girard-Perregaux signature on the masterpiece, limited to just 18 pieces, are the white gold Dauphine hour and minute hands, which are skeletonised and luminescent.
