GP Girard Perregaux not only has a long history, it is also the tourbillon authority full of watch altar. The Tourbillon Tri-Axial created by the watch factory has witnessed its new research and development of accurate time technology mileage.
The tourbillon is a subtle mechanical sublimation that improves the accuracy of the travel time. For more than a century and a half, the Girard-Perregaux watch has been a master; the watch factory successfully developed a three-axis tourbillon, and once again demonstrated the level of the technology of controlling the tourbillon.
Tourbillon technology is mainly used to offset the error caused by the gravity of the movement. The three-axis tourbillon takes this idea to a new level: the traditional tourbillon rotates along one axis, and this new work is three-dimensional along three axes. Rotation, accuracy is naturally better.
In order to assemble the three-axis tourbillon movement, the design of the watch body must be adjusted. The crystal glass table mirror with arched lens allows everyone to clearly appreciate the beautiful operation of the tourbillon. This unique idea shows the top technical achievements of Girard-Perregaux. , As well as the unremitting persistence.
Subtle three axes
As the name suggests, the Girard-Perregaux triaxial tourbillon rotates along three axis frames: the inner frame rotates once a minute, the second frame rotates once every 30 seconds along the second axis, and the two are integrated in two Minutes in a third frame.
The three-axis tourbillon structure has a diameter of 13.78 mm and weighs only 1.24 grams. The frame and push parts are made of steel. The titanium or rose gold bracket also has the function of balancing weights. The balance wheel has 16 gold fine-adjusting screws and the swing frequency is 21,600 per hour. Times (3 Hz)
The new GP09300 manual reworked three-axis tourbillon movement is undoubtedly the result of cutting-edge engineering technology, but it contains the essence of traditional craftsmanship; the tourbillon frame retains a lyre-like shape, echoing the design of the Girard-Perregaux tourbillon since the 19th century. The parts are carefully modified by hand, which is an essential element of high-end clocks and crafts. The mirror polishing and chamfering of the three-axis tourbillon movement parts are extremely home (particularly tricky internal positions); the transmission wheels are rounded and the sides are frosted. The eagle imprint on the case back is the symbol of Girard-Perregaux since 1897, and the metal plate engraved from the three-gold bridge tourbillon arrow-shaped splint is engraved with the watch number, and the arrow-shaped golden bridge splint is also visible on the back of the movement.
The GP09300 three-axis tourbillon movement has a diameter of 36.10 mm and a thickness of 16.83 mm. It consists of 317 parts, provides a 52-hour power reserve, and has hour, minute and power reserve display functions.
The dial has a clear hierarchy
The dial structure of this new work is clearly structured: the three-axis tourbillon can be seen at 9 o’clock, and the silver hour dial at 1:30 is decorated with Paris spikes and equipped with rose gold numerals and time markers; the hour dial is surrounded by a rose gold frame and the black dial There are white minute numerals on the edges; the crown prince hands in rose gold are chamfered and hollowed out; the center power reserve hand and the 6 o’clock curved scale are used to display the remaining power; at 11 o’clock, the gold Girard Perregaux logo. The circles and arcs on the dial are ingenious. The texture of the gray part is like the Japanese landscape garden. It is compared with the sophisticated tourbillon technology and the implicit and simple style.
The bevelled bezel, round bezel and elegantly slender lugs of the rose gold case echo the design aesthetics of the Girard-Perregaux Haute Horlogerie. The crystal glass structure is also outstanding: the arched lens at 9 o’clock, focusing on the three-axis structure of the tourbillon, the grinding and cutting technology is very precise; the case side is set with an arched glass sheet at 9 o’clock, and the tourbillon movement is seen from another angle Operation. The transparent case back is densely set with screws, the movement structure, the Tri-Axial engraved plywood and other parts are flawlessly modified.
