Men’s Watch: Girard Perregaux Tri-Axial Tourbillon
Girard Perregaux is back and at it again with an ultra-fine watch. Only this time, it’s a tri-axial tourbillon. And yes, the design is just as sleek (if not more) than the name. In fact, this might be one of the coolest watches you’ll ever wear! Think something along the lines of clean and industrial. Overall, It makes for one fine piece of jewelry waiting to sit atop your wrist. But enough with the hype. Instead, let’s jump to the reasons you’ll want to add the Girard Perregaux Tri-Axial Tourbillon watch to your collection.
Design: Is There Anything Sleeker Than a Tri-Axial in Motion?
Everything about the Tri-Axial Tourbillon is a win when it comes to design. Almost immediately, your eyes will be drawn to an ultra-suave 18-carat white gold case. In fact, it does a stellar job of framing all the intricate pieces of this fine watch.
Then there’s that black leather strap. It couldn’t contrast any better with the silver coloring of the watch itself. Even better, it works perfectly for any skin tone and any occasion.
Moving back to the watch itself, you’ll find a typical analog dial. The hands and hour marks stand out with a rose gold coloring. In fact, this watch couldn’t have found a better color to work alongside the black and silver accents found throughout the rest of this timepiece.
What really steals the show here is the tri-axial design. It’s one of those things that needs to be seen in motion to truly understand how cool this watch truly looks. To put it simply, this watch can essentially divide into three pieces. The interior piece makes a full 360-degree rotation every minute. Then there’s the middle piece which runs full circle every 30 seconds. And to finish this off, there’s the outer piece that completes its lap every two minutes. All these pieces remain in motion at the same time, which provides a life to this watch that no other piece of jewelry can offer.
And then there’s that tourbillon to the left of the dial which only adds more animation to this fine watch. This is the piece that will instantly grab any onlooker’s attention. But really, how can you go wrong when you put 140 pieces of fine, hand designed, clockwork in motion? And let’s not forget about the signature three bridge tourbillon design that Girard Perregaux perfected over the years.
Overall, this is one of few watches you’ll ever find that simply adds an abundance of life to your wrist. There’s so much smooth movement and motion within this fine design that it’s hard to look away.
The Movement: The Cool Design Only Continues
Much like the design, the Girard Perregaux Tri-Axial Tourbillon offers one of the coolest movements ever found on a watch. It’s quite large too, with 317 different pieces. So again, there’s some impressive clockwork to be seen here.
What’s especially sleek about the design here is that you can see the movement from the front face of your watch. You’ll find some slim and subtle silver slats that offer you a subtle view of the movement in action. But of course, you can flip the face of your watch over to get a full view of this intricate piece. It’s more of that suave silver design from the front. And there’s even the word Tri-Axial printed in clear large print—just as a reminder that you’re wearing an ultra-luxurious watch.
What’s the Price of a Girard Perregaux Tri-Axial Tourbillon?
As you might have guessed, the price tag is fully represented in all the precise and intricate clockwork found on this timepiece. So expect a starting MSRP of $376,500 if you plan to buy this ultra-sleek watch. And in all honesty, that price seems like a bargain when you factor in all the fine details found on this luxury watch.
Words simply cannot describe how elaborate this watch will look wresting upon your wrist. In fact, even pictures fail to tell the full story of how elegant the perpetual motion of this timepiece looks. The Girard Perregaux Tri-Axial Tourbillon is a watch that exudes individuality and luxury in every sense of the word. And it couldn’t look any better sitting atop the wrist of a refined gentleman.
