Aston Martin Tourbillon with three flying bridges
The first timepiece borne of the Tourbillon and Aston Martin partnership has been revealed. The Tourbillon with Three Flying Bridges. Aston Martin Edition unites the watchmaking expertise of Girard-Perregaux with Aston Martin’s unique knowledge of luxury and performance.
Having worked together, sharing their understanding of design, materials, and technology, demonstrates a passionate partnership of refined craftsmanship.
This latest model celebrates the iconic 19th century Three Bridges pocket watch in a decidedly contemporary way, down to the smallest details, including the strap.
Patrick Pruniaux, CEO of Girard-Perregaux says: “Rarely do we work with others to reinterpret the Three Bridges however, on this occasion, we have made an exception, mindful of Aston Martin’s prowess for design.”
Upholding Girard-Perregaux tradition, this model skilfully plays with proportions and shapes, much to the delight of aesthetes.
The 44mm case of the Tourbillon with Three Flying Bridges – Aston Martin Edition is formed of Grade 5 titanium, a strong, hypoallergenic alloy selected by Aston Martin for its lightweight properties. It is suffused with black DLC, bestowing the watch with a stealthy appearance.
While Girard-Perregaux has a long history of making the invisible visible, in this instance it has ventured off-piste, creating a watch whose movement appears to levitate within the case.
Only 18 examples of this incredible piece of Haute Horlogerie will be created; with a price tag of £146,000, excluding VAT.
