One of the oldest manufacturers still in operation in Switzerland today, Girard-Perregaux has been making fine watches since its formation in 1791. The Minute Repeater Tri-Axial Tourbillon is a product of two incredibly advanced and technically challenging complications, in combination with the full range of Girard-Perregaux’s artisan skill.


Rarely seen titanium in fine watchmaking, the metal is very difficult to work with due to its strength and toughness. In this instance, the quality craftsmanship of Girard-Perregaux results in a powerful and stylish titanium case that is light and comfortable. The low-density nature of titanium also allows for maximum auditory efficiency of the minute repeater complication, resulting in impeccably precise, powerful and harmonious chimes as the hammers strike.


Also housed within the movement is a tourbillon spinning on three different axes at varying speeds, creating a maximum of points where flaws in equilibrium and imbalances can cancel each other out regardless of the watch’s position. Thanks to the semi-skeletonised dial, the intricate components of the minute repeater as well as the tourbillon cages can be appropriately admired. An aesthetic and mechanical statement, this impressive timepiece commands attention to its wearer’s wrist at the first glance.
