Jean-Francois Bautte and Constant Girard, the two founders of the Girard-Perregaux brand, are known as ingenious watchmakers. At the end of the 18th century, Bautte introduced an ultra-thin watch, combining amazingly small and complex parts. Constant is more technically focused. He continues to design more elaborate timing mechanisms and digs into more complex movements, making the famous ‘Three Golden Bridge Tourbillon’ watch finally available. In 2009, Girard Perregaux launched the Cat’s Eye series of high-end jewellery watches based on the watchmaking concepts and experiences of two founders, Jean-Francois Bautte and Constant Girard. The band is set with up to 394 top diamonds. This Girard Perregaux jewellery watch is produced to order, and it may take up to half a year to a year after the deposit is delivered.
Girard Perregaux is one of the few Swiss manufacturers that can design and produce movements. The movement of each watch in the Cat’s Eye series of high-end jewelry watches is manually assembled, carved and decorated by Girard Perregaux experts. , Passed the quality test of several different manufacturing steps. The Cat’s Eye collection of high-end jewellery watches preserves the most elaborate oval lines of the Cat’s Eye collection. Master craftsmen set 87 baguette diamonds on the case and bezel, while the dial and strap are set with 98 and 204 rectangles, respectively The diamonds, together with 5 tassel-shaped diamonds on the star-shaped crown, have a total of 394 square diamonds with a brilliant brilliance (about 52 carats).
Making this collection of highly technical and artistic beauty is time-consuming. It involves a long and extremely strict and precise process performed at 10 workplaces. Each step cannot be lost. The process of setting a watch alone is used. 1200 hours. The watch factory must first determine and record the position and size of each rectangular diamond on the watch body, and then carefully select from the most pure diamond materials for rectangular cutting and polishing, and then inlay one by one according to the arc of the watch body; Whether or not the precise positioning of the diamond determines whether the diamond can reflect the most brilliant light, the craftsmanship and experience of the gemstone craftsman are crucial in this process. After the stone setting process is completed, a senior sanding craftsman will take over and let the entire watch shine.
