This beautiful Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 Jackpot Tourbillon is now available in a new white gold version. This haute couture is the first watch ever to combine a standard style tourbillon with a gold frame and a slot machine.
Vintage 1945 Jackpot Tourbillon is the result of a combination of gambling games and watchmaking. Girard-Perregaux was the first manufacturer to link these two different industries, and from this came an ultra-luxury high-end custom watch. In this watch, a tourbillon and a slot machine are combined. Both use a machine Structural work. This sophisticated and sophisticated mechanical interior design is very elegant, perfectly integrating Art Deco art into the vintage 1945 case technology, and now this case has a white gold version.
This extremely complex and highly integrated movement is the perfect expression of the trend of miniaturization. It includes 502 parts and requires the most skilled watchmakers to produce it. Thanks to the use of a separate hairspring box, the lever can be raised an unlimited number of times without affecting the watch’s four-day energy storage. The transparent case back allows the perfect movement of the movement to be observed.
In this extraordinary watch, a lot of attention to detail, including the choice of markings, is very esoteric. Hollowed out on gold scrolls and carefully painted, making poker spades, hearts, cubes and plums and bells is exactly like the first mechanical slot machine, the famous ‘Liberty Bell’. That machine was invented by Charles August Fay at the end of the nineteenth century and was named after the Liberty Bell, a symbol of American independence.
