Mechanics Of Time

Girard-Perregaux’s new 1966 Skeleton is an open invitation to explore the mechanics of time. The skeleton movement strikes an enticing balance with the other components of the working interior of this timepiece.

The contrast between the rhodium-plated gear train and the anthracite treatment chosen for the plate and bridges is an exhortation to travel deeper into this fascinating labyrinth. Inert matter springs to life, organs breathe, and suddenly we are confronted with the details of this meticulous staging – chamfering, drawing, polishing and satin-brushing – all hand-executed by artisan-watchmakers. Time becomes a pretext to reveal the mechanical watch as a piece of art, in which the 173 parts are akin to the brushstrokes of an old master.
