The newest rendition of Girard Perregaux’s Cat’s Eye Day and Night timepiece takes the wearer through a fascinating journey of enchantment. Featured in a high jewellery model for the first time, the Cat’s Eye Day and Night is an elegant yet decidedly decadent piece of adornment for the wrist.
Cat’s Eye Day/Night
If the eye-catching deep blue aventurine dial, dazzling with the shine of gold is not enough to draw you in, the 149 multi-sized brilliant cut diamonds that surround the round dial will definitely capture your attention.
The dial of the Cat’s Eye Day and Night also features a white gold Day/Night disk at 6 o’clock, which completes one entire rotation in 24 hours, and indicates the day and night. The disc is adorned on one side with the image of the sun, and on the other with a delicate moon. As the disk rotates, either the sun or the moon is visible, with the other hidden discreetly under the half-circle of diamonds on the Day/Night disk.
This complication has an almost fairytale romance to its delicate movement and adds a sense of enchantment to this beautiful timepiece.
The oval shaped white gold case is set with 52 brilliant-cut diamonds, weighing approximately 2.31 carats and surrounds the circular dial, creating the illusion of the mystical Cat’s Eye. The case diameter measures 36.9mm and it sits comfortably even on smaller wrists, bringing a special sparkle to a classy evening ensemble, or even dressing up more formal business attire.
The Cats Eye Day and Night high jewellery watch is powered by Girard Perrgaux’s in-house mechanical manufacture movement, GP330-00900 and indicates the hours and minutes with leaf-shaped white-gold hands. The functioning of the Day/Night disk is also connected to the hours and minutes.
The exquisitely decorated movement of the Cat’s Eye Day and Night is visible through the sapphire crystal caseback of the watch and the deep blue alligator leather strap is the perfect finishing touch. The white gold buckle is studded with 31 brilliant-cut diamonds leaving little question as to why this watch has earned the moniker – Cat’s Eye in Wonderland!
HOT Verdict: Breathtakingly elegant with a dazzle of fairytale romance!
