GP Girard-Perregaux repeats the traditional glory of the Cabinets of Curiosities, inspired by the treasures from the Renaissance Europe as early as the perfect display of the miracle treasure chest Chamber of Wonders watch. With this special name, it opens a new door to watchmaking, leading watch fans into a place full of wonderful treasures: including exploring endless secrets, brilliant stories, natural accessories, and various rare treasures …

   Through the skilled craftsmen, based on many fine gems and other materials, with a lot of fine painting details, this set of Chambers of Wonders miracle box series watches, in the limited square inch space of the dial, will be three different time and space Enchanted into eternity, in a realm of poetic and even dream, to satisfy people’s desire to explore the world, it is the magic magic of painting art …

Appreciating the world through different era backgrounds

   The early maps seemed to accumulate geographic knowledge, because the civilizations that produced these images were full of imaginative quotes and less complete scientific concepts. Through their interpretation of space and boundaries, they described the self-confidence of the people at the time, and claimed to be the center of the world.

   Like poets, writers, scientists, and explorers, inspired by the constant pursuit of knowledge, the designers of these maps often depict neighboring countries as places full of strange creatures. The size of frontiers, rivers, and regions have all emerged through cross-disciplinary science, but there are still many unknown worlds to explore. At that time, scientific observation was often influenced by the collective subconscious mind. It is also therefore surprising that these maps still convey a correlation of time and space.

   Time is a friend of knowledge, and with the emergence of new messages from generation to generation, these boundaries have gradually changed.

A new series to pay tribute to past map masters

   Three new watch themes interpreted through outstanding knowledge and craftsmanship. The three different ages and different worlds include: The Pearl of Wonders, Terrestrial Map, and The New World. Renaissance images are timeless on three Girard-Perregaux dials. Three rose gold GP1966 watches with self-winding self-made movements present completely different perspectives and emotions. The gorgeous GP03300 movement born in the watchmaking factory echoes the long-standing tradition of Girard-Perregaux watches, as well as absolute precision and high reliability. The main floor and bridge are chamfered, with charming round patterns and Geneva ripples. It is completed with 205 components, provides a power reserve of more than 46 hours, and the movement vibrates 28,000 times per hour. With a diameter of 25.60 mm (11 ½ cents) and a thickness of 4.20 mm, it can be perfectly matched with a delicate and elegant rose gold case, all developed and completed in the watch factory. The perfect and harmonious design, combined with a polished arc bezel, enhances its thinness.

Terrestrial Map

   GP Girard-Perregaux chose to display the ancient Chinese map in a circle, inspired by Matteo Ricci, an Italian Jesuit believer. Matteo Ricci was a theologian, philosopher, mathematician, cosmologist, and astronomer. The missionary had long been a missionary in Asia. He arrived in Macau in 1582 and settled the rest of his life in China. He shared his knowledge with local scholars and officials and became the first Westerner to be allowed into the Forbidden City. During the Ming Dynasty, he translated maps that changed global geography to China.

   Just as the eulogy of exploring new lands was praised at that time, five continents appeared on this land map. Even if Libya is the representative of Africa and Australia is represented by Australia, the four oceans are fully marked. Other exquisite features are displayed in Chinese, showing extremely amazing geographic and astronomical precision: The Nile is the longest river in the world, the earth is round, and the differences between day and night time appear here. The earth and some other planets The distance is also explained by the table.

Use of natural materials and Indian ink painting

   In this rare work, Girard Perregaux chose pure white jade as the cornerstone, and the transparent lines show depth. On each side of the dial, a piece of jade sculpture is used to form a thin disc, which is polished to create the ideal thickness (0.70 mm), and the surface is completely flat. Next, an experienced painting craftsman needs to invest 17 hours to carry out detailed drawing and finish it with natural Indian ink and special adhesive. The speed of ink drying is extremely fast, so the brush strokes should not hesitate. Use confident and talented strokes to outline the lines. The light and shadow effects presented are cleverly original. The completely accurate interpretation of the gray hue outlines the subtle arcs of the coast and the ground, and the well-known earth and historical relief effects are presented here.

Back in 1941, 70 years ago, Patek Philippe began adding perpetual calendar chronographs to its mass-produced chronograph product series, and since then they have become the brand’s most popular super-complex multi-function watch. This type of watch needs to integrate two extremely complicated devices, involving a lot of manual links. In order to ensure perfect manufacturing, only the most experienced professional watchmakers can complete it. This is one of the main reasons for the limited production of Patek Philippe complication watches. Similarly, the new Ref. 5270 watch brings together watch collectors’ expectations for all the features and performance of a future collection.

In terms of appearance, Ref. 5270 follows one of the most noble traditions of this type of watch: the day of the week and the month are displayed at 12 o’clock; the analog date and moon phase are displayed at 6 o’clock; the small seconds dial is located at At 9 o’clock; the 30-minute counter is at 3 o’clock. For 70 years, this has been the classic dial layout of Patek Philippe’s perpetual calendar chronograph. Of course, compared to similar models before, this perpetual calendar chronograph has some highlights of its own. The small seconds dial and 30-minute chronograph are positioned slightly below the horizontal centerline of the dial. There are two tiny circular display windows between the date display and the auxiliary dial, the day and night display window on the left and the leap year display window on the right. This new chronograph movement uses a star wheel control mechanism and a horizontal clutch wheel. It is hidden in the classic Patek Philippe dial. It is a boutique developed and manufactured by the Geneva Watchmaking Workshop.
Classic chronographs of the 21st century
The new manual winding chronograph movement CH 29-535 PS Q adds a perpetual calendar function. Compared with other traditional chronograph movements, it has more innovative and optimized functions. For example, although the engagement and disengagement of drive wheels, clutch wheels, and timing wheels are still performed in a traditional way, these gears use a recalculated patented sawtooth shape compared to conventional triangular gear teeth, which reduces wear, improves efficiency, and Prevent collision of tooth tips. In addition, the degree of gear engagement is not adjusted by the common eccentric wheel, but by a slightly eccentric polished star column dome cover. The polished dome cover of the stylus wheel can determine the position of the clutch lever at the outermost point very accurately. Other optimization features include a custom-built hammer between jewel bearings, a synchronous clutch stop lever and a pusher lever, and a minute timer cam with a notch to prevent the gear from suddenly decelerating excessively when it returns to zero. With these six patent-pending inventions, the new movement is definitely the most advanced of all traditional chronograph movements. At the same time, it is used to carry a perpetual calendar device-one of the most popular complication of Patek Philippe, and it is also perfect. In fact, the ephemeris device is of special significance to Patek Philippe’s watchmaking workshop in Geneva.
Classic gorgeous white gold case inherits fine traditions

Ref. 5270 case makes the sophisticated CH 29-535 PS Q movement and clear dial more noble and gorgeous. This 41-mm diameter case is much larger than its predecessor and is generous and decent. This case is made of 18K white gold and is made of traditional cold-molded technology. It has a typical three-piece structure. The solid platinum plate is placed in a high-precision mold, and the large tonnage heavy press is used for high-pressure die-casting. After cold forming, the watchmaker spends a lot of time processing the tube holes of the crown, chronograph button, adjustment button and strap bolt, and trimming, fine grinding and mirror polishing the case; after these After the process, the case with the concave bezel and elegant curved lugs is completed. The 18K white gold chronograph button has a rounded rectangular shape, which is very similar to the chronograph button of the first Patek Philippe perpetual calendar chronograph in the 1940s and 1950s. The slightly concave lugs on the sides are also inspired by these early models. The sapphire crystal see-through window on the screw-down case back can show some of the most attractive parts of the art of mechanical watchmaking: the large-scale Gyromax (Patek Philippe Gyromax series clocks) balance wheel and the main fork rod and gear of the timing device. The beautiful posture of these exquisite movement components in operation is amazing. With a hand-stitched matte black crocodile leather strap and 18K white gold folding clasp, the Ref. 5270 watch has a timeless classic light in modern craftsmanship.
