Cosmic Blues: Girard-Perregaux Quasar Azure Limited Edition

Girard-Perregaux's invention of a tourbillon with three bridges, first unveiled in a timepiece on 1867, has influenced the venerable maison's tourbillon-equipped wristwatches ever since, most notably in its eye-popping Quasar editions of recent years The newest one, limited to only eight pieces, fits the Quasar's sophisticated, skeletonized tourbillon movement into a case made entirely of blue sapphire The first Quasar timepiece, released early in 2019 and named after a super-luminous astronomical object in keeping with that year's "Earth to Sky" theme, was the first Girard-Perregaux watch with a case made entirely from sapphire.

Its follow-up, in February 2020, was the Quasar Light, which also used sapphire for the iconic three bridges of the tourbillon The Quasar Azure is distinguished by its translucent 46-mm case, sculpted from a single block of blue-tinted sapphire The Quasar Azure's arrow-shaped "Neo-Bridges" - which anchor the tourbillon and have their aesthetic origin in the famous La Esmeralda pocketwatch of 1889 - are made of grade 5 titanium and are set against an NAC-treated mainplate.

The Girard-Perregaux Quasar Azure is mounted on a metallic-effect anthracite fabric strap with matching hand stitching and a triple folding clasp made of DLC-coated titanium. . More
