This is the latest offering from Girard-Perregaux and a breathtaking addition to the Cat's Eye collection.

The Cat's Eye Tourbillon features - you guessed it - a tourbillon at 6:00 o'clock nestled neatly beneath a gold bridge.   This particular horological bijoux features Girard-Perregaux's hand-wound calibre GP09700-0012.  The case is of white gold, measuring 37.30 x 32.30 in a pleasing oval shaped configuration.   The dial is white mother-of-pearl and the case and bezel are bejeweled with 293 "brilliant-cut" diamonds.  Diamonds also find their way onto the crown (1 rose-cut diamond) and the buckle with 14 brilliant-cut diamonds.

For those of you craving the minutiae - and I know that there are some of you out there, here it is:
