As a loyal fan of Only Watch, a well-known biennial charity auction, G.P. Girard-Perregaux specially launched an exclusive watch to show its support. G.P. Girard-Perregaux’s new constant-force escapement watch, Only Watch charity auction special edition, adopts the brand’s highly creative constant-force technology. The constant force escapement L.M. watch won the “Golden Pointer” award at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie Genève (GPHG) in Geneva in 2013. As a breakthrough innovation of the brand, this watch combines rich aesthetics and advanced technology, all presented in a modern and new-style appearance, highlighting the extraordinary ingenuity and craftsmanship of G.P. Girard-Perregaux. Top replica watch.
There is a problem with most watches: when the mainspring is fully wound, the spring force of the regulating mechanism is too strong, which will affect the accuracy of the eye and cause damage to the movement. As the energy in the barrel gradually decreases, before it is completely exhausted, the speed regulating mechanism receives insufficient power, which once again affects the watch’s accuracy.
The constant power escapement system can solve such problems and provide a continuous energy supply to the speed-regulating mechanism to stabilize travel time. Furthermore, this watch has been certified by the Swiss Official Observatory (COSC).
G.P. Girard-Perregaux has been a loyal supporter of the Only Watch Charity Auction since 2007. The auction was founded by Luc Pettavino in 2005 to raise funds for Duchenne muscular dystrophy research. As a testimony of the deep and long-standing friendship between the two parties, G.P. Girard-Perregaux has created many unique models for Only Watch, demonstrating the brand’s outstanding creativity and design capabilities. Swiss replica website.
This year, G.P. Girard-Perregaux, inspired by the brand’s well-known Bridges Golden Bridge series, launched this unique watch-the new constant power escapement watch, Only Watch Charity Auction Special Edition. This watch is a contemporary interpretation based on the prototype of the continuous force escapement system released in 2008, and the color tone that first appeared on the constant force escapement system prototype was selected to pay tribute to this breakthrough masterpiece. The watch uses purple silicon parts, which are in stark contrast to the matte case in a single warm tone, and abandons the traditional dial so that the central hour, minute, and central seconds hands are suspended above many functional parts, including the double barrel and unique Silicone leaf-shaped hairspring.
The extremely thin silicon leaf-shaped hairspring provides stable energy to the speed-regulating mechanism through repeated buckling phenomenon. The silicon escapement hairspring is placed in the center of the buckling hairspring and is formed in one piece from a single silicon crystal. In addition to functionality, the recognizable symmetrical structure of the constant force escapement system highlights the watchmaking aesthetics of G.P. Girard-Perregaux, similar to its iconic Laurel series octagonal bezel and the legendary Golden Bridge series.
The hollowed-out dauphine-style hour and minute hands are treated with black nickel to indicate the current time. They are made of luminous material, making the watch clear and easy to read, even in low-light environments. The gold track on the outer edge of the dial is decorated with black markings, and the luminous hour markers stand out and curve outwards, appearing to float above the dial.
G.P. Girard-Perregaux’s new constant power escapement watch, Only Watch Charity Auction Special Edition, carries the brand’s patented technology, highlighting the innovative spirit that G.P. Girard-Perregaux has upheld since its inception in 1791.
