Girard-Perregaux 1966 Tourbillon with Three Gold Bridges for women

Mechanical watches for women – with multi-functions and complications — are being created by top watch brands more than ever before.  Typically these mechanical calibers are hand assembled and comprise hundreds of tiny parts.  It can take weeks – even months – for the most complicated of movements to be built before being fit into a watch case of   distinction.

I personally love wearing a mechanical watch – there is nothing as satisfying as pulling a watch out, setting it and then winding it – or giving it a little Oshake to feel that automatic rotor whir to life. While I don’t have the near quarter of a million it takes to buy this watch—the Girard-Perregaux 1966 Tourbillon, it is one I thoroughly enjoyed wearing for only a short time. Retailing for $211,500, the watch features the brand’s GP Manufacture tourbillon movement with Three Gold Bridges and is delightful to watch – with the tourbillon escapement constantly moving; it’s an eye-catcher.
