2012/11/30 - Girard-Perregaux the new Cat’s Eye Steel


A new look at women


There’s no doubt about it; the Cat’s Eye collection is one of the most loyal ambassadors of ladies’ watches. Following the example of women themselves, it has never stopped refining its appearance; underlining a character trait, modifying a tiny detail of its appeal, subtly perfecting the curves of its silhouette. The new Cat’s Eye now enters the scene in a redesigned steel case with an elegant dial that is totally feminine.

The Cat’s Eye has conquered its public with its oval shape that gives time an unmistakable, immediately recognizable personality. Without ever losing its identity, its watchmaking complications are adorned with diamonds, perfectly reflecting a woman's multiple facets, her various roles in daily life, her aspirations and her sensitivity. Now, produced in steel, the Cat’s Eye takes on a different appearance.

First of all, its modern silhouette is both subtle and generous. The horns stretch around the diameter that has been enlarged to satisfy today’s preference, while the bezel changes shape, ensuring that its diamonds catch the light and the eye. Encircled by precious stones, the dial is line of poetry, taking the woman as inspiration. The sparkling colors of champagne or silver present their sun-brushed finish. A numeral at 12 is accompanied by applied, elongated teardrop markers that bring real fluidity to the hour circle. Facing the small seconds counter, the date at 3 o’clock appears in a window that echoes the shape of the case.  Lastly, the power reserve is indicated in a constellation of stars.

Behind its delicate appearance is an elegant mechanism; an automatic movement with an oscillating weight, specially designed for the occasion, that can be seen through the Cat’s Eye’s sapphire crystal case back. Embellished with a tapestry of the GP initials, it swings proudly above a plate and bridges that are decorated with Côtes de Genève, a finish traditionally associated with fine watchmaking. A delicate bracelet adds the final touch to a piece that embodies the innate grace and sparkle of contemporary women.
