Girard-Perregaux Automatic with 3 gold Bridges

To meet the expectations of the collectors and friends, GIRARD-PERREGAUX presented in 1999 a Tourbillon with three gold Bridges fitted with an automatic winding system.
Their idea, a real stroke of genius, was to use the space available on the plate below and around the barrel to install a small platinum rotor which, due to its high density, would compensate for its small diameter. This respects both the dimension of the movement and the perfect structure of the three Bridges.
Patented by the GIRARD-PERREGAUX Manufactory, this technical feat produced not only an absolutely reliable movement, but one with a power reserve of over 48 hours, another remarkable feature in a watch now recognised throughout the world
