Lovers of fine timepieces and exquisite jewelry much appreciated the union of Boucheron and Girard-Perregaux that took place in 2007. The alliance between the two greats now culminates with the high end timepiece, the Ladyhawke Tourbillion. The perfect example of exquisite timepieces, the Ladyhawke beautifully blends high end watch making with high end jewelry. The Ladyhawke is another signature timepiece from jeweler, Boucheron who specializes in watches, with animals as the focus point in every design. The Ladyhawke’s design, a falcon clutching a watch powered by the Tourbillon with three gold Bridges movement, is definitely a class apart. The stunning timepiece is fashioned from gold and is adorned with yellow, pink, white diamonds totaling 25carats in weight and rubies. The beautiful creation might remind watch lovers of the famous 1985 Italian movie of love and magic, Ladyhawke in which the heroine turns falcon by day and beautiful woman by night.
But it’s not just the design that commands adulation. The Girard-Perregaux Tourbillon with three gold Bridges movement is a technical genius that deserves to be lauded. The Tourbillon itself consists of 72 components for a diameter of one centimeter and a total weight of 0.3 gram, and is entirely hand-decorated and assembled. Boasting of a 72 hour power reserve, this exquisite creation features an articulated bracelet with an invisible clasp mechanism.
The perfect timepiece to celebrate the culmination of the partnership between the two houses, the Ladyhawke promises to become a collector’s edition for sure.
