Girard-Perregaux has unveiled its latest marvel, the Free Bridge Meteorite, in a bold leap towards the cosmos. This exceptional timepiece is a testament to the brand’s innovative spirit, featuring two extraordinary pieces of Gibeon meteorite sourced directly from Namibia. The Free Bridge Meteorite is not just a watch; it’s a portal to the vastness of the universe, embodied in a design that whispers tales of distant worlds and celestial wonders.

Heritage Meets Modernity

With roots tracing back to the 19th century, the Bridges Collection has long been a symbol of Girard-Perregaux’s rich heritage in Haute Horlogerie. The Free Bridge Meteorite pays homage to this legacy, preserving the collection’s hallmark inverted movement and front-placed bridges with a modern twist. The addition of meteorite fragments introduces a contemporary edge, marrying the collection’s storied past with the allure of outer space.

Celestial Craftsmanship

The heart of the Free Bridge Meteorite beats with fragments of the Gibeon meteorite, an iron-nickel alloy enriched with cobalt and phosphorous. These cosmic visitors are adorned with the distinctive Widmanstätten pattern, a natural testament to their extraterrestrial origin. Each pattern is unique, ensuring that every watch is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Treated with care to preserve their natural beauty and plated with rhodium to protect against corrosion, this timepiece’s meteorite plates are a striking feature.

A Design Masterpiece

The Free Bridge Meteorite is a study of symmetry and sophistication. Encased under a sapphire crystal box, the meteorite plates flank the main dial, creating a mesmerizing effect. The skeletonized, luminescent dauphine-style hands add a touch of elegance, while the openworked spring barrel offers a peek into the watch’s inner workings. Powered by the Calibre GP01800-2085, this timepiece boasts elements made from silicium, ensuring durability and shock resistance.

A Fusion of Elegance and Durability

Encapsulating this celestial journey is a 44 mm stainless steel case, which blends polished and satin finishes for an exquisite look. The watch promises style and resilience, complemented by a fabric-effect black rubber strap. Set to launch globally this March 2024, the Girard-Perregaux Free Bridge Meteorite is priced at $25,700, offering watch enthusiasts a slice of the cosmos on their wrist.
