|Girard-Perregaux Esmeralda tourbillon|
To celebrate its 220th anniversary, Girard-Perregaux (which was recently acquired by PPR
) will hold a series of exhibitions around the world, including stops in Singapore and New York, to show watches from its museum, including the famous Esmeralda Three Gold Bridges pocket watch.
I was fortunate enough to actually seen and hold the Esmeralda; it is larger and heavy than it looks and though it’s clearly old the movement is beautiful.
