The Cat’s Eye is a unique creation in women’s watchmaking.

It is distinguished by its curved case, a perfectly balanced ellipse, a shape created by Girard-Perregaux offering sensuality and uniqueness. This ode to grace is designed by and for women, a truly original creation that has for decades offered a unique canvas for Girard-Perregaux’s creativity and several artistic professions.

In this new version, a plum flower blooms upon the dial. Delicate and fragile, it appears as a small second hand, like a flower taking its fragrance and life from the earth. This year the famous ellipse, signature of the Cat’s Eye collection, is in mother-of-pearl, aventurine and diamond, so it sparkles more brightly, like pure, iridescent lights at night.

At its core, the oscillating weight is a handcrafted, perforated, decorative bud that gives substance to the invisible. The small poetic feature, a flower for a hand, recalls the fundamental essence of the watchmaker, the beating heart of the watch, its mechanical caliber revealed in the oscillating weight delicately engraved with the designer’s initials. Thus turning, the plum blossom on the dial recalls each passing second of the movement giving life to the watch and, against the skin, a gentle illusion of wearing time and the seasons upon the wrist.
