A week ago, Girard-Perregaux issued a press release on another exciting variation within its Cat’s Eye collection. It is quite common that new releases are spread a bit over the year and perhaps it is an indication that the Christmas season is coming.
The Cat’s Eye Lotus and Arabian Jasmin displays besides time, a night and day indication using either the Lotus flower or the Arabian Jasmin. While the Lotus blossoms at day break, the Jasmin is a night flower. Consequently, the Lotus is paired with a Moon while the Jasmin is paired with a Sun. So if you want your Lady to always have a flower on the dial, I’m afraid you need to buy both the Lotus and the Arabian Jasmin, the Lotus during the day and the Jasmin during the night.
The Cat’s Eye Lotus is available in steel with a diamond set bezel and the Arabian Jasmin comes in a pink gold case with additional diamonds on the dial. At the back, the flower theme is emphasised with a flower-shaped oscillating weight.
