The Quasar Light honours this legacy by engineering transparency to the extreme. Named after the most brilliant of astronomical entities, it is an epic masterpiece with gleaming aerial views of the Manufacture’s most iconic movement encased in Swiss-made Sapphire, exclusively available in just 8 pieces.
The Quasar Azure is a brilliantly bold expression of the company’s technical mastery, contemporary design and rich heritage. Sapphire is extremely difficult to craft because of its hardness. The case is formed, coloured, milled and polished by Girard-Perregaux artisans through a protracted process, taking over 200 hours. Set within the azure blue case, the tourbillon seemingly floats. The wearer is also indulged with aerial views of the Neo Bridges, a Girard-Perregaux signature inspired by architectural structures.
The watch’s brilliant mechanism, GP09400, is developed and manufactured in-house. Thanks to its ingenious construction, the barrel was resized in order to house a longer barrel spring and to offer a longer power reserve, min. 60 hours instead of 48 hours for the traditional model.
