Hands on with the Girard-Perregaux Classic Bridges 45mm, Ref 86000

Friends,

after SIHH 2018 we had a detailed look and reviews on the Novelties, among them the new Classic Bridges.

You can refer back to the review here:


I now had the opportunity to spend some (limited) time with the 45mm, Ref 86000 on my wrist and I could take some fresh shots.

A watch that is surprising in all aspects. It comes across like a Haute Horlogerie three-bridge-tourbillon and has the same polishing and finishing of the bridges but just no Tourbillon.

The polished bridges are the most fascinating on this watch for sure.

There is a lot of pink gold and the open dial provides great sophistication.

Unlike the Neo-Bridges with its Titanium case, the Classic Bridges aims more for the classic dress watch look.

A very impressive watch and a winner in my book.

Here are some wristshots that speak for themselves.

These gold bridges are outstanding. The level of finishing is really imprressive. Well done, GP. The back side is less spectacular, though. But what a watch! Thanks for the presentation, my friend. Best, Nicolas

The fascination comes from the golden bridges and here for the first time you can have it without the expense of a Tourbillon I will not count the (small) bridge that was present in the Heritage edition "Place Giradet"...

That’s a Great… piece of workmanship by GP. If only they had produced it in a more reasonable 40mm

They do, check out the report under link... two versions available 45 and 40mm But trust me, you really want the 45mm, it's a better fit for this kind of watch.

Great shots, CC! Here I think the 40mm is good for the wrist while the 45mm is better for the eye's and the type of movement... Only solution to get both?! Best Blomman

Woww !.. That is a very nice but also pretty eclectic watch !.. Guess, personally I might opt for.. .. the 45mm. (Think of Panerai sizes..) and it must be more space to watch with pleasure the screenplay ! Great pics as well; maybe something to think about for the (mid-term) future ?.. Hmmhh.. Best, hs

Disclaimer: This article does not intend to promote or to undermine any aspects of the watch, and is purely a study of the movement out of interest by a non-professional hobbyist. Credit where its due that FP Journe made a new split-second watch for Only Watch 2017, and (unlikely) might see the possibility that this may appear as a regular production piece! With the recent announcement of Only Watch 2017, it comes as no surprise to expect a feast of interesting timepieces up for viewing. Typically, most brands ... .
