The Amazing Latest Sapphire Crystal Watch Introduced By Girard-Perregaux

As per the current reports, Girard Perregaux has revamped and reintroduced its one of the highly sought after watch: The Quasar.

Bringing things a stage more, this year the Quasar accompanies spans which are likewise built of sapphire gem which is the second hardest substance on earth other than steel, the component is uncommonly hard to produce and accordingly accompanies a sticker price to suit.

The watch appeared precisely a year back and highlighted the stunning effect of the renowned Three-Bridges instrument of the watch brand in skeletonized titanium housed in sapphire gem.

The current Quasar Light is $100,000 more costly than the $294,000 titanium-bridged variant and will be restricted to just 18 parts (its predecessor isn't capped, but production remains extremely small at the most effective manufacturing capability of the produce it can create just three every month).

The production of sapphire on watch bridges at such limited measurements is an incredible challenge and an expensive endeavor, but it does have an overwhelming effect on architecture. The sapphire crystal is formed by mixing oxygen and dihydrogen ions to almost 3,000 degrees Kelvin (or 4,940 degrees Farenheit). A sapphire crystal disk is produced which is then carved, machined, drilled, domed, and painted using diamond-made tools (another cost factor), which take more than 200 hours of work. The content is one of the supreme artistic declarations of the watchmaking, allowing for a degree of horological voyeurism that some collectors may find irresistible.

In the Quasar example, it provides a 360-degree view of the internal workings of the watch as well as its tourbillon, which is driven by a unidirectional automated winding mechanism with a white gold micro-rotor. Both the tourbillon and the bridges are secured for a silver finish with a titanium mainplate coated in sand-blasted rhodium. Titanium mainplate from the previous Quasar had a NAC injection, comparable to PVD coating, to send off a gray shade.

As reported in the new market research forecast from the Market Research Store, by 2026, the global crystal watch market will grow at a healthy CAGR in terms of USD million in the coming years.

The Quasar is undoubtedly the highlight in the current collection by Girard-Perregaux, providing a combination of watchmaking expertise and modern design that looks unlike anything else on the market. Buyers that purchase a Quasar appear to be buyers of brands that trend more contemporary like Hublot and Richard Mille; both brands are popular for their creations of sapphire crystals; Richard Mille's RM 56-02, launched in 2014, came up with a price tag of over $2 million which makes the Quasar seem like a bargain by comparison.
