For many years prestigious watch manufactures have been seeking methods to improve on already establish complications such as the chronograph, tourbillon and minute repeating. However in the 2007 SIHH Girard-Perregaux released an overwhelming impressive wristwatch, The Vintage 1945 Jackpot Tourbillon Model with a novel new complication not seen on a wristwatch before.
This watch is unique in many different perspective, not only does it features the brand’s remarkable Golden Bridge Tourbillon, but it is also compose of a slot machine mechanism inspired by the “Liberty Bell”, a slot machine invented at the end of the 19th century. To activate the slot machine mechanism on the watch, one simply have to just pull the lever on the right side of the case. The three reels at 12 o’clock will then start spinning and from right to left, each wheel will stop individually whiling chiming from the activated striking mechanism.
The beauty of this watch lies not only in the innovative idea of Girard-Perregaux, but also the technical difficult in structuring the mechanism of a slot machine into a watch that fits on your wrist.
We welcome and encourage you to approach any specialist during the preview to have us display the beauty of the mechanism for you to see with your very own eyes.
