Respect tradition and embrace the future
The Double Flying Bridge Aston Martin Limited Edition is the latest product in the Girard-Perregaux Golden Bridge series, which has long been firmly committed to the brand’s DNA. In 1867, Constant Girard drew a pocket watch with three parallel bridges. Once an essential part of the movement, the bridges were given exquisite decoration and became a famous aesthetic design element. While GP Girard-Perregaux is proud of its heritage, it does not dwell on the past but embraces the future wholeheartedly.

Girard-Perregaux and Aston Martin share a common language in “luxury.” Both parties know maintaining a consistent design is as important as seeking breakthroughs. Consolidating this shared philosophy means firmly believing that mechanical components should evoke emotional solid resonance.

The watch abandons the conventional dial design and exposes the GP0840000-2164 movement, which is usually located on the back of the watch, on the front of the watch in an inverted manner. As a result, each functional component becomes part of the overall visual charm of the watch, faithfully adhering to the spiritual core of the Golden Bridge series. The new arrow-shaped bridge provides support for the transmission wheel train and balance wheel. The wearer can witness the interaction of different components and tell the passage of time together. Inheriting the tradition of Girard-Perregaux, the layout of the movement components is symmetrical, achieving a harmonious and unified appearance.

In contrast, the color of the axles pays homage to Aston Martin and its rich history of refined performance cars.
Essential power for outstanding performance
Power is a prerequisite for performance and the essence of Girard-Perregaux and Aston Martin’s works. The “fuel tank” of the Aston Martin Limited Edition Double Flybridge Watch – the barrel, is set at 1:30. The barrel is supported by a black hollow bridge bearing the Girard-Perregaux brand name. The watch is self-winding, drawing energy from the wrist’s natural movement thanks to a small rotor called a micro-rotor. The thickness of the micro-rotor is only 5.45 mm, which contributes to the slim appearance of the movement and makes it visible. The watch’s micro-rotor is engraved with the Aston Martin brand name, which complements the Girard-Perregaux brand name on the barrel. When designing the barrel and micro-rotor, the joint creative team took inspiration from the brakes behind Aston Martin’s DB12 spoked wheels, showing off sharp lines and extra openings.
