The GP Vintage Three Bridges Tourbillon  4 Comments


I have not been one who is enamoured by tourbillons due to the astronomical cost of the complication and its disputed value in providing greater accuracy in light of today's materials and technology used in watches.
However, there is no doubt that the tourbillon complication is amongst the most respected by collectors as it was until recently only the domain of a few watch houses.
For the longest time, there was only one tourbillon that I felt deserve some respect - the famous GP three bridges tourbillon. Its symmetrical layout and beautiful execution has made these timepieces wonderfully collectible. As a subject of photography, the three bridges is full of great detail.
While I do not wish for a tourbillon (what ever brand) in my collection, a GP Three Bridges would be for me the first on the list - if I ever decide to have one.
Have a look at the photomontage and see if you agree with my view of it being one of the most desirable tourbillons today. CLICK HERE to see the photomontage.
P.S. - this beautiful timepiece was photographed with the kind courtesy of Cortina Singapore.
