The collection was launched in Romania last week and includes the Tourbillon with three gold bridges and the company's most expensive and rarest item, the Opera III Power Reserve.
The latter is the most complex mechanism produced by the company so far and can play classical music from Mozart or Tchaikovsky. Clients wait from one to three years for their Opera III, said Gerard-Perregaux reps. So far, the company has produced only about 10 such timepieces. Tourbillon with three gold bridges is equally exclusive – 12 items are produced each year.
Until now, Romanian buyers were limited to equally up-market timepieces that came right off the store shelf, which lacked the exclusivity of having to wait years to get hold of it.
Girard-Perregaux is one of the manufactures in the international timepiece business, along with brands as Breguet, Vacheron Constantin and Patek Philippe.
