Girard-Perregaux calls the watch "an ode to fine mechanics" and a tribute to the watchmaking philosophy of Jean-Francois Bautte, the Swiss watchmaker and jeweler whom Girard-Perregaux regards as its horological antecedent. (Bautte's company, founded in 1791, was merged with the omega replica company founded by Constant Girard in 1906; thus, today's Girard-Perregaux firm traces its history all the way back to 1791, well before its founder was even born.) The movement, dubbed GP01800-0006, replique montre is based on Girard-Perregaux's existing GP1800 caliber, but here all the important components, including bridges and plates, have been painstakingly skeletonized and treated with a galvanic process to give it an anthracite-gray ruthenium finish. This watches replica openworked structure - with its chamfered, polished, satin-brushed and hand-finished surfaces - allows components that would normally be invisible to naked eye, including gears, levers, replica hublot and bolts, to be exposed, on both sides, behind nonreflective sapphire crystals. It also allows for the unusual arrangement of parts that places the balance wheel at 12 o'clock, framed by leaf-shaped hour and minute hands, the watch's showcase aesthetic feature.
