  • Girard-Perregaux 3 gold bridges

    Swiss watchmaker Girard-Perregaux's Tourbillon with perpetual calendar. The cutaways in the dial and a sapphire-crystal case back allow the wearer to see most of the watch's interior parts at work. Girard-Perregaux is one of only a handful of watchmakers that produces its own movements rather than buying them from a supplier and retrofitting them for specialized functions.

  • Jacques Lemans 'Mozart' watch

    Jacques Lemans celebrates the 250th anniversary of the birth of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) with a line of watches in the composer's honor. The watch on the right features a reproduction of one of the few paintings of the Austrian composer and a copy of his signature. These limited-edition watches will be available only in 2006.
