In the Cat’s Eye collection, Girard-Perregaux speaks exclusively to women, with watches featuring diamond-setting and horizontal or vertical oval cases. The new Cat’s Eye Celestial has a mother-of-pearl dial with a radial guilloché finish, and a large moon phase display with a deep blue aventurine night sky. The large moon disc is almost 9 mm in diameter, and rotates once every 58 days – so it will need adjustment every so often. The dial is set with 33 diamonds, with another 62 on the case.
