The three dials are distinguished by three historic maps: The Pearl of Wonders, The Terrestrial Map and The New World “Novus Orbis”, and is limited to 18 watches per version.
The New World “Novus Orbis” (pictured) is ‘the most colorful of the maps contained in La Chambre des Merveilles, it displays creative fields populated with fragments organized into a mosaic’, according to Girard-Perregaux.
The craftsmanship is second to none, taking about 95 hours to create a single dial. The cutting and assembly of these micro-stones require extraordinary meticulousness, patience and artistry. The technique gives the impression that the land on the map floats, reinforced by the artist’s micro-painting in six different tones.
