It is not a secret nor a mystery that I really like the Constant Escapement. The concept / idea, the look, and this magic ballet of wheels and typical Girard Perregaux bridges on both sides. 

The only issue is the size... 48 mm is really huge. 44 mm would be perfect. GP went for a 46 mm case, but I really hope we'll a a slightly smaller one, one of these days. 



Wonderful photos, incredible!

The geometry of the movement is a true piece of art itself.

+1. One of these watches which are in my dream list. [nt]

It’s super cool I’ve handled the 46mm

Agree still large but super cool

Yes, agreed. 44 mm would be perfect. [nt]

It's a super cool watch. I could never own one though...

Because I am too afraid to hit it to get it running.

You’re absolutely right. You have to smack it a bit to get it started. But it’s one of my favorite watches of all; so interesting the motion of the movement. [nt]

Well, I think you can get used to a minimum of precautions. [nt]

I agree, Nicolas. Watching this watch in action is mesmerising. It also looks beautiful but tad too big for day to day activity ;).
