The most important innovation in the watch is just how curved it is -almost impossibly so. Girard Perregaux must have worked overtime to get the little manually wound movement to even work. The case literally wraps around your wrist, and I find it quite comfortable. The relatively modest size and thin nature of the watch is a great departure from other larger watches that we have been seeing lately.
Not only is the watch smaller, but Girard Perregaux made a point to make the entry level steel version of the watch (seen above in rose gold) actually entry level priced for the luxury brand, starting at about $8,000. Not cheap, but "value priced" from the boys at GP.
