Full Frame – Girard-Perregaux Constant Escapement

Each week, I’ll be posting a new full resolution image that you can zoom into and pan around for yourself.

This week’s “Full Frame” post features the Girard-Perregaux Constant Escapement.

The image below is fully interactive, very simple to use, and enables you to fully explore the whole image at its full resolution of 100 megapixels. I recommend clicking the full screen icon, and then use the +/- icons to zoom in and out, and click-drag with your mouse (or use your finger on a touch interface) to pan around the image.

Told you there was a lot more detail to come😛. Here’s the remarkable silicon blade that is the driving force (literally!) of the Girard-Perregaux Constant Escapement. 6 times thinner than a human hair, you need an extraordinary camera system to show it at this level of detail. Once again, a crop from the original full frame image posted yesterday.
