To celebrate its return to the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie de Genève (SIHH), Girard-Perregaux unveils new and stunning creations, heirs of the icons on which the Manufacture has built its reputation over the centuries.
An icon from the 70s
In 1975, Girard-Perregaux presented a sporty and original model equipped with an octagonal polished bezel and an integrated bracelet. In 2017, the curtain rises on a new chapter in the history of the Laureato model becomes a true and complete Collection available in 4 sizes: 45 mm, 42 mm, 38 mm and 34 mm.
A bold design that reinterprets an icon of watchmaking tradition into a captivating high tech timepiece.
The Planetarium Tri-axial is one of the very few triple-axis Tourbillon in the watch industry. It defies gravity with the spectacular high speed 3D rotation of its Tourbillon, but also with its terrestrial globe making a rotation in 24 hours, offering an intuitive view of the time all over the world. Its impressive case design incorporates two sapphires domes and a side opening allwoing to admire the tourbillon from all angles.
In 1878, the Canadian engineer Sandford Fleming proposed to divide the globe into 24 time zones wherein the time would be the same. It was only in the early 1930s that the Genevan watchmaker Louis Cottier invented a watch displaying the time in all 24 time zones at once. In 1990, Girard-Perregaux presented its first world timer wristwatch and, in 2000, dedicated a whole collection to world timers : the WW.TC.
