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.
Constant Escapement L.M.
Constancy is a permanent quest for watchmakers. At Girard-Perregaux, this horological ‘holy grail’ has become a reality. Presented in 2008, the Constant Escapement revolutionised the very foundations of chronometry. Ten years after this major breakthrough, Girard-Perregaux introduces a new Constant Escapement L.M. model featuring a design that is more technical and contemporary than ever.
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.
A woman’s beauty lies in the perfection of her features, as well as the nobility of her bearing and the inner beauty that she radiates. The Cat’s Eye collection that Girard-Perregaux has dedicated exclusively to women was designed to reflect this intense aura of femininity, combining design excellence with a mechanical movement reflecting the finest traditions upheld by the Maison. Cat’s Eye Celestial, the latest addition to this prestigious line, infuses it with an emotional and subtly complex dimension.
