To celebrate the 2019 edition of 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.
Laureato Perpetual Calendar
Appearing in this unique, all-steel and asymmetrical configuration, the Laureato Perpetual Calendar asserts its status as a watch exuding a strong, architectural presence. Its blue dial adorned with a Clous de Paris hobnail pattern, against which the white indications stand out in striking contrast, sets the final touch to this resolutely modern timepiece.
A fresh iteration of the iconic Cat’s Eye
The Cat’s Eye Majestic, Celestial and Tourbillon models with their aventurine dial speak of a splendid golden age and creative inspiration that consistently delivers its very best – including in occasionally unexpected ways.
After bringing Laureato firmly back into the spotlight, Girard-Perregaux orchestrates an evolution of its icon that makes it even more powerful. Laureato Absolute is a distillation of watchmaking expertise, enhanced by a broader case middle with tauter lines. This new structure, entirely clad in black PVD-treated titanium energised by an electric blue ring, is now water-resistant to 300 metres.
Within the galaxy of new Girard-Perregaux launches, Cosmos vibrates on a separate wavelength. Stemming from the Bridges collection, the piece highlighted by the brand in 2019 is anything but nebulous. It reveals the hidden portions of the night sky and glows with a black light. The centrepiece of the "Earth to Sky" theme, this watch with tourbillon, sky chart and world time complications is composed of mechanical particles and poetic paradoxes.
Cat's Eye Plum Blossom
Cat’s Eye, the famous ellipse that has become the signature of the Maison’s women’s collection, appears this year attired in mother-of-pearl, aventurine and diamonds, shining more brightly than ever like pure, iridescent nocturnal lights. At its heart, the oscillating weight, a decorated bud, finely openworked by hand, reveals the invisible.
1966 "Earth to Sky Edition"
Blue as the earth. Black as the cosmos. In 2019, Girard-Perregaux is beginning a symbolic dialogue with the universe, which takes a chromatic turn with the 1966 "Earth to Sky Edition". Exposed to the solar wind, the characteristics of this fine and elegant classic remain unchanged. But thanks to a play of blue and black shades, its nature glides towards an astronomical dimension.
