Caring for your watch

THE LONGEVITY OF YOUR LEGACY GUARANTEED

 

Girard-Perregaux Customer Service strives to ensure that each stage of the client experience is of optimal quality, be it choosing and purchasing a watch, or the manner in which we accompany it throughout its life in terms of maintenance.
Whether your watch requires an overhaul or a repair, whether it is a model developed in the 1980s or one of the latest additions to our collections, we make sure that every watch emerging from an authorised GP workshop complies with the original functional and aesthetic specifications.

Each movement is entirely overhauled: the case and bracelet are polished and satin-finished to recapture their initial radiance. The rating precision and the water resistance are rigorously tested in order to guarantee the level of quality and reliability expected of a GP watch.

 

Maintenance of your watch

GP timepieces are designed to accompany several generations. To guarantee the longevity of your heirloom and to keep your watch in perfect working order, we recommend that you submit for periodic maintenance services, to be conducted exclusively in an authorised GP service centre, every three to five years.

Our main recommendations are as follows:

 

Mechanical watches (manual-winding or self-winding)

 

Mechanical watches should be overhauled every five years, or three years for non-water-resistant models. Quartz watches should be entrusted to an authorised agent every two to three years for a battery change.

 

Water-resistance models

 

We recommend an annual water-resistance test.

 

Authorised service

 

Girard-Perregaux maintenance services are guaranteed for one year by the authorised service centre that has performed the overhaul. Any intervention performed by a non-authorised agent nullifies the guarantee.

 

Manually wound

 

After each service, your watch must be manually wound before wearing it for the first time.
