The History

In order to lay claim to “manufacture” status, a watch brand must first prove its mastery of all the 30-odd watchmaking disciplines and unite them under one roof. It’s a prestige afforded to just a handful of Swiss brands, perhaps the least well-known of which is Girard-Perregaux. Don’t be put off by the relatively quiet profile, though. It belies a rich heritage dating back to 1791, when Mr Jean-François Bautte – whose workshops in La-Chaux-de-Fonds were acquired in 1906 by the bloodline of Mr Constant Girard and Ms Marie Perregaux – created his first watches aged just 19. Now owned by Gucci and Alexander McQueen’s Kering Group, this stalwart of the Swiss watch industry still hand-finishes its mechanics to elite standards, has mastered every complication (and invented a few of its own) and even has its own luxury sports line born of the 1970s, in the octagonal Laureato.

INNOVATIONS

Skeleton Crew

The new Neo-Tourbillon Skeleton variant of the legendary Three Gold Bridges disrupts Girard-Perregaux’s dyed-in-the-wool horological purism in spectacular sci-fi style. Instead of arrow-headed bridges in gleaming rose gold, we have taut, sinewy bodywork worthy of Batman, coated in stealthy PVD.

Flex The Technique

Inspiration can come from the most everyday occurrences. None more so that the case of Girard-Perregaux’s ‘Constant Escapement’, whose hair-thin silicon blade “flicks” between mirrored “S” configurations to keep every ticking pulse consistent: inspired by a train ticket being idly flexed by an engineer on his commute.

Captain Planet

The turn of the 21st century saw the introduction of Girard-Perregaux’s most useful technical innovation: the World Wide Time Control, or WW.TC. Thanks to a coupling mechanism linked to the hours hand, the time in any of the world’s 24 major time-zones can be instantly read, wherever you pitch up.
