HIGH QUALITY SWISS WATCHMAKER SINCE 1791
Founded in 1791, Girard-Perregaux is one of the oldest fine watchmaking manufactures still in operation. This year, the company celebrates its 230th anniversary, a fitting testament to the brand’s watchmaking expertise, appreciated by those “in the know”.
The firm’s history is dotted with exceptional creations that skillfully blend aesthetics and functionality. These models include the iconic Laureato, born in 1975, as well as the legendary Tourbillon ‘With Three Gold Bridges,’ a watch that made the invisible visible, transforming bridges from just a technical element to an integral part of the timepiece - a first in watchmaking.
Girard-Perregaux’s place at the vanguard of horological innovation is confirmed by over one hundred recorded patents together with numerous prizes and distinctions. It remains one of the few watchmakers to retain Manufacture status for over two centuries by mastering all the required horological skills in-house and making watches infused with a notable degree of authenticity.
While Girard-Perregaux respects its heritage, it continues to look ahead, embracing new technologies, state of the art materials, and fresh takes on iconic shapes.
A Brand icon since 1867: the visionary Constant Girard, transformed bridges from a technical element into a visible and integral part of the timepiece, giving birth to the Tourbillon with Three Bridges, a very first in watchmaking.
The movement is no longer just a technical element of the watch but a design element in itself.
