TRI-AXIAL TOURBILLON – GIRARD PERREGAUX
The Tri-Axial Tourbillon represents a major success for Girard-Perregaux, a historic specialist in the mastery of this precision watch mechanism. This is a new step for the Manufacture in its quest for chronometric perfection with a high-speed tourbillon on three separate axes.
A complex mechanism aimed at optimizing chronometric precision, the tourbillon has been a specialty of Girard-Perregaux for over a century and a half. Once again, the Manufacture at La Chaux-de-Fonds demonstrates its mastery of the subject, taking its search for precision even further with the Tri-Axial Tourbillon.
NEO-TOURBILLON WITH THREE BRIDGES – GIRARD PERREGAUX
The Tourbillon with Three Bridges, an iconic timepiece created nearly 150 years ago by Girard-Perregaux, has undergone a quantum leap in design. The Manufacture has transformed its legendary Three Bridges model into a new standard in design and watchmaking craftsmanship. The architecture and codes from which it derives its strength and originality have been preserved: however the changes made are captured in the design of the Bridges, the shape of the crystal, and in the heart of the completely redesigned caliber. Crafted with an avant-garde spirit that breaks away from the norm, the Neo-Tourbillon with Three Bridges showcases the Manufacture’s potential for innovation and its ability to honor history while embracing the future.
CONSTANT ESCAPEMENT L.M. – GIRARD PERREGAUX
Girard-Perregaux opens a new chapter for its revolutionary Constant Escapement L.M.: the Aiguille d’Or award winning timepiece at the 2013 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève is now available in pink gold.
Girard-Perregaux’s Constant Escapement L.M. debuted in 2013, marking one of the brand’s most exciting innovations in its history. As the culmination of several years of research and development, it was the very first constant force escapement to be successfully placed in a wristwatch. The feat is an advanced and sophisticated solution to a quest that has perplexed clockmakers and watchmakers since the beginning of time, constant force – as such it is a victory over decreasing power in traditional mechanical watches to achieve greater precision and regularity.
TRAVELLER WW.TC – GIRARD PERREGAUX
Ever since the company was founded in 1791, Girard-Perregaux watch collections have contributed to the art of stylish traveling. The new Traveller WW.TC watch in pink gold continues this long tradition; the perfect accompaniment for those accustomed to long journeys, this model is now available in a seductive pink gold version.
The history of Girard-Perregaux is intertwined with the successive stages in the development of world traveling and globalization. The new Traveller WW.TC Pink Gold watch is a tribute to this inspiring past. The timepieces invented since its creation provide ample illustration of this involvement, as do the countless journeys of its founders and their successors, always willing to expand their overseas presence to favor the Brand’s development. Around 1830 Jean-François Bautte was already making pocket watches that showed the time in two different places at once. By 1860 François Perregaux had become the first Swiss watchmaker to settle in Japan on a long-term basis so as to develop his business interests there.
