  • Catalogue Essay

    Girard-Perregaux was one of the very few watch manufacturers to have its own Research and Development department back in the 1960s. The Girard-Perregaux 1966 collection was produced in tribute to this era. The present watch features a manually-wound chronograph with column-wheel and allows the wearer to admire the chronograph mechanism from both sides of the movement through the glazed display back. The integrated chronograph movement is also less likely to influence the timekeeping and ensures accuracy of the timepiece.

  • Artist Biography

    Girard Perregaux

    Swiss • 1791

    Celebrating its 225th anniversary in 2016, the company earned its fame as the first vertically integrated Swiss watchmaking company, manufacturing high-grade movements, cases and dials within its premises. Particularly noteworthy are the brand's three-gold-bridge tourbillon pocket watches built by Constant Girard beginning in 1867 — considered amongst the most beautiful movement architectures ever made. An active participant in Switzerland's observatory chronometry competitions, the brand won so many precision awards that they were excluded from competing in 1901.

    Key models include nineteenth and twentieth century pocket watches with three gold bridges, modern tourbillon wristwatches with three gold bridges, minute repeating pocket and wristwatches, as well as sport watches such as the Laureato and Sea Hawk.
