  • Catalogue Essay

    Launched in 2006, the ‘Challenger of Record’ was introduced as a limited edition series of 32 examples made to commemorate the famed Golden Gate Yacht Club and their participation of the 32nd America’s Cup.

    Displaying traditional horological craftsmanship with a touch of modern technology and aesthetics, Girard-Perregaux integrated a flying tourbillon escapement into a diver’s watch with a 3000 meter depth rating. To achieve such feat, a thick titanium case was implemented to withstand the pressures of the deep sea. Furthermore, two helium gas escape valves have been attached on both sides of the case band.

    The present example is offered with its original accessories including the certificate of authenticity and its original cylindrical presentation box.

    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.
