  • Catalogue Essay

    Initially born in 1976, Girard-Perregaux’s Casquette was an innovative quartz wristwatch, much sought-after by watch aficionados and style-conscious collectors. Drawing from its precursor, the 2022 Casquette 2.0 is a new model that retains the design DNA of the 70s, paired with a subtle modern twist.

    With augmenting wearer comfort in mind, the watch is encased in scratch-resistant ceramic and a Grade 5 titanium caseback which are not only hypoallergenic but also offer an exceptionally low mass of 107g. Closed with a titanium deployant clasp, the ceramic bracelet is fitted with a rubber interior that improves flexibility and sits nicely on the wrist. Perfectly fusing both form and function, the upgraded timepiece features a new quartz movement with added functions like a second timezone and a chronograph.

    Discontinued in 1978, only 8200 pieces of the original Casquette were released on the market. Continuing the legacy of the collector’s piece, the revived Casquette 2.0 is produced in a limited edition of 820 pieces, confirming that this whimsical and unusual watch is indeed, rare. A beautifully designed and practical timepiece, the present swiss-made digital watch is offered in ‘like-new’ condition with its original accessories, making this a fantastic opportunity to acquire a Girard-Perregaux creation like none other.

  • 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.
