  • Catalogue Essay

    'This is a stainless steel prototype chronograph watch that I designed with Luigi "Gino" Macaluso to try the Laureato with a round bezel. The sandblasted stainless steel gives the watch a great appearance and I particularly like the luminous hands and accents on the dial.'

43 Watches & Encounters The Laurent Picciotto Collection of Contemporary Watches Since 1791, Girard Perregaux has created watches of the highest quality. Founder Jean-François Bautte created and assembled all parts of the watch within his atelier, which was a true anomaly for any watchmaker at the time. Girard Perregaux was most famous for inventing the three bridges tourbillon. He presented his very first tourbillon with three gold bridges in 1867, and later patented this complication in 1884 in the United States. Today, Girard Perregaux creates some of the most complicated wristwatches of the modern era. The Girard Perregaux wristwatches in the following pages perfectly capture and represent the creativity and level of quality that Girard Perregaux is producing today.
