  • Catalogue Essay

    Established in 1856, Girard-Perregaux was at the vanguard of excellence in Swiss watchmaking, and today is known 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. As 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 from the brand include 19th and 20th century pocket watches with three gold bridges, modern tourbillon wristwatches with three gold bridges, and their Art Deco inspired Vintage 1945 collection.
    The present Vintage 1945 XXL, No. 28, is part of a tradition by Girard Perregaux to produce technical watches that takes the wearer back to a period of practical elegance. The case design evokes the early 20th century with a curved case, which fits neatly on to the wrist. The lines are fluid and less structural, creating the perfect harmony of form and function.

    The present example in pink gold is in excellent condition and enhanced by the black dial with pink gold numerals. The watch is an extremely attractive example of this key model. It is a welcome reminder of the past elegance and harmony of early 20th century horology.
