Girard and Perregaux have been experimenting with different shapes and materials for over 230 years. Their iconic Bridges collection includes some of the most classic and modern designs in the horological world.
In 1906, Girard-Perregaux watches took over the Maison of Jean-François Bautte in Geneva, inheriting Bautte’s prestigious clients and surpassing his use of enamel, pearls, and gemstones. The brand has been elevating the technical elements of watches to works of art for two centuries. Their Manufacture in La Chaux-de-Fonds has instilled pride in their heritage and amazement in master watchmakers.
They created a sporty and elegant watch in 1975, and in 2016, reinvented the iconic La Esmeralda Tourbillon. This year, they announced the Free Bridge, pushing the boundaries of innovation and creation with ‘aerial bridges’ and a sculptural movement with an escapement made of high-tech silicon.
