Since 1791, Girard-Perregaux has been reinventing the long tradition of Swiss watchmaking, preserving and developing its unique expertise over a period of more than two centuries. As a fervent defender of the craftsmanship that goes into the creation of beautiful timepieces, Girard-Perregaux is one of the few authentic Swiss Manufactures, designing and producing both the external components of a watch and its ‘heart,’ the movement. More than simply an example of precision mechanics, each Girard-Perregaux timepiece is also a work of art, its spirit reflecting the care and attention lavished on it by its creators, from the engineer to the master watchmaker. Its collections are the result of a subtle marriage between tradition and state-of-the-art technology, with an ongoing commitment to innovation. The Girard-Perregaux Manufacture has registered nearly eighty patents in the field of watchmaking. The Swiss workshops bring together many different skills, in order to develop and conceive a complete portfolio of top-of-the-range movements and mechanical watch collections. This is an extraordinary world, observing the rules of an art concerned with quality and driven by passion.
