Pre-Owned & Vintage Girard-Perregaux
Upon orders of Emperor Wilhelm I of Germany, in 1880, Constant Girard, developed an extremely innovative concept, the wristwatch. The first large-scale production of watches in history, 2000 were made for the German naval officers, but it was not until around 1900 that watchmaking became one of the flagship industries of the Swiss economy. By 1910, after Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin used his Girard-Perregaux watch to time the aeronautical trials of his airships, Girard-Perregaux’s reputation was established worldwide.
In 1930, for the first time, wristwatch sales exceeded that of pocket watches. The magnificent Minute Repeater Tourbillon with Gold Bridges is a testament to the superb craftsmanship and elegant design of the Girard Perregaux brand. Other models include the Laureato EVO3, Richeville Joaillerie, Vintage 1945, World Time, Bi-Axial Tourbillon, Ferrari F1, Gyromatic, Sea Hawk, Classic Elegance, many of which feature chronographs and moon phases.
