Girard Perregaux Rattrapante Foudroyante Chronograph for Ermenegildo Zegna's 20th birthday in China.

Nov 09, 2019,15:31 PM

Here you have the famous SF Foudroyante by Girard Perregaux, rebadged E. Zegna, in rose gold. 20 pieces. 40 mm x 15 mm, the normal size for that reference. 

A curiosity I discovered recently, which I wanted to share with you. 

Good or bad? 

For me, even if the watch is nice, I am not pleased to see Zegna's name on the dial, even though I am a big fan of this clothes maker.

Tribute or pity

It’s a great watch no doubt about it I can’t decide if putting up the zegna name is a tribute or a pity. I leaning towards pity as it makes the watch look a little bit cheap in my view

E Zegna is one designer one can buy with eyes closed - pure class (so far). Never over the top and top tier quality always. I dont mind the EZ name on the watch either (like Ralph Lauren

watches etc) But I dont understand '20th Bday IN China!' There are 200+ sovereign nations and these corp brands (now operate as trusts often) exist till perpetuity so how many of these ltd editions are we counting. The dilution is in GPs brand value IMO t...
