Avatar

If you regularly follow our Girard Perregaux Forum, you know that in 2016, the Blue House introduced in the catalog the Esmeralda, but in a wrist watch, not like the ancestor which was one of the most delicious pocket watch ever made. Then, in 2018 we had a second edition, which was called " A secret " with a decorated case and a hinged case back. In 2019 we had a less sophisticated ( cleaner? ) version, in white gold. A photo of the three, side by side: And here is the link to my review, posted in 2019: .....Story

Some Girard Perregaux novelties.

Here are some of the novelties. One you know, but in a new ( to me ) case and dial combination. 1/ The Vintage 1945 Earth to Sky Edition: The case is in DLC Titanium, 36, 10 x 35, 25 mm big, with a sapphire case back and a polycristalline blue dial. The movement is automatic, the well known Cal GP 3300, beating at 28, 800 vibrations per hour, and offering a power reserve of 46 hours...Story

Hands on review of the Girard-Perregaux Free Bridge

Avatar
foversta
Girard-Perregaux presented the Free Bridge along with its Infinity version at the end of August during the Geneva Watch Days. This watch is in line with the brand's strategic direction, which aims to strengthen the two key collections in the catalog: the Bridges and Laureato collections. I appreciate this approach. Girard-Perregaux has suffered for many years from a lack of identifiable models that could have brought a positive impact on the entire catalog...Story

SIHH 2019: Hands on review on the Girard Perregaux Neo Tourbillon with three bridges QUASAR.

Avatar
amanico
The Quasar, hidden during the SIHH and unveiled at the 2019 Edition of Watch and wonders, is the fourth opus of the Neo Tourbillon with titanium bridges. Indeed, the first Neo Tourbillon was a revolution when it was introduced in the 2014 catalog. No gold bridges, but some sensual, even if less refined, titanium bridges, all in curves, but quite powerful, contrasting in an eye catching way with the warm 45 mm rose gold case. It had its charm, but for those who wanted to go farther in the concept watch look, .....Story

Hands on review of the Girard-Perregaux Quasar Light

Avatar
foversta
Girard-Perregaux unveiled the Quasar during the 2019 edition of Watches & Wonders Miami (that seems very far away ...). This watch can be defined as the reinterpretation of the Neo-Tourbillon Skeleton with a sapphire case. The ambition of the manufacture was clear: it was a question of giving a contemporary dimension to what makes the identity of the brand, the 3 bridges, in order to give it a new dynamic and rejuvenate its image. The Quasar is undoubtedly a beautiful watch with a significant contrast between .....Story

SIHH 2019: Girard Perregaux Esmeralda White Gold.

Avatar

Esmeralda: A magic name given to a pocket watch in the second half of the 19th Century. A rose gold Tourbillon Chronometer with gold bridges which received superb finishings: This legend saw the light, once again, in 2016, but in a wrist watch, this time. The 44 mm big, 14, 55 mm high case was in rose gold, sublime, even for the non colored gold watch I am. In 2018, Girard-Perregaux went farther in the homage, with the Esmeralda à Secret, a rose gold version with a decorated case this time, and a hinged case .....Story

Our dear Blomman already reviewed the Cosmos Titanium, so I will just share some thoughts and pictures on this watch, here. The Cosmos Titanium gives me some mixed feelings. I would say that it is innovative, original, romantic, even, but its biggest issue is... Its proportions...Story

Girard-Perregaux and the Ferrari connection

Avatar

Friends, we all know of the connection between Girard-Perregaux and Ferrari and the Girard-Perregaux Pour Ferrari collection. However, let’s have a closer look at how this all came about and what were the most remarkable creations during that partnership. The partnership with Ferrari and the idea to create a branded watch collection roots back to Luigi (Gino) Macaluso and his personal background and passion. When in 1992 Gino Macaluso bought the Maison Girard-Perregaux, he had already been part of the advisory .....Story

2019 Novelty: Girard-Perregaux Cat’s Eye Plum Blossom

crown comfort
Friends, this year Girard-Perregaux did as every year not forget about the Ladies. Besides the Ladies Laureatos the Cat’s Eye is really the most recognisable Ladies Girard-Perregaux watch. The Cat’s Eye collection is of considerable size already, but adding new versions is here even more important than it may be in the other collections. Having variety and every year a new reason to get a gift for our loved ones is a good strategy...Story
