What makes a Girard-Perregaux special? A JamesEdition favorite, Girard-Perregaux is one of those few companies that continues to innovate without merely following the rest of the market, instead choosing to go their own way. Like they always have, for well over two centuries. On the other hand, being part of the absolute elite in the watch world, brands like Girard-Perregaux can afford to make whatever they want - people will buy them. If that isn't a sign of a successful luxury company, that what is?
Who wears a Girard-Perregaux? Lovers of haute horlogerie will find much to adore in Girard-Perregaux, whether it be the iconic three gold bridge tourbillon or any candidate from the range of complicated in-house movements. Even fans of quartz movements (there are some left, believe it or not) will find incredibly complicated electronic movements from GP, as it was instrumental in the introduction of the battery driven movements back in the day.
Exclusivity & Rarity:
Watches for the few, since 1791. The company slogan sits very well with us here at JamesEdition. Although modern Girard-Perregaux timepieces fetch quite hefty sums, some feel that certain vintage pieces from the 1950s and 1960s are criminally undervalued and a bulletproof investment for the future.
