Girard - Perregaux

by Francois Chaille

Wristwatches are the ultimate collector's item and this handsome volume chronicles the history of a Swiss watch manufacturer that is an industry standard setter. Arriving at the crossroads of design and technology, Girard-Perregaux has created timepieces of superior quality and timeless elegance since 1791. The company designed the first wristwatch to replace the pocketwatch, set the quartz standard, built the timepieces used to record the first Zepplin flights and Formula 1 car races, and designed a watch exclusively available to Ferrari owners. Few watchmakers can boast as fine a collection; in an unceasing quest for innovation and improvement,

Girard-Perregaux has raised the mechanical movement of their watches to a degree of perfection. Amazing design intricacies and luxurious "complications," such as the tourbillon mechanism covered by three gold bridges, unfold in the close-up photographs of this book which includes a series of vellum overlays that show the inner workings of the watches. This stunning volume is created in the spirit of the great watchmaker, reflecting the great attention to detail and impeccable style for which the name Girard-Perregaux has become synonymous.
