Girard-Perregaux Watches boasts a rich and illustrious history in the world of Swiss “Haute Horlogerie” spanning more than two centuries. Beginning in 1791 when Jean-Francois Bautte, an exceptionally talented watchmaker and goldsmith created his first timepiece at the tender young age of 19 laying the groundwork for Girard-Perregaux Watches. Aside from being a skilled craftsman, he was a forward thinking industrialist and brilliant businessman who managed to attract the royal courts of Europe who regularly came to visit his Manufacture in Genève, Switzerland and commissioned special watch designs made by him. In 1856 the ‘Bautte’ watch making house was absorbed by Constant Girard and Marie Perregaux, a husband and wife team, who then renamed the storied enterprise Girard-Perregaux Watches.
The newly minted Girard-Perregaux Watches was a prize winner at the Universal Exposition of Paris in1867 for an original Tourbillon and continued to experiment with complicated movements reaching the pinnacle when Girard-Perregaux Watches introduced the “Tourbillon with three gold bridges” in 1884. This was truly a masterpiece and swept the awards repeatedly until 1900 when it was excluded from competitions worldwide.
Girard-Perregaux has since accumulated quite a few patents for original watch making concepts that have fascinated the world of horology. In 1965 they produced the Gyromatic HF, a mechanical movement with a record breaking frequency of 36,000 beats per hour and in 1970 Girard-Perregaux manufactured the first quartz movement boasting 32,768 vibrations per hour, remaining the industry standard today.
