The Watch Quote™ - November 23rd, 2016
The Swiss Haute Horlogerie Manufacture Girard-Perregaux envelops the prestigious PISA store situated at the centre of Milan on the occasion of an exclusive exhibition from November 16th until Saturday 19th.
As part of its 225th anniversary, Girard-Perregaux takes up residence in the temporary area of the PISA store to unveil its historical timepieces and latest fine watches. The timepieces are presented in an ethereal décor created with pages of history poetically recounting 225 years of prowess and watchmaking tradition.
Girard-Perregaux turns the pages of its history in a radiant and distinguished setting through its commemorative 225th anniversary limited edition creations, such as the Laureato of the nineteen-seventies or the 1957; an homage to the Gyromatic HF of 1966, both of which interpret the key watchmaking moments of the Manufacture with 80 patents. Among the novelties presented is the renowned Constant Escapement L.M. in titanium, a revolutionary movement which allowed the model to be awarded by the Aiguille d’Or prize at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève in 2013. Sharing space alongside the novelties are the historical timepieces very rare to see such as the famous enameled yellow gold cruciform pendant-watch signed «Girard-Perregaux», circa 1870 or the Hunter pocket watch, rose gold case, with the movement with three bridges, signature of Girard-Perregaux.
On November 16th, during an exclusive cocktail held at the PISA store, guests discovered among the marvelous timepieces the newest Circuito collection, a testimony to the rich history of Girard-Perregaux and the automotive world.
Situated at the centre of Milan, in Via Verri, the Flagship Store combines the elegance of a historic Palace, the atmosphere of a Lounge dedicated to Haute Horlogerie and the solemnity of a Temple of Time. Vittorio Carena, in art 7, on the occasion of the 75th anniversary since the founding of Pisa Orologeria, wanted to communicate a clear message in terms of architecture and style: a full interpretation and expression of the identity of the Company.
