Why We Love This Watch

A Swiss watch brand that mostly flies under-the-radar, Girard-Perregaux is actually one of the oldest running watch manufacturers in the world. Originally founded in 1791, Girard-Perregaux found its name in 1856 upon Constant Girard and Marie Perregaux marriage. This gave rise to the Girard-Perregaux Manufacture in La Chaux-de-Fonds. From there, Girard-Perregaux won a number of chronometer awards at the Observatory of Neuchâtel around 1866 until 1876.

Girard-Perregaux was known for its own innovations and the Gyromatic is one of them. The Gyromatic was created in 1957 which created an innovation to not only make automatic watches more efficient but thinner as well. This gold plated beauty is the result of such innovation, bearing with it a unique, rounded hexagon shape which has a gold-toned dial. Such a unique shape is rare in today's watches and its beautiful marriage of gold tones gives you the attention that is not craved but admired. For the man who seeks to make a statement through class, this watch is for you.
