Exclusive Girard-Perregaux Watch in Tribute to Boucheron

Oct 18, 2010
Girard-Perregaux has created a new exclusive limited edition timepiece to celebrate its friendly cooperation with Boucheron. The two brands are united by a desire to create unique objects characterized by the finest craftsmanship.

The new Girard-Perregaux pour Boucheron watch demonstrates both refinement and watchmaking virtuosity. The round case makes one feel its modern yet timeless appeal. It was designed by Luigi Macaluso in 1985 for the brand’s Haute Horlogerie watches. The case is sculptured from pink or white gold and measures 41 mm in diameter. It is 30-meter water-resistant.

The case construction is equipped with a chamfered bezel with a light satin finish. The middle part of the case features exquisite curves extending into lugs. The case construction provides supreme comfort of wearing.

The heart of the watch is the brand’s in-house self-winding mechanical movement - GP03300-45 Calibre. Operating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, the 32-jewel movement offers 46 hours of power reserve. The sapphire crystal case-back allows to admire the intricacies of the movement.

Besides hours, minutes and small seconds it animates moon phases and large date displays. The date display is worth special attention – it is based on the brand’s patented system to guarantee superb readability lacking the separating line between the tens and units.

The system incorporates two discs, one of them transparent to make the tens and units of the date to be featured respectively. The virtually invisible disc is remarkably thin - just 0.10 millimeters! The movement also offers the instantaneous date change mechanism. Just imagine - the date jumps in 15/1000ths of a second.

The harmonious dial proudly displays the name of the two highly-respected brands. You will also notice Boucheron’s address: 26, place Vendome. The time is indicated by elegant ‘Dauphine’ hands. The moon phases are presented via a window at 6 o’clock.

The Girard-Perregaux pour Boucheron watch is presented on a black alligator leather strap fitted with an ardillon buckle. The timepiece, limited to 50 pieces for every case material, will be available exclusively in Boucheron stores.
