Although the history of GP can be traced back to 1791 to Jean Francois Bautte, the name Girard-Perregaux first appeared in 1856 after the marriage of Constant Girard-Gallet and Marie Perregaux.
Today, GP is one of the few remaining independent watch manufacturers, whose Triple Golden Bridge Tourbillon has set the beauty and mechanical standards in the wristwatch world.
GP not only gives us a constant stream of beautiful and interesting watches, but is also a significant supplier of watch ebauches to the industry.
We hope this forum will be a place to learn and share knowledge and appreciation about Girard Perregaux.
