Elegance and precision. Two new models join the Girard-Perregaux 1966 Collection

Born in one of the most dynamic and glorious periods in the history of Girard-Perregaux, the 1966 collection pays tribute to the technical innovations of the Manufacture in the field of precision timekeeping.

Viewed from a purely instinctive standpoint, the concept of a traditional watch might tend to evoke a certain immutability and austerity. The exact opposite is true of the 1966 Collection by Girard-Perregaux, which stemmed from one of the most dynamic periods enjoyed by the Manufacture in La Chaux-de-Fonds and which saw it set up an R&D centre...

They were welcomed at Charlottenfels, Heinrich Moser's family home. It now houses the Moser Family Museum, where they...
