The Sleeper Hit - Girard-Perregaux’s 1966 WW.TC in steel

Postby Racer-X » June 29th 2017, 6:35pm

by Felix Scholz "Girard-Perregaux is one of Swiss watchmaking’s best-kept secrets. The La Chaux-de-Fonds based brand offers a complete — and compelling — package, fine pedigree, and a catalogue that ranges from the highest of high horology, through to some more accessible (yet still exceptional) pieces. But, for whatever reason, GP has long lacked the sort of name recognition they deserve, and which is enjoyed by some of their Helvetican siblings. But it feels like that’s on the cusp of change. Girard-Perregaux is back at the SIHH, with a particularly strong and focused collection. And while the Laureato is their shining star, there are plenty of other worthy offerings in the catalogue."

Nice. But, they of course just had to make it with lugs intended for the useless, curved spring bars.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
