And only an introduction it will be with letting the photos speak for themselves. Why? Because I’m still speechless on the impression this watch has left with me. Truly truly amazing! Even I had only like 15min with this watch at SIHH, it was love at first sight and murder when I had to give it back. The design and history… The details… The finishing… The sparkle… On my wrist…Scotty: beam me out of here...Story

blomman Mr Blue
Within this year’s theme for Girard-Perregaux watches “Earth to Sky”, the brightest shining star is the Bridges Cosmos. While wearing this piece, encapsulated on your wrist will be a micro cosmos!

Let’s start with the obvious: This is a large piece, 48 mm in diameter and 22.32 mm high. [Edit: correction of height measurment] The case has the .....Story

SIHH 2019: Live shots and review: Girard-Perregaux Neo Bridges Earth-to-Sky edition

Friends, let’s start with coverage of this year’s new releases from Girard-Perregaux at SIHH 2019. As usual, during the show, the booth is very crowded and you don’t really get time to deeply appreciate all the models nor do you have good natural light to take some decent photos. However, live shots will always bring a better idea on a watch than press release photos. So let’s start with one watch that has been released this year under the theme of „Earth-to-Sky“ from Girard-Perregaux...Story

Girard-Perregaux: Review MIMO CENTRIC – An Early Regulator

Avatar
blomman Mr Blue
As you may know in the early part of the 1900, Girard-Perregaux and MIMO were managed by the same owners. Due to that the brands shared several models with just the name on the dial different. Like the Large Date from the 1940s: GP Catalogue 1940 – MIMO 1940s – Another example of these models which were featured by both brands was the GP Regulator or MIMO CENTRIC. Not too far apart you can spot these for sale in bad shape or with repainted dials… But to find one in good original condition takes time… I have .....Story

Girard-Perregaux Sea Hawk for over seven decades, what I have collected so far

Avatar
crown comfort
Friends, Let’s have a closer look at the Sea Hawk family from GP. As the name gives it away, the “Sea Hawk” has some connection with water, but as the Sea Hawk as a model dates back all the way to the 1940s, you should not expect that those early Sea Hawks were any kind of a Diving watch. There was a sister model from around the same time, the Sea Scout and both the very early Sea Hawk as well as the Sea Scout claimed some basic water resistance and given the times, had more of a military theme then a Diving ... ...Story

Underappreciated Girard-Perregaux’s from the 1990s – Part V: Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 Chronograph Ref 2599

Friends, It is time to conclude the little series of underappreciated Girard-Perregaux watches from the 1990s. In Part V we will go to the end of the decade, century and millennium all the way to 1999/2000. We have seen in this series quite a number of “Vintage” models, i.e. modern watches that were modelled after vintage museum pieces (Vintage 94 in Part IV and Vintage 1996 in Part III or from the 70s; Laureato 8010 in Part II) so it should be no surprise that we conclude this series with yet another “vintage-inspired” .....Story
